Dude, anyone use ovhcloud usa location?

  1. Is there a reason you wanna use OVH Cloud instead of just OVH? I’ve never heard of the OVHCloud, then again, I don’t use OVH to begin with.
  2. First time hearing about OVHcloud... I mean, I use OVH myself but I have never heard of that. Anyone got info on what exactly OVHcloud is compared to regular OVH? I can't even find any reference to OVHcloud on the official OVH website...
  3. OVHCloud is the US division of OVH.com
    Odd name choice (ovh.us redirects to ovhcloud.com)

    They're the same servers as OVH.com, the GAME servers are excellent and probably overkill for Minecraft but more expensive due to the new US datacenter locations.

    No point in using OVH US branch for Minecraft, BHS (Canada) has similar servers at 50% the price and it's only a 20-40ms difference for most of the U.S. Not to mention IP costs are $10 instead of $3, so expect to pay more if you want dedicated IPs.

    OVH US is also not willing to work with people, it seems that they want to focus on cloud and enterprise customers.

    Edit 12/15/2018: To clarify for anyone who sees this in the future, IP prices I think have been lowered from $10 to $3. So it's more reasonable (it's one-time fee anyways, so great). But unless you have latency sensitive apps, which Minecraft really isn't, you're better off saving $30 and using the Montreal servers on the international site.

  5. I did consider using ovhcloud and I had a talk with them, main difference is that they "protect" user information, meaning your name and personal data is not shared at all.
    Also, they seem to have better support than standard OVH, the rest is just the same.
  6. Excellent hosting, all the same as on OVH, just cheaper due to the fact that they use a special retail system. All the same AntiDdos and all the same cool and cool hosting ovhcloud is cool

    Even the panel is the same

  7. Searched this on google, only thing about virtual private servers is a article saying that they are scammers

  8. My ping from NJ to BHS increased by 50% recently. Looking at the routing, the outbound packets go Newark - Montreal, while the return packets go Montreal - Chicago - Newark. I DM'ed OVH on Twitter asking why, but haven't gotten a response. Maybe I should have my Minecraft host submit a ticket with OVH.

    You should, a 50% increase in latency is not normal.
