I need to setup an off-site duplicate instance of a critical application that requires many IP addresses (say, between 20 and 30). What options are there? I did a bit of research to find out the maximum allowed number of IP addresses that some providers apply:

  • Amazon EC2: 1 IP
  • Gandi: 4 IP
  • Linode: unlimited (needs custom quote)
  • ServInt: unlimited
  • TurboVPS: unlimited

Are there other choices out there?

Is IPv4 a requirement? – grawity Jan 30 '11 at 13:48

I believe Rackspaces's Cloud offering will as well. Though I left them for Linode which would be my suggestion of the ones I'm familiar with.

This answer gave me the opportunity to better discover Linode and I'm very interested in their service. – Alessandro Feb 13 '11 at 15:39

I don't think have a limit for public IPs, but they will charge £1 per month per IP.

Most providers don't limit in the literal sense. They give you 1 free one and expect you to pay for more. To add onto what Growse said most providers charge 1 USD or Pound per IP per month on the IPv4 front, IPv6 they are a lot less strict and will most likely assign you a /48

You might want to look at Amazon again, they do allow multiple public IP's per instance:

The number of IP addresses that you can assign varies by instance type. Small instances can accommodate up to 8 IP addresses (across 2 elastic network interfaces) whereas High-Memory Quadruple Extra Large and Cluster Computer Eight Extra Large instances can be assigned up to 240 IP addresses (across 8 elastic network interfaces). For more information about IP address and elastic network interface limits, go to Instance Families and Types in the Amazon EC2 User Guide.
