Need advice on pay-as-you-go CPU Servers

Hi guys:
I will do some NLP work and need to training my models, could you help advice me some providers on pay-as-you-go CPU Servers? Or do you know some platforms serve clients like me? No GPU requirement.

Maybe OVH is a choice, if any others?

Thank you for your help

    On a more serious note, LunaNode is excellent value and their performance and stability is even better. They have Canada and France options. $USD 3.50/mo gets you started.

    BinaryLane for Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth in Australia. Unbeatable low-end value, again, excellent performance and stability. $AUD 4/mo gets you a seat on a server in Brisbane. Blows my mind.

    I would recommend both those providers all day long. My go-to for "I really need this shit to work and not worry about it going offline" projects.

    Do you have a large dataset? If you do, you might take a really long time without a dedicated GPU, and I am not sure if cloud providers have any limits on CPU usage.

    LunaNode gives you the option to pay extra for dedicated use of CPU, it's actually kinda neat. I did that so I could transcode some large videos without abusing the node, and it worked out nicely. Not even expensive either.

    thanks, maybe I will try LonaNode Compute-Optimized Virtual Machines, btw, do you know which cpu they use?

    ah, yes, I happen to have a Hetzner account 😄

    ah, some effective algorithm like gensim will not cost GPU resource 😜. No GPU is not to purse cheap, but to fit my need. 😝

    I hope that helps. Not sure if their entire fleet is identical though. Maybe @perennate can shed some light :-)

    Oh. I will check out gensim. Wasn't aware of non-GPU based NLP toolkits; I am too used to using GPU-based ones.

    maybe just in some special cases, I will do some word2vec.

  • Scaleway have baremetal server with per hour pricing so you can rent whole powerfull server for 1 hour for cheap.
    On other hand if you plan to do alot stuff monthly renting server may be cheaper option.
    Scaleway for example have server for around 329 euro a month (in hourly billing). You could get similar server when it comes to CPU foraround $100 a month. Sometines even cheaper.

    hetzner cloud is also good when it comes to prive/performance ratio

  • @Creling if you want free Upcloud credits I can give you some to fire up their 20 core servers for 1.5 days

  • You can try hetzner or linode (only if you need asian location)

    hhhh, 0.5 day will be enough for trialing. I might pm you when I need it. thank you 2333

  • Upcloud, but they asked for CC/DC

    LEMPer is yet another LEMP stack installer (plus cli-based LEMP stack management tool).
    Start your LEMP stack on the reliable cloud VPS instance starting only from around $5/mo.

  • Wholesaleinternet provide hourly charged servers, the last one that I saw started from like 7 cents, this was yesterday though and dont know if its still there.
