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

Why would we ever pick the RBX datacenter instead of the Canadian datacenter?

I was gonna ask the same thing. If you want to see how dl speed would be from their european datacenter, simply try a speedtest from www.ovh.net which is in France.

Dunno. But they might pick the Irish datacentre to establish a 'legal' presence in Ireland for their Netherlands Antillies operations.

So what's the consensus of everyone here with OVH?

Yay or Nay?

Worth it? Better value can be found at "X" (insert name here)?

Anyone actually using them? Beefs?

I don't think you'll find a better bang for your buck. I've been using them for several months and no beefs yet.

I think the real test will be the first time something dies like a hard-drive and I have to wait for support to fix it. I've heard stories going both ways -- some say replacement was quick and easy, others have said it was a nightmare procedure.

I take lots of backups and don't host anything mission-critical, so even nightmare support wouldn't be such a big deal in my case so that's why I'm with them. Yay or Nay is entirely dependent on your particular situation though.

TY for the response, Ree.

About routing...

Read further up that some people have a very poor response times to their servers. Was this limited to TSI users? Is it fixed now? Shaw, Telus and Cogeco land have no issues?

Anyone know?
