Sounds more like a Hetzner VM hoster :frowning: , will you host on Hetzner? if yes i do not vote…

Wihtout confirmation that the HW will meet the spec found on page 3/4 of the I cannot support this application.

it is very doubtful all

Incomplete application form, not very promising. Note also that CPU-only nodes running in over-represented datacenters (such as Hetzner) are now being disabled and asked to make changes to continue operating, see here.

Does not have my vote.
