Reccomendations for Dedicated Server hosting 8tb HDD minimum

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Super weird request but here we go

 

I'm based out of the UK and we use OVH for most of our dedicated server hosting, we are passing 100 servers with them pretty soon and we are using one of there backup servers that has about 72TB HDD for around $200 USD

 

We are looking to get a bunch of smaller backup servers around 20tb each, through OVH, however we are looking for some "provider redundancy" in-case we fuck something up super bad with OVH, so we are wanting to get around 4-5 8TB Dedicated servers from a reliable provider.

 

We currently max out the gigabit connection on our 72TB Node and we will need that sort of uplink on the 8TB Nodes

 

Does anyone have any reconsiderations for Server Hosts, we have found one 8tb server with around 16gb of RAM for around $50, If anyone can find cheaper or knows of any great reliable hosts please can you let me know.

If you just need backup, why not go with cloud as your backup solution? 

AWS, GCP, Azure (that's more popular in Europe from what I hear) should all (of course) have plenty of capacity, and can give you just data backup, machine image backups, or you can have full-on redundant applications running if you need that.

I don't have a problem...

We can't go with a cloud solution mainly due to the shear volume of data that we are backing up. Also, with the fees they charge for downloading it makes it un-realistic

 

Most cloud providers charge around $0.01/Gb and we are needing to store multiple terrabytes of data.

 

We have considered using GlusterFS and are still looking into it but for now we need a provider that does a semi-decent around 8tb dedicated server

Location of the server currently doesn't matter as we have more Servers in NA (Montreal, Canada) then do in EU, so location doesn't matter

backblaze B2 cloud maybe an option. https://www.backblaze.com/b2/cloud-storage.html

100 servers in OVH and costs are a concern? ouch... i think you might need to review your infrastructure costs.

 

as for cloud backup it will be the cheapest non-OVH but managed solution  you will find. if you want to use cloud services then you don't want to do it with IaaS you'll want native stuff (which you've ruled out) and if you wanted a hosted service then just use OVH... it makes more sense.

 

thing with IT is that stuff costs money... you want provider redundancy? sure... ...$$$
