Discussion continued from VirtualizedHosting2016

The coop decided to switch to DigitalOcean in February 2018 and the coop was fully migrated to virtual hosting between April and December 2018.

1. Current Requirements

Our baseline requirements based on current usage:

Our current cost per month at Peer1 is $680.

We also have a $10 linode (outpost) in the UK for offsite dns and secondary kerberos and afs database servers which will remain part of the infrastructure.

We also need to be able to load custom kernel modules for openafs. Custom kernel support in general is optional but being able to use the distribution kernel is preferred.

2. Proposals

2.1. auro.io

Pending Update

2.2. Linode

draft, needs refinement

block storage is $.10/G per month, we are using ~400G including dead volumes now so could start with 600G to avoid downtime for resizing volumes (or annoyance of vicepa, vicepb...)

80 + 5 + 40 + 40 + 20 + 60 + 10 = $255

outpost is $10 per month, could downgrade to $5 per month as well

The SSD block storage in NJ is at capacity as of 2017-01-25; it's currently only available in CA on hard drives, and still in beta. (Linode forum thread) Could put the AFS server on a larger instance, e.g. Linode 48 (0.75 TB) for $180 more, or use multiple file server instances.

The backup service is roughly $.10/GB/month.

Discounts for prepayment are available: 10% for one year; 15% for two years (per instance, prorated refund if cancelled)

Custom kernels supported

2.3. DigitalOcean


Total: 80 + 5 + 40 + 40 + 20 + 60 + 10 = $255

Custom kernels?

2.4. IBM Cloud/SoftLayer

Total: $696

2.5. Google Cloud Platform

Total: $382

2.6. Other VPS providers?
