EU - LF Dedicated Server Provider with IPMI servers (SMC preferred)
I am looking for an unmanaged provider of dedicated servers with IPMI access which is based anywhere in the EU. These will be used for databases/computations rather than file hosting, hence the need for SSD based storage and less demand for bandwidth)
Quad core Xeon processor 3Ghz+ per core.
8+ Gigs ECC ram (please list 8/16/32 prices)
120G SSD based storage per drive (please list price of having 1/2 drives per server)
Please provide additional information where possible on
* Availability of setting up private networking and structure.
* Discounts for quarterly/semi-annual payments or paying additional setup fees.
* Availability of BBU on the SSDs (aw well as make of the SSDs)
* additional cost of Hardware Raid 1 (only 2 raid ports needed)
* networking charges (e.g. port size and bandwidth usage limits)
* availability of redundant power.
* latency to AWS (Ireland).
If you can match this american provider (order filled in) like for like, although expecting to be more expensive/limited on the bandwidth due to being in the EU and the fact that this is actually a 'promo'.
If you like to have some latency tests to Ireland I suggest you contact a provider with a test IP or eventually speedtest file, so they can check it.
Do you have a preference of where in Europe ith as to be located?
Since you mention Ireland, I assume you need good latency to there?
@24x7group I only mentioned Ireland because that is where AWS EU is located. I should have mentioned earlier that I would prefer low latency to AWS EU but it is not a dealbreaker.
@ChrisRapidswitch I am not averse to hosting in the UK. I am currently checking out webfusion which is UK based. If they have IPMI access and I can swap out the drives for SSDs then that would be good.
The SSD brand & RAID card are quite specific but if you can be flexible on those, looking around it should be quite possible to achieve it at similar pricing (even without setup fees!) - just check the offers section and contact a few known providers and you should be able to achieve it
