Looking for cheap server with 4TB Storage

Hello,

I want to upload and share .mp4 files (not porn, just videos (.mp4 file)) with 4TB HD Storage and with 1GBPS network speed in all corners of the world except Lithuania. If possible, money guarantee included for testing. My budget is € 32/month.

Thank you!

    Why the hate for Lithuania?

    Here lies Nekki. He loved massive amounts of storage, K-Pop and calling people cunts.

    hetzner auctions?

    Providing less than /64 means "we are clueless about IPv6". My geekbench results. I haz BuyVM, HostHatch, Online, ServaRica, Veesp.

    You will love it in beautiful Romania. @cociu

    Actually if you don't need raid you might be better off with a Hetzner auction server. 2x 3TB drives gives you around 5 TiB usable, for around 20 euro/m ex-vat.

    Is there any money guarantee on Hetzner auction?

    @edit: http://prntscr.com/jq6sgb Do you know if this plan has 1GBPs connection speed?

    There's the usual 14 day guarantee but if you overuse it, Hetzner stops selling to you. They are older servers with crappy old disks so if your data isn't backed up I wouldn't recommend this approach. Their network is good in EU but bad other places, and you don't say where you are. Still, if it fits your requirements it's a terrific value.

    The price is really good, but I'm afraid. I can't have any problems in HD.

    If you are not going to backup, then, you will eventually have problems in HDD. Disks fails, even new ssd disk fails, and the price for the amount of space does not help. Also, if you will have high i/o there and/or transcoding, then, a storage vps will not do your job. Either rise a bit your budget or lower your expectations.

    Yes, I'm able to backup. But it's hard upload again 4TB of data If HD got problems, because I've 50mbps network speed in my house. Do you know If is often HD issues in hetzner? Also, I dont know exactly what is I/O limits. I'll Just use the server to share .MP4 files, I dont know If It reach I/O limits.

    RAIDing the disks can help (so you get only about 2.5TiB usable) but really you have to have backup. The Hetzner disks are old and crappy, but that doesn't mean new disks won't fail. They are only somewhat less likely to fail.

    Hetzner also has a nice backup product (StorageBox, 20 euro for 5TB if I remember right). That would be a good companion to one of the auction servers. It uses raid 6, I think. Or you could just get two of the auction servers and mirror them.

    Backup in your house with those speeds is a no-no. You have to rent another cheap server (dedi or vps) to backup with decent speeds from datacenter to datacenter.
    No, HDD issues are not often on Hetzner, but then again, it is not something you can predict.
    If you grab a dedi, there are no i/o limits because all the hardware is yours. Limits do exist only to vps. What exactly is the usage of the server?

    Something like this, but for a backup, I would not go with the same provider, even if it's Hetzner, a big well reputable company. I would prefer another company in another location, even better, in another country that is close to the original (for the speed).

    I keep hearing this and there is logic to it, but in the real world I don't know anyone who does it that way. Every company I've worked at in the past N years has all its stuff in AWS including its backups. Since these are static mp4s though, another good place to back it up could be OVH Cloud Archive. There is a 0.01e/gb transfer charge in both directions but storage is just 0.002e/gb/month. So that's geo-separated (it's in France) but they have very good connectivity (direct peering) to Hetzner.

    TransIP offers attached storage in 2Tb increments to their VPSes.
    Cheapest vps is € 10 p/m, and every 2Tb extension is also € 10 p/m.
