@tracyspacy @verretor I run everything on my own hardware. Servers are colocated in a secure data center.

@melik @tracyspacy @verretor Mel, what are the specs on your hardware and how many active users do you have right now? I have a bare metal server being provisioned now to host a Mastodon instance. Just want to make sure it is right sized to start. Been reading on scale out. Will require DC to carve out a VLAN.


@Clashicly @tracyspacy @verretor

Instead of installing it on a bare metal - set up Proxmox which you can then use to spin up containers or VMs. It's a great Linux distribution for virtualization.

Mine is 8 cores + 16GiB RAM for now, I can scale up later if needed.
