Storage VPS with occasional high speeds for media server and seedbox
I am looking for recommendations to host a media server (Plex / Jellyfin) and seedbox (rtorrent, Sonarr, Radarr, Bazarr, Jackett). The most important criteria for me are:
1. occasional bursts of high speeds (for uploads and racing, total approx 20-30hrs per month). 2. 5TB+ storage for media server. 3. budget is flexible / looking for the best value for money.
I do not mind being on a shared box with occasional extreme speeds, as long as I get SSH access and flexibillity to install the basic software mentioned above. I will be happy with basic CPU and RAM. For the network, I am not sure whether to get a dedicated 1Gbps (e.g. the Leaseweb example below) or a shared 20Gbps (e.g. the PulsedMedia example below). So, I am open to ideas. Traffic usage will be less than 50TB per month (private trackers 99% + public trackers 1%), plus streaming traffic (which should be negligible).
I have found two options which I liked:
1. Leaseweb Dedicated Server NL - Intel Xeon E3-1230 | 16GB RAM | 4x3TB HDD | 1gbps / 30TB traffic - €30.99/mo
2. PulsedMedia Toruk - Resources shared with approx 26 users (AMD EPyC 7551, 128GB RAM, 20gbps network) | 5TB RAID10 storage | 50TB traffic - €27.99/mo
However, I am open to other suggestions, options and offers. Your ideas on dedicated resources vs shared resources will also be very helpful.
In compliance with the Request forum guidelines, here are the requirements:
VZ Type: ANY Number of Cores: ANY RAM: 8GB+ Disk Space: 5TB+ Disk Type: HDD Bandwidth: 50TB+ Port Speed: 1gbps dedicated / 10-20gbps shared with other users DDoS Protection: Yes Number of IPs: 1 Location: ANY Budget: less than $100 Billing period: flexible (monthly / quarterly / yearly)
