You have to break down what you’re trying to protect against.
Are you concerned that said global companies would steal your code? That
seems very unlikely. Have you ever heard of a case where this has happened?
Are you concerned that your code and/or data could be stored in
jurisdictions that don’t have strong privacy laws, like the United States?

strong data protection laws. Scaleway <www.scaleway.com/> or
Hetzner <www.hetzner.com/> may be better for you.
Are you concerned about isolation between virtual machines? With the
Spectre and Meltdown vulnarabilities, there is a non-theoretical risk but I
think the risks are minimal. If you are really concerned about that, get a
dedicated server instead of a VPS. Linux already has patches for both
Spectre and Meltdown and as long as the kernel has been updated, you should
be fine with a VPS, though performance does take a hit. Unless you’re
operating something like Netflix, the performance hit won’t make much
difference for you. Modern hardware is so powerful that you can just throw
a bit more money at it if you need to compensate for the loss of
performance caused by those patches.
Are you concerned about security in general? If you don’t have deep
