Rent that $ 11,000 supercomputer for just $ 0.39 / hour, but there’s a catch

No, you won’t be able to play Crysis on this but for those who need a little more oomph for their Web hosting projects, there are dedicated servers and this Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday, Ionos offers $ 100 credit on any server setup for the first month, making it a great platform for testers and manufacturers.

(PSA: by the way, we are going to update our Black Friday web hosting deals and Black Friday Website Builder Deals page at least once a day until Cyber ​​Monday)

With per-minute billing, no minimum contract and no installation costs, the Intel-based 4XL-192 HDD is the most powerful affordable dedicated server available from Ionos and is probably more powerful than the best supercomputer of the late 1990s, the Intel-powered ASCII Red which had nearly 10,000 cores, peak performance of 3.21 Tflops, and an attractive price tag of 55 million dollars in today’s dollars.

The 4XL-192-HDD runs on a single Intel Xeon Gold 6210U processor. This Cascade-Lake processor has 20 cores and is clocked at 2.5 GHz and has a peak performance of over 1.5 Tflops. It is also one of Intel’s leading chips in price per flop.

This is backed up by a staggering 192GB DDR4 ECC memory and a pair of 4TB SATA hard drives, configured as RAID-1 for redundancy. Ubuntu 20.04 is included as the default operating system and you can upgrade it to Windows Server 2019.

As with all Ionos Dedicated Servers, there is also an unlimited 1Gbps data channel, to consume as much as you want, load balancing and you can choose the location of your server (either in the US, in Spain, UK or Germany).

A similar Dell Poweredge R640 Rack Server with the same processor and smaller SATA hard drives can be purchased for around $ 11,000 off rebates. Users will be billed per month rather than per hour, and you can cancel your plan risk-free for 30 days. If you’re not completely satisfied, Ionos says you can cancel your contract right in the control panel for a full refund.
