   I'll second Scaleway. It's Just Worked for me.

   The other recommendation I've got is a small company called Bitfolk
(http://bitfolk.com). More expensive than many of the larger
operators, but the quality of the support is superb. (Disclaimer: I've
known the owner of the company for many years; I own two Bitfolk VMs
and manage a third).

   Hugo.

But I used the "free" tier, thought I was being careful, and got slapped with $60 in charges from network traffic before I could shut things down. There is no way to tell Amazon "I would rather go offline than pay $x", so a misconfigured cron job or traffic spike (DDoS?) that happens while you're asleep is basically guaranteed to cost you.
