Help my Plex server find a new home!

Help my Plex server find a new home!

So, OVH's 20% price rise has royally fucked me in fudge tunnel the has made my Plex box unsustainable. It's only a £7ish price hike, but as I'm only running this for friends and family there's a limit and I have to be strict.

The spec of the current server is way OTT anyway, so my minimum requirements are more modest.

CPU: Something that that runs a PassMark in the region of 6k
RAM: 4GB
HD: 2TB
BW: 100Mb/s
Data transfer: 4TB (first month only), 2TB thereafter
Location: Europe, close to the UK the better, but not actually inside the UK.
IPv4: 1
IPv6: 1 address would be nice to have, not absolutely essential though
Price: £30/$40

Obviously aware of the usual Kimsufi shenanigans but I haven't time to sit there waiting for the right model to become available. Online.net can go and fuck themselves.

Let me know what you have!

    You don't have to. Germany loves you! At least one single weirdo in the center of the country does. <3
    And - on a more serious note - fuck OVH. Go with Hetzner IF you decide to go with Germany.

    As I said, fully aware of Kimsufi and I'm not waiting around for the right model to come in stock. The model you've referenced doesn't meet my CPU requirement.

    Doesn't look like that's still there, but there's something similar for €30. I assume VAT is to be added to those prices?

    Their upload is shit, their download is good. But it will probably be enough for a plex server.

    Quantify 'shit'? I'm regularly uploading content to mine, so if it's genuinely appalling it'll be an issue, but 'shit relative to upload' is less of an issue.

  • If you're going through a list of hosts with a bad reputation, why not add https://contabo.com/?show=vps to that list?

    On a more serious note, hetzner.

    Upload on server = download on client.

    So while their download is good (=you can upload stuff TO it fast), their upload is quite low, so your streaming might be impaired.

    Maybe run it for an extra friend that is willing to chip in? migrating it for £7 does not sound like fun.

    Can't take money for it, might have to shut the fucker down within a couple of months if the latest bit of brutal UK legislation gets passed.

    Migration's not exactly taxing though, if I can hit my price point, I'm actually saving about £12/month on current cost.

    I'm keeping an eye on things, but if there's any hint that they're going to start using this against anyone other than those profiting from piracy, then I'll just start running something of a home server for me only. Not worth the gamble.
