Geoserver Hosting

Hi there,

We’re looking at migrating away our Geoserver from Acugis due to bad support. A couple of questions:

  1. Would we be able to get it set up easily enough?
  2. Would we get any advice on what kind of server requirements we would need?
  3. Is it easy enough to increase resources if needed?
  4. Will the migration be covered in this if we give SSH access?
  5. How good is the support really? AcuGIS mentioned “24/7 support”, but that turned out to be a load of bull…

Hey madcabbage,
Did you end up migrating GeoServer to Cloudways? How did it go? Thinking of doing that too.
