cost forecast and comparison

 

 

current proposed
vendor cost vendor cost vendor
njfcs.org domain registration $12.95 eapps $6.99 godaddy.com
http://www.njfcs.org hosting $356.40 eapps $0 dreamhost non-profit org discount
registration site $200 Gwo-Ming $168 amazon ec2
mail service $120  1&1 $10 amazon ses
 phone number $8.95 $0 google voice

 

  • Separate domain name registration from hosting service give us the flexibility to move to another vendor at any time
  • I’ve subscribed amazon ec2 with njfcs1944@gmail.com with my own contact and credit card info – will have to be updated with school’s info; I’ve kept setup and config notes at http://derekchang.me/ec2-for-fcs/
  • Once you and staff confirm, I will go ahead to subscribe to justhost with a 2-year term ($2.48/month) so that we can proceed with implementing new services – will have to be updated with school’s info
  • Once 3 is done, webmaster team can start building new site but first step is to secure mysql backup and the file sharing services
  • eapps is dedicated host while justhost is shared virtual host and ec2 is virtual machine built upon xen framework – there are pros and cons for each them but new solutions will be more economic
