Server specifications

I was wondering what the server specifications are for a standard MayFirst account. Specifically

  1. Operating System
  2. Database Software available (I know there's MySQL, are there any others available by default as well)
  3. Hardware Requirements

3a. vCPUs/cores 3b. GB RAM 3c. GB storage

  1. Anything else that's helpful to know

I also don't know too much about servers, so my apologies if any of these questions don't make sense. :)

Ultimately this is to determine whether a MayFirst server could accommodate a Mattermost instance, but it seems like good info to have in general.

Hi Clayton,

Standard accounts exist on shared servers so we usually adjust the amount of memory and cpu cores allocated to shared servers based on the amount of sites and performance but no single site is guaranteed use of all of those computing resources. On the other hand some members do opt for using dedicated virtual private servers in which they can have dedicated computing resources.

As May First is first and foremost a membership organization that provides hosting services as a benefit to members the allocation of resources doesn't follow an 'a la carte' style price list for services like commercial hosting providers. But members who need a vps do contribute larger membership dues. We usually start off with 1cpu and 2GB ram but we can add more as needed.

I think a dedicated vps would probably be the best option for running a Mattermost instance. If you are interested in this option jamie can give you more details.

Great, thanks for the info. I've updated the Services wiki page with some of this info. I'll reach out to Jamie about the VPS for Mattermost.
