From their website, their about us section states:

Vultr is strategically located in 16 datacenters around the globe and provides frictionless provisioning of public cloud, storage and single-tenant bare metal.”

Launching a Server

I decided to deploy a server pre-configured with Docker, and just about a minute I had my server up and running with Docker, ready to go.

I’m quite impressed with VULTR and the ease of use. The pricing is really good and like the fact that you can deploy servers with pre-configured software on it.
