    OVH VPS 2016 feedback

    Hello,

    I want some feedback from users that have been using the "new" OVH VPS SSD line.
    I am planning on moving a few customers for shared hosting there (4-5 wordpress sites) and wanted some opinions on their performance from users that have been using those for some time.

    Also I am referring to the EU locations only.

    Thank you.
    George

    • We use a number of the 8gb instances for everything from Jupyterhub to Celery clusters.

      They work quite well, and you can't beat them for the price.

    • Why not use the search engine? There is plenty of results.

      Now, from a personal experience it is pretty good. Network is great and you get almost "dedicated" CPU thread. But, if you have disk intensive tasks I would look elsewhere as the disk I/O is normally lower than most VPS...

    • Some IPs are blacklisted by hotmail/m$ (possibly by default).
      Network is quite limited: in <100 mbps, out < 20 mbps. Network is shared so you may get outbound within ~10-50 mbps. But average is 20.

      Hardware is good. Fast ssd drives.

      Control panel still sucks. A bit hard to manager a lot of servers, especially to remove a server. You have to wait till it expire, but in the billing page I do not see any label attached to the server so I could determine which server I want to expire.

      Network connectivity is better than Leaseweb premium network. I've tested tested their network a lot. But still, I think vultr is better, a bit expensive though.

      Source? Granted we are mostly internal traffic from message queues, but have always seen full 100mbps speeds.

      I never have any problem reaching 100mbps up and down with their VPS SSD line, using about 15 machines.

    • Thank you all for your taking time in answering this.

      Basically I wanna know about stability.
      The IOPS and such wont be a problem since I am getting around 1000 unique visitors monthly at the moment from all the sites combined. Nothing big.

      As for the network according to my search people dont have trouble getting the 100mbps on their vps so maybe that happens on overloaded nodes? My guess ofc.

      Still more feedback is appreciated, I dont actually need benchmarks.
      Mostly looking for everyday use feedback

      Thank you.

    • you can also use the ssd vps as instances via their public cloud range. that way you can attach additional hard disks, do snapshots or use vrack. yet you cannot order additional IPs on that ones like with the standalones.

      most recommended Provider: First-Root KVM Power-Edition /w SSD

      ... but if you have spares IPs you can attach them to your VPS. Up to 256 I think. I have a /27, a /29 and a /30 attached to my VPS 2016. It works great.

      Just my internal tests.

      Ok, lets see.

      1 test.

      We see 23.

      2 test from the same VPS

      Now we see 93.

      So it looks like the network is shared

      Yes, we never said the network is 100MB/s IN+OUT dedicated

    • The same from another speedtest providers

    • My DC is GRA. Maybe in CA they do not have such problems.

    • trnj said: My DC is GRA. Maybe in CA they do not have such problems.

      I don't have any issue hitting 100Mbps in or out and I have had quite a few of their SSD VPS 2016, Cloud VPS 2016, and the new RAM one.

    • Same here, VPS SSD1 @ ~100 Mbit/s to many locations, each time, both in and out.

      Providing less than /64 means "we are clueless about IPv6". I haz Aruba, IonSwitch, OneProv, Veesp.

      GRA?
      All my VPS SSD 1 servers in GRA have unstable out.

      Interesting.

      Does the SBG location have good peering with de-cix?

      Edit: NVM. http://fra.smokeping.ovh.net/smokeping?target=OVH.DCs
      Can't believe I never noticed this tool before. :D

      Down with the sic_K_ness...
      The doctor might be going K-razy with the low end spirit. 😉

    • To host few websites, a VPS SSD 3 will be perfect and don't worry about the network speed, for web hosting there is no difference between 50 and 100Mbps

      I don't recommend you the VPS Cloud series because Ceph storage provide high-availability but it's also increase the latency and the IOPS are not very good.

      Just a note to the person above who mentioned the IPs are blacklisted by Microsoft (Hotmail), this is true but it takes less than 24 hours to verify IP ownership via SNDS and get mail accepted. Otherwise there's no actual blacklists on the IPs, since Microsoft doesn't have their own blacklisting service.
