    I wish it wasn't only 1:1 I have 2 of them. I might have to start annoying them into giving me credit for both servers... that worked last time.

    OVH has a really good connection to Amazon S3:

    wow never seem Amazon S3 that fast probably because OVH BHS is stones throw away from Amazon S3 Virginia datacenters which has great connectivity. Most of my Amazon S3 are US West located heh.

    also probably because i use s3cmd instead of aws official command line binary. s3cmd breaks the large files into separate parts for transfer

    I used to use s3cmd as well but haven't since the move to the new servers. Centos 7 makes it a lot easier to use awscli due to python version.

    I haven't gotten less than 100 MB/s so far since moving to OVH.

    Not dedicated server related per se, but found this interesting about OVH.

    And you think the link with AWS is fast now... wait until Virginia is up and running. ;)

    The way their going, it's probably in the planning phase. Virginia first because it's a hub for some of the largest areas and businesses in the US - DC, Philly, NYC.... plus the US GOV. I wouldn't doubt that that they're going to start going after some US GOV contracts.

    Just an FYI

    Enterprise SP-128 with the Intel Xeon E5-1650v3 - 6c/12t - 3.5 GHz/3.8 GHz is actually an Intel Xeon E5-1650v4

    Edit:
    Well it appears that I have v3 when looking at the control panel, but the test pdf I received says v4. Won't know for sure until I install the OS. :ROFLMAO:

    It's called the "server_certificate". Thought I got a free cert with the server! :LOL: Until I opened it. I guess it's the French translation of certification.

    Anyway, can't wait to fire it up and test it out. 1.2TB of NVMe. :cigar:
