    be careful of the updated geo location pages for USA (world US$) vs Canada (ca - canadian dollars)

    But to be fair it's only 13USD more than a 8core 24Gb VPS from linode ;) Which makes me insane for sticking with them :D More so given it's possibly ;) $25 less. Good deals...

    Only consideration for me in comparison is network throughput and resilience of the storage layer - both of which Linode will win over OVH.

    Agree. Currently engaged in a debate with a 'professional' about server location. He swears his west coast usa shared hosting for 20usd is better than a uk based server, for almost all user base of UK. Nixstats puts a uk droplet about 4 seconds ahead in total time ;) #fakenews

    I can just about squeeze 3 ovh's into the linode budget, but vastly more complex. I'm actually toying with an RDS instance, that would to some degree open up ovh and others. Still need to get all uploads/assets out to S3 though and the IPB S3 isn't as tip top as it should be and my patch was rejected.

    For applies to applies compare for network at least OVH

    upgrade bandwidth Increase your guaranteed bandwidth - OVH

    Linode 24GB plan is 2Gbps out

    upload_2018-2-23_3-6-9.png

    so OVH if they offered bandwidth upgrade for SP-128 would be $185.99 + $203 = US$388.99 per month

    Of course if you had to match disk space, linode 64G and 80G plans would have 12 cores and 16 cores and 6Gbps and 8Gbps out but cost US$480-640/month while OVH would be stuck 12 cpu threads at 3Gbps for 301/month more + 185 = US$486/month

    So essentially Linode 64G would be better at 12 cores and 6Gbps out at US$480 vs OVH + upgraded 3Gbps at US$486

    Granted Linode 64G would only have 1152GB disk and slower cpus while above OVH with 9x960GB SSD raid 5 would have 1920GB disk.

    I've taken some of the network rates as one of those metrics that sounds good, however really for me, it isn't a concern.

    I only have nixtstats on monitoring now. My mean, I would guesstimate to be 60/70Mbps and the highest peak was 349 this am bizarrely, before mostly 180ish. So anything above 250 in my mind, is just a number. Food for thought!

    Yeah depends on your specific usage. After playing with Vultr baremetal E3-1270v6 with 10Gbps network, your eyes are opened to how limiting 250Mbps would be for some usage scenarios. But if you don't require more than 250Mbps than you would be fine. Then again pretty at least 75% of folks don't even require an E3-1270v6 4C/8T based server - that's alot of power and can definitely handle alot of load! Probably could save some $$$ and go for E3-1240v5/E3-1245v5 older gen if it was cheaper than E3-1240v6/E3-1245v6.

    With Vultr baremetal E3-1270v6 with 10Gbps network, I managed to configure Centmin Mod 123.09beta01 based Nginx stack to push and handle 350,000 concurrent active Nginx connections but soon realised it was limited even by 10Gbps so response times and performance were lower. I maxed out at 9.9Gbps transfers with just 5,000 concurrent active Nginx connections non-gzip compressed or around 10,000-30,000 concurrent active Nginx connections gzip compressed. You are not going be able to handle that on a 250Mbps cap !
