VM Specialist - Black Friday 2020 - Storage and KVM NVMe offers

VM Specialist is a small UK based firm specialising in custom spec, manged and unmanaged virtual servers. We’re not out to compete on price, but do offer a competitive service with 24/7 support. More information is on our website - which I’m redeveloping currently to better convoy the services offered and to simplify ordering, etc.

These are self/unmanaged and can be managed via our billing panel. noVNC client is available, as well as custom ISO uploading.
We also offer a 99.999% SLA, as well as 24/7 excellent support, and management services if required.

Our offers are at: Order | VM Specialist

There some storage offers, and some US/DE KVM offers (on Clouviders network). All the current listings are yearly prices. If it’s marked as sold/gone then it’s gone. These don’t qualify for free DirectAdmin but it can be added on at a reduced fee.

We’ll be adding some very limited higher spec plans this afternoon - I’ll update the post as that happens :slight_smile:

Samples currently live:

  • 1 core (Intel E-series)/1gb ECC RAM/15gb NVMe/2tb transfer - £22.50/year in New York/Los Angeles
  • 1 core (Intel E5)/1gb ECC RAM/1tb storage/5tb transfer - £37.50/year
  • 2 core (Intel E-series)/2gb ECC RAM/30gb NVMe/2tb transfer - £31.00/year in Frankfurt, DE
  • 4 core (AMD Ryzen 7)/8gb ECC RAM/50gb NVMe/500gb HDD/5tb transfer/FULLY managed, Free DirectAdmin - £25/month

Standard terms apply, but basically

  • No torrenting/anything likely to be classed as copyright infringement.
  • No IRC/other services likely to attract DDoS attacks (we may make exceptions depending on use case).
  • No CPU intensive workloads (crypto, etc).
  • No SPAM

All prices exclude VAT where applicable. Orders are manually approved/checked/etc.

Picked up this storage deal together with the 2 core in Frankfurt, and both are really fast!
