    After reading a lot I came to the conclusion that the best options at the moment (after downgrades in Vultr processors) are Linode and Ramnode.

    I am going to run a few Wordpress sites there and I need at least 35Gb SSD. I don't want to spend more than 20 USD/month, and it has to have a server in Europe.

    I am considering getting a Linode 2Gb 48Gb for 20Gb/month.

    I think I want 2Gb RAM, but maybe 1Gb is enough. The question is, Ramnode OpenVZ is better or worse than Linode KVM?

    The Premium OpenVZ Ramnode are tempting.

    1024MB SVZ 1024 / 512 MB 4 Cores 1 /64 75 GB 3000 GB $10 / mo
    2048MB SVZ
    2048 / 512 MB 4 Cores 1 /64 95 GB 4000 GB $20 / mo

    But the Premium KVM is too expensive.
    2048MB SKVM 2048 MB 4 Cores 1 /64 42 GB 4000 GB $28 / mo

    What do you think?

    Ramnode OpenVZ Premium or Linode 2gb?

    I have experience with many host servers, and for me the best bang for the buck is vpsdime without questions.

    For 7$ you have 4 vCPU's, 30GB of SSD Space and 6Gb of Ram, and believe me, the vps is really good. Because of their TOS, there are no abusers so the server is always very stable.
    You also have from them, the Premium VPS with 1 dedicated CPU, 4Gb of Ram and 60Gb of SSD for 20$.

    If you need a VPS with 4GB ram and below then choose Ramnode KVM Premium.
    It has way faster SSD, CPU and Network.

    That looks really good. I need more SSD but...
    4 CPU, 12GB Memory, 60GB SSD Space, 4TB Traffic Limit, 10Gbit Connection for 14 USD/month lol. It is OpenVZ though.

    The Premium one you mention looks good too.

    But, what about processor speeds? and SSD speed? and the network setup? Could you run some benchmarks for us?

    Just a note, im not saying that vpsdime is better than linode or ramnode, im saying that for the money, is one of the bests.

    They have a really fast support. Normally in 10 or 15 minutes at most, they are replying to your ticket with real solutions.

    I don't have at the moment any premium vps from them, only the normal ones. Also, they will upgrade the servers for better IO performance next week.

    The 3 vps's i have with them are in UK with a 1Gbit link. In the States the link is 10Gbit.

    First their CPU is not ideal or fast enough.
    SSD speed is okay :).

    Like i said, i did not suggested the best available vps out there, i suggested the best bang for the buck in my opinion. We are talking of a vps that costs only 7$ per month, or 14$ if you want more Ram and SSD space and that have an excellent support.

    Curious about their Premium one. Those virtualizations have a pretty slow CPU, but for 7USD are a great deal, no doubt. Specially if you need a lot of RAM.

    Yes, it depends on your site needs and the configuration you set for it.
    One of my sites that i have there, with +- 18,000 requests per hour(5r/s), this is the load average over the last 24 hours:

    I tested Vultr, RamNode, Linode and DigitalOcean. In the end I chose Linode 2Gb. Fastests SSD, good connetion speeds, better kernel by default...
