Hi all

as you all probably know FFmpeg/Mplayer/... is searching for a
new free server & hosting ...

We received the following offers for a new server and hosting.
If you think any of them are a bad choice then please speak now!
i ommited one non free offer and one unspecific offer from a company who
alternatively would want to finnancially sponsor us.
as well as at least one which would be technically insufficient

If i forgot some offer or theres a mistake in the list below please
reply and add/correct the offer ASAP!

I also intend to add a mention & link to the footer of the FFmpeg
webpage for whoever is choosen, several of the sponsors below did
not ask for that though.
If you object to that, again, please speak now.

I intend to accept 2 of the offers below for redundancy, again if you
think something else should be done, speak now!

    We have a few machines spare, and the most suitable of those machines would
    be this:
    1x E5-2407
    48GB Ram
    4x 4TB SATA (In what ever raid config you want)

    The location where it will be hosted as redundant 10G connection
    from AS12552 (www.ip-only.se).
    The machine would get an own VLAN with a /29 IPv4 and a /64 IPv6

7. from Telepoint and MediaHub
    We can offer you 1 Gbps international connectivity + the server below
    both *for free* (no monthly taxes or any taxes) and you'll be completely
    autonomous and free to do with it anything as you see fit.
    The datacenter where it'll be colocated (Telepoint) is one of the top
    datacenters in Bulgaria and has been built to cover all standards in the
    practice. You can see more information and the connectivity it has here:

    The machine we can offer you (it will be ordered brand new):
    MB: Supermicro X10DRL-i
    CPU:  IntelĀ® Xeon E5-2630 V3 8-Core 2.40 GHz x 2
    RAM: 64 GB DDR4 Reg. ECC
    Storage: LSi storage controller with 4 x 2 TB server disks in RAID 1 + 0 configuration (or any
    other if you would like something different)
    Redundant power supply unit

    All of this will be backed by the UPS and the autonomous power generator of the datacenter in terms
    of power and by all the carriers you can see on the link above in terms of connectivity.
    We can easily plug both gigabit adapters for fail-over just in case if the adapter should fail.
    Of course, there is 24h support available at the datacenter, too.
    If you need anything else or need more information please let us know and we'll adjust the offer
    or provide you with any details you need.
