I am considering migrating mastodon.social's media storage from Wasabi to Exoscale. If anyone has any experience with them, positive or negative, let me know. Thank you!
@quad Please tell me more about the pricing methods. Their listed object storage prices per GB seemed on par with DigitalOcean Spaces.
@quad That is an odd and unusual billing system. I guess it's like "traffic is free unless it is impacting our other customers" which kind of makes sense.
@Gargron I'm curious: Why the change? Wasabi is way cheaper with $6 / TB / month and no egress charges, isn't it? Or do you prefer a european company?
@dermalikmann Wasabi has a severe uptime problem
@Gargron Oh, ok. Did not experienced that yet. Do you have your stroage in one of the us locations or in eu-central-1? I don't want to migrate again 😅
@dermalikmann I started using them when their only region was us-east-1. Their other locations are less crowded so not experiencing as many outages.
@Gargron unrelated to the actual storage (unless you think something like Hetzner is an option), does mastodon have a clear migration strategy for things like this? Did you plan it in advance, e.g. had it in mind with design or did you just have to work along with it?
@zladuric I'm not sure what to say. Transferring objects to/from/between S3 buckets is not a Mastodon-specific task. Such a migration happens on a layer below Mastodon, devops.
@Gargron but how do you update references to them? just point the subdomain or something?
@Gargron if you do can you write up a migration guide for medium/large deployments. It was a pain going from AWS to Wasabi in the first place.
@Gargron I have some promo codes from a conference two years ago for 40 EUR worth of exoscale credits.. maybe not much but better than nothing. IDK if you're going for exoscale but if you do tell me - I don't need those :)
