Would you have any interest in the following:

Atom D2550

4gb DDR3

Your choice of 1000gb on gigabit with minimum 90% of gigabit speed guaranteed OR unmetered gigabit shared with 30 other clients

Your choice of 3 TB 7200rpm SATA HD OR 256gb SSD

Los Angeles datacenter

/29 of IPv4

some allotment of IPv6 (not sure what size yet)

Support via ticket only, 20 minute response time during American daytime, 1 1/2 hour response during American nighttime.

No IPMI

$20 / month

Addons:

Additional hard drive: $10 per month OR $150 one-time (no hardware RAID would be available)

Additional IPv4: $5 per /29

IP KVM access: $5 per month, or $20 per request

Depending on the DC, yeah... That's a great deal! Got a test IP?

Could use it as a backup backup server, move some non-vital VPSes there, etc.

Not yet... I was having me a think and ran some numbers but haven't done anything concrete yet.

Very very nice!

Can you do 4x 3TB disks? ;)

Unfortunately, no. It would be a maximum of 2x 3.5" drives. Could potentially do 4x 2.5" drives, but those aren't cheap in large sizes.

 

Darn 3TB disk... That is such a deal.

How about reinstalls?
One free reinstall per month, then $5 each afterwards. 

Re-visiting things, we'll probably end up offering IPMI, and then you can do it yourself. But no guarantee on that yet.

 Can you provide more information?
Well I just don't see how you can make a profit on these, even assuming you are buying all the hardware used. The 3euro/mo kimsufi made sense because OVH had a ton of extra capacity for power & bandwidth and all the hardware was just junk they'd collected over the past 5-6 years that they were trying squeeze the life out of Wholesaleinternet-style

For $20/month of course people will want it :) But the 256GB SSD for the Atom is a complete waste, the CPU is not powerful enough to make use of such fast SSD speeds.

I'm pretty sure every computer will see some benefit from the lower seek times alone, but the other reason people like SSDs in server is, assuming you get a decent (e.g. no OCZ) brand, it's going to live far longer than most mechanical drives while not generating as much heat in those 1u cases

I'd definitely be in for one with the 3TB drive, I'd prefer more than 1TB on GBit (maybe 3-5?) but if that's not possible, shared would work too. 

When I say definitely, I mean point me @ the order form and I'll buy one right now.

@texteditor i know why SSDs are better than HDDs, but imagine the influx of angry tickets "Why am i not getting 500MB/s on my SSD!!! SCAM!!!".

I like the idea a lot, but I hate the idea of the port being shared among 30 people, because you know some idiot will run a Tor relay or something and soak up all the bandwidth


I'd rather share a 100mb port by 3-5 people

Ha, I'm assuming you've gotten some of those recently.

Really, if someone produced a cheap 2TB SSD that only did 40MB/s I'd be jumping all over them just to have dense reliable storage

Solid deal. I'd take the 3TB one with the 1TB @ Gigabit. Though it'd be nice if we could have a little bit more bandwidth.

Haha, looks like a lot of people are really all over this deal. I for one am really excited to try it out since it has awesome specs for the price, but more importantly, finally a good dedi deal in LA, since I'm in Asia.
