If your goal is to run BlueStacks on a VPS you are on the right place. By the end of this article, you will have your emulator and VPS up and running.
So let’s get started!
1. Choose perfect VPS for BlueStacks
In our offer we have perfect Windows KVM VPS machines for your needs that will literally blow your mind.
But do note, all this is very much resource heavy.
We suggest you to go with Windows Business plan, since these resources are going to significantly improve your experience. Try it risk free, we have 7 days money back guarantee policy!
While 3GB of RAM($22 plan) can work too, it will be too slow to enjoy the experience. Unfortunately that is how it is with Windows Servers, when combined with desktop environment, RDP and emulated environment, a lot of resources are required for everything to run smoothly.
Just BlueStacks it self requires 4GB of RAM for normal functioning!
