It seems that Wasabi is cheap, but unreliable. 🤔

@thomas True. I recently switched with great effort to their Frankfurt eu-central-1 endpoint, which is more reliable than the us-east & us-west. Even Cloudfront has faster access times to the s3 endpoint which i can only assume means that the us endpoints are heavily overloaded.

Als jemand, die nicht so genau weiß, was das ist... Ein Hoster?

@Cedara das ist ein S3-kompatibler Storage Hoster. Der bietet dir für wenig Geld sehr viel Speicher, den du beliebig nutzen kannst. Einige Mastodon-Betreiber nutzen den gerne, um die Uploads dort abzulegen.

@thomas You're right,they're really very unreliable.Maybe they didn't expect dozens of Mastodon instances using their service 😆 I'm currently hosting my media on my own server but as I was interested in this topic,I searched for cheap alternatives some weeks ago.Maybe this one is useful for you: backblaze.com/b2/cloud-storage Storage is even cheaper there but you pay some money for download traffic.Another solution dedicated to Mastodon instances is jortage.com which is run by some Mastodon instance admins with pricing on a pay what you want base.
