XenVZ – £2.80 Xen or OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , , Date/Time: March 10, 2009 @ 12:33 pm, by LowEndAdmin

XenVZ Thanks to cryptw for posting this in the forums. XenVZ is offering this special on WHT for £2.80/month with a coupon code:

  • 64MB memory
  • 5GB storage
  • 20GB/month data transfer
  • Xen or OpenVZ + HyperVM

It even comes with a Xen image that allows you to run OpenVZ inside your Xen VPS. Running multiple VE inside 64MB Xen would be a challenge though. Servers are in UK.

The original owner of LowEndBox known as "LowEndAdmin" or "LEA" for short founded LowEndBox in 2008 and created the concept of hosting applications on low resource "Low End Boxes". After creating the roots of the community that we know today, "LEA" stepped aside and allowed others to carry the torch forward.

  1. Hi!

    Thanks for the advert. Just wanting to say with regards to the 64mb challenge, someone actually asked us last night what the bare minimum amount of RAM required to run OpenVZ inside our Xen VPS was.

    I created one of these £2.80 VPS and successfully booted a CentOS 5.2 OpenVZ VE inside it, both responding well to SSH! 64MB host nodes work, though I doubt anything else will run :)

  2. Thanks Sean. Nice proof of concept though.
