I am thinking on running a CHR on VPS, mostly for vpn connections for customers who do not have public IP and want to access their resources. It maybe run as dude server as well.
But it is not easy to find a reliable VPS service who can offer full virtualization in order to run CHR as I found out.

Any of you has managed to run CHR on VPS? If so, it would be appreciated if you can share your experiences with the rest of us to make it easier finding the right service.

Thank you

Hetzner was suggested to me by MT twitter account.
I have since decided to use AWS and that has worked very well.

Which option have you picked up there? Which is the most economical one for CHR?

As It's just for private use (holding several VPN tunnels with low traffic + dude) the smallest one for 2.79€/month is more than enough.

Are you using Linux as a template with virtualbox? Can virtualbox run at 64 bit?

I started with debian machine and then just overwrote system disk with ROS image.

They issue coupons worth 10€ so you can try yourself before purchasing.

Thank you guys

I managed to do it with Aruba, but I would guess it can be done with any other VPS provider.
I installed first Debian and then flashed it following this tutorial:
https://medium.com/@kvaps/easy-way-for- ... 1cf7302b85
On that tutorial, substitute the "vda" with "sda" in this line: dd if=chr-6.39.3.img of=/dev/vda bs=4M oflag=sync

Right now I do not have enough time to write in detail what I did, but I will post later steps taken. I am going to do more tests, resetting and reinstalling more than once. One should take note of IP address, netmask and gateway assigned by provider in order to set that up to CHR once it will boot into it.

That's exactly how I did it.
And from what I've read, yes, any VPS running on VMware/KVM should be fine.
