Looking for potential netcup replacement - KVM, 500GB+, 8GBM RAM+, Germany+EU
I'm hosting a bunch of service for family and friends:
- Nextcloud instance with Nextcloud talk (spreed)
- Several nginx based web servers (image gallery, blog, static files)
- DNS with pi-hole, unbound and DoH
- The odd gameserver (minecraft with 4-10 players, not always on)
- voice chat (mumble)
- IPV4 / IPV6 (routable to docker containers)
All in all not too busy. The webservers get busy from time to time.
I'm looking for something fast, with access to bulk storage which can be slower. Maybe one of those hybrid offerings would be fine: NVME for all things system, network storage / SATA for bulk.
I am currently running a netcup G8 KVM "root" server and mostly happy with it, but maybe there's something else on the market - netcup changed in tonality of service in the past years and I feel less warmly treated. Maybe that is just a bi-product of their success.
Price range: Up to 15 EUR, better less per month. I am ok with 12 months contracts.
Location: Germany would be best, but European union in general works.
Reliability above speed and price for me, since it's a single server running "micro'ish" services in docker in flatcarOS. Automated (Live) Backups would be superb, because those have been a pain with netcup: Just one snapshot, often the server required storage optimization before and this plus backup meant downtime.
I've looked at netcup G9 for 15 EUR per month with 6 months contract and at the offers of @novos, who answered me very quickly after I asked for more info.
