This proposal a continuation of the previous infrastructure budget from July, which can be found here: https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/proposal-infrastructure-basic-needs.9207/

For our ongoing infrastructure needs, we feel that we can continue to operate using cloud-based infrastructure, which has lower upfront costs, more flexibility to add or remove capacity, and yet is still hosted in a professionally managed datacenter. It would also ensure that these assets are under the control of the project, as opposed to individuals who were previously donating capacity.

Here are the details on the services this ongoing funding provides for the month of August. Note that we are adding $10 / month for a VPS needed for several integrations now underway.

Cloud infrastructure costs:
$260 per month for AWS and Google services and administration
Roles:
- Route53 DNS zone management
- EC2 web server instances
- S3 for web server instances
- Backups and auditing
- Gmail for domains
- VPS for integrations support

Hosted Compile Server:
$150 per month for co-location and replacement parts for our Bamboo compile server

Requested funding is as follows for the August 5th budget cycle:
Total: 57.85 Dash

Note: Should any funding remain after the project is complete, we will apply those funds toward future infrastructure funding needs
