UltraVPS.eu Black Friday 2019 SAS Special

UltraVPS is an established hosting company operating since 1999 and they are now offering an UltraVPS.eu Black Friday 2019 offer that is almost impossible to refuse. The specs of this offer is as follows:

  • Intel Xeon E5-2690v2 host node
  • 2 vCPU
  • 4GB RAM
  • 100GB Disk
  • HDD Disk Type (SAS)
  • 5TB Monthly Bandwidth
  • 10 Gbps Port
  • $3.1 per month (quarterly price without VAT for non-EU customers; otherwise €3.33 per month)
  • KVM Virtualization
  • Location: Germany or Netherlands

The results of the LEBRE scoring methodology (using the lower $3.10 amount) is as follows:

In terms of getting the best bang for every dollar, it’s a bloodbath; this UltraVPS offer beat REBOX1 in most of the LEBRE measures by a wide margin. The only weakness is the disk type as it is using HDD as the storage medium, BUT one has to be aware this is not the usual SCSI HDD. This UltraVPS.eu offer uses SAS HDD, which is extremely high performance and can offer performance comparable to low end SSDs.

This VPS box gives you decent value in terms of CPU performance, excellent value for number of vCPUs offered, and pretty much blows away REBOX1 in terms of RAM, bandwidth and the storage size offered, and the biggest highlight has to be the 10Gbps port speed that is a rarity in lowend VPS offers. Expect blazing speeds transferring large files, especially on the European continent.

The overall LEBRE score of 281 is our highest yet, offering a value that is almost triple of our already excellent REBOX1. At the half the price of a Starbucks coffee, there is no reason not to buy this box if you are only willing pay much lower than the $7 monthly price cap we set to assess the value of VPS offers using our LEBRE methodology.

TL;DR In terms of value, this box is a champion slayer. If you want one of the best value-for-money boxes this Black Friday, this is probably it.

If you are afraid of missing the UltraVPS.eu Black Friday 2019 SAS Special 1 offer, buy your box like right now (Germany and Netherlands are available options) and support UltraVPS.eu, who is on The Whitelist.
