Affordable alternative to Linode.
I am using linode to serve my web application. The application serves, what I consider big data using ~ 30GB for our model US State and we serve a few hundred clients each day.
We are unable to expand with linode.
Linode is very quickly becoming completely unaffordable and I would like to learn about hosting alternatives. How do you host your big data?
- Buy my own server?
- Lease a dedicated server?
- Use a third party such as AWS?
As a hypothetical lets say, I would like to add data from every US state so 30GB * 50
What factors should I consider and what could I expect to pay using your preferred method?
