Today my AWS server randomly stopped working because the server it was virtualized on died. It was a pain to fix and I was lucky to have a backup.

For my most recent projects I’ve been hosting on GitHub Pages and storing data on Firebase. I only used AWS for legacy projects and to coordinate WebRTC video for my Karaoke app.

Switching away from AWS is looking increasingly attractive. Other options include Docker, Terminal, and Digital Ocean. Anyone have great experiences with them?
