As you might already know, OVH (wikipedia) is the main hosting provider, with their own Datacenter, that most seedbox companies are reselling from. Their plans (currently are all sold out) are at a great price and the speeds you can reach within Europe are amazing (we’ve got a ton of seedboxes over here :)).
You might also remember that they had tons of problems a few months back (April to be exact) where they mass limited a ton of seedbox owners and providers and brought a little bit of chaos out there. That lasted long enough (They removed all the bandwidth limitations on July) to make a few seedbox companies close down and others to lose a huge percentage of their clients. Well to be honest, you should always have an alternative plan in case something like that happens (yeah I know it is easy to say stuff like that -.-“).
Now back on topic. I’ve read today that OVH sent out some emails (invitations to be exact), regarding their new plans, where they are asking the customers to fill out a survey and let them choose the servers they would be interested in. Here is a copy of these choices. (Thank you mrp for letting me use your images and content :))
If you noticed, the mSP will get a huge hardware downgrade without any price decrease. (*)
“The mSP was 40E/month for 32GB / 4TB. The same 40E/month is coming in with 16GB / 2TB, so effectively a large price increase.”
Keep in mind that only the top 3-6 voted choices from each category will be available and the number of them will be limited to around 50/plan with a starting date sometime in November.
Update: We’ve also heard that new Kimsufis will only be sold to students. We will look into this soon.
Update 2: Here is the direct link to the survey image in case you doubt us
Update 3: (*)
The “old” mSP was a 4-cores while the new one is 8-cores. Thank you Rantanplan
That’s all from me for now.
I will keep you posted!
