    Arrow 10tb.com DREAM prices

    Have you seen the dedicated server and cloud server prices at 10tb.com? They are offering 50% off.

    Dual Intel Quad Core 'Nehalem'
    Xeon 5520, 8 x 2.26GHz + HT
    2 x 250GB hdd
    12GB DDR3 ram
    1 GigE (1000Mbit) port
    10TB bandwidth

    WAS $359/month
    NOW $179.50/first month

    It's a shame its only for the 1st Month though. I wish these 'dream' prices stayed forever. I wish there was 50% off for unmetered bandwidth too, but it's not. I hoped 10tb.com would have unmetered bandwidth for their cloud servers, but they don't.

    If it was stuck at that price, I'd gobble up two of them That is truely a dream though. Quite a bit of power packed into that. Maybe in a few years these will be cheap.

    If they stayed at that price, I would move all my servers over to 10TB. Don't they use SoftLayer?

    Typical introductory price, they did get you all excited, too bad you now feel bad

    As rule they are price for the first year. If you need to have that forever you will need to communicate with the provider and try to find the best conditions for the both sides

    But they don't have 10 TB of bandwidth included.

    This would be a nice server upgrade for me, if the 50% off price was perm. I would probably switch.

    CPU and 2GB of ram is starting to hold me back on one of my servers.

    Considering a competitive market and all, how do you expect them to keep the price low? How do they make a profit? Are there many hosts who can match those specs?

    The fact that we are talking about this at all is a pure marketing genius, just take notes and learn

    How do you know they CAN'T make a profit with their current prices?

    They do offer extra things too that you purchase seperately like server management etc.

    yup as the cost of bw for 10tb is about $50, so they still have nice profit at this price. they can also earn lots of moeny under small profits but quick turnover statagy

    Check again in one or two years, when this hardware is much cheaper to buy for the host. At this point, that hardware from a quality server vendor cost you anywhere between $3500 to $4000 if that is a dual CPU setup.

    So if that pricing would have been permanent, it would take ~ 23 months to only get the money back from the server, costs on the server (bandwidth, power, colocation, staff, insurance) would push that to ~ 30 months. Cost of capital would push it even beyond that mark.

    Even at its original price its a steal.

    Guys, I won't go into this whole discussion. Just wanted to highlight that these servers are on the Softlayer infrastructure, and even at our usage you would have a hard time getting 10tb for $50...
    10tb is ~50mbit on 95th, so you are putting price at $1/mb?

    Have you seen what bandwidth Softlayer is using: http://www.softlayer.com/facilities_network_n1.html ?

    $1 per mbit?

    Thats not exactly true, it is also not correct to compare this with 95% percentile offers. Usually providers also count inbound traffic into the total usage. 10TB / month is ~ 30 mbit sustained counting both incomming and outgoing traffic.

    yes at fully utilized average usage 10tb is about 30 mbit, but I've never seen that in a real life scenario.

    In any case, we pay more than that to Softlayer, I guess that is what I am trying to say
