100GB of KVM/Xen storage in Europe

NyrNyr Member

I need some storage within Europe. Don't want OpenVZ and only established providers (3+ years in business, own network, etc...). Any European location will do.

The options which I can think of are:

  • XenPower - my preferred option, pretty cheap also
  • Vultr
  • OVH/Ikoula dedi - out of stock/would prefer to avoid

Suggestions? Ideally I don't want to pay more than ~50€/year for this.

    KVM Virtualization
    1 vCPU (Intel Xeon L5520/L5630, Fair share)
    512 MB Memory
    100GB RAID 50 Storage Space
    2TB Traffic Limit
    1Gbps Uplink
    1 IPv4

    I use this for Windows backup. 40$ per year. Atleast i take comfort that its RAID-50 with backups.

    since its for storage why not OpenVZ if you can still request nfs, fuse or other modules beforehand?

    • do not prepay > 1 year and check for reviews/support
    • only use monthly from a provider operating < 1 year 🍆
  • NyrNyr Member

    @jaakka not in Europe and not their own network. They are a pretty new business too, although not by LET standards.

    @bersy doesn't fit my requirements either, just a random OVH provider :(

    @ehab security, reliability, isolation... OpenVZ is ok to play and some little tasks, but it's very limited.

    How long to you need it for mate?

    Here lies Nekki. He loved massive amounts of storage, K-Pop and calling people cunts.

    It's going to be a backup box, so long term. I wouldn't have a problem prepaying a full year.

  • ehabehab Member

    @Nyr , can you please tell or link me to topics about where/when openVZ didn't offer reliability, isolation!

    I don't even know where to start. Anyway I can't get an OVZ for this even if I wanted since encrypted volumes will be used.

    OK - I was going to offer you my Kidichere if it was short-to-medium term use, which I'm still happy to do if you don't mind possibly having to vacate after 9-12 months?

    FYI, if you cant get what you wanted i used on openVZ rsync to push an encfs directory mounted using nfs / sshfs and has been fine. Also tested watching a clip and sometimes its bumpy but its oky.

    I appreciate your kind offer, but I have some of them myself :) This is to backup some content hosted at a bigger Online.net box, so I want something with a different provider, just in case.

    Fair enough mate, I wanted to do something as a thank you for the OpenVPN script I've used so much, but clearly another Online.net box doesn't help you. I've made a small donation via paypal instead to help go towards getting yourself something decent.

    I appreciate your intention, but this data is pretty important to me and I would prefer to pay a bit more if needed than to use some hackish setup.

    I will probably go with one of the Prometeus boxes or some small dedi. Anyway I still have two months until a migration is needed, so can wait for some new deals too :)

    You are awesome, man. It was not needed at all, but thank you for being so kind. I'm happy to know my work is useful to others, feels good :)

  • NyrNyr Member

    Thanks all for the offers. I got some very nice and unexpected offers and if it were for me I would have got 3 of them. Nice to know this community still has some very nice and reliable providers doing deals.

    @AnthonySmith thank you, got it done.

    cociu said: i can assigurate you will be verry verry safety with us

    I already got what I wanted, but not really interested in the services of an ISP which publicly advertises how they ignore the law. I would prefer my node not to be raided, no offense.

    @Nyr lol what Law i ignore ? we are located in Romania , can you tell me what kind of law we ignore ? if one law dont exist here ... what can i do ? Never mind , i am glad to see you are find what you search , and for "raided" i am not affraid, we have publish our identity in our webpage so if we brake any Law ... here i am :) Regards

  • NyrNyr Member

    @cociu don't get me wrong, no one really cares about copyright infringement most of the time, but there is a difference between the OVH attitude and yours.

    cociu said: if one law dont exist here ... what can i do ?

    Don't you have copyright laws down there? DMCA doesn't apply obviously, but you need to comply with the EUCD and looking at your advertisements, you ignore it. Anyway I am not a lawyer, you should probably ask one.

    cociu said: and for "raided" i am not affraid

    Let me know in some years down the road if you follow this path. You do this now because no one cared to start action against you, yet.

  • cociucociu Member, Provider

    @Nyr i cannot compare our bussiness with ovh , first OVH is verry verry big , second OVH dont have bussiness in Romania , Now you can compare our TOS with Voxility DC (dc from Romania) and you will see shome interesed words. Now if you want understand i am not search for problems , i really invery verry very much in my little bussines so dont get me wrong ... i dont need problems. Until sell shomething i really read the law. And what i tell you ... never mind i just ofert you shomenting and i know is your choise to buy from the isp what you want. Regards

  • NyrNyr Member
    edited May 2015

    @cociu I am not going to keep going around circles and this is off topic anyway. Just so you know: Voxility has got servers raided plenty of times, but they don't really care about some lost boxes.

  • cociucociu Member, Provider

    @Nyr ok , the circle is close , you know you Law , we are here i am verry verry shure in what i do. Regards

  • 4n0nx4n0nx Member

    I think a lot of providers ignore DMCA because it's not a thing in their country. My VPN provider restricts P2P in USA but not in any other country..

    Because European ISPs don't care about P2P, mostly. But a user torrenting is different than a site openly hosting pirated stuff and not taking it down.

    I guess they only need to act if there is a court order. A lot of the private trackers I know are hosted in Romania or Hongkong.. or they are behind cloudflare even XD

    No. There are provisions to make ISPs not liable for the actions of their users, but they don't imply a court order.

    Hong Kong... that's weird, specially since DDoS is very common unfortunately. Most are either behind CF or OVH this days, it's funny how kiddies are helping to centralize some parts of the Internet.

    Pretty expensive. Already got what I wanted, but thanks :)

  • Looks like I forgot to hit submit on this response to @nyr. So edited and posted :

    If anyone else is looking for something similar : I'm looking to offload a 'launch special' xenpower-XL 400gb storage vps to an existing Prometeus client with good standing account.

    renewal price is $66.8 annual for :
    2core, 2gb ram, 400GB disk, 4tb bw, 1ipv4,ipv6 available.

    LET people, Is this completely off-topic? Or should I always create a separate thread?

  • After checking https://www.prometeus.net/billing/cart.php?gid=20 just now,

    I've decided not to post a separate thread since this offer price is pretty much matched by Prometeus official price.

    Time for mods to close thread, I guess.

  • Yep, we keep reducing prices and upgrading products, so, eventually, even great deals from yesteryear will be matched by current regular prices.
    However, there are extra discounts for customers in good standing.
