    Can you suggest some alternatives to OVH VPS Cloud (SBG1)?

    It's the second time this year that they work on their storage and I get several ours of downtime.

    Maybe a dedicated could be the solution, but I read many of you using Linode and DigitalOcean.

    How they manage incidents and upgrades?
    They at lease notice you some days/hours before upgrades?

    This forum uses Linode.com since it started in May 24, 2014 so ~30+ months now. Linode has best performance to price ratio especially their $40/month plan as it has 4x cpu threads/cores using E5-2680v3/v2 based processors. That's $10/cpu per month which is my personal sweet spot for performance.

    Linode upgrade and downgrades are seemless. You can also clone servers. I do that for 1:1 identical cloned servers to create staging test servers for my sites.

    OVH public cloud has disk i/o performance issues with the benchmarks I posted at OVH - OVH Public Cloud Servers ? | Centmin Mod Community and @Matt also reported disk issues too.

    Why is it that servers ( even small sized) are not most of the times an option even for pro sys admins?

    well for OVH it's their use of Ceph triple redundancy storage that kills disk i/o heh

    Sorry I did not express my question properly: why is it that web sites sys admins do not make that much use of dedicated servers and instead they rather use VPS's?
    Sidenote: slept 4 hours, walked 8km and had a rough day and so on :/

    Oh you forget some of us are serial LEB VPS hoarders for no reason :geek: and/or use them for various projects/testing/learning etc :D

    FYI, centminmod.com is cluster of 16 (active) + 16 (fallover) geo latency dns based VPS cluster. Doing that with dedicated servers would be expensive :D Not to mention my testing/practice with GlusterFS/Haproxy/Nginx multi clusters + advanced level MySQL/MariaDB MySQL replication topologies :)

    London, Tokyo, Sydney, Melbourne, Seattle, Los Angeles, Dallas, New Jersey, New York, Washington DC, Singapore. Some locations have more than one server.

    Just need South American and Russian regions to complete the lot :)

    Here we go again... it seem down for no reason. I postponed the migration but now I think that Linode (or Aruba Cloud... but is not cheap as Linode) will acquire a new customer.

    Anyone with OVH is getting the same problem? I'm on a SBG1 VPS.
