this is Marc from Barcelona and I am currently setting up my first Cardano Stake pool with some colleagues! [LYNX]
One of my big concerns is: which Cloud Provider pick and why?
I’ve been working for several years with Azure and I love it, but I have the feeling that for those Relay & Producer nodes is too much, so this is why I was looking for a more simple VPS provider, like Contabo or Digital Ocean.
Why Contabo has these lower prices comparing with other companies? Maybe @Alexd1985 can give me a bit of good advice on that? I saw you promote them but I wanted to be sure that the performance is expected!
Reduce initial costs is one of my hot topics because to be honest, I do not expect to mine any block at all in the first months so…
Also, another concern I need to clarify is: how much RAM is nowadays is recommended? I saw some last posts saying that 8GB is not enough… should I move directly to a 16gb nodes with this new 1.29 version?
I don’t want to start everything and change the properties in a few days due to lack of memory…
Thanks for the support and have a great day all!
