Event Timeline

I just want to set expectations on this as a Cloud VPS. Reading about the project, it seems like it might need significant scale and redundancy? On Cloud VPS, we have a major single point of failure because we use local storage for now (if a VM is on a particular failing hypervisor, the hypervisor is a single point of failure right now). When we need to move VMs, they take downtime as well, as of now.

As long as what is planned here can handle that sort of thing (and maybe redundancy is planned through layout of VMs etc), then this is fine. I just wanted to make sure and check on that because of my perceived visibility of the project or if it should be in a more "production" type environment with more monitoring etc.

@Yarl – feel free to go along with whatever you think will work. Realistically we are not expecting a very heavy load. Just getting the app up and running is the most important thing right now – are you predicting any problems with the VPS setup?

I don't think so. But in the same time I have no dev-ops experience. We will just go with what is available I think.
