Fyi contabo throttles sad vps disk at 50 or 100mbs. If you submit a ticket they will lift this throttle from your vps.

Don't they throttle if you use too much bandwidth in 9 days? But thanks for the info!
Yes. It's a decent value option for a ongoing combined box with low traffic, but backfilling or feeder duties are best done elsewhere.

Elsewhere you say, any recommendations? I'm currently hunting a new feeder only.

If you want fast, Hetzner only counts upload bandwidth, make a Cloud instance, blow through 20TB (not hard on a shared 10Gb pipe), back it up, delete the project, create a new one, restore the backup and you have another 20TB. You could use a floating IP to make this easier with certificates etc. for the small extra cost. Webtropia/Servdiscount also have some reasonable deals on VPS' with unlimited bandwidth on a gigabit port, but given how quick/easy a backup/restore is.

You can also easily do this with gcloud fairly easily since each Gmail acct gets $300 in free cloud credits.

I've seen people talk about doing this before--how do you move the downloaded data from one cloud instance to another? Or do you still keep a main account and somehow transfer the data from each cloud instance to that single "library" account?

You mean from one gcloud instance to another correct? You can do other cloud providers but I don't know that ingress and egress would still be free. You can do so with rclone and utilities such as sasync or autorclone.

Typically the backups are off the arr applications. So it's easy to restore to any installation.

I just sign up for GCE when credits run out. Normally takes about 20 minutes or so to have it all up and running

Plex is on a different sever. Everything runs pretty smooth.

But what about the media files? Are you storing those locally?
Who ever stores media locally? Hundreds of terabytes of data on a local storage? Would cost a small fortune with hdds. And if you rent, it would be pretty expensive still.

Well yeah, but I didn't know a good way to transfer between drives, especially team/shared Google drives.

People must use sasync or autorclone. Good to know these tools exist!
