OVH and OVH resellers do seem to have some insane prices. On the other end, the waterfilling assumption we were working off of was a water level of 10Mbps. A server that can sustain that seems quite cheap. In fact, a quick Google search for “cheap vps” yielded this offer of a VPS with one IPv4 address and a 1Gbps port capped at 2TB/month for $0.63/month: <https://my.hiformance.com/cart.php?a=confproduct&i=0 <https://my.hiformance.com/cart.php?a=confproduct&i=0>>. 2TB/month is about 6Mbps sustained, which falls below the supposed water level and thus gets fully allocated to guard probability. Thus to achieve in waterfilling a total guard probability equal to that of 1Gbps relay in today’s Tor (taking into account the 1/3 loss of bandwidth to the middle position in today’s Tor), one could run 1000*(2/3)/6 ~= 112 of these at $71/month. This would be cheaper than the price below of $100/month for 1Gbps.
Can we get even lower attacking either system…? :-) Best, Aaron > On Mar 7, 2018, at 4:01 PM, Alexander Nasonov <al...@yandex.ru> wrote: > > Aaron Johnson wrote: >> Currently on OVH the best I could find for hosting just now was >> $93.02/per month for 250Mbps unlimited >> (https://www.ovh.co.uk/dedicated_servers/hosting/1801host01.xml). > > https://www.ovh.com/world/discover/poland.xml > > $49.99/per month, 500 Mbps bandwidth (burst 1 Gbps ) unlimited > > My new relay runs there > http://rougmnvswfsmd4dq.onion/rs.html#details/2235E316DF8E737081A365A1386F36035592A6BD > > but I'm not very happy with the setup because this particular offer > doesn't come with IPMI console and I had to install Proxmox Linux > and run NetBSD in a virtual machine.
