    nice did you get that 2x2TB SYS server today or had it for a while ? I think @Tracy Perry nabbed one too today.. I was looking at that server on SoYouStart but seems out of stock, so either you or @Tracy Perry took the last ones for the day hehe

    sweet - which SSD configuration ?

    3 x 300GB. Running them in RAID1.

    You get brand new drives as well with OVH, rather than the re-used ones from SYS
    Code:
    ID# ATTRIBUTE_NAME          FLAG     VALUE WORST THRESH TYPE      UPDATED  WHEN_FAILED RAW_VALUE
      5 Reallocated_Sector_Ct   0x0032   100   100   000    Old_age   Always       -       0
    9 Power_On_Hours          0x0032   100   100   000    Old_age   Always       -       3
    12 Power_Cycle_Count       0x0032   100   100   000    Old_age   Always       -       4

    For something important... that would be a good benefit. For a what I got it for - it's kind of overkill to pay 200% more than what I'm paying now. :greedy:
    I actually looked at the Host128... but I had as good of server before and wasn't using it's full potential and the fact it was basically 'wasted" money.

    oh that makes more sense.. :D
    Yeah true.. over or under provisioned servers are part and parcel with bare-bones dedicated offerings from most web hosts unlike cloud providers where you scale up or down for exactly what you need. Then again for dedicated servers, I'd rather be over provisioned than under :)

    I'm not going to complain.. I've had this server about 22 hours.. so looks like the drives in it (2TB SATA enterprise) are new.

    This is /dev/sda
    Code:
      4 Start_Stop_Count        0x0012   100   100   000    Old_age   Always       -       10
      9 Power_On_Hours          0x0012   100   100   000    Old_age   Always       -       22
     12 Power_Cycle_Count       0x0032   100   100   000    Old_age   Always       -       10

    And this is /dev/sdb
    Code:
     
      4 Start_Stop_Count        0x0012   100   100   000    Old_age   Always       -       10
      9 Power_On_Hours          0x0012   100   100   000    Old_age   Always       -       22
     12 Power_Cycle_Count       0x0032   100   100   000    Old_age   Always       -       10

    It will be better if they add more servers to Kimsufi and Soyoustart as there it is sooooo hard to get one as always are out of stock :)

    as you can see from my benchmark review thread linked, it's a solid server although SSD disks are the slower older generation :)

    Cool. I don't have much knowledge when it comes to dedicated servers, I think mine is already set to raid1 without me doing anything.. is this normal? :p

    Or would it be me being wrong.

    Yes if you have 2 disks it is normal to get as default Raid 1 as it is the best and most common option :)
