Could anyone share storage usage statistics after, say, 6 months of Discourse usage for a small community?
While I’m sure that a $10 to $20 DigitalOcean instance will server our small (<1000 users) community pretty well during years, I doubt about whether 10 to 20GB is enough for those who like to share images all the time (like our users).
Also, could you be so kind to share S3 usage statistics (or probably just an average monthly bill?). I can’t even imagine how many gigabites are usually stored and downloaded by site visitors, so I cannot estimate possible expenses.
Our old PHP-based forum currently has 80k views/day and ~800 users.
There are a few images in almost every topic.
