Request for a Dedicated Server

Request for a Dedicated Server

Hey Lowendtalk! :)

I am currently in need of a dedicated server and wanted to ask you guys for some help.

My requirements are:

  • Dual CPUs (no decade old CPUs though! :( )
  • 24GB RAM minimum;
  • 1TB HDD minimum;
  • /29 IP Space;
  • Some form of DRAC/iLO; and
  • Ideally located in Europe or Mid/Eastern US but open to suggestions. (Amsterdam or UK would be most ideal).

My maximum budget is $50 per month.

Thanks guys in advance for the help! :)

    Well.. A decade is 10 years.. the L5520 is from 2009 which makes it under a decade old ;)

    Budget is too low for your requirements.

    I've fine with L5520/5630's (things around that time).

    Budget is fine also, I've seen some stuff pop up for this price (no longer available though!). If a provider can suggest alternative specs, go for it. I'm easy! :)

    We have some old dual quad cores (L5630), which almost fit your budget in Bulgaria. Though, it's far away from the UK.

    You got me there. It's Sunday. Had a long week. Don't remember the release date of each CPU like that :p

    I think those dual L55* will be comparable to a modern 4-core e3 or i7, so if you can consider one of those, Hetzner has lots of choices in your price range.

    If you'd sell for E3v5, we could work out something better than your requirements are for ~$75 / mo in London.

    PM if Interested.

    Depends on the task. If you're virtualizing, take more cores over less but bigger ones.

    Benchmarking is just an overall performance number, but there's a good reason that there are so many CPU models/variants. Each does have a marketed use/purpose.
