Suggested VPS for Volumes

Can anyone recommend a VPS to use as a Volume? Does the ram, cores, etc., matter? Does it need to be a HD, SSD, etc.? And Ubuntu? Or something else?

@scooke in my understanding, if it is just storage, the RAM and CPU don't need to be high, and access speed to drive is more important, so SSD or NVMe is best.
The challenge is that most VPS providers tend to scale all 3 up, even when you don't need to.
Maybe you can get a base level VPS with base RAM and CPU with not much storage and then add storage to the base model. I think Hetzner and Netcup do this. Maybe others.

Yeah you don't need a proper VPS at all just storage like eg Hetzner Storage Box
That's what I use.

Thank you for the replies. Let's say I have an older Open VZ 6 storage server over at time4vps, and I will connect to it using the SSHSF mount type in Cloudron. There is a scary sounding line underneath that pull-down menu:
Cloudron will configure the server to automatically mount this volume
Which server is getting automatically configured? My Cloudron, or, the remote server? And what does "configure" mean? If it refers to the remote server, will it get wiped or erased or something? I can't imagine so seeing as it is just SSH, but it sounds ominous. Any ideas?
EDIT: I think all it configures are the entries of /etc/fstab on the remote server... right?
@scooke I believe it is only the cloudron that is configured to auto-mount the remote storage server
@scooke It will only configure fstab (systemd mounts actually) on Cloudron and not on the remote server.
Maybe we should change that text a bit. How about
This server will be configured to automatically mount this volume?
