Hello,

Deliveries of EG SSD have started. You are very numerous in ordering this offer and we do not hide that we will not manage to keep delivery times short. There is really a boom at EG SSD and we're pleasantly surprised, but totally helpless to meet the volume of your orders. We made the most of the Intel and Supermicro for parts but ... has not provided enough servers, even in our wildest dreams. Well, in all cases it is the maximum and you'll say all right the harm you think of OVH about deliveries EG SSD ... and we not even talking about the SP SSD happens very shortly and which we feel already, will be the future boooombbaaaa (if there are parts ...). In short, it will grumble among OVH for a few weeks ...

All the best
Octave


And what is the EG SSD ? It is ... bombaaa

Intel Xeon W3520 (i7 aka Nehalem) with 8x2.67GHz with Hyper-Threading with 12GB of DDR3 RAM (3x4GB RAM, 3 buses, everything is calculated by 3 on the i7) as a hard drive with Intel SSD X25-M 2x 80GB in raid 1 soft default (raid-0 optional LSI RAID card option, etc. etc. etc. ...) with the switchport 1Gbps (KVM firewall option) with 4 IP (more optional)

for €99.99 ex. VAT/month (€49.99 installation charge)

The performance of Intel's SSD with respect to the SATA2 1.5T/750GB:
# Hdparm-tT / dev/sda1
/ dev/sda1:
Timing cached reads: 33000 MB in 1.99 seconds = 16596.21 MB / sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 622 MB in 3.01 seconds = 206.99 MB / sec

and 1.5TB SATA disks that OVH proposes for EG High
# Hdparm-Tt / dev/sda1
/ dev/sda1:
Timing cached reads: 13494 MB in 1.99 seconds = 6784.06 MB / sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 378 MB in 3.01 seconds = 125.69 MB / sec

and disks 750GB SATA2 that OVH proposes for EG BestOf
# Hdparm-Tt / dev/sda1
/ dev/sda1:
Timing Cached reads: 12448 MB in 1.99 seconds = 6256.86 MB / sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 248 MB in 3.01 seconds = 82.39 MB / sec

If not just for visual pleasure
