[MPlayer-dev-eng] [FFmpeg-devel] New Server

Hi All,

We're the proposer of the OVH option.

Of course the project people should select the best options but for me is
difficult to argue that the option we propose is not one of the best.

Our offer is a 2 years prepaid high end server under the administrative
and tech management of the ffmpeg community (the contact for the server
will be person you decide, with no relation with our company except 3.000
euros prepaid transfer we'll do). The server would be hosted in a top 5
provider in europe (may be top 1/2 for dedicated servers, nº 3 hosting
provider in the world according netcraft in Jan 2014, 700.000 customers
today) with 100% uptime for their site since two years (0 outages since
April 2013).

For us is difficult to understand it's discarded based on some
not-so-conclusive test (also not applied over the other options in the
same way).

In any case, our offer is still alive next week if you think it twice.

Best regards, AG.

I almost forgot replying. And i guess if i dont reply noone will feel
authorative and reply anytime soon ...

there are only 2 options noone had a argument against.
OVH and vlc had arguments in public,
hetzner (virus issue & 50euro/mo, also public) kierans box is too weak/old
to host all our services but works fine for trac atm

against nexcess / futurehosting.com i receved a private argument from a
rtmpdump developer, as they are US based and hosting rtmpdump in the US is
expected by them to be problematic.

That leaves DreamHack and the Telepoint/MediaHub offer.
I thus accept these 2 offers

Thanks alot !
