Dedicated, low power servers running with Alpine Linux 3.15
We are proudly using the PC Engines APU in a lot of places at Data Center Light. They are small, robust and easy to handle. And furthermore: they consume only about 10W of power.
While there are other systems that are more power efficient, these boxes are very suitable to be running as a tiny cluster. Webserver? No problem. Mail server? No problem.
So let's have a look at the specifications:
The offer is valid for all orders received between 2021-12-06 to 2021-12-24. The monthly price is 100 CHF instead 150 CHF. The price stays the same until the end of the contract.
The fine print:
On order, you get access to the server with Alpine Linux 3.15 installed. You will need to provide your public SSH key for accessing the device.
The server includes 15TB traffic per month. Additional 30TB traffic can be added for 75 CHF/month. The server is located in an IPv6 only network. It can reach the IPv4 Internet via outgoing NAT64. If you need incoming IPv4 connectivity, we offer dedicated public IPv4 addresses for 9 CHF/month. They are mapped via NAT64-SIIT to an IPv6 address of your choice.
The default setup fee of 50 CHF for dedicated servers is removed for this offers.
The offer is limited to 10 dedicated servers on a first come, first serve basis.
Some of you will be doing the calculation of what it costs for hosting it yourself. And we want to be as transparent as possible so that you understand how the price is calculated.
The costs for ungleich consist roughly of:
Some of these can be optimised with larger quantities, but some of them are rather static. However you can see that the network traffic (based on 10~50 Mbit/s average) is one of the bigger parts of the monthly cost.
For that reason, we offer a second, even more affordable version: if you commit on using less than 10 Mbit/s on average (still burstable up to 1000 Mbit/s), we can offer the dedicated APU for 50 CHF/month.
As this is real hardware, hardware failures can occur and they will be repaired without any extra cost. It is however your responsibility to inform the Data Center Light team about issues. Response times according to your selected SLA level.
You can order at the Data Center Light / Dedicated APU Alpine 3.15 or on Data Center Light / Dedicated APU Alpine 3.15 10 Mbit/s.
After the order is confirmed you will get access to the server within 5 working days.
