Let me educate.

http://weathermap.ovh.net/

That is their CURRENT load. Hmm. Let us look at the load: 20% tops at the maximum nodes - and that is internal OVH traffic. The external traffic hits no more than 9%.

Furthermore,

"A: We note that more and more customers are demanding in terms of bandwidth. We see daily from customers who change host "best-effort" and rock with us for our network. 14 months our network had a growth of madness! We went from 300Gbps output from our network to over 800Gbps. In only 14 months! And counting! Why? Many EG / MG / HG sold with a lot of bandwidth through the network quality. We exceeded 130,000 servers in our DCs." - 97 gigabits OUT to the internet is absolutely feasible - not including internal OVH traffic. Again, this takes into your absurd example in which all servers are utilizing their MAXIMUM bandwidth 24/7 (which, literally never ever happens in datacenters. do you have much experience in datacenters? from your post it seems very unlikely)

Oh and for the SLA Here is what the ACTUAL SLA is:

This is from there 2013 dedicated server terms and conditions:
OVH guarantees bandwidth up to the rate shown on the OVH site for the concernedrange of server.
The bandwidth is no longer guaranteed when the server or servers are used for the
following activities:
• Anonymization service (proxy), CDN service,
• Storage Platform or file exchange (including but
not limited to: cyberlocker);
• Downloading platform,
• Service bypassing limitations imposed by downloading platforms
(downloaders),
• Platform for watching online videos,
• Server(s) used for downloading and sending files

Basically: you're absolutely guaranteed 100mbits unless you're caught doing massive FILE sharing - this is largely to prevent people from running torrent clients on OVH servers - though they are okay with it, they don't want people to use 100mbit servers solely for seedboxes. Other than that, you're good to go and absolutely guaranteed 100mbit speeds EVEN on Kimsufi's. On top of that, the limitation they place on Kimsufis is you cannot buy more than a few.

Sorry, but I find it hilarious that you came into this thread saying "not to be a jerk, but here is some garbage advice" That is absolutely all you provided. You're 100% wrong - do your research on OVH before coming on here talking about the typical American slow datacenters. Europe is light years ahead of the US in terms of fiber infrastructure and large bandwidth availability. I know you don't want this offer to be true, but it is. And it seems to make you mad for some reason.

No one was arguing that you aren't getting a 100 Mb on their network! In fact, we stated that they have that guarantee...in truth there is nothing stopping them from having Gb or even fiber connectivity between their servers within their data centers. That guarantee doesn't extend beyond their hardware or for a number of services that you listed, which precisely is why it isn't dedicated bandwidth!

Dedicated bandwidth is exactly that! You have X amount of bandwidth that is yours always, for whatever purpose you need it for!

"Odds are high you will get your 100Mb of bandwidth, if you are only doing X things" doesn't translate to dedicated bandwidth!

An example of dedicated bandwidth would be a fiber back-haul service that an ISP uses. A monitored and guaranteed bandwidth that is symmetrical, from their racks out to the major exchanges, regardless of what the usage is.

I hate the state of American data providers as much as the next guy, but hey, how are we supposed to keep the WHOLE place up to speed? We're just one country... us_europe_size_comparison.jpg 75k .jpg file

Have you looked at OVH's BHS datacenter? Check out www.ovh.com (not .ie or .co.uk). Depending on your location in the US this may be what you're after. I'm in the middle of the states and get a reasonable 60ms to my server thumb.gif

They don't have $3 servers there though.
