Who pays for the vps? You?
stop7088130dI would have it installed on my vps as an poc. After they denied it i would have shut it off without an notice and then the people who are crying send them the email of the rejection.
Voxera10793130dWell, is the tool in any way connected to your or the customers system in a way that can harm those systems in any way other than any other computer on the internet?
jotamontecino1965130dDon't use personal assets for Work-related stuff when you are not a Founder!!!
If they are not ready to pay, You should be either!
Also if shit hit the fan you could be liable...
EmberQuill3808130dWait, so your personal VPS has data relating to something you're working on for your job?
I'd definitely get fired for trying something like that.
Voxera10793129d@blindXfish it sounds like close enough to actually it could be a security issue :/
Private vps rarely have the same monitoring and or strict underlying security.
And if your manager only told you this and did not go ballistic over it he might actually understand your situation and if your lucky he could be an ally once those complaints start coming and help explain why you need a company server for this.
Security minded managers are rarely the same that blocks resources, they often fight the same battle of getting enough for the level of security they would like :)
I could be wrong though.
