I am on the same situation as @danb35 : Running NethServer on a Contabo medium SSD VPS. (12GB memory, 300GB SSD diskspace and 4 Xeon E5 cores. And that for EUR9,- per month! I just haven’t seen it anywhere near that price… And 1 snapshot included so whenever I need to make a major change, I do a snapshot. If the change goes sour, I revert back and am up and running again within a minute.
Data backup goes to stackstorage from transIP. This is an owncloud based 1TB free online storage.
/edit: just had a look at AWS EC2 information. What a complete MESS they have created. There is just no option to find out what a VPS costs per month. This is just something for companies that just don’t care what they pay for a VPS.
