  • Google Workspace will limit school and universities to just 100TB for the entire org
    exactly like slammer said. Depends on how much data you deal with. But get hard drives. And use open source self hosting apps. This is a great list in my opinion there’s apps for everything in this list check it out: GitHub Self Hosted Page
  • Protest note about user privacy changes by Reddit | 2021-02-26
    This is pretty neat looking. I am really digging the UI.

    Would you ever consider making this open-source? It would be a great addition to the Awesome-Selfhosted list. [1]


  • Why is it not more common for people to fork projects to create variations?
    Like I can see under calibre there are a few sub projects but I don't know if they are really "forks" so much as complimentary. (And did someone call their project Epube on purpose or what?) Calibre is a great example of a piece of software that is very popular but virtually everyone has ...mixed feelings about. In some ways I would expect there to be sister projects of people trying to fix it up a bit. Or taking parts of it to do other things etc.
  • Recently reorganized network into VLANs | 2021-02-25
    Take a look at this list. Lots of things you could do:
  • Digital transformation and paperless | 2021-02-25
    Open source use THIS GITHUB LIST
  • Calling all IT engineers/devs (Delete if not allowed) | 2021-02-25
    There are already self service desk and open source systems that do the same thing. Don't reinvent the wheel, just look them up HERE ON GIT
  • Finance Tool With Projection? Trying To Replace PocketSmith
    I've been looking through awesome-selfhosted and I've tried a number of these before but it's been awhile. Firefly III was almost perfect except for the fact that it doesn't do projections (unless that has changed in the past year or so).
  • What do you wish somebody told you when you were a fledgling devops person? | 2021-02-23
    Practicing with related technologies in a homelab grants you experience that will help with the stuff you use in your day job. Running Kubernetes on Proxmox on spare hardware is great, and there's a good list of things you can deploy and play with is here:
  • Dashboard for my apps with SSO support
    Something like Authelia ? I haven't tried Okta recently, so I can't tell what you want. Is this for personal use or business? There is also Cloudron and Yunohost but they are also app management tools and not just a simple dashboard. There's also organizr and heimdall but not sure if they integrate with other SSO. See also

  • Network diagram to represent my one year anniversary with this hobby | 2021-02-20
    Well thank you! When I first started out, I was looked at a ton of diagrams on this sub and learned about a lot of them from the diagrams. Also, I browse r/selfhosted a lot and there is a really nice list of software here.
  • Cockpit – Integrated, glanceable, web-based interface for your servers | 2021-02-19
    Unfortunately things are moving very slowly in this area. Sandstorm is basically abandoned and Cloudron is not even open source. Bitnami and Yunohost are also major options.
