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.

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.

2hr gtr sounds good
but
Its over 6rs of problems now

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.

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.

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.

I had nice time with OVH technical support, it was really pleasure to work with them. The best part is that it was NOT a hardware issue, but a bug in VMWare which *looked* like hardware issue, which has been fixed by tuning kernel options. This also explain why RAID "didn't work". Really painful 17 hours of waiting to their response! However it's fixed on 90% now.

Quote from: slush
they forget to setup RAID during server installation

Well, to be honest, they did setup RAID on the server, but it isn't visible on software layer (and even in their disk recovery tool in rescue mode), so I decided that RAID is missing by mistake.

bulanula: Payouts are not enabled yet, they'll be back in few hours. I need to check last rounds if their rewards were not affected by outages and recalculate possible issues. Thanks for patience.

Sure, take your time. I just want to widthraw all my total ( unconfirmed + confirmed too ) NMC and BTC funds I did so far before I start my rigs again so as to pay electricity this month etc.

Thank you !

Yeah, my miners reconnected briefly then got stuck on "server error" and then temporarily down for maintinence then switched to backup. Ohh well, guess there are still some more kinks to workout...
