    Good plans but I wish they'd offer an option between a metered 1Gbps and an unmetered 250Mbps.

    Prices to expensive.in my eyes. I think they will fail in US.

    Same.

    Yoked or Yolked? You decide.

  • hzrhzr Member

    Great price, this is incredibly cheap for the location, we currently pay more than 10x this in Portland,,

    FYI portland we are talking over $100 for an intel atom with 1 disk being the norm

  • @TheXO said:
    Are IPs one time only or.. ?

    Yup. Next time, just read the link Jesse mentioned..

    Up to 256 IPs with no monthly fees (excluding setup fees)

  • FHRFHR Member, Provider

    That's not the same configuration and is more expensive.

    • No RAID, Single HDD
    • Less powerful CPU
    • Less bandwidth
    • No DDOS protection.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm sure you get a lot more hand-holding with Hivelocity than OVH. But comparing only price/performance ratio, OVH seems like a much better choice.

    Routing is not optimized just like others. 50-70ms to Seattle networks as it gets routed to CHI/NY/LA first.

    Quite expensive compared to the stuff at BHS and even with regular low-end US dedi hosts. It will be more interesting if they offer VPS in Portland similar to other OVH locations.

  • SetsuraSetsura Member

    Looking forward to different offers later on, might buy one of these for a month to mess around with though.

    Will shill for Pop-Tarts(must be strawberry flavour).

    Guess OVH is too lazy to peer with any useful peer or transit provider at SIX even if they have a 10G port there....

    What's the test IP address?

    Going to need a lot more than 10Gbit on SIX if you're OVH.

    They seem to be actually in Hillsboro, Oregon (right next to Portland).

    Maybe put a caching reverse proxy here for the cheap bandwidth.

    This is what I keep waiting on...some VPS or Public Cloud in their US locations.

    ? Quebec is the province, not the city.

    As far as I've seen with OVH/SYS/KS they've only ever advertised Beauharnois, not any other city (i.e. Montreal).

    You are all talking about cheaper options in the same area. My question is, who is the cheaper option with comparable specs?

    USDedicated - $130 for a server with 10TB bandwidth and 4Gbps DDOS protection. +$600 for unmetered bandwidth (granted, it's 1Gbps vs 500Mbps)
    ReliableSite - Latest 1270 they have is v3.

    OVH only offers 250 Mbit/s on their models in the US.

    You're only looking at hardware generation. The performance difference between and a 1270v3 and v6 is minimal. You're factoring out that OVH support is too put it nicely, shit. Both of these providers answer my ticket in less than 12 hours and actually solve the issue as well. Solving issues at OVH takes, most of the time, a month if not at all.

    OVH US is a totally separate company with different CEO and different people though. I can't compare as I've not used them yet.

    OVH UK has a separate board as well and their support and network are poor to say the least.

    There are none, just no one likes the pricing compared to other OVH DCs. I don't know anyone offering something comparable with new gear, unmetered bandwidth, etc on the west coast.

    The main reason I'm holding off right now is because I don't think it's enough of a discount to be a guinea pig in their new DC. Would rather wait for them to iron out any network kinks and up their west coast peering before dropping $100/mo.

    Regardless of pricing, bandwidth, etc., until routing is fixed just like all of the other new locations it isn't appealing. Psychz LA for example has 100ms+ lower latency to Asia last I checked.

    Why would you be comparing BHS to Oregon if you're in NJ anyway? OR is 2000+ miles further than BHS.

  • KrisKris Member

    MasonR said: Why would you be comparing BHS to Oregon if you're in NJ anyway?

    Yes, yes it is.

    I get latency of less than 80ms to AWS Oregon.

    Look at the MTR. The extra stop in BHS to get to Chicago & Palo Alto to get to Oregon adds some time. Similiar to Comcast's backbone where they keep it on their network as much as possible to avoid transit costs.

    Not ALL traffic is routed through BHS, however. You’d only be looking at Oregon location if you’re serving west coast/Asia.

    This routing is terrible... I get better latency to certain Asian country and to western EU than to this OVH DC that's two states away from me. How is that even possible????

    Seems that everything has to hit either BHS or RBX before it can reach the actual datacenter...

  • Just wanted to say that the routing issues everyone is experiencing have been acknowledged, and a resolution that mitigates the latency and geographic bouncing around is being actively worked towards.

  • saibalsaibal Member

    Source?

  • Do you need a source? they obviously are not going to keep it as is.

  • saibalsaibal Member

    I was looking more for a road map for this. OVH is not known to be a fast mover. Hopefully they sort this soon.

  • Why is everyone hammering on their routing? It's going to change. You people are talking about it like you all forget that the internet is not a concrete highway.

    It's been the same with all their new sites. Eventually they sort it out.

    Singapore hasn't been sorted out after a year. Why would anyone trust OVH's promises? It's not like these servers are free.
