I am looking for a VPS which has a large big storage.
I want to setup Nextcloud onto that VPS and store all my data onto the big storage (ca 500 GB).
Who can tell me where I can find a provider who has such a service. My budget is max. € 20.00/month.
At this moment I have Dropbox Plus. With Dropbox Plus I can login with only 1 name…
Netcup has root servers where you can choose between a SSD or a SAS hard-drive. The latter offers a lot of (slower) storage, see:
(For some reason the netcup.eu English site doesn’t offer the 12 months order rebate, so I am linking the German site).
If you click on “storage” you can even get a 1.5 TB option for your budget and that system should be just fast enough if you only plan to have a few users.
They have images with Nextcloud pre-configured.
(I am not affiliated, but the offer seems good, here is a German review I found while googling: http://www.webhosterwissen.de/vserver/netcup/ ).
Transip has a Big Storage option you can add to your VPS.
If you take their cheapest VPS, you pay € 10/month, and you can add 2TB of Big Storage to it for € 10/month.
So a total of € 20 per month for 2TB.
It’s a Dutch company with data center in Amsterdam. They offer excellent and friendly customer support.
You can also easily add extra RAM, CPU, Storage afterwards if you decide you want a bit more.
Another solution could be to rend a cheap VPS around 10€, with a few cores and a few gigabytes of RAM. Then rent Dropbox 1TB for ~8€/month with a one year subscription. Then use Dropbox as external storage within Nextcloud. If you are concern about Dropbox just encrypt the external storage, so Dropbox will never see your real data.
Thank you. That offer is nice.
Is it possible to take a VPS 200 G8 only for the setup of Nextcloud and a Storage Server S 1000 G7 to store the data of the VPS?

You might be able to mount it somehow as an external storage, but I don’t think that will be a very satisfactory solution. You can however order directly additional storage for your VPS, see:
I ordered the smallest root server from them a few days ago, and so far it seems working really well. Didn’t do any heavy tasks on it yet though.
