It's beginning to feel... Ready.
This means a) they're not isolated from one another, making it a bigger ballache when something trips, but b) I can use ethernet over powerlines throughout the house!!
/cancels 20m cat6 order.
So far, there's no Linux client, so backups from my home server aren't possible from that server.
They also limit videos to under 20 minutes, which means my dashcam footage can't be backed up (1:30 commute each way).
The first issue is a bit of a show-stopper. The second would have simply been a nice to have.
In any case, I think I'll be cancelling the trial before they attempt to take any money.
Apparently the initial coolant leak was rectified pretty quickly, the ensuing network reconfiguration left my server isolated from the rest of the internet for the remainder of the downtime.
They gave me a month extension on my subscription for free, which I think is the least they can do tbh.
After that month though, I don't think I'll be renewing.
Apparently they've suffered a power cut.
My initial and immediate question was "I pay extra for the cloud instance on the basis that it can move around the underlying infrastructure in cases such as these, so why didn't you do that?"
Well, they didn't do that because they keep the entire cluster my instance sits on in one room. One room that has suffered a power outage.
I scoffed in disbelief.
In small companies this scenario is more likely, after all they won't have as many datacentres as , but I'm not sure it's acceptable for OVH to suffer problems like this.
They couldn't even confirm if they have UPS' protecting the racks and whether or not the servers suffering a power cut went down cleanly.
My opinion of the company seems to diminish with every month that passes.
