Hello, I already talked to a provider who offering this however I am still on the fence about these deployments in general.
Firstly how dependable ARE blade servers over “normal” 1u/2u servers? These guys DO offer redundant PSUs from redundant feeds. Which by the “cover” seems to put the “standard” server in the waste side. However I heard that micro clouds and single backplane based “redundant” PSU act so quirky? (CPUs being under clocked while a PSU being replaced on the microclouds and single back plane servers being more faulty than a “standard” server even though the PSU themselves being redundant). I am concerned that blades can “carries” the similar issues?
Then these guys seems to be issue IPv4s individually instead of say giving you a /30 or a /29 to yourself. I inquired about “noises” of “sharing” a subnet and they said that because they use mac filtering that those “noises” won’t exists. I am concerned about this since ReliableSite.Net pulled this off as well and WHT complaints started to crop up about their “new” network for the exact reasons that they are getting resource waste having to deal with everyone elses IPv4s’ “noises”.
Are these things to be concerned about renting? Or should I be “fine” to rent one of these relative to standard offerings?
