Looking for VPS provider June 22, 2011Posted by CK in IT.
The home server project is more or less over, following a power outage today. I’d be very willing to keep it always on, but if I’m to use this as a service to rely upon, I have to get such disruptions out of the way. So I’m looking for an unmanaged VPS provider, who should a) be relatively cheap, b) be relatively reliable (three 9s would be nice), c) have a/the data center in Europe, d) offer Xen with plans between 512 and 768 MB guaranteed RAM and e) allow me to install the system myself or accept ready-made images, so that I can have the disk data encrypted.
If you know of such a provider, please leave a comment here or reply on twitter at @ckotso — thanks.
