Low End Backup Server

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but I'm assuming it is :)

We've be searching for a decently priced backup server, that I plan to use for SolusVM FTP backup use. The best price I've found so far is from FDC Servers, http://fdcservers.net/specials.php. I'm looking at "Backup Server 2", (E5200, 4GB RAM, 2x2TB HDD, 1Gbps Port) for $99. It seems like they have pretty good reviews, but I'm here to see if there are any places that may offer a better deal than FDC.

    as far as i know Solusvm automated backup is a failed system

    get OVH if you large disk space (ofcuz shitty connections)

  • Choopa had a 8TB backup server deal for $60/month, not sure if its still available

    there are lots of abusers in OVH, i cant really expect much from it

  • Holy shit FDCServers is expensive... $299 for setup of a 2TB disk? I'd rather build my own server and colo it.

  • @Randy I'm getting LITERALLY capped 100Mbits on my kimsufi, there are abusers, but only on Kimsufi :]

    @eastonch Yeah, their base prices are good, but their upgrades are really expensive.

    i see.

    what is your budget and specifications?

  • SimpleNodeSimpleNode Member, Provider

    @Randy Something around $100. Basically as much storage as I can get at that price, and hopefully something located near/in Dallas.

    FDC backup server special 1 is really cheap. Can this only be used as backup? Otherwise its enough power for some nginx/php

  • Or just get a Kimsufi for 18 dollars.

    Sounds totally reasonable. Have you checked the HDD prices lately? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136579

    I guess so. I just don't like paying so much for things up front :P

    Thanks, however I think I may just go for that FDCServers Backup server. I haven't really found a better deal.

    @SimpleNode so let me get this strait, you are wanting to backup all of your vps customers to an external network on a regular basis? Hope you have a good connection/plan to pay out the rear end for more bandwidth you don't need.

    This will be for the "Central Backup" function in SolusVM. I don't plan on doing automatic backups - our customers can use the central backup button when they want.

    This is probably the best feature of SolusVM ! it's unfortunate that pretty much all providers have this feature disabled..

  • @SimpleNode my experience shows that maybe 10% of the users actually use this function, although we enable it for everyone. So you probably don't need all that much backup space for this.

    I see. I kinda expected it to be more popular, as it's a extremely useful feature of SolusVM.

    The older offers on LEB use to have this enabled.. I recall chicagovps, newwebsite virpus and alien layer to name a few.. it's just the newer provider's don't have this enabled I guess cause it chews up a lot of resources..

  • There is another problem too. The latest SolusVM installer does not support installing central backup servers. If you don't have an old copy of the installer which supports it - you are screwed.

  • @RDS100 I don't think its supported anyway, hence "Deprecated".

    the backup system is broken? or did anyone get it to work

    I installed the backup server last night playing around, all works as advertised, still not going to enable it

  • @miTgiB What one did you use? I tried all of them and they all seem to be missing central backup.

    v1 and the central backup is labeled depreciated yet still installs properly
