    What dedicated server to choose?

    Hello guys,

    I need to buy a dedicated server but I dont know what to choose.
    Can someone help me please?

    I need to decide between this 3 options:

    OPTION 1
    CPU Intel Xeon E5-1650v2
    Cores/Threads 6 / 12
    Frequency /burst 3.5 GHz+/ 3.9 GHz+
    RAM 128 GB DDR3 ECC
    RAID SOFT/JBOD
    Disks 2x 2 TB SATA3
    Bandwidth 300 Mbps
    Connectivity 1 x 1 Gbps

    OPTION 2
    CPU Intel Xeon 2x E5-2650v2
    Cores/Threads 16 / 32
    Frequency /burst 2.6 GHz+/ 3.4 GHz+
    RAM 128 GB DDR3 ECC
    RAID SOFT/JBOD
    Disks 2x 2 TB SATA3
    Bandwidth 400 Mbps
    Connectivity 1 x 1 Gbps

    OPTION 3
    CPU AMD 2x Opteron 4386
    Cores/Threads 16 / 16
    Frequency /burst 3.1 GHz+/ 3.8 GHz+
    RAM 128 GB DDR3 ECC
    RAID SOFT/JBOD
    Disks 2x 2 TB SATA3
    Bandwidth 400 Mbps
    Connectivity 1 x 1 Gbps

    Whats the best server? :-)
    And btw, what hosting company do you guys suggest for multiple adult websites? (all legal)

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    What Will be the nature of these websites? i mean videos? or perhaps live streaming?

    Among these "Option 2" looks better, but again it will depends what you will be hosting on these machines.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your reply.
    Not videos neither streaming...
    Just forums and blogs.

    Option 2 seems good for me too.
    The worst part is that this servers belongs to OVH and I don't like their support.

    Any hosting company suggestions?
    Same specs with good prices...

    Thanks!

    You could take a look at this Offer Thread.

    http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showth...ght=SERVERAXIS

    The configuration for $299 is on par with Option 2. but has 8x 1TB HDD's SW Raid-10 it would offer more IO Performance

    Also you Mentioned you don't like OVH due to their Support. you don't really need Support with OVH Apart from the Hardware / Network side but I have never had to contact them regarding any Hardware or Network Problems. But it all depends if you are Seeking a Managed Provider or not?

    Option 2 seems the best. It very much depends on what you're using the server for though.

    Because they are unmanaged. They will only provide you the hardware and network and such.

    Any problem with software, partition, etc... you will be the one to deal with it.

    Do you have any budget set for this server?

    Most self-managed providers only provide network and hardware related support, the rest of the technical works should be done by yourself.

    I believe leaseweb are alright with adult websites as some of the big names are hosted with them but just as long as they are legal.
    Fiberblade Networks
    [UK] Overclocked game servers hosted on a high capacity DDoS protected network.

    Thank you for your replies! :-)

    I received a proposal from leaseweb:

    HP DL380pG8 (12xLFF)
    2x Intel Octa-Core Xeon E5-2650
    128GB DDR3
    4x1TB SATA2
    100 TB Datatraffic included (uplink 1GE)

    What do you guys think?
    I think that the processor is not better than OVH right (option 2)?
    And they only have SATA2 instead of SATA3
    About the hard disks they also offer SSD (4x240GB SSD)
    All of my websites have 100GB, so I think that is a good solution instead of SATA2 right?
    Can I have SSD running in RAID 10 too?

    About OVH, I am client for about 18 months and so far, two hard disks has failed... they replaced to a new one but I had to pay 80€ (ex taxes) for them rebuilt the Raid Soft.
    I am not happy with them, that's why I'm checking more hosting companies.

    Thanks!

    They're all good Dedis and would all suit fine. You might want to go with SSD for your requirements as it's generally more reliable than HDD, as well as being much faster.

    It depends on pricing though and what your budget is really.

    Thank you for your reply buddy.

    They replied to my message and they said:

    Indeed we offer the 2x E5-2650 (first edition), so it is no better.
    However, we don't charge a setupfee, we still deploy servers and we
    deliver the server including hardware RAID.

    It is possible to run with 4x 240GB SSD's in RAID 10. This will give
    some extra performance compared with RAID 1, but the RAID controller
    will be the bottleneck. You can also decide to order the server with
    4x300GB SAS drives in RAID 10.
    If was you, what should you choose? SSD or SAS? 60€ between them.

    Also, my current processor in the OVH server is this one:
    http://ark.intel.com/products/52207/...up-to-3_40-GHz

    This is better right?

    Hello,

    I guress you can do with 4x120gb SSDs just make sure you tell them to install ssd that work well with the P420 hw raid controler which those HPs use. As far as I recal Kingston SSDs show lots of errors.

    4x240gb ssd whill cost an arm and a leg so 4x120 should be ok for you. You can also add one sata drive for backups.
