Need help choosing
So I have been checking out VPS offers from various providers. And I have limited it to these two providers.
Either a package from Hostigation or Edis.at:
From Hostigation, the OVZ-1024 $10/month
Pros: Awesome service, speed and nice disk space.
Cons: American [see further in post for why this would matter].
From Edis.at, the VRS ADVANCED 11 EUR/month
Pros: European, also awesome service and speed, more dedicated ram.
Cons: Less disk space
The VPS will be mainly used for basic data processing, it will mostly get information from APIs and store it into a database, this information and static content is then send to another VPS that serves the content. So the VPS I want will mainly be doing the processing. However, the only resource intensive part is the mysql queries to clean up all the old stuff, however this isn't that massive, it isn't like the resources used to compile something or to run a benchmark. It is basically the same as a busy dynamic website. Memory that will be used is about 200mb max. Bandwidth usage per month also isn't really a factor since it will be about 150gb max per month. The disk space might be a factor, but it won't be growing that much, 30gb max. In future this VPS will also host a wordpress website, but will obviously be optimized.
So both packages will be awesome for its work. Hostigation is a little bit cheaper, but is hosted in the US. While the one from Edis is a little bit faster, but is hosted in the EU, that is much closer to my country's cable routes and the time zone is almost the same.
Both offer basically the same ram. It seems that the connection speed is faster on Edis, if hosted in Austria.
Why the big packages for my small needs? Well, we love the head room for further expansion. And if we ever need it we can always fall back to one of the other servers.
So what do you think. Please keep your thoughts subjective and not fanboy love.
Both providers seem awesome. So it is quite difficult to pick the rightful one, based on my needs.
