Hetzner Bare Metal Servers Available At MetalVPS
Curium, a MetalVPS bare metal server at Hetzner, has become available. If you are interested in playing with Curium, or with a part of Curium (e.g., a VPS or a container), please let @Not_Oles know immediately!
Curium might be cancelled in a day or maybe in two days if nobody is interested. If you have your own Hetzner account and you want to take Curium as a transfer, that might be possible. Please note that Hetzner recently seems to have raised by a couple of Euros the minimum auction fixed price for servers like Curium.
Curium presently is running Debian 12, but could be reinstalled any way you like. You could do the reinstall yourself, if you wish.
Curium's supercalifragilistically excellent Low End specifications and price paid to Hetzner are shown below!
Any other Hetzner server also could be arranged.
@Not_Oles is Especially Clueless™ about Debian, Fedora, and all other OSes. 🤗
Sometimes trusted MetalVPSians might or might not get sudo. 🙈🙉🙊
MetalVPS has no billing panel and no server control panel. It's all command line via ssh until you install the GUI that you want. 🆕
MetalVPS has no onboarding and no knowledge base. ♒︎
Account delivery might take awhile! 😴
Intended especially for computer learning and fun! 🤑
Frequent maintenance reboots are guaranteed! 🌺
Please make your own redundant, offsite backups! It's easy to download or sync or clone your backup to a safe place. Please also make sure that you actually can restore from your backups! Please think of your MetalVPS account as ephemeral! Your server might blow up! 💥 At any random second @Not_Oles or maybe you might reinstall the Node! 🤦♂️
Other MetalVPSians can see your account name, some of the processes you are running, and much other information. So, please do not put confidential information on the server. 🤔
**MetalVPS Customized BIGburgers might be available with your choice of toppings! 🍔
