Hosting costs – November 2017

In the spirit of continued transparency, and because I haven’t remembered to do this in a while, this is an accounting of Free Radical’s hosting costs for November 2017:

  • The DigitalOcean droplet and persistent block storage (for PostgreSQL) was $22.00.
  • The Amazon Web Services S3 media and backup storage cost $3.59.

The DigitalOcean CPU usage graph runs consistently at about 5%. Memory is always at about 70%, with most of it used by PostgreSQL for caching. Disk usage is at about 0% except during hourly backups. Bandwidth averages about 20Kbps except during those same offsite backups.

In summary, this glorious hot mess costs a total of about $25 per month and has a ridiculous amount of room for future growth.

If you’d like to help support Free Radical, please send $5 in cash to your nearest hungry-looking person and tell them Tek says hi.
