Private Cloud on the Cheap


Can you build a useful cloud for less than $500?

And why would you do something like that?

Picking hardware isn't hard but the starting point to look at can be. Will cover the process I originally used to figure it out. Why I choose building my own server instead of getting used rack mount hardware. That a Raspberry Pi can be used.

Hardware is not always the most difficult part. This talk will provide an overview of installation. The Ansible for my installation is shared on Gitlab. Will provide some overview and explanation.


Finally what did this all get used for? Was this small of a cloud actually useful? My private cloud has been very useful. How useful has been more determined by the free time I have for side projects than the size of the cloud
