On a side note, we’ll also have to start paying the domain ourselves.

With applications currently suspended, I'm not sure that we can request new x86 vms, so its very possible that we need to look into moving to a different host.

We already have capacity with OVH to replace boston in case this happened.

I can indeed - will be done overnight with coordination.

One DC at a time will be replaced. @peer has the access to provision it.

somebody in #fosshost mentioned Oracle cloud which seems to provide pretty decent size aarch (armpere) vms for free (up to 4 vCPUs, unto 200GB storage, up to 24gb ram). Just thought I'd mention it here.

AArch shutdown canceled for now.

It’s looking like this should definitely be done as FH management seems to be falling apart.
