Where to buy server?

#1 Postby Jaychew » Jun 05, 2012 4:40 pm

Hi,
I just wonder where do you buy server??
I am currently using 100tb server from leaseweb, but they charge crazy price if you exceed 100tb bandwidth.

one of my server used 120TB bw this month, they charged me €2000 for extra 20tb, that's fucking crazy.

ovh doesn't support my country, so I have to find a reseller?

If you can get OVH server, this is the best option. If not then fdcservers.net are also very good and cheap.

which server should I buy for the website and file server for the start?

2x Unmetered 100Mbps ? (OVH)

And how many hard drives (space) should I get for 1 Server... (2tb,4tb,6tb,8tb,10tb) ???

If you want to host only file 100Mbps is enough. If you want a streeming, minimum 1Gbps (RAID 10, SAS 15k)

and how about my second question?
Lets say, I have 2x unmetered 100mbps servers.
1 for file 1 for website.

How many 1 or 2tb hard drives should I use max. per server?

Raid 5 is good, but raid 50 is awsome (very good I/O performance ;)
It requires at least 6 drives. In OVH only HG series have that

ok thank you.
I got one question.

Lets say I get a dedi with 2x2tb raid 5... after 1 month the 2x2tb are full then I upgrade to 6x2tb.. Can I get raid 50 without any complication??

And you have raid 50 hardware or software?
