Cheapest VPS/KVM for Plex with support for 1080p transcoding & rclone mount

I know there are several deals for KVM which are perfect for non-CPU intensive tasks. And it would be unfair to use them for Plex as the cores are shared among other users.

So far, I have come across a 4$ offering from Contabo which could serve well for Plex. The BuyVM KVM offers an insane value at 2$. But it doesn't have a dedicated core. Is there a similar deal which has a similar value and that can be used with plex for <5$?

    Your budget is unrealistic for dedicated core, unless you can provide a whole data centre with unlimited number of server and min 250 proactive staff at $200 per month

  • The last provider who offered dirt cheap dedicated cores got bought out by nexusbytes real fast and that got discontinued real fast after that.

    hm. I've lost a machine.. literally lost. it responds to ping, it works completely, I just can't figure out where in my apartment it is.

  • Get a dedicated server. If you can’t afford one then move on ...

    Hello,

    While we do not offer dedicated CPU's, I would not mind having you or anyone using a full CPU Core. You know how frustrating it is to have a beast of CPU with 16 threads and only 5 are beeing used? I have several nodes with a decent amount of free CPU, but almost no ram or disk space available. So I can fit you in.

    You can check the offerings here: https://hosterlabs.net/panel/cart.php?gid=24

    Best regards!

    Well, it's a common behavior from hosts that don't have a lot going on.

    Any established hosts would avoid clients like OP.

    You are right, it get's boring once everything is automated and all known issues documented.

  • KVM also oversold. Agree with group members only dedicated server provide dedicated core and other resources

    KVM which are perfect for non-CPU intensive tasks

    As for Plex encoding and transcoding is intensive tasks, you can get dirt cheap small dedicated server and you will be able to archive your goal, but not at $2 /month.

    You could just download content that's already 1080p that way you're doing Directplay which uses very little CPU.

    What's the point of downloading 4k when you're going to transcode it down to 1080p?

    Thank you all for chipping in. I ended up getting a netcup root server RS 1000 G8 SAS. It was on sale with a 30% discount, i.e. ~6 Euros/month. A bit more than I imagined but the speed & performance is pretty solid. This would be my first experience with Plex so, I wanted to get it right.
