Really cheap San Jose VPS

Anyone have recommendations? Very tiny is fine - 128/256MB RAM, 5GB disk or less. Local cache for some JS/CSS. DDoS protection unnecessary but would be nice. Xen PV, Xen HVM, VMware, or KVM required.

Can pay with PP or BTC. Ideally less than 2-3ms to Internap SJC or Santa Clara.

    VIrmach?

    E: Oh. They won't let you do 256s in San Jose now likely due to abuse. Sucks.

    TinyKVMs' LA spot is about 8ms from if that's good enough.

    2019 was the year of Amitz.

  • No CC, unfortunately. Generally weird results.

  • If Fremont might be close enough then check with @freerangecloud

  • just checked to confirm - getting 2 sometimes 3 ms ping from freerangecloud in Fremont to Virmach in San Jose

    @freerangecloud will probably be your best bet for cheap mini deal (might be able to get something for $15 yearly)

    other options, not exactly cheap: AquaNX (San Jose) and Atlantic.net (Santa Clara)

    He doesn't want Virmach. He wants InterNap in San Jose.

    @WSS - thanks, indeed I am suggesting freerangecloud - just using VirMach to test ping time from freerangecloud in Fremont.

    figuring if it can do 2 ms ping to Virmach in San Jose, chances are decent could see similar latency from freerangecloud in Fremont to InterNap in San Jose.

    That is all. :)

  • @WSS said: He doesn't want Virmach. He wants InterNap in San Jose.

    Virmach's US West locations seem to be very... random when it comes to performance. I assume because of the huge amount of VPN users running there.

    The destination for NFS/etc is Internap SJ. This VPS can be mostly anywhere close enough.

  • I remember when InterNap came to ask us to use them and we were like PFFT we dual homed, we got a T1 and another T1. Whatchuu want bitch?

    Of course, that was 1999, so..

  • I bought a Kamatera $9/m in Santa Clara. It looks like Cogent. Perf is kind of meh. Any others?

    San Jose using Gold 6136, dont know where but it has IPv6 so definitely not CC

    relentless collector of highest clocked, highest performing KVM/NVMe/Gbit VPSes at the most competitive rates. just to hard idle them. zero knowledge on coding/programming; a mere hobbyist.

    We do a $15/yr special, 512MB RAM, 15GB disk in Fremont (thanks for tagging us in @uptime). If you send me an IP I can ping it from our infra and let you know what the latency is. Alternatively, our looking glass is: http://fmt.lg.freerangecloud.com/
