I've been searching for a good deal on a New York dedicated server to replace my VPS in New York for my VPN network. I came across this deal from ServerMania and ordered a server. Setup time was fairly quick and the servers are pretty fast to the UK & Canada & across the US. Hopefully this helps any other RFDers that are looking for servers.

Judging strictly by specs rather than network upstreams, OVH's SYS line can't really be beat:
http://www.soyoustart.com/ca/en/essential-servers/
Depending on what you need it for, same amount of money gets you a crappier CPU, double the RAM, 4x the HDD or 3x the SSD), a lot X the bandwidth, and double the IPs.

$6 more buys you a better CPU and all the above.

Network quality however... it's acceptable. That's about it.

I think OP needs a US-based server for VPN.

Amazed how OP needs dedis for VPN though, unless he is running a business on VPN, if it is for personal use a dedi is definitely an overkill.

OVH supplies both Canadian and US IPs.

It's for a VPN / Proxy business, otherwise a dedicated would be extreme overkill :D

I wasn't aware of that, I'll have to look at that up. Edit: I think that is only for their VPS and they ran out of US ip's for their dedi servers.

These are nice deals. Do they have test IPs for latency?

I pay $50 USD/month for an Amazon VPS for remote desktop because the latency/stability is good, but EC2 has crashed on me twice now and these things have 3 times the RAM, my only concern is uptime as I can't let it crash.

Are these guys very stable with the network/power?

Yeah I have a bunch of US IPs for VPN and other purposes.
I have a block of Canadian IPs for VPN as well.

I didn't know they ran out of US IPs though. That's mildly entertaining and at the same time terrifying.

EDIT: I can't confirm nor deny as I can't see the country without actually ordering more IPs.
I don't want to throw $24 at the problem just to win/lose an internet argument.

Is this for VPS or Dedicated Server? I know you can order single US ip addrses on their VPS but on the dedicated servers I was unable to order any US ip addresses.

For DDOS protection, CloudFlare's free level of service is amazing.

OVH SYS is always OOS...

I'm with Dacentec. Opteron 1381/8GB/2x2TB for 20$US + 2,50$ for a /29 netblock. Very happy of them!

Think that's bad? You should try Kimsufi....

But the rare times you can actually get into SYS or K it's well worth it.
I worked it out once where over a 3 year period OVH makes like $20 per server.
I don't know how they do it.

What's the network bandwidth and cost of bandwith (i.e.: free traffic allowed per month) per server? I saw some offer free 20Tb/month but the server only has 100Mbps bandwidth (if you are serving 10 users each only has 10Mbps) - 89USD/month. Also it's unclear if traffic is counted both ways (cloud providers usually only charge outgoing traffic, but some places charges both ways; heck, even teksavvy only count one way traffic: download).

Oh really? Why this's bad? It's not a high end server but this stable and enough for my needs.

Kimsufi is a little better for RAM/CPU but they are all single-disk (no raid) with smaller drives. And their "support" 8/5 on their public forum is complete non-sense. Dacentec reply quickly 24/7 to their tickets in my personal control panel. Kimsufi just sucks.
