    Nativelly - not, I use less known alternative. But that is not the question.

    Still looking for lowcost solution. May be even not first class datacenter

    No; needs a USB OTG > Eth adapter.

    Perhaps a tower of them like this?

    Else, colocate at home using a power bank & 4G LTE for redundant power & network.

    What's your budget for this? We can possibly put it in our racks in Sofia. However not entirely sure if it would be worth it for you, considering how cheap VPS have become lately.

  • AlexBarakov said: considering how cheap VPS have become lately.

    Well the idea is it's a dedicated server that could conceivably have special hardware connected.

    OP if you just want a dedicated ARM server, try a Scaleway C1 at 3 euro/mo. They are often out of stock these days but if you keep trying you can get one.

    You are absolutely right. Looking for a very cheap place with electricity to host it.

    How muich would you charge for a standard rpi model b? I have it in a case and all

  • https://raspberry-hosting.com/en ?

    No idea where they host, what they exactly do or whatever, but they do seem to colo rasperries.

  • AlexBarakovAlexBarakov Member, Provider

    @hzr - Honestly, no pricing set, neither I have colo'd such boards before, will have to check if it needs special cooling and etc. . Offer something reasonable and we will most likely take it.

    You can get a full blown VPS for that

    As a side note, lowend.tech is available for $3.99 (first year only) at namesilo

    I've left LET since February 2019, account made inactive on request.

    Dont cheat me. I've bought .tech at namecheap 1.09$/year. You think 1eur/m is too much for such colo?

    What are you hashtags?

  • Yeah, you'd just have to find a place that would be willing to colocate the RPI itself and price that accordingly, most places charge around $60 per 1U rack regardless of what it is, plus with VPSs becoming more cheaper for more power it may not be worth it depending on what the use case is. I'm sure however there are some providers out there who would be able to get a good deal on RPI colocation, someone on these forums got their laptop colocated in a datacenter not too long ago so nothing is impossible...

    On a side note providers such as SoYouStart are starting to offer ARM servers at decent prices

    On one side, it will "cost" something to host your device (not in electricity, rather in allotting some bandwidth for this thing); OTOH you can get better "devices" for the same price. There was a laptop colo thread no more than one month ago and the price settled @ 25 €

  • The Pi, I can understand, since I'm tempted to try to get someone to host my Arduino Mega- just 'cuz. Why the fuck would you want an A9?

    Not for less than 25 EUR :)

    If your home connection is not good enough for this, perhaps a network-admin/friend might be able to help out. Colocating a $5 SBC is just not worthwhile for a provider at $1/mo.

    There's still the issue of the pi0 not having any ethernet... usb dongles seems like a painful way to go about it. What about a bunch of them plugged into a usb hub?

    Radi, where is your house?

    @willie Near Vidin, Bulgaria (You can google it on Maps :) )

    I'll see to getting some network switch setup properly. It'd be great fun to make such local network. :P

  • Will you also colo Arduinos, @Radi?

  • williewillie Member
    edited February 2017

    Fwiw the pi0 needs USB power and a microsd card. It's not just buy a $5 card and you're on the air. Bigger cards like the Odroid C2 start sounding more attractive. Or maybe use the cheap cards with wifi (still need power) if they don't interfere with each other too much.

    #lexit spread the word.

  • If you can get it connected in USB OTG mode I have one also which I would consider colocating. Currently I have it working like this and I think it's better than dealing with USB Ethernet dongles. One USB cable and an SD card is all you need for this setup.

  • We will host it free.

  • Radi said: 3 eur per month

    It would be better 2eur. It seems there are a lot of customers here). Anyway sent private message. @Radi could you start new thread at LET with support issues?

    Also interested in @northhosts proposition, PMed too.

    Anyone else can/wish to host? Need more locations.
