Virtual Servers (Storage VPS)

Storage VPS servers are kernel-based virtual machines (KVM) that are optimized for storage and bandwidth capacity.

What is a Storage VPS Server?

More specifically, Storage virtual private server (VPS) is a kernel-based virtual machine (KVM) that shares hardware and network resources with other Storage VPS servers, just like a standard virtual machine of most of the cloud providers out there.

More exclusively, Storage VPS servers have enhanced storage and bandwidth capacity to accommodate use cases that require vast disk space, intense data transfer and few compute resources. Although Storage VPS servers have HDD storage, there is an SSD caching layer on top of that speeds up data read operations.

How can I get Storage VPS servers?

Storage VPS Servers are deployed by a fully automated provisioning system that runs a multi-step server preparation process to give you a clean and safe server each time on-demand. You get Storage VPS servers deployed in 2 to 10 minutes.

Storage VPS servers are billed on an hourly or fixed-term basis, with monthly, quarterly, semi-annual and annual billing cycles available. You may order Storage VPS servers through your Client Portal or automate provisioning via Cherry Servers API.

What are available Storage VPS server plans?

There are 4 Storage VPS plans available in EU-Nord-1 region:

  • Storage VPS 2;
  • Storage VPS 4;
  • Storage VPS 6;
  • Storage VPS 8.

Storage VPS plans have from 10 to 35TB of free traffic package included by default, according to our Bandwidth Plans, and you pay only €0.5 / TB / month for any extra traffic.

What operating systems are available?

We support the following operating systems for Cloud VPS servers at the moment:

  • Ubuntu - versions 18.04 and 20.04;
  • CentOS - version 7;
  • Debian - versions 9, 10, 11;
  • AlmaLinux - version 8;
  • RockyLinux - version 8;
  • OpenSUSE - version Leap 15.

Additional IP Addresses

Instead of a standard Management IP Cloud VPS is assigned with a Floating IP as the primary public IP address of the server. Due to this reason Cloud VPS servers do not have gateway, nor netmask configuration.  In addition to the primary IP address you may add a number of additional IP addresses to your Cloud VPS server:

  • Floating IP. A public IPv4 address that can be instantly moved from one server to another within the same region.
  • DDoS Protected Floating IP. A floating IP address that has an additional layer of DDOS scrubbing protection applied in real-time.


Private VLAN Subnet

Private VLAN Subnet is a virtual local area network (VLAN) interface that groups servers within a Team to enable private interactions, as if the servers were attached to the same wire.

Out-of-band Management Console

Out-of-band management (OOBM) Console is a remote server management technology that uses the Remote Frame Buffer protocol (RFB) to remotely control another computer through a Virtual Network Computing (VNC) graphical desktop-sharing system.

Server Tags

Server tagging is a way to mark your cloud infrastructure resources in any organizational pattern of your choice, which helps you organize, control and monitor your cloud resources better.

Cloud-init Service

Cloud-init is a service that allows you fetch user data when provisioning new servers via API.

Present Limitations

Storage VPS servers share a pool of HDD storage, which is limited to 3000 IOPS.
