Re: OVH pricing at Montreal datacenter is... insane?

The i3-2130 that you have is a 3.4 GHz dual core chip that supports VT-x, it's designed for virtualization.

The 119 euro plan that DSL_Ricer got his dad, that's a 1.8 GHz Atom D425. Single core, no VT-x support (or any other virtualization extensions), and the Atom is pretty damned slow clock-for-clock. It's great for light web serving and VPN use, but it's really not a good chip for virtualization.

EDIT: Also, vSphere's minimum requirements suggest a single-chip-dual-core or dual-chip-single-core server, which the Atom isn't.

Ah euro plan. Yeah the Atom chip isn't great for servers. He should move to a Canadian server (presuming he's in Canada). I mean good price for a year but not great specs.

The 119 euro offer is for a server located in (or rather, just outside of) Montreal...

still no resolution on the OVH to TSI path, so f*ing useless after 5pm until 2am.
