OK, it failed again. Sorry, there's no other chance than wait for crappy OVH support to replace the disk. Damn! :'-(

I'm recommending you to go solo or join another pool, because pool will be down until tomorrow.

Edit: hooray, they started responding! Hope it gets better sooner than tomorrow.

OK good to know. I should have told you to avoid OVH from the start but oh well.

Now that was a fun day. 8 Gpu's showing strange symptoms, back-up function failing time and again and sometimes entire black-outs on my machines.

I have some fears about French tech support, those of you who spent some time in France will know that customer service in general is horrible in France. And I tell you that coming from Germany, which hasn't a particularly good reputation for service either. Let's hope for the best.

In any case, Slush, your pool is the best and I will keep returning as long as you get stuff repaired again and again. Even mining at 0% fee at the former Btcguild gave me less than at Slush's I believe. Have been checking my numbers since the end of July. I'd hate to switch to NMCbit now, they have almost 10% fee, ouch!

Best, d.

I wonder what made you choose OVH. Did they give you a really good deal on dedicated servers? Have you ever considered rackspace? I hear they're pretty well regarded in the managed hosting industry.

Rackspace is well regarded, but completely insane on pricing compared to just about any other provider.  OVH (and Hetzner that I used and Deepbit still does) is the opposite: Budget hosting, shitty support.  High quality providers really aren't an option for running pools.

Firstly, I had some good recommendation for them. Then I ask them directly how they handle DDoS and their response was pretty satisfying, they promise that DDoS attack won't be a reason for cancelling our agreement. Last thing is also that price for current server (which is mostly high-end; multi CPU, plenty of RAM, 10Gbit uplink, SSD RAID) was very good. They have officially 1 hour GTI and 2 hours GTR (time to repair issues), however they're totally failing now (which is hard to know in advance, unfortunately).

Btw I has been in touch with Rackspace, I even had servers here and hardware firewalls for fighting DDoS, for really insane money. But then I realized that even their "DDoS solution" is shitty for such large scale attacks which we have in bitcoin world, so I hanged it. And it was good choice, because their monthly price was *many times* higher than pool income at this days.

Btw what's the probability that new server will fail second day in production, when I tested it almost a week? That's insane "luck".

I see. Thanks for the info. I guess as long as the provider has a reliable network then that's all that matters - especially if you're apt at managing the server infrastructure (as many of you pool operators no doubt are).

Might consider Amazon Web Hosting.   Not sure how the pricing compares to your current rates but there is a ton of different setups you can take advantage of including scaling options to automatically scale up when the server gets hit hard.  I'm not much of a server guy myself, but I'm told with the way it's setup and the features it offers, it would be able to handle large scale DDOS attacks.  Might be worth looking into at least.

I just hope that slush's current web host doesn't back down on their promise and closes his account when a big DDoS attack comes - and it will come.

I looked at hetzner's site and I could not believe they're offering servers with 16 GB of RAM for just 49 Euros.

Slush - Can you assure us that no BitCoins or NameCoins were lost in the disk crash?

I can't speak for anyone else here but I know you have to run this pool on a strict budget what with the depressed price of BitCoins these days. I understand some downtime is always a possibility.

I don't think it would be proper server ECC memory at that price, perhaps some 8GB g-skill modules. But I could be wrong who knows Smiley

I worked with EC2 in my previous job, of course I considered it. Unfortunately they handle DDoS in similar way like Linode.

No coins were lost, I'm doing regular backups outside datacenter and I did also manual backup before shutting down the server. However payouts are now stopped, I need to recalculate few rounds manually before I'll start them again, sorry.
