Here I am going over some ideas i had for self hosting
I do want to say that self-hosting is not for everyone or for every circumstance but there several reason I think would be resendable.
I think that the ideal setup for me would be to have a online storage provider that is cheap and only a one time payment. I think this will exist one day because storage will become cheaper over time any ways. Once 5D storage becomes commercially available, the cost will drop a lot.
That said, I just wanted to post things here I find helpful or interesting in helping with this.
- storage cost - I know AnyType would be a cool place to storage all of my files, including media files which takes up alot of space. It could be cheaper to buy my own storage for this.
- One-Time-Payment - Keeping the files on your own storage would mean you would not have to think about running out of money to pay some storage provider.
- Security - this could go both ways (not cloud or on-prem is full secure) but really i think for some people/business, just feel better if it was stored locally or could be there policy.
Those are just a few ideas. i am sure there is more.
