Review: 10Gbps 22€/y "MiniKVM".

So I saw this today: https://hostballs.com/t/minikvm-high-quality-16-a-year-vps-lowest-price-in-the-market/3905

1x Intel Xeon Silver 4214 vCPU
1536 MB ECC Memory
15 GB NVMe SSD Disk Space
/80 IPv6 Subnet
1 x IPv4 address
Free DDoS Protection
1 TB Monthly Bandwidth
10 GBps down – 2 GBps up
Frankfurt DC


Made a few benchmarks after buying it..

this being said, I havent used the support yet and have no great hopes for it at this price range.

The Disk speed seems to be weird, another YABS gives low results while bench.sh gives solid speeds. I re-tested this and it seems to be consistent.

The ip managent is pretty nice though.





Minus points for not being able to purchase more than 1TB bandwidth...

Overall looks pretty nice cause of 10Gbps (cheap enough) yearly OVH VPS with an IP Management.

I'll write about long term experiences later on.
