Finnish mirror shutdown and idea to replace

Due to financial reasons I have to shutdown Tier 1 Mirror in Finland (
Hetzner raised prices again and Mirror size grown to 170 GB, so no longer can maintain VM with mirror anymore.

I found, that Alwyzon provides affordable Storage VMs. I also found, that they mirror is outdated.

Ticket for whitelisting new IPs is already created to @philm : New IP Addresses for `` (#185) · Issues · Applications / pacman-mirrors · GitLab

Currently I am syncing from

I would love to have a mirror in Finland. It worked great and was fast as lightning! Is there any way the community could chip in with the costs?

@direc85, it would be nice, if someone could support this. Currently, I moved mirror to my physical server with zero additional costs (but I cannot provide even 99% uptime on this one),

I decided to Finnish mirror as is. As it is co-allocated with my other VMs there is no additional costs to maintain mirror anymore.
