Looking for a dedi


#1

Hi,

I’m trying to replace my OVH DO-32

https://www.ovh.com/world/dedicated-servers/infra/1808do01.xml

for similar power but at a lower cost (or same)

Need SSD / nVME - 150-200GB

RAM - 32GB+

Bandwidth - unmetered if possible but I can do with 20-25TB

Looking forward to offers.

Thanks

Hetzner auction servers would probably be your best bet. Unmetered bandwidth @1Gbit, one of my servers alone uses 35TB/m. Loads of stuff similar to this:

Hey @Wolveix

I was looking into it too.

This one specifically

If you know, can you tell me which one would be better when it comes to transcoding videos?

Intel Xeon E3-1245v6 (Benchmark 10205)

or

Intel Core i7-4770 (benchmark 9840)

My server has an i7-3770 though I have had the Xeon E3-1245v6 before. I personally haven’t noticed much difference in terms of video encoding or transcoding. Either of your options should suffice :slight_smile: If you need ECC memory (which you probably don’t), then your best bet is probably the i7-4770.

The only reason I would probably recommend the server in my screenshot over your one is due to the additional storage space. But if that’s not needed, then it doesn’t really matter.

Thanks @WolveixI decided to stick with me my DO-32 from OVH for a while mostly because after their bandwidth upgade, too many people have started buying hetzner which has made their setup fee and auction price go way higher than what it used to be.

I had an hetzner auction server few months back for 19 EUR and the same server will now cost me 28 EUR+
