So what do you think of this box? Its about the top of what I can get away with paying. I’m married, kids, etc. My wife would throw a fit if my ‘hobbies’ cost more than this so providers like OVH are out of the question.
I would raid 0 the SSDs. I can eat the upfront setup fees. It would be a long term box for me so the setup fee wouldn’t be a big deal when we’re talking spreading it over a year or more.
The issue with the box as I see it is the 500mb/s ‘guaranteed’ bandwidth which means I can burst to 1gbit(and I’m sure the raid 0 ssds can do that) but I would need to probably throttle it to the 500mb/s in order to keep online.net happy. It’s dumb how they word that guarantee. You’d think you’d be guaranteed ‘at least’ 500 mb/s not ‘the max you can use’ is 500 mb/s.
I have amazon cloud drive unlimited and google drive unlimited so I was thinking of utilizing those for plex storage on it.
It’s in DC2.
My other option is https://www.soyoustart.com/us/offers/e3-sat-1.xml
More space, weaker CPU and lower bandwidth(250mb/s up). It’s out of stock but I can be patient…not in a rush.
Thanks for your opinions.
