Dedicated Server Providers

Recommended Posts

Hello guys, we're at the point in time when we have enough funds to upgrade to a dedicated server, I was just wondering if you guys could help me back with your experiences. What providers have you tried and how did they perform? What are the best specs (or needed specs). I'm currently thinking about going with OVH, they are extremely reliably, the monthly price is easily covered just the setup fee is a little hefty. :)

 

Let me know guys, thanks!

OVH have a sister company, they have 2 actully but have a look at https://www.soyoustart.com/en/

You can spread the setup fee over 6 months.

 

Also worth a look are http://oneprovider.com/who are actully a reseller, but a rather large reseller with some very cracking deals and specials.

For one provider this discount code might still be valid OPSWIFT5

I looked up SYS a little, are they unmanaged servers? I don't know much about Dedicated servers my partner will be handling it, but just for questions sake it's best for me to get as much information as possible. Also.

 

With 50 players, what is the likely server load? We're looking to spend around £70 a month, obviously without setup fee costs. So here's a few quick questions.

 

50 Players = How much Ram?

50 Players = How much MB/s?

50 Players = How many Cores used?

& Lastly SSD or SATA? Not sure if SSD will improve Arma's performance.

 

Anything you can tell me will be awesome, and I'm pretty sure this thread will help others too. Don't be afraid to let me know your personal opinion even if you doubt the factual evidence of it, I'd prefer to know from peoples experience more than statistics.

50 Players = How much Ram? 8gb to 16gb would be sufficient

50 Players = How much MB/s?  ?

50 Players = How many Cores used? I believe Arma supports only 2 cores, so a better clock speed would be what you're looking for.

& Lastly SSD or SATA? Not sure if SSD will improve Arma's performance. SSD would be the way to go, constant DB read/writing ... SSD would be the best option.

 

A dedicated for just a 50 man server is a bit overkill, but you do have the flexibility to add another server for whatever game(s) you choose.

Webtropia or Hetzner both located in Germany

Hetzner have a "serverboerse" where you can grab used servers for special low prices http://serverboerse.de/

You can find webtropia here: http://webtropia.com/

I pref. Webtropia, 1Gbit/s, KVM/IPMI included without extra fees (hetzner have them), no setupfees and XEON E5 servers for low prices.

If you chose Webtropia you could rent your server over this link that would give me some euros for a beer or two ;)
