Once more calling out for help:
A bigger #Mastodon instance wants to move out of Crimefl… ahem, Cloudflare, and is looking for an affordable CDN it can move to. We're talking about half a terabyte of data – and it needs, well, a CDN and HTTPS support at an affordable price (so Amazon is out, if it ever was in); and it should be privacy-friendly and ideally FOSS friendly (the latter two are my additions, but feel right).
Any recommendations? Asking for a friend :wink:
Pls boost if you don't know yourself.
@IzzyOnDroid if you had some engineering resources and can run your own edge locations, I really love Hetzner. But I don't think they have a CDN. OVH (german or french one) should still be covered by strong EU privacy laws - but in any case you'll likely need an edge in US or something so there's that.
@zladuric Uh, CDN starts at 240 EUR/month with OVH? That seems quite heavy for the purpose. But maybe one can ask for a special offer. Collecting it for now, check later when we've got something to compare with 😉
BTW: Yeah, my servers are at Hetzner for several years now. But then, I don't need a CDN for them 😄
@IzzyOnDroid CDN's are hard to do, that's why they're expensive.
With cloudflare you're paying, just not with money.
@zladuric I cannot tell. I meant it when saying "asking for a friend". If it's just about DDOS and SSL Bridge, OVH offers that for EUR 24 a month. That's 10% of a CDN.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
