Switch Wikimedia DC to alternative hosting
Closed, ResolvedPublic


We currently pay $60/month for a fixed-size virtual server on Linode. Now even Linode has "cloud" hosting options that are much cheaper; we can also consider DigitalOcean, which only charges for what you use. We're a low traffic website and don't need a lot and could stand to save a lot of money.

@Legoktm: I have added T89079 as a blocker to this task. Let me know once you are done with server updates so I can contact Linode customer support about switching to a different plan.

@Legoktm I take it with the last blocker addressed I can proceed with this?

@jeremyb I am told you were asked about Wikimedia DC's second Linode VM during WikiConference USA and you did not know. I think the purpose of it was to provide load balancing during Wiki Loves Monuments two years ago. If I sent you some screenshots of our Linode control panel would that help you figure it out?
