I know it hasn't even been a week yet (lol), but how is it so far? How many remote streams do you normally do? Just thinking if I want to get the i7 6700k for HW transcoding or not.I signed up for a Dual Xeon E5, 480GB SSD, 32GB server for $59 a month. Sucks that it won't support hardware transcoding but I am very interested to see the difference in reliability. I am going to give this server a try for a couple of weeks. I can report back here for any who are interested in finding a North American host.
FYI, my speeds to Hetzner are very good this evening with 175Mbps down.
