Hello,

We have a little lag in the deployment of infrastructure for the new manager v5. We hope to prod tonight, tomorrow afternoon at the latest.

As soon as it is done, beta/gamma test customers may accept the Cloud contract. If you do not do this before Friday midnight, your cloud will be stopped at midnight Friday.

The billing will probably start Monday during the day. At the same time as the commercial site, the offer starts for all.

All the best,
Octave

Hello,

Since January we have performed beta and gamma testing of Cloud Computing at OVH. In all, with a limit of 5 Clouds / customer, we have over 8000 Clouds currently operating. Internally we have strengthened our team to the standard of the interface + and it is now moving forward at a good speed with 2 updates per week. Below we have all the answers to all questions that arose. Service is stable. Cloud starts in 10-25 seconds after the ping command and after 40 seconds max. It also stops in a few seconds. The distributions are stable.

We are still working on the billing and it is being completed. We will use "Points" accounts with billing at the beginning of each hour for the number of points used in your Cloud. Above all, we seek simplicity, a service that is easy to understand: so many points per hour.

We would like to propose three important points: fixed billing without surprises, hourly billing without commitment and immediate changing of resources allocated in the Cloud.

So ...

We will start this week, probably Thursday, with the first offer that we have tested for 3-4 months with the code name mC, which will be offered under the brand Kimsufi, with billing by the hour fixed all-inclusive, root access, the possibility of changing of resources allocated to each mC ... later with the load balancing service of WEB, SMTP, POP3, all firewalled by default and therefore protected against attacks ... We can already speak of the price: €0.01 ex. VAT / hour for basic and progressive mC for every €0.01 ex. VAT / hour.

Then two weeks later will follow 2 dC, ie mysql and nfs / samba. This is Cloud without root access, just the port, where it provides the "managed" service with a fixed charging time and swapping. The MySQL dC is a technology that we have developed it is more than a year on shared hosting (private sql) which is stable, with less than 1,000 customers in production, with an Emotional interface (already) and very rich in functionality ... We can already speak of the price: €0.01 ex. VAT / hour for the dC database and scalable for every €0.01 ex. VAT / hour ... as mC ... and the dC nfs / samba is a service in beta testing for 6 months with a few beta testers, with an interface that we have repeatedly tested with you in alpha (the choice of disks), where we will offer you the nfs / samba service between 1TB and 24TB of disk space secured or unsecured, with or without ssd cache, and billing fixed at whatever the use of the disks and use whatever I/O of your disk space. .. even if you master this service (it uses internally), it will go through a gamma test at the dC to finalise the interface ...

That is the program of the Cloud for 3-4 weeks. Basically, it's off ... J-5 ...

All the best,
Octave
