Orpheus hits crowdfunding target

Posted by Mark Stephens on 17:26, 11/9/2018 |
 
In July, Orpheus announced their plan to crowdfund their new project.
 
With their usual modesty, they quietly recently updated their website to say the Company had raised the target figure and work has begun. Excellent news for RISC OS market and for their customers.....
 
On a personal note, my 6 year old router had issues over the weekend. Richard Brown from Orpheus was on the phone sorting it out at 9am on Saturday morning and helping me to sort out a replacement router asap.....

As someone stated in a comment on the original article surely it's far better to pay someone like AWS for this? Renting cheap space at an established data centre must be a cheaper option?

I'm not dismissing the brilliant work Orpheus has been doing, especially keeping the service running after Paul Vigay, but having a small local "shed" type server room just seems very dated. More akin to the 90s hobbyist way of running things.

So absolutely in line with "the RISC OS way". Do it on your own, but a lot more expensive and still sometimes worse.
