Need a solid network vps in UK - 4 cores, 1GB RAM
NinjaHawk just let me know they're dropping their UK location (with just 2 days notice) so I'm suddenly in the market for a new UK point or presence.
Any flavor of vps with:
Located in Great Britain
Solid network with minimal downtime
4 cpu cores (Not a heavy cpu application but needs multiple threads to run concurrent)
5GB HD (minimal disk usage - mostly just log rotation)
Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit (not required but preferred)
Post for suggestions or offers - or PM if you prefer
@NodePing What I never understood with your business model: You are charging some good money for the monitoring, and claiming that your infrastructure and other costs are high, and therefore the pricing, etc. On the other site: Most of your servers are LEB VPS.
Please let me know, I'm curious!
Ubuntu 12.04 x86
Located in CustodianDC, Kent, UK
PM me to get this offer
While completely off-topic, I'm happy to oblige.
The probe part of our application, written in Node.js, is probably the smallest and least expensive part of our service costs. We use quite a few LEBs for them so we can keep our costs low and because they don't require more horsepower, space, or RAM than a quality LEB provides.
We've got dozens of other servers, dedicated and vps, running web application, API, reporting, various databases, handling results, and sending notifications that are nowhere near the LEB range and are quite costly in comparison. Interestingly, one of our greatest costs is our unlimited international SMS alerts, available on even our smallest accounts. Some locations are much cheaper than others for sending SMS and we actually lose money on some accounts. But we think there's a place in the monitoring service market for a fixed price service where all the bells and whistles are included and your monthly bills don't go up because your servers go down.
If you have any other questions about NodePing, I'll be glad to reply to you inquiries at support(@)nodeping.com
And if you've got any recommendations for great vps service in UK, I'm all ears!
@NodePing I have a few 'cloud' servers for some private projects with DediServe in UK (Connexions4London DC, though I think they have others now too) with 100% uptime for past ~6 months.
Take prometeus !
Prometeus is not in the UK (sadly)
I'd suggest http://www.openitc.co.uk/ -- been with them for over a year and have only had around 20 minutes of scheduled maintenance. Very happy.
4 cores and 1 GB:
DotVPS 1GB KVM (edit: looks like it's sold out)
OnePoundWeb Hosting Xen
They might provide you the same openvz/kvm offer if you request them
Also if it has to be in UK, Why not go for
http://www.ovh.co.uk/vps/vps-classic.xml - Pay them annually - will prove cheaper.
@Jack, I was in their VPS hosting Beta ! They had UK location by than Why isnt its available now, However request you to provide him a LowEndBox exception deal please !
OVH has a DC in Germany?
@agentsmith : May be he was in hurry.
Jack's DotVPS service is a good network in the UK.
Thanks, Short on stock so have sent an offer by PM to @NodePing.
C4L operate out of many DC's.
