Because Dreamhost is disabling my sudo access to VPS, I’m being forced into DreamCompute and I have some serious concerns with high costs and disk space.
I currently use 366GB of disk space and 777GB of bandwidth each month on my VPS plan (unlimited disk space and bandwidth - features that I’ve had for 10 years, even back in the internet “stone age”). All of my sites run fine with 800MB of RAM and I’m assuming just one CPU…
With this new DreamCompute plan, it says I have to pay $10/mo for 1GB RAM, 1 vCPU and 80GB of disk space (explains absolutely nothing about bandwidth on the sales page or what you need to do when you need more disk space). Since I have 366GB being used (mostly product images), I would be forced into a $50/mo plan with 500GB of space, which at the bare minimum would be able to handle my 366GB of disk space. I wouldn’t need anywhere near the 8GB of RAM and 4 CPUs that same plan offers.
I looked into DreamObjects which charges $0.025/GB + $0.05/GB outbound bandwidth. With my current usage, this comes out being nearly $60/mo just for raw disk space and bandwidth… which is unacceptable. I don’t even know if DreamObjects is even supposed to be used as a supplement with DreamCompute when there isn’t enough block storage disk space available. I’m also told that DreamObjects is a completely separate service - very confusing and expensive.
Question: If I sign up for the $10/mo DreamCompute plan, isn’t there a slider where I can simply increase my disk space with a reasonable cost? and WITHOUT having to sign up for DreamObjects? I’m not really getting a clear answer from Dreamhost support either.
