Spoiling Hetzner - A very small review


#161

Very cool!


#162

Nice. All providers should have a page like this :grin:


#163

That is a great entertaining feature.


#164

Hivelocity does


#165

When am I going to be able to visit a single subdomain to manage all of my services? :stuck_out_tongue:


#166

It’s Hump Day! And to celebrate*, we’ve added Ubuntu 18.04 to Hetzner Cloud so that you can now get it deployed on your instances within just a few seconds.

*I know bionic beavers don’t have humps per se, but beavers build mounds, and those are kind of humpy, right…? --Katie, Marketing

Our Hetzner Cloud team made a new server overview page that went live yesterday:

What do y’all think? I’ll make sure to pass any feedback you give me to the team. --Katie, Marketing

You guys are too good, this is by far the best control panel I’ve ever used, it’s really built for the user. Missing it on all my other locations… The only thing I’m not sure about is in the setup panel:

I feel like that was meant to be CentOS and not Centos. But I might be wrong.


#169

I think you are probably right. It seems to be how CentOS writes it themselves: https://www.centos.org/, so I will make sure to pass on your comment to our team. Thanks for the feedback! :slight_smile: --Katie

Sorry that it’s been awhile since I’ve last checked in with you Ballers. There’s a few things I should announce:

  1. For a short time, there will be 1/2 setup price for our PX61-NVMe: https://www.hetzner.com/dedicated-rootserver/matrix-px
  2. Our AX160-NVMe and AX160-SSD are now also available in Finland: https://www.hetzner.com/dedicated-rootserver/matrix-ax
  3. The Hetzner Cloud API documentation (https://docs.hetzner.cloud ) has a new design. You can now also receive JSON Schemata for all requests and replies: Just hit the “Schema” tab on the right to display it.

There’s a new feature for HetznerOnline Robot users. Activate “SSH Support” to use rsync via SSH to synchronize your dedicated root server directories to either a storage box or backup space. In addition you can now also use BorgBackup with our storage box sub-accounts.

For more info, see:

Holy macaroni…
You’re re making my love affair with Scaleway harder and harder to carry on.


#173

Any possibility for something like Minio on these for object storage?


#174

@SonOfAMotherlessGoat I can’t give you details of upcoming features and tools or some kind of roadmap. I can tell you that our team is already at work on several features/tools and that I will announce them here as they go live. --Katie, Marketing


#175

By the way, I’ve got two more pieces of good news:

  1. A new Hetzner Cloud provider is now available for HashiCorp Terraform. You can use it to interact with cloud resources supported by Hetzner Cloud. https://www.terraform.io/docs/providers/hcloud/index.html

  1. We also have a new generation of Dell servers: https://www.hetzner.com/dedicated-rootserver/matrix-dell

The basic configuration doesn’t include any drives. This gives you more freedom in configuring your server. You can also add more RAM to fit your requirements.

Hetzner, kicking ass and taking names


#177

I can’t believe that no one has beaten me to the punch today. Our no setup sale for this year started earlier today!

Wow! The star of the show in my opinion is the i7-6700 / 64GB DDR4 / 2 x 2TB for €34/mo and no setup in Finland. How the heck do you beat that kind of deal? Might let a couple of my other boxes expire in favor of this one! Decisions… decisions…

@Hetzner_OL - I remember you saying in the past that we could request i7-7700 CPUs in these boxes if they were available. Do you know if there are any i7-7700 servers in the Finland DC or are they all i7-6700s?


#179

Anyone know if there’s any huge advantages of a Hetzner dedi from one of their main lineups (e.g. the EX line) over the server auction dedis?

The only difference I really noticed was that the lineup dedis have 30TB b/w vs. the auction dedi’s 20TB b/w. And obviously, the auction dedis will have more outdated hardware (older CPUs, DDR3 RAM, aged disks, etc.).

Related: Do the auction servers come with DDoS protection as well?


#180

As mentioned, they have newer hardware and have usually seen less use.

I believe so :slight_smile:
