Sponsoring server and network

Postby BlueT » Sun Jul 16, 2017 4:31 pm

Hello Yunit gurus,
I'm BlueT, a Ubuntu Convergence fan, also Ubuntu-TW founder and OSSPlanet [1] founder.
It's really nice to see Yunit growing!

I saw the FAQ mentioned about sponsors.
As I'm running OSSPlanet, I'd be more than willing to sponsor all the servers and network bandwidth you and ubports need in our project.
If you don't mind to host services here, maybe we can discuss about what resources/specs you might need :)

BTW, do you have rsync mirror source? I can start syncing archive packages right away for Asian users.


Best wishes,
BlueT.

Hi BlueT and thanks for your offer!

Actually one of our next steps is to setup a CI infrastructure and obviously we will need hosting for it. However we still don't know the requirements for such infrastructure but in general we plan to have it working in containers so that it can be easily scaled. Stephen Webb (Bregma) is doing some experiments with that so maybe he could provide more details.

Regarding the rest of our infrastructure (sites, forums, etc), we need also to move it somewhere else as it is currently running in my personal server. The harware requirements should be something exotic and almost any VPS plan should be ok for that. The exception is the bandwidth which is rather high for the deb repos (archive.yunit.io). For example in June (when we had debian packages only) it used about 15GB and in July (with both debian and ubuntu packages) it has already used 28GB.

Could you provide us more details about OSSPlanet? Do you have other projects hosted?

Hi @jsalatas , thanks for your reply. :)

We LOVE high bandwidth traffic!

I can provide you all those resources within few days once you fill up the hosting application form and confirmed for resources.
All resources can be upgraded as needed, or let me know what kind of resource you need.
BTW, we provide Unlimited outbound network bandwidth on our 100Gbps backbone. You only need to make sure that your contents are not illegal things. :p

My suggestion:

For CI:
It's CPU intensive job, I can provide you a VPS with 4 core CPU + 4G memory + 100G disk.
Will you use the CI as your build server for package releasing?

For web services (site, forum, etc):
A VPS with 1 core CPU + 1G memory + 40G disk.

For main archive server:
Host on mirror.ossplanet.net (a.k.a ftp.ubuntu-tw.org / ftp.ubuntu-tw.net).
We have HTTP/HTTPS, ftp, rsync.
Logically unlimited disk space for package archive. (But of course don't put junks hahaha)
The basic plan is at mirror.ossplanet.net/yunit. Can be discussed.


For info relate to OSSPlanet:
There are some info on our landing page http://ossplanet.net and github https://github.com/OSSPlanet/OSSPlanet
Yes we're providing VPS hosting for some Linux distros, communites, conferences, oss projects, and even CDN services.
Also we're one of the top mirror sites in Taiwan, 10T of archive serving right now. If you know something worth to mirror, let me know. :-)
We have online support channel on Telegram if you need https://telegram.me/ossplanet

Not sure what kind of information you would like to know, so just let me know what you think. :-)


Best wishes,
BlueT

Nice!

Please give me some time, maybe a couple of weeks or something like that (as I'm occupied with some other tasks for now) and I'll come back to you. I guess I'll have many questions to ask :)

Hahaha no problem.

As for now no important infrastructure changes can be made, maybe I can start building the archive mirror for you? So you'll relax from the bandwidth issue.

If you can make a rsync daemon runing, I can rsync from you for better performance.
If not, I can still fetch with http or ftp, but might not be that accure.
Sync can be done 4 or 6 times a day, and once done, you can redirect your users to fetch packages from here.

I can also help on setting up the rsync daemon on current archive.yunit.io server for you if you like. :-)

Sorry I'm not in hurry but just can't sit and wait. Hahaha.
