Over the last year we've moved at light speed. Cyberia Computer Club is now an entity. A formal nonprofit organization with a democratic structure.

We organized and bought a server. We crowdfunded, and spent countless nights testing different configurations. We strived to make the service very simple, and very maintainable. We're very proud of what we're announcing today. We think it's a very unique service.

Capsul is a service that provides people with compute in the form of virtual machines. All machines run on very fast solid state storage, and have direct T3 network access on a shared link. We do not collect user data (besides your email address), and discard as many logs as we feasibly can. Every VM is automatically backed up A more official privacy policy and TOS are coming soon.

To get you excited, here's a list of initially supported operating systems:

operating system supported ———————— ————- alpine yes ubuntu18 yes debian10 yes centos7 yes centos8 yes OpenBSD 6.6 planned GuixSD 1.0.1 planned Windows no, never AIX whyyyy

Our prices start at ~$5.99 a month:

type yearly cost cpus memory ssd ——— —————– —— ——— —— f1-s $70 1 512M 10G f1-m $120 1 1024M 25G f1-l $240 1 2048M 55G f1-x $480 2 4096M 80G f1-xx $960 4 8096M 160G f1-xxx $1920 8 16G 320G

Capsul is very easy to use – no signup or registration is necessary. Simply send an email to with your requirements, and you'll have VMs that you can ssh into within a day or so.

Capsul machines are currently paid for on a yearly basis, and we'll make every effort to remind you of payment before your year expires. Capsul is very price-similar to services like Vultr or Digital Ocean.

What sets Capsul apart?

Simply: our organization and our morality.

Cyberia Computer Club values privacy, simplicity, transparency, accessibility, and inclusion. We have no shareholders, investors, or loaners, therefore every change we make is directly beneficial to you. We actually care about your experience, and it will only get better with time – never worse.

We have a lot more coming for Capsul. The next planned features include: – private networking – openbsd support – monthly payments – instant provisioning and decoms – ipv6 support (with a reduced price instance type) – a storage service (for those who want pictures)

That's all for now! Send us an email and get started with Capsul today! :)
