FreeBSD in the cloud

An intro to VPS, presented by a user.

After 20 years of having a static IP address at my house in order to host my FreeBSD server, I've finally switched over to a VPS, including the use of GPT+ZFS.

I propose to discuss the special challenges that come from virtualized hardware, which also come along with the more ordinary challenges of remote hosting - having all of your data in a datacenter several states (or perhaps continents) away from you.
