Not Covered, Move to next Meeting

  • Setting aside money for Cloud Servers, How much can we afford, what providers.
    • I think we should consider a couple since each has strengths (e.g. some allow stop start, many allow create/drop instead of buying a specific server, some provide lots of bandwidth and automated backups but may have smaller size etc, many offer lots of OS, some are limited to just one etc) and maybe not put all our money in one
    • Digital Ocean (Droplet), Linode, Amazon EC, SoftLayer, and other smaller players
  • Committee Guidelines - The board wants to know how we officially make decisions. We've never formalized this.
  • Road ahead?
