Backupsy vs ZXHost

Hi all,

I've been looking for a storage VPS for a while to store some backups and seem to have narrowed it down to either Backupsy (London) or ZXHost (Germany).
Both companies seem to have good reputations and are well respected on these boards - important!

I only really need ~250Gb and don't mind spending up to £/$/€ 15/month for the right provider.

I was hoping you could all help me decide?
Has anyone tried both?

Although I'd prefer a London location, ZXHost does seem to offer "more bang for your buck" for their 500GB-1GB-£9/month plan compared to Backupsy's 250GB-512Mb-$9/month plan (with their 40% discount).

I've looked at BuyVM or time4VPS but unfortunately their locations won't work for me.

Thank you!

    FYI, Backupsy uses HostDime's Custodian DC location in Maidstone. Unfortunately, not in London.

    We've been using @serverian / Backupsy for a few years. VPS is stable, and network is superb. If you're looking for a very reliable service, then Backupsy is the answer.
    Oktay is also a great guy to deal with and talk to.

    Fun fact: I had my stag do in Maidstone. Not in Custodian's DC, obviously. Mental club there called Strawberry Fields, it's like £25 for 2 drinks. Started a 9-man brawl in a KFC. Got back to the hotel at 4am, couldn't sleep because the bloke in the next room was absolutely annihilating his lady friend. He was pretty angry when I knocked on his door suggested that since I could hear every single thrust through the wall, they might as well let me in to watch.
