Now with backups

Published on November 6, 2019 by Una

We are now making copies of all uploaded media to Wasabi, as an offline backup solution. (Wasabi works excellently for backups, but their frequent downtime and slowness makes them unsuitable as a CDN.)

This adds $5/TB to our monthly costs (I have a grandfathered Wasabi account with their old prices), compared to DigitalOcean's $20/TB. I feel this is worth it for having redundancy in the event something happens causing DigitalOcean to corrupt our data, or we get kicked off for some reason.
