    Windows VPS: Looking for advice

    Hi,

    We're looking to set up a Windows VPS as a monitoring center for our various dedicated servers located around the world (US / UK / elsewhere)

    This VPS would need to run a Windows service application continuously - that would automatically check our servers, and compile statistics or deal with issues with them and alert us as required. This would be an app with low memory/CPU footprint. Additionally, we may also use a webserver (Apache for Windows)

    Our requirements - reasonably good uptime (not super-high end); reasonable bandwidth (< 5 Mbit... 2 Mbit should be fine); located preferably in the US or UK; price [flexible] in the USD 30 - 40 range; atleast 64 MB RAM.

    Which providers would you suggest? We would like a provider that offers quality (considering all aspects of their service).

    Thank You,

    I would say have a look at Rus on A2B2 or CheapVPS but it seems they may have discontinued their Windows VPS, at least I cant see Windows as an option any more.

    You should email them to see what they can do.

    We use a Windows VPS from KiloServe to run some backup network monitoring apps. It's been good to us. We also have a Linux VPS from JaguarPC that has been running fairly well (they also sell Windows VPS)

    Did you really mean "min 64MB" ram? How is Windows going to run in that?

    1. Our mistake there. We're looking at machines with 512MB or greater.

    2. Thanks for all your recommendations so far...the two that most suit our needs seem to be SolarVPS and KickAssVPS, with the others being backups in case we need them!

    Feel free to send any other quality ones our way. Thanks again for the help!

    Prices seem pretty darn competitive to me. Like the bold name, Brian!
