Ask Slashdot: Cloud Service On a Budget?
cloud providers charge dearly for this.
Not necessarily. FranTech's BuyVM will rent you a KVM VM with 500GB of space and 5TB of bandwidth for only $15/month. If you need more, you can step up to their 1TB of space with 10TB of bandwidth plan that costs just $30/month. These plans are listed under Las Vegas - KVM Storage in the order form. It looks like they are out of stock right now (you can quickly check their stock here,) but I think they restock all of their plans on Mondays. BuyVM has a pretty good reputation and I have been enjoying their service for quite a while.
