cloud hosting companies with unmetered bw

hey guys,
i am creating an HQ trivia like app, and needless to say the most expensive thing is the traffic when scalling on AWS and even DO.

scaleway is one perfect example of what i need, hourly pricing, 10gbps nics, unmetered.

but i thought i should ask what are the other options if they exist.

thanks

note: the encoder isnt resource hungry much, a 2 vCPU machine can carry 1000 subscribers, so key here is the bw nic for the 15 min a day

    Keep in mind, true unmetred does not exist. If your usage is significantly higher than the average user you are eventually going to hit a fair use policy. The reason for this is easy, to any provider the uplink and thus bandwidth is among the most expensive resources and people don't run charities. At least with fixed bandwidth limits you actually know how much you can use.

    Hetzner is probably the best you can get, cheap resources and 20TB limits on high speed uplinks. https://www.hetzner.com/cloud

    How much bandwidth are you actually using/needing? I'm gong to assume you probably don't need unmetered bandwidth having used AWS otherwise you'd be bankrupt.

    Hetzner Cloud is a good option at 20TB a month.

    Hetzner Cloud is both cheap and reliable, unlike Scaleway. OVH is also pretty reliable and has unmetered on their new VPS line. Those 3 are the main providers that are used for cheap bandwidth.

    İ think hetzner is best in this field. Even cheapest vps plan has 10gbit connection and 20tb bandwidth.

    And even if you use all your bandwidth and need more, you can buy additional bandwidth for 1€/1TB

    doing the calcuation, at a max of 500k users, its 2.3 petabyte :D

    1 Gbps NICs, meaning i need about 900 instead of 90 per show (if peak is reached)

    i am really curious to see, i opened a ticket with them, and even talked to them on the phone, and they insist that it is as long your not doing illegal stuff

    per hour has no bandwidth included :neutral:

    actually i think i might just go with them, i already have a server there and pretty happy with the service, going to have to check how they count the BW for the hourly instances though

    for hourly ? its kinda open 😂, my max scenario is provisioning 100instances 2 times a day for an hour

    yep already signed up there,
    still waiting on the reply regarding hourly instances BW allowance.

    and its a petty that they dont look to have a hosted Kubernetes option, or even a hosted scalable database, wouldve been useful for the other components of the app

    It's prorated, so it's always cheaper to keep the instance running, as bandwidth overage is 1 euro per TB, but the total bandwidth allowance in a 2.5 euro VPS is 20 TB.

  • a7medo778a7medo778 Member

    looks good but whole backend is limited to 40Gb's, might get blocked soon lol

    yes, but i am paying a media encoder license per running instance, which is why i am always going to provision the biggest (at least till the network interface is theoretically 80% utilized)

    does prorated means pooled?
    if thats the case, i can always provision additional instances at the end of the month to close out the overages

    mmmm hetzner dont have the option to attach your own image as well, but i guess i can try the snapshot feature

    update: hetzner allows for 10tb for the hourly instance, which is pretty good

    now searching for ways to scale mysql and docker (since they dont have managed services for that)

    It seems to be something based on 1Gbps port speed in place of 10Gbps, which increases the number of servers required by a magnitude (10x).

  • @Hetzner_OL still at sub 10 instances, but growing fast :P , would love a loadbalancer as a service though, managing ports is a pain

    That's great to hear! This is one of the most popularly requested items on our customer wishlist. Our team is already at work on it. --Katie
