EdgeVirt, a VPS/bare metal provider, is saying goodbye. In a post on a popular web hosting forum, a user reported that they received an email from EdgeVirt saying that all services will be shut down “over the next 14-21 days.” This was posted on the 29th of August, 2023, so if you were an EdgeVirt customer, it’s time to find a reliable alternative for your cloud services.
It’s quite interesting that earlier this year, EdgeVirt expressed their plans of expanding their services, so something unexpected must have happened for them to decide to close down their business. We can only speculate as no public announcement had been made as of this posting. Here is a screenshot from their “Announcements” page:
