Can someone recommend a cheap, high bandwidth VPS for a non-sysadmin?

GaugeGauge Member

Hello, I'm looking for a VPS I can install rclone in to move large amounts files between my Google Drive and Mega.nz backups. I was attracted to Racknerd's 3TB/month, $9.38/year offer, but I don't want to have to buy/manage a domain.
I'd like somewhere I can SSH into without too much setup. Should I use a google cloud VM or a Scaleway Stardust1-s ($2.18 for 100mbps unlimited), or are there any VPSs here that would be more appropriate for me?

    Definitely not Google Cloud if you're dealing with a large volume of network transfer, you'll pay up the ass for bandwidth in no time.

    If you want ease of use, best network throughput for the cost and flexibility I'd recommend the Scaleway Stardust. It may say 100mbps but that's just the sustained (If you run it constantly for an entire month) speed, it likes to peak to 1Gbps frequently and should serve well for your purpose.

    There are of course other providers like the RackNerd one mentioned, but I personally think for someone like you it might be better to use one of the bigish cheap clouds like Scaleway.

    As far as "SSH into without too much setup", you just add your SSH key to their site and you're away. They even have documentation for people who don't know what an SSH key is.
