Small VPS for data migrations.
VZ Type: Any
Number of Cores: 1 or 2
Disk Space:15GB would be more than enough.
Disk Type:not important
Bandwidth: 8TB+ (unmetered preferable)
Port Speed: 1 gbps would be the minimum, really hoping for 10gig
DDoS Protection: Nope
Number of IPs: 1 ipv4, just need a port to ssh into. Don’t mind if it’s segmented or shared.
Location: EU or NA
Budget: $5-6 USD /m
On the look out for a tiny server to move a not-tiny amount of data from cloud to cloud for some friends and family. Essentially a VPS for running rclone and Tailscale on.
(I’d really love something that’s got more than 1gbps, but it would suffice.)
Any tips, recommendations, suggestions or offers are welcome and very appreciate. Thanks!
We offer HS2 in Kettering, United Kingdom
£3/month / £7.65/quarter / £27/year
BudgetKVMNL-3 or BudgetKVMDE-3 - $45USD annual both in stock, also some US locations
I am wondering why wouldn’t you use an object storage bucket for cloud backup/migration. Sorry, but I think it is just make more sense and has better prices (paid per GB).
Makes sense and has better prices than what exactly? I never elaborated on my exact needs, so I am just wondering what exactly you are drawing the comparison to.
If a friend of mine has asked for help to move 10TB of his small business's data and old files from Gsuite over to Dropbox Business, please explain how Object Storage would make more sense/be more cost-effective to migrate that data over.
That sounds good to me, I have just registered. How do I go about ordering this HS2+/HS3 service you speak of?
@Crunchbits has a couple plans that'd fit your needs depending on what CPU you'd prefer
1 3.0GHz+ Core
1 IPv4 | /64
1 IPv4 | /64
It seems that I may have misunderstood your requirements when you mentioned that 15G of disk space would be sufficient. Allow me to propose an alternative solution, where you can mount an object storage as a virtual disk on your computer and download your data directly to sync it.
I would look at Melbicom which is unmetered and often over 1gbit even though it says up to 1gbit, Adkynet 2.5gbit unmetered
It's not. They told us that they don't limit bandwidth and that it was unmetered.
A few days later they had limited our throughput to 100Mbit, without any prior notice - leaving clients with 2Mbit speeds due to load. We had only used a couple of terabytes.
I'm not sure what you are proposing solutions to, since it seems that you still have not read my OP.
Data currently exists in Cloud A, and needs to be moved to Cloud B. - You can mount any rclone remote as a virtual disk, my question is why would I want to?
Thank you, everyone, I'm testing with Hostaris now. So far I'm very pleased with their (customer)service. But this isn't the review category.
I recall using RDP service for this kind purpose, it cost only $3/m.
Oh interesting. I guess we have different experiences. I've used it to host Tor Relays before at their Frankfurt location and that is easily 20TB. Maybe things changed since?
Hetzner Cloud seems to be a perfect fit for your requirements. 20TB at 10Gbps with hourly billing.
It was quite recent. I kept asking them why they had obviously limited my speeds - as it was easily before about 1Gbps, and then it was 100Mbps, which they don’t seem to understand. So they just kept sending me scripted responses saying we “guarantee 100Mbps” with no acknowledgement of the bandwidth usage / the bandwidth limitation when they’ve clearly done something because 2 hours ago it was 1Gbps
