What do you use your VPS's for?

For me, honestly a dedicated server makes no sense for my scale of operation. A VPS was the obvious choice, especially since it's really not that much more expensive than shared hosting - the increased flexibility is well worth the extra few bucks in my opinion. I'm curious though, those of you using a VPS as a test environment, are you using dedicated servers otherwise? What necessitated that jump up?

I use mine for an anti ddos proxy for competitive gaming.

I really only ever use my VPS as test environments these days. I used to host a voice server there for a long while though.

Where are your visitors located?

You can try using CDN InfraStructure, which will accelerate the access to your sites using 19 OVH PoPs around the world(7 in Europe, 10 in North America, and 2 in Asia). It will cache some contents of your sites(based on customizable rules), and will deliver them directly to your visitors instead of sending the request to your server. That way, it speeds up the page loading.

VPS are mostly not that powerful as dedicated servers are . So the use of VPS are limited in terms of resources. Many users buy vps to cut down cost since they cannot afford a dedicated server because of the competitive hosting market. So the use of VPS depends on the user itself as to what he is looking to run.

I configure my own seedboxes for fun. Got 15 GB hard drive, 1 TB bandwidth, 128 MB ram

Some websites, testing environments, other small services such as voice servers.

Although now I've tended to just purchase a Dedicated Server and setup virtualization on it, more control and it generally works out cheaper.

Although strictly not a Datahoarder post I'm interested in learning as to what you do with your VPS's. I've had one for a while now but don't use it for anything other than webhosting.
