disk space

We’re getting low on disk space for again; it was down to ~2 GB today. I pruned some things and got it back up to ~6 GB, but wanted to get the ball rolling on a long-term solution.

The Community Team has discussed this in the past and decided that we’d strongly prefer to not delete old messages, because we sometimes need to go back and reference them. For Central’s accounts, there are also some legal restrictions around contracts, etc that need to be kept.

The last time this happened, sysmonk increased the space from 20 GB to 50 GB, but we’ve used that up in the past two years. We’re expecting to have about 125 WordCamps this year, and that’s growing 10% – 15% each year, so I don’t think the current solution is going to work for much longer, unless we can get a much larger chunk of the 300 GB available on the server.

What kind of options would you recommend? It might be good to answer the SSL/webmail question first, since we might end up migrating to Google Apps or something if modern webmail isn’t an option.
