Hey @wogan - Thanks for making that mastodon bring-up doc and video! That's great work.

I've got an instance for adventure parked at heroku right now (powered off at the moment as I wasn't sure where I wanted to host it) - I was thinking of putting it on Digital Ocean. It seems you've got the install as an "all-in-one" setup - is there any benefit to putting the DB on its own VPS?

@Wildbill Thanks! Glad you found it useful :)

In terms of Mastodon, I don't think there's a big benefit to having a dedicated DB instance. Reads/writes seem to run mainly via Sidekiq, and pgsql itself doesn't use that much memory - 85mb real on my single-user instance.
