Looking for a VPS that allows me to take snapshots easily

Hey there,

I'm working on a project and it'd be nice if I could easily create snapshots of my VPS data to restore easily later if need be. Basically, i'm working on a learning project and would hate to get to a point where I mess something up so badly that I have to start from point blank like I usually do (Fuck up, can't fix it, reload OS). It'd be nice if instead I can just take a snapshot as my work progresses.

Probably need 256MB RAM (initially at least, can probably get everything to run in 96-128 after optimizations), 10GB storage, 50GB transfer. Nothing I'll be doing is CPU or RAM intensive, just going to be used for some development work ontop of a LEMP stack.

Anyone know of a good provider for this?

You can do something similar with us at Fliphost. While it is not exactly taking a snapshot, we take backups every 6 hours that are user restoreable down to the file level, or the entire container.

Yeah, I tested Fliphost's backup system. Very useful, and with a backup every six hours, there are a lot to choose from, with every last file that was on your box.

Holy crap. You win. You just do.
Thank You.

It was a feature that I had been wanting to impliment for a while and when I finally got it right that was the result. Comes standard for all our VPS except the high storage servers..

I'm proud of it

Not to be taken seriously, ever!
If you go for a vmware provider you can make snapshots of your server that you can revert to if needed.

If you get a KVM, you can do it yourself by installing on a filesystem with native snapshots like zfs or btrfs, although it's more work than provider-managed snapshotting/backups.

LFCVPS allows you to take a backup (snapshot) and restore it via our web interface. You can also browse the backup via FTP-over-SSL and download specific files if needed.
