Xeon E3-1246v3 & i7-4770 @ Hetzner for €21!!

Last night and this morning I saw some Xeon E3-1246v3 or i7-4770 32GB RAM 2x2TB or 2x240 SSD servers come and go super quick for €21 excluding VAT!! I grabbed one and thought to share if you are looking for a dedicated for such unbelievable price!

    No problem, price is seriously amazing. Routing leaves a bit to be desired but as long as one can life with that it's a killer deal.

    Did you also get that deal from Hetzner? Also, why am I only seeing 39 euro deals at best? Am I not looking often enough or is vat already calculated?

    It's server bidding so someone probably bought the current ones.

  • DrFallenDrFallen Member, Provider

    Yeah I managed to pick up one of the i7s

  • Keep in mind that these cheap ones are in their new finnish datacenter, where the routing leaves a lot to be desired still, especially ping-wise as they're backhauling most, if not all, of their traffic to their german POP right now.

    I like my uptime down low and my servers all hacked. Can see me droppin' twenty-fours with a router in the rack.
    Ya like ya Switch-Ports hot and ya servers all hacked. If ya pings real high and ya networks pitch black.

    Yeah that is correct. It's not seem too bad even though it uses de mirrors which are a lil slow from experience but hopefully it's something they will work on. Any update on routing @Hetzner_OL

    A lot of the traffic does seem to still go through Germany, but not all of it - Scandinavia and the Baltic seem to actually have quite good latencies already. For example, I have 3ms to my new box in Helsinki from Estonia, with people from other nearby countries (with the possible exception of Russia) having similarly good connectivity.

    After the peering with Russia gets fixed, I guess there's not much more to improve in that regard - going through Germany for most other countries would probably be the best way anyway.

    Yeah, that pretty much mirrors my experience. I am seeing direct routes for at least SE, DK, NO, LT, EE. Russia seems to be the exception to the rule for neighbouring countries. Interestingly there is a russion ISP on ficix. Also routes torwards sweden seem to pass coreX.sto.hetzner.com. Do they maybe already have a presence in stockholm?

  • Dirt cheap because of piss poor routing. Arguably still not worth price.

    Collect facts, before you spread shit.

    America seems to be better/direct connected to Australia instead of europe, that may explain the latency.

  • Crandolph said: 330ms to australia from hetzer finland, 210ms to australia from kc nocix.

    Can you compare other EU locations vs Hetzner Finland which is more relevant/fair?

    In general, Finland adds +10-30ms (give or take) to FRA so if you're anywhere around ~100ms to FRA, there's hardly any reason to complain for the price. Plus as others have pointed out routing is pretty decent to other locations (including NL/SE etc.) so it works pretty well for a lot of people.

  • How do you get it for ~EUR21.

    Xeon E3-1246V3 (CPU-B 9910)
    2x 240 GB SSD

    This is for ~EUR31 for me!

    Yeah I've done that a couple of times. Also prices are before VAT for those wondering why they aren't seeing it for 21. Worked out as 27 for me.

  • emghemgh Member

    I think this has to be for VAT purposes, brcause the cheapesy server for me is an Athlon and it’s 37 euros. That’s 16 euro more expensive than the E3 and I7 you’re talking about.

    How does this have any real relevancy to what I said?

    Are you thinking objectively?

    Did I say WHY it was better? No? Therefore this is a strawman argument.

    The point was Hetzner Finland routing is still horrible. Period, doesn't matter what facts against that.

    Eh, if your trying to have a dirt cheap service with piss poor routing, go Hetzner Finland.

    There's just equal if not better alternatives out, specifically with this OVH Game sale right now.

    There are two types of the cheap finland server auctions, one with 2 x 240GB SSD and another with 2 x 2TB HDD.
    The one with SSD is EUR31/month, while the one with HDD is EUR22/month.

    Incredible how people complain for such low prices with high stabdard companies such as Hetzner. Routing can be improved and I am sure its just a matter of time. Lets hope people that complain do not order as I need a server in Finland myself.

  • I saw it 22.99 and when attempted to order changed to 31 :) very funny

    If you have specific technical questions, it is best to ask them via a support ticket if you are already a customer. And if you're not yet a customer, you can ask me here, but it may be a bit before I can answer you, and it would help if you could be more specific.

    Or you can contact our network team via https://www.hetzner.com/support-form if you're not already a customer.
