I've only been listening for a few months and have been catching up on some of your older episodes. While we're so different in so many ways, I've noticed some similarities in our education & career background and love the way you guys bring a level-headed view to the news and net/sysadmin stuffs. The guests for the last few episodes have been fantastic too - in particular, BHIS with the Backdoors & Breaches and kringlecon have given me enough to fill up my spare time learning new techniques and software! Keep doing what you do!

    Episode 73 - Hosting from home, colo, or cloud

    Welcome to Episode 73  
    Main Topic Self hosting, vs cloud hosting, vs colo hosting
    Control Home: full control Colo: less control but still high IaaS: You’ve lost some control, but you still retain some. Decent trade off. SaaS:  little to no control Convenience Home: Convenient for access, but just about nothing else. Colo: Access is inconvenient, but power/cooling is much more convenient IaaS: This can be very convenient if you’re not into dealing with hardware at all.  SaaS:  the loss of control can be inconvenient, but your not responsible for most of the stack, so its super convenient that way.  Excitement or passion Home: If you’re passionate about privacy, or doing it yourself, this can be a huge thrill Colo: This is actually very similar to hosting at home, you just arent worried about the power/cooling.  IaaS: This isnt terribly different from Colo, unless you love tweaking hardware.  IaaS can be very fun for someone who likes to build.  SaaS: I guess this depends on you, but SaaS is basically a canned solution, not much to get excited about. UpTime/OnCall Home: You, you, and you.. No backup… Colo: You, you, and mostly you..  Backup maybe? IaaS: You’re responsible for your apps SaaS: You’re screwed.  Good luck.
