Some months ago, I got an email from my server provider Hetzner, telling me that I have to migrate my server to a new system. When I started with this entire server hosting as a student, I had loads of time and interest in these things, but nowadays, I just want something that is working. I do not want to care about exploding mail standards, Debian upgrades, server migrations, ever evolving security rules, backups and so on. So I took this opportunity to shut down my main server entirely and move to some proper cloud services. This posts illustrates the choices and the pros and cons compared to my old, self-hosted solution.
