I know these days you got a lot of cloud providers to choose from, google, apple, buyvm. But what are you guys thinking about euro 7.50 a tb storage? Would this be something to be interested about? connection wise, i was thinking about running nextcloud ontop of it. this would give you webdav to access your data. the data would be mirrored on a second server as a backup. So even if there is a hardware failure all data will be there. might even go a different layout that caches much more, so lots of data that is accessed a lot will be even quicker.
Anyone in for this? And would spent 7.50 a TB or are you guys more like. there is enough already.
no, we have enough
yes! 1 TB pls
yes! 2 TB pls.
yes! 5 TB pls

was not planning on anything like that
also its a brainstorm, see if there is any market also know as market research, something a summer host never does

Personally, not really, since i can get 1 tb for ~€3 at Hetzner, but surely there’s someone that could make use of this.

Their storage box with 1TB is €7-8 / month.
Perhaps price per tb if you get a real storage server/serverbidding. But then you’ll end up paying more than €7/month in total.

OVH ARMs are about $3 per TB. BuyVM should be going beta with their $5 per TB addon to their VMs soon.

you be lucky if you get 3 -4 mbit with those arms, and buyvm you will need a vps for that, + a lot of diy

It seems cheap storage on LET is around $5/TB.
Some offers, just for reference:
Wishosting has a 1.8TB KVM for $8.99
UltraVPS does €5/TB on their 2TB storage VMs
Hetzner does <€5/TB (exc VAT) on the larger storage boxes (2TB and above)
LetBox 20GB NVMe + 1TB block storage for $7
HostHatch does the occasional offer of 1.5TB for $60/yr ($3.33/TB)
and as mentioned above BuyVM is coming with an offer of block storage for $5/TB.
Indeed tough competition.

The ARMs are nowhere near 3-4 mbit if you change the kernel, I have 5 of them. And according to Ponny boy, there won’t be any DIY involved, and even if there is, I don’t care.

It’s just mounting a block storage volume, so mounting a drive. If someone can’t ‘diy’ that, then they don’t belong anywhere near a VPS.
And I agree re: Arm boxes. Have some limitations but can easily do 200Mbps by getting rid of the stock kernel.

1.9Gbps is hardly “3-4 mbit”.

That is pretty decent indeed, So your saying you get 1.9 Gbps from those soyoustart HDD servers?
