Hourly billing VPS with dedicated CPU Core

Hello, I'm looking for a cloud VPS provider which over instances with a dedicated CPU core. Pricing shouldn't be more than $0.03 per hour and there should be an API.

Thanks.

    Not an easy request but hetzner comes close: https://www.hetzner.com/cloud 8gb, 2vcpu, 0.03 euro/hour rather than 0.03 usd.

    Alternatively, if you can live with slow cores, try a scaleway bare metal server (ARM or Atom), https://www.scaleway.com/pricing/ (scroll down). Those are actually pretty cheap, considering.

    thank you. The server should have a high core clock because i want to use it for a CS:GO Gameserver

    Our c.1 instances come with 5 GB RAM, 1 vCPU (dedicated), and 100 GB SSD storage @ $0.0278 / hour (USD).

    https://lunanode.com/pricing (check compute-optimized)

    Clock speed may be as low as 2.60GHz (Xeon E5-2670) but if you open ticket we should be able to move you to 3.00GHz (Xeon E5-2690 v2).

    If you're interested, PM me your e-mail address after signing up an account and I can give you $10 free credit to get started.

    .

    Edit: but yeah for CS:GO you might want to consider dedicated server too like @willie said, e.g. https://www.soyoustart.com/us/essential-servers/ starts at only double your requested price with Xeon E3-1225v2.

    Or is there a reason you prefer a cloud service?

  • You need 3.4Ghz+ core. You need VPS with single core(dedicated) 2+Gb Ram and minimum 30GB hdd space and 1TB bandwidth. So, increase your budget.

  • Thank you very much for your detailed answers. A dedicated server is out of the question for me as I only need it for a few hours a month. I forgot to mention in my start post that the cloud server should located in Germany. I can raise my limit to $0.05 per hour.

    Two kind of consumers on LET.

    One with realistic budget with realistic expectations. (Rare)

    Another with a goal of seeking the promised land without a clue.

    Hetzner, DigitalOcean, vultr, first-root, netcup, all fit the bill?

    I know for https://lunanode.com for example you can shelve the VM if you're not using it and you wouldn't have to pay the $20/month. You would just pay for the IP I think (which is $1/month, I think assuming you wanted to keep a static IP for people to connect to, see if you can cancel it) and like $0.05 per month for your data, which would be basically nothing if you just have the executable on it for the CS:GO server.

    https://wiki.lunanode.com/index.php/Shelving

    So your base price would be $1/month for the IP and storage space (nominal amount). And like $0.20 every time you turn it on for one night, assuming the c.1 (one dedicated core) is enough. It'd be pretty much one-click on / off once you set up your VM once with the right server settings.

    I don't know if Digital Ocean or others allow "shelving" a VM as easily. If not, get a full server for cheap: https://incero.com/autoservers.

    DigitalOcean clock speed is only 2.6GHz -- https://blog.digitalocean.com/introducing-high-cpu-droplets/

    Vultr is as low as 2.4GHz -- https://discuss.vultr.com/discussion/945/which-cpus-are-used

    Hetzner 2.1GHz -- http://www.bbs.bz/discussion/comment/2859092/#Comment_2859092

    $0.05/hour = $36/mo seems pretty reasonable but I can't think of any providers that fit the bill in Germany. AWS has high frequency instances in Frankfurt, but they start at $0.1/hour. If you use spot instances it could be much cheaper ($0.03/hour, plus disk/network cost which should be low), but there is a small chance your instance would be terminated at any time.

    Edit: yeah best option I can see is the c5.large spot instance on AWS (Intel Xeon Platinum @ 3.0+ GHz, turbo boost to 3.5GHz, instance has two cores). It's $0.03/hour with small probability of being terminated if they run out of capacity. Disk is $0.1/GB/mo, outgoing bandwidth is $0.09/GB.

    If you repeatedly run into termination issues you can use on-demand instance at $0.1/hour.

    all base blocks, really need to look at specific cpu model to know their turbo boost cpu frequency profiles under load as well :)

    You only need it a few hours a month and you're worrying about the difference between 3 cents an hour and 5 cents an hour? Sheesh. Try OVH Public Cloud C2 cpu instances (3.1 ghz), that start at 11 cents/hour:

    https://www.ovh.com/world/public-cloud/instances/prices/

    Or better yet, Vultr bare metal E3-1270v6 at 18 cents/hour: https://www.vultr.com/pricing/baremetal/
