I eventually need to set up a little server farm for a yet-to-be-built BioMedical Research facility for my:
A fibre connection to the existing building (NSW, Australia) will cost about AU$700 / month which I can’t afford ATM so I thought of starting with something (lower cost to begin with) on an existing service, Linode, who have a Sydney cloud facility. Then it occurred to me that others may be interested in being involved in a project with this post’s title. Then I thought it might be good to set this project up as a DAO (managed as a co-op under NSW law):
Continuing the thought experiment, for about the same amount that it would cost me to get a fibre connection going, I could get the following machine config from Linode:
|RAM||CPU||Storage||Transfer||Network In||Network Out||Price|
|96 GB||20 Cores||1920 GB SSD||20 TB||40 Gbps||10000 Mbps||US$480 / mo|
Could someone guesstimate how many Podman Discourse containers this machine could support?
