Cheap 384MB KVM.

Hello,

As the title says, I'm looking for some cheap KVM, more specifically:

  • 384MB RAM
  • 1 vCPU
  • 5GB HDD/SSD
  • 0.5TB transfer
  • 100Mbit/1Gbit uplink
  • 1xIPv4
  • 1xIPv6
  • rDNS
  • KVM
  • US/EU location (EU preferred, but US will be fine too)
  • Budget: $10-12/yr

Unfortunately I missed some interesting BF/CM offers, so I decided to give it a shot over here.

    Anywhere specific in EU? Huge place with lots of different laws and connectivity. And US is 60-100ms coast to coast.

    Also use safe pointers and references.

  • Tagging @wss to see if he wants to offload some of that virmach stuff.

    Any country which falls under "Europe" is fine (this includes UK), just like any state that falls under "US". Any latency/law differences are not really an issue when it comes to those two regions.

    VirMach is only IPv4.

    Sorry, I'm out of the $4/yr specials. I had a $4.80/yr Budget+ with native IPv6, but that's been claimed by @MasonR. @vmhaus possibly has something that'll foot the bill.

    I won't be back until @bsdguy is released.

  • The $4/year specials were openvz iirc.

    Yeah, they were. I'm still struggling to find a good reason for a KVM with that little RAM. All I've got left are 1G/10G KVMs that are about double what he's asking to pay, and they are not IPv6 native.

    I won't be back until @bsdguy is released.

    OK, check this one then https://anynode.net/vps-kvm-ssd (ex Hostigation). Yes, I realise it comes with 256MB only, I just can't recall a better option offhand.

    Another option https://lowendtalk.com/discussion/comment/2500040/#Comment_2500040 (512MB/5GB-NVMe KVM for €12/yr in UK). I'm not sure whether it is still valid @AlexBarakov

    Ditto @HostHatch awesome KVM NVMe deals.

    Sadly even my little NL KVM boxes are to expensive for this with a dedicated IP :s

    I was inferring that he'll need to kick the budget a little higher than $1/mo if he wants anything other than Aruba.

    Good offers, thanks.

    There's also another one, 256MB KVM, for $12: https://my.pieserv.com/cart.php?a=add&pid=76 -> 256 MB RAM 1 CPU core 10 GB RAID 10 Disk space 500 GB traffic on 1Gbit

    We'll see, if I can't find anything else, I will pick one from above.

    Come on Legolas, why such pessimism, @bersy has shown it's possible.

    legolas so totally wishes he had my beautiful locks.

    Not too many are going to be interested in the bargain-basement range of loss leaders after giving away insane deals several days ago. Can it be done? Sure. Will it? Possibly.

    Show me a thread where @WSS has being optimistic, and for every one that you show me I'll wax a part of my body. You won't find me hairless, that's for sure.

    I must go and build my own little spot on the internet.

    Well if 256 mb is enough you could take a look at the UK KVM's here: https://inceptionhosting.com/vpsukkvm.html

    Dedicenter has a $9/yr 512MB deal still available in LA. Or,. hell, the 1G is only $10/yr. Don't forget to check out LowendStock.

    Holy cow, they have some amazing offers still open (see black friday and 2017 special tabs). But some of them say Sharktech: is that the company that's in some drama thread with Rectified? I'd be hesitant if it's connected, unless that situation sorts itself out.

    Anyway, no more VPS for me for anytime soon, I hope. I got way too many on BF/CM.

    I can do it in Dallas but I am outside the budget :(.

    VikingLayer now offers VPS resource pools. Ask me about them today. :)

  • @willie said:

    They're cheap, but the network is either decent, or hammered. I'd only consider one for a smaller project - I had snagged a couple to replace my Tragic OVZ nameservers that are going offline weekly, now- but I can't trust the network to get UDP packets back and forth quick enough. I wouldn't host anything production with them. Small projects, sure.

    Sharktech is likely who they're reselling, which is the company that seems to be currently holding rectifieds' hardware hostage.

  • WSS said: Small projects, sure.

    Not for me then. I'm setting up a web-scale idle network that must keep idling 24/7. The IPO should be any day now. But I needz big expensive servers for that, heh.

    I'm strongly considering that SpeedyKVM DAL-0 for $1-$1.50/mo to setup as an OVPN base and connect everything together through that to run distcc compiles.

  • WSS said: distcc compiles.

    Interesting. I've never used distcc. I wanted to some time back, but with today's fast machines I haven't felt I needed it. The biggest compile I've done recently was gcc 7.2 which takes about 1/2 hour on an i7-3770 (make -j4). The biggest I do with any regularity is ffmpeg which is about 3 minutes. I could imagine wanting distcc if I did big compilations like gcc more often. I've been interested in compiling it on a big dedi (E5-2670 or whatever) just to see how much differences it makes.

  • Thanks everyone for chipping in.

    I ended up deciding between @AlexBarakov AlphaVPS, @AnthonySmith InceptionHosting, @vmhaus. They all seem like a very reliable choice.

    Dedicenter looked a little bit risky.

    Since AlphaVPS was the one which was the closest to my description, I decided to try it first, and it turned out this BF offer was still valid (thanks @bersy).

    Few bucks over the budget (~$18), but it's Clouvider's UK location, so it should be solid.

  • Come up with another few bills, and get one from both @AnthonySmith, and @vmhaus. You won't be disappointed with your small network!
