EU / east coast based Windows VPS


Content Contributer

a friend of mine is searching for a Windows VPS in EU or on the west coast. Not much needed for a testing machine. He might be able to bring his own license (MSDN).
I did not ever searched / followed for windows offers so I kindly ask for recomendations.

OVH prices are a little lower than mentioned (8 euro for 2gb etc) and they also have a Quebec location ( /, if of interest.  Their current cloud VPS is a new product so I don't know of anyone who has tried it yet, but I've been a bit intrigued by its high availability feature.  It uses the Ceph distributed file system on very fast SSD's, something like RAID except the data is spread across multiple machines in a local cluster instead of multiple drives on a single host.  I think that means if a node crashes, they can immediately reboot its containers on other machines in the cluster.  So they advertise a 99.99% SLA which is very high for a VPS (it will be interesting to see if they achieve this).
