    Hello, I need to find out the best and most cost effective way to set up anywhere from 100 to 1000 vps for a web application I'd like to scale.

    The web app basically just downloads and uploads videos using PHP and Cronjobs (linux server).

    https://www.ovh.com/us/dedicated-servers/enterprise/160mg4.xml
    Intel 2x Xeon E5-2650v3 - 20c/40t - 2.3 GHz/3.0 GHz
    256GB DDR4 ECC 2133 MHz

    Would 1gb ram be sufficient? what about 500mb ram? Right now I'm on a 2gb ram vps with 10gbps port and 2tb per month.. i probably need 2tb PER vps per month

    Who do I talk to to get the best cost effective prices and advice? I need help... budget isn't super big so I'm trying to find a way to successfully execute the project. Thank you.

    The way I would to it is to buy the dedicated server, completely set up a Vm manager like VMware, completely set up a vps so that it is ready to work and just clone the vps a hundred times.

    Even though I don't think this would be the most effective way, it would at least work and be pretty fast.

    Depending on how complex the script is, 500 MB RAM for a Ubuntu Server installment should be enough in my opinion

    What's the most effective way then would you say? Can you point me to a solid dedicated server that's cost effective and has a decent mbps download/upload?

    Like I said, this is how I would do it. I am not an expert at this kind of things, I am just positive that there is a better way.

    Not for your budget, no. See, you say you need 2 tb per Vm per month. Let's say you get a perfect GBit connection that you manage to run full speed all the time. You could transfer around 260 tb of data which means you need at least that. If you want up to a thousand vms you need at least 10 GBit

    Depending on where you need it, you could, besides ovh, also take a look at Hetzner (they offer 10 GBit). Maybe even consider buying lots of individual vms

    For cheap vms, Google "low end vps". You can find decent vms for a couple dollars a year. Yes, couple of dollars per year. They could be enough for you, I would try it out
