Looking for VPSes suitable for backup purposes


Hello,

Thanks to everyone who helped inquest of Xen-powered VPS providers.

Now I am looking for 3-4 VPS providers offering VPSes suitable for monitoring/backup needs, namely

- 128-256Mb RAM
- 20+Gb of space
- unmetered 10Mbps (or better) connectivity, or at least 150-200Gb/month
- price below $5/monthly (yearly/semi-annual term OK)
- provider 3+ years in business, with good reputation
all the rest is less important.

Locations: USA (any state), Europe (preferably UK, Germany, France), Australia.

NB: I know of VPS offers subforum. Don't redirect me there, I need recommendations from actual users of what I am looking for.

I have one candidate on list, SecureDragon.net. What would you suggest in addition?

Thanks.

SecureDragon is excellent.

Hostigation and BuyVM are other options, but I think they're both out of stock at the moment.

Other answers depend on how "plus" that 20+ GB is :-)

An alternative is Amazon S3. It's not a VPS and you have to use their libraries, etc., but $5/month will get you 50GB there, and bandwidth to S3 is free.

Yes, Hostigation/BuyVM.net are out of stock. What's worse, they don't care to mark items as out of stock, that's very annoying.

At the moment I Amazon S3 as additional backup storage, as well as BQBackup.com. Both are very reliable. However, 'there ain't such thing as too many backups

"Plus" is just plus. At the moment 5Gb is enough to store several years of backups I have. However, archives always grow.

Thanks.

I bet.
However, your backup offers, although solid and reliable, in this case are somewhat above the plank.

A single phrase "Everything's out of stock" would look especially good.

BurstNET often has a recurring coupon code that will bring the cost of their 512 MB OpenVZ VPS package under your $5 budget.

VMLIT's OpenVZ Bronze France package is quite close to your requirements. Around $0.60 over you budget, and have not been in business for over three years but has everything else you want.

Their KVM K-STARTER is about $0.3 over budget.

I have a VPS with them, albeit not heavily utilized. No problems so far.

Indeed. Well, when that happens, I'll be more than glad to return to Burst.net. However, 5.95 isn't too much right now, I only prefer specialized backup plans rather than general purpose VPS.

Thanks, that's not too much over.
I'll check at once.

Your budget is too low and your going to get what you pay for low end crash vps never up and running spend about 15 dollars per month so you can sleep at night and feel like you know it is on and working.

O, really?

You see, I am quite good at finding inexpensive, but extremely useful solutions. I buy what is stable and good enough to be used.

Talking of backups, for example, I use BQBackup's starter plans, for $5 a month. Reliable, fast, not a single failure.

I used several times Burst.net lowest Linux VPSes (and quite 'heavy' sites were running there fast and without a single failure). And so on and so forth.

The saying 'you get what you pay for' means only the total amount of efforts matches the result. So far, I haven't experienced total data loss/long service disruption/something similar.

But thanks for the wisdom, yes.
