Migrating to a smaller spec machine

PP Pirate Praveen Public Seen by 18

Currently we have a hetzner dedicated server with AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core Processor, 64 GB ram and 2x2TB disks in software raid. This costs us around 3000 rupees per month.

I think moving to a smaller server would save costs as we don't really need this big a server.

One option I can suggest is Infomaniak public cloud, which is running on Open Stack. They already sponsor DebConf, fasttrack.debian.net. git.fosscommunity.in and is a good, responsible and employee owned company.

Migrating to a cloud vm makes backups/migration easy, better defense against DDoS attacks, more redundant storage etc.

This migration is now complete https://gitlab.com/piratemovin/diasp.in/-/issues/67 we still have some more items to finish in that checklist though (like assigning a floating ip for reverse DNS setup).

Setup preiodic backups of the server You have until Sun 3 Mar 2024 11:30AM to participate.

What is the team, working group or event you are inviting people to?

We should setup periodic backups of the server, I think weekly snapshots using Infomaniak console may be the simplest option (you will just need to click a few buttons and select correct options).

https://gitlab.com/piratemovin/diasp.in/-/issues/69

Why is this important?

In case something happens to the server (hard disk failure, delete files by mistake etc), we need to be able to restore the service on a new machine.

What are you asking people to do?

We need volunteers to setup backup.
