Virmach location change [urgent - no prior notice]
Virmach is becoming a disaster.
Here goes the timeline:
Subject: Upcoming upgrades & vote for preferred locations
Dear VirMach Customers,
In the coming months, we will begin offering some customers the option to migrate their service(s) to new servers. While supplies are limited, we will prioritize those customers that provide an answer to this optional customer poll. This should only take a few minutes, and you should only participate if you are interested in migrating to new servers as soon as possible. These new servers will have brand new AMD Ryzen processors with 3.5GHz cores, and much higher performance than previous series Intel processors. They will also have much faster DDR4 RAM, as high as 2x improvement in speeds, and new NVMe SSD drives with up to 10x faster performance. Your service's IP address would also change, we may also offer IPv6, and we may offer a free location change as well if you have a new location you prefer.
Eventually, all customers may be migrated to these nodes in new datacenters (with improved network connectivity as well) but if you want to participate sooner, please answer a few quick questions below.

Please note, we will not be able to discuss this via support ticket as we are collecting large amounts of data.
The VirMach Team.
Do you see any mention of location/country change?
Subject: [Emergency] Immediate Migration on GERKVM1 & GERKVM2
Dear VirMach Customers,
As you may know, these nodes have been having extreme issues, with frequent outages. This is not the type of experience we would like to provide, and the situation is unfortunately worsening. Immediate after this message, we will begin migrating customers away from GERKVM1. Then, once we bring GERKVM2 back online, we will migrate that as well.
Your service's IP address will change, if networking does not function, please click "Reconfigure networking" on your end.
You can view the new IP address on your service details page, under "main IP address."
There will be a few hours downtime as your VPS is migrated.
The new server will be located in Amsterdam, but if we offer Frankfurt in the future, you can switch back.
We apologize for the delay and sudden notice. We did not initially have enough space in Amsterdam to complete migrations. Please know that this is absolutely necessary at this point, as quality of service in the Frankfurt datacenter has regressed and it is no longer acceptable, therefore we are switching partners.
Thank you for understanding, and we apologize for the inconvenience caused.

Do you think it's fair and makes sense to change the country from Germany to the Netherlands without notice? Still not taking into account IP address change.
No, I didn't have many issues with that server. There might some downtimes but still it was working fine.
This is almost 5-year server. I can accept migration to better gear but not location change without giving notice.
