Hetzner_Online
This is not true. OVH and Hetzner Online GmbH are two entirely separate entities.

Dr. McKay, If you are interested in Hetzner Online products, our Product Advice team will be happy to help you. You can find their info on our website under the contact information. If you are looking for a cheaper dedi server, you may want to check out our server auction. --Katie, Marketing, Hetzner Online

I think Linode is a really good alternative. They have competitive pricing and very solid services which can be vouched for from clients for years.

I checked Linode, its just VPS hosting, prefer dedicated server offers.

If you have to pick a cheaper OVH branch go for SoYouStart, kimsufi are old decommissioned servers from OVH and SoYouStart.
While SoYouStart is the previous OVH server generation, which is still good enough depending on your requirements.

What 1 x 1.000 GB SATA is used for?
Since the above mentioned setup consits of a small 120 GB SSD without raid, the 1000 GB HDD can be used to store backups or another configuration example where the SSD is used for databases and the HDD for files and storage.

Where do you get such informations? Soyoustart and Kimsufi uses same second hands hardware from ovh, the different between sys and kimsufi is that kimsufi is limited with only one 1ip and at 100mbps cap nothing more.

You can check its stated somewhere on their website.


Soyoustart and Kimsufi uses same second hands hardware from ovh.
The previous Generation of servers from OVH goes to SoYouStart which allows 16IP's without mothly fees, SYS is their budget brand. While on the other hand Kimsufi servers come from the previous SoYouStart generation and are not really suitable for production servers anymore according to todays hosting standarts. However they are still good for personal use for people such as developers and students, thats why I called them decommissioned.

Would like to know where did you get such informations :)
I got the information from their website at Kimsufi under "who for and what for?" where it becomes pretty obvious that they are not production suitable servers. They state the use of the Kimsufi range is for Training purposes, community or personal hosting, sandbox, storage and remote desktop.

About the server transition process from OVH to SoYouStart and later on to Kimsufi there was plenty of discussion here on Forumweb, otherwise is no secret.
https://forumweb.hosting/14618-soyoustart-vs-ovh-for-dedicated-server.html

The different between sys and kimsufi is that kimsufi is limited with only one 1ip and at 100mbps cap nothing more.
What about the completely different hardware configuration and no raid or secondary drive options, those don't count as a difference?

I don't know how would you rate a dedicated server thats they are not for production suitable which in their website said under: "who for and what for?"
Hosting

Host a personal or community website or applications on your own platform. Manage your sites with simplified control panel administration.
Do you mean own applications or our own website who we use to sell our products and store customers details is not in production category?

Neither is stated that is not for production use, as you can see they guarantee:

A rigorous verification procedure
In order to provide our customers with quality servers, every Kimsufi machine undergoes a series of technical compliance and performance tests, under all possible conditions. Prior to delivery, a robot verifies that the hardware matches what the customer has ordered and that its performance meets the specifications.
We will check:
The processors (conformity, load test, temperature)
The RAM (size, memtest)
The BIOS (BIOS version, virtualisation)
The disks (speed, S.M.A.R.T, firmware version, etc.)
If an error is detected, one of our technicians will intervene on the machine to replace the faulty hardware.
Hardware guaranteed for life
If your Kimsufi server goes down, you will automatically receive an email stating the time that the incident was detected. Our technicians are on site in our datacentres 24/7 and will take control of the machine and launch the diagnostic. We will keep you informed and update you when we start working on your server. We will send you a full report as soon as the incident has been resolved.
So we have a ovh dedicated server with around 30k power on hours, while in our kimsufi we got:
9 Power_On_Hours 0x0012 097 097 000 Old_age Always - 22476
It's normal that you cannot use kimsufi server for selling hosting/vps/etc because you get only 1 IP at 100mbps that's why they have such prices and not that they are not for production use.

As you edited:

You get what you paid for.

Hi Albahost,
do you allow to use our own PA ipv4 /24 space to announce to your dedicated servers?
I checked with my marketing team, and they said that you may do this, but it costs €99/month. If you have more questions about this, you can contact our Product Advice department and they will be able to help you. You can find their contact information by clicking on the telephone or envelope icons at the top of our website. (I'm not sure if forum rules here allow me to add links, so I will not put one on.) --Katie

It's nothing against forum rules posting a link with informations, however i have asked via email hetzner and they said its not possible. Btw 99€/month it's quite expensive while many other companies does not charge for that or they charge a small amount and one time fee setup. We have servers with zare.com and ipv4 /24 are free announced.

Hi AlbaHost, I apologize for the confusing information. It is true that we cannot help you in this case. We can only offer the announcemtn for PI sbunets (but not PA), and for PI, we only do that for colocation customers. There are some situations where PA works as well, but again, this is only for our colocation customers. I hope that I did not cause you any inconvience. Please note that our Product Advice department has read your comments here on the thread. --Katie

Thank you Katie, we just got an email from your staff too about this. I actually don't knwo the role about PI or PA both will do the same work, i just don't get it why or whats the difference renting a dedicated server or colocationg a dedicated server and announce subnets. Does not both PI/PA and Dedi/Colo use your network? Anyway, let us know if you change your rules and allow announcing our own subnet to your dedicated range, might be interested.

Cheers.

A colleague from our Product Advice department explained that use a different kind of routing in our colocation centers. In the colocation centers, clients get their won gateway (router port), and with our dedicated root server, the clients do not get their own gateway.
If there is enough demand for our team to make a change, they will, and if they do, I will make sure to announce it here. Thanks again for your feedback! It's important for us to hear back from our customers and potential customers! --Katie
