Great post from @Gargron on scaling the flagship instance: https://medium.com/@Gargron/scaling-mastodon-1becde463090
@ashfurrow Just out of curiosity, do you plan to keep this instance running on Heroku for the foreseeable future? It's interesting to me to see the pros and cons of using a service like Heroku compared to bare metal for something like Mastodon.
@OberstKrueger for now I'm sticking with heroku but in the longer term I think moving away makes sense.
@OberstKrueger I think I've got a plan for what an AWS instance could look like. Will blog about it later.
@OberstKrueger what do you think of this? https://ashfurrow.com/blog/mastodon-hosting-migration-plan/
@ashfurrow I'm really quite late to responding to this now, seeing as how you skipped over AWS and went straight to DO. 😉
