I have the plan of moving my #peertube instance in my home when the fiber company manage to make it in a few months...
I would buy a second hand computer and the largest hard-drive I can get, plug all that together and whoop, we get a huge PT instance there.
I think I can finance that by #crowdfunding.
E.g, would you provide some € or $ or any other monetary units to help me do that ? Do you have advices on the matter ?
Better use SSDs (even if you would get more space on hdd).
I know if your instance are small you propably won't run into problems but with many user the hdd could become a bottleneck (for example if several users upload stuff on the same time or if transcoding is enabled).
I switched because of the mentioned reasons from strato to hetzner with my PT instance.
