Do you use cloud/virtual servers or dedicated ones?
I recently switched from cloud servers to dedicated (Hetzner) and I love the better performance, but I am missing a little bit the flexibility I had with cloud servers (hourly billing, instant creation/deletion, easily expandable storage up to 10TB per volume and software support for Kubernetes for both block storage and load balancers). Some maintenance operations in K8s are more complicated with dedicated servers and adding more storage means adding up to 2 drives up to 2 1TB each if I want fast NVMe. Not too bad, but not as flexible.
What do you use/prefer and why?
