    I think a video reply is appropriate.

    You'd have to pay for 3 months though, no 1 month option.

    I know, right? I'm curious, though: how does one of these compare to a KVM with, say, one or two E3 cores and 2GB RAM?

    I would say they're only useful for the disk space and non cpu intensive tasks.

    Man I don't get how that's possible, the ROI would be insanely long, hardware failures would wipe any hopes for a return.


    The connection must be shared 20 per ded 100Mbit, otherwise the cost of connectivity alone would be quite a bit.


    3 Euro a month, about $110 of hardware... 36.7 months... and then there's bandwidth and power.


    I'm surprised they didn't go ARM, then you could get cost down to $80, and lower power usage.

    I kind of wish they had Kimsufi's in their North American datacenter. I'd jump on this deal if they did.

    From what I have seen only their more expensive dedicated servers are available there.

    These are the boxes that've been ten euros a month previously. I've had one for ages, and it's been running very nicely for managing backups, doing a little torrenting and usenet-ing, grabbing stuff from Hulu (via a proxy of course) and all sorts of other stuff.

    For 3 euros, it seems like a total no-brainer. Awesome for Owncloud etc.

    Yup, the equivalent Kimsufi type range in in North America is more expensive which is odd, with all the space over there you would have thought they would put some cheap deals in there, bigger market, more demand and all that.

    If OwnCloud didn't suck, that is.

    If i recall correctly they used to offer similar spec'd boxes as beta-boxes initially, then discontinued them. Not sure if they are ever going to come back, but they had a similar set of boxes before.

    Oh, I remember hearing about those. Maybe at one point they'll bring them back.

    Not quite, you are not allowed any extra IP's on the Kimsufi servers and they have limited uses with one drive.  So the LEB market is not about to crumble or drop prices.

    A lot of LEB buyers don't care sadly. They just want more disk, ram and cpu. They compare you to specs ignoring a lot of things. Hence the super overselling trend and now this :(
