Hi folks, I'm looking to collocate a server or VPS with Interactive Brokers and IB Gateway. I'm planning to use it for futures trading - ES and NQ. What would be the best Cloud Services for that?

I use Alibaba Cloud in London ! you will need minimum the " ecs-t5-c1m1-large " Plan for 25 USD/Month

https://www.vpsbenchmarks.com/hosters/alibaba_cloud

they feature a nice Access/UI over the Browser . (no additional software on your desktop for connection)

+ Snapshots are free



Note: If you log-in with the mobile App of IB the account will go offline in the Cloud ! ! ! (not like Tradestation ....)

Few (biases ) comments:
- far from IB gateway in Chicago (cdc1.ibllc.com)
- their prices for Windows boxes are not covering the fees asked by Microsoft monthly licenses. That's quite strange...
- generic hosting providers are good for web and databases, for real time stuff it sucks. Low latency network is not their thing.

the latency from my Alibaba Cloud in London to my Broker in London is 3 ms
from my Alibaba Cloud US East 1 (Virginia) to my Broker (Oanda) in New York is 9 ms
More Locations are coming soon because they are hard competing with Amazon Cloud!

10 Dollar per Month for a Windows 2012R2-Server is enough for running 1 Metatrader 4 but not enough for IB.

we have more then 500 Brokers and more then 500 Companies offering VPS-Server!

I think 400 of them are very unprofessional have for example no idea about DDOS Protection ....

I think Alibaba Cloud /Amazon Cloud is not asking if you are a poor retail trader or a poor hedge fund who can not afford to buy a big Windows Licence .

This is not answering my question: who is the "we" you're mentioning?
