I suppose I can look into more dedicated hosting. Honestly, at our
level of project income, I wasn't even considering it.
Furthermore, I believe our current x86 infra has more than enough

already existing x86 infra, colo'ed x86 or ppc servers, or a cluster of
raspis in someone's basement.
I do have a static /27 on AT&T, if everyone can stomach 5 Mbit/s egress.

The idea of Integricloud is neat, but their unwillingness to set up

easily avoided, combined with their completely ludicrous prices, makes
them an extremly unattractive option in practice.
