Most cases people use a public cloud provider but I would like to have a discussion on hardware implementations , specifically multi node (3+)
I have been using the Lenovo ThinkCentre m715q AMD Ryzen 5 Pro 2400ge with 16+ GB RAM ....
They are great and usually more than enough to get the job done but if needed they actually scale really well...I will further explain but first if you would like to know more about the hardware itself the ServeTheHomeVideo Youtube has recently reviewed these types of units: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bx4_QCX_khU
Apparently they are populate in the r/homelab community if you scroll through the pictures of setups they are very common
Regarding multi-node implementations and their viability using the mentioned type of hardware there is a production instance with 6,000 nodes: 🤯
Chick-fil-a built their own tooling but the concept is validated
So much so there are "hyper converged hardware/software" providers pursuing this avenue: ScaleComputing - https://www.scalecomputing.com/he150
This brings me full circle to the point: 3+ Node Cloudron Deployment (6.0 - Unified Dashboard)
1 - Is anybody else "personally" interested in a deployment like this (hardware + cloudron)
2 - From a Service Provider prospective - Does this incentivize "edge" deployments? Or even co-location over public cloud?
Love to hear everyone's thoughts and takes on the topic & really looking forward to the feature =]
