#1657 closed volunteer task (fixed)

Order new live server

Reported by: planetcruiser Owned by: planetcruiser
Priority: critical Milestone: 0.8
Component: ServerSetup Keywords:
Cc: globetrotter_tt

Description (last modified by planetcruiser)

Issue:

  • Deer is outdated, slow and too expensive
  • In some meeting we decided to order a new server at Hetzner, because most active volunteers have good experience with this provider, and also it's powered by renewable energy
  • This has been long delayed (at least 6 months), but now it's time to do it

Solution:

  1. DONE: Identify paper admin volunteer, preferably in Germany -> matthias
  2. DONE: Order new server at Hetzner -> model EX4
  3. IN PROGRESS: Set up base system -> see #1664 and #1665

Urgency:

  • Pretty urgent, because deer is potentially vulnerable because of broken update system, but please wait for "go" by meinhard before ordering

gl0bi: could you look into part 1 of the solution ("Identify paper admin volunteer, preferably in Germany"). it shouldn't be much work, would you have time for it and are you legally entitled to sign contracts?
