No more VPS

A little of history

For a really long time I was using Contabo VPS as my main server. I was really happy with it. Good thing was, I bought it long time ago, before changes in packages, so I had few cores more then you may have right now for the same price. Similar story was with system memory. Ok, disk storage was lower then you will get now, but it wasn’t important for me. In my case, most of the space is used by images, and all of them are offloaded into S3 bucket anyway.

S3 and Ccloudflare

Because I’m using S3 bucket as a storage for offloaded images, I don’t need a lot of space and transfer. But… if I will serve images directly from S3, it will not look nice from the url point of view. So I mixed S3 (as storage) and Cloudflare with custom sub-domain (as CDN – Content Delivery Network).

Podcast applications have a rich functionality for content delivery – automatic download of new episodes, remembering last played position, sync between devices and offline listening. This functionality is not available on YouTube. But still – how to do it?
