This is a page John threw together to give outside users a basic overview of how donations are used and the cost of running Orain on both a monthly and yearly basis is like. This information is correct as of 30th of October 2014.

Currently, Orain has 7 virtual private servers in deployment (prod3, prod5-10). prod3 and prod5 cost $10/mo to keep running while prod6-10 are only $5/mo. This leads to a monthly cost of $45/mo. After a year, the cost would be $540. The domain (paid for yearly) is about $10 (needs to be confirmed).

The yearly running cost for Orain right now is $550. This is wholly funded through donations.
