Well, people seem to be overwhelmingly of the opinion that 500€/month is
too much. In that case, I put forth the next best contender, the Hetzner
AX160-NVMe at 164€/month base price. At its base configuration, it has half
the memory, half the disk space and roughly half the compute power of the
server I originally put forth but it's also 1/3 the price at this

Given that we'd trade it for current soyuz at 54€/month, it means we'd pay
110€/month extra.

What do you guys think about that?
