1 server for an image hosting service: looking for a location
I’m an owner of FunkyIMG.com – free image hosting service. It's my personal project.
I was glad to be LeaseWeb’s customer for several (>5) years but being indirect customer caused us some problems + LeaseWeb doesn't want to deal with services that can cause abuses.
Now looking for another datacenter.
The problem is that as a free image hosting there are abuse reports to our service.
We are willing to decrease them – so we’ve installed cybertip.ca’s hash check service and EOKM’s filtering: every image is checked twice to ensure there is no child sexual abuse materials. Still there might be reports and we will fight to remove abusive content.
2x Intel Xeon E5-2620v2
4 * 3Tb HDDs
100 Tb @ 1Gbit
And one more option outside Netherlands:
1 Xeon E5-2678 v3 12C/24T (30M Cache, 2.50 GHz)
3x6TB HDD (hardware RAID5)
I need at least 8Tb of storage (hopefully RAID) and like 50-100Tb bandwitch.
For now I'm not sure where can I host such a project: looks like NL doesn't want to deal with that kind of projects, eastern EU doesn't have 1Gbit connections (ok, doesn't have cheap connections).
I'm not sure that UK/USA are good locations for us either.
Once again: we will remove abusive content within a given timeframe (usually it takes me <15 minutes)
