Anyone play with any of the cheap VPS's coming up on Lowendbox? I see some Boxing day sales coming up that are tempting to try, but they are mostly annual pricing.

For example Sparkvps has the following right now:
  • Create up to 16 VPS’s
  • 16 CPU Cores
  • 16GB’s RAM
  • 400GB SSD Storage
  • 50TB Bandwidth
  • 16 x IPv4
  • Deploy in Dallas/NY/ATL
  • TUN/TAP/PPP Supported
  • Pool Resource Manager
  • OpenVZ
  • $120/yr (USD)
Any thoughts before I waste my money? I understand a lot of these guys are highly oversold.. Beyond that would they work for hosting plexguide?

I have been looking at these as well. The instalation guide says to avoid OpenVZ although you might have some luck but not sure it is worth the risk.

So I have tried one provider so far and I was unable to get docker to install. I did some research and found the following link: Docker on OpenVZ

Per that link, it is indeed an issue with the kernel version that is being used. Although it looks like it is possible to use OpenVZ with an updated kernel, I have yet to find an OpenVZ provider that states they have the kernel that supports Docker.

I am still looking and will post if I find one.

the deal above sounds not to bad. why not just write to the support and ask them?

I have...
Hello,
Yes, you will be able to run Plex on these. Yes, you could set up one large instance if you do not wish to set up multiple.
Feel free to give us a try, and if you are not happy within the first 3 days we will be happy to grant a full refund for you no questions asked!
Regards,
Before I went through the efforts of trying I thought I would ask if anyone has already done it..

Might fire in an order shortly and see how it goes...
