BigBlueButton Hosting in DigitalOcean?

  • Posted July 10, 2014

Is it possible to have BigBlueButton hosting on DigitalOcean? I’m looking for some solutions and this hosting seems very good.

Thanks guys.


Actually, I just downgraded to a 1 gig droplet, and it works with a few users. I tried the 512 gig, but it didn’t have enough memory to load all the BBB modules, so it couldn’t connect to the server, but the 1 gig ($10 per month) solution seems to work ok.

It works for me with the 80gig solution.

hello i will install BigBlueButton too. Do you want talk experiences?

The installation instructions say it will run on Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit, which is one of the available options. So there you go.

BBB only works fine on a bare metal server…

I tested it on a KVM VPS with 4 GB Ram but the audio quality with two users only is poor.

I have installed it on a C2 bare metal server from Scaleway (EUR 12/month) and I works great…

Additionally, the minimum hardware specs for running a big blue button server are here:

So since you’ll be needing a quad core setup, you’ll have to at least run on a $80/month server…

Additionally, you’ll read in the deeper specs that you have to install it on bare metal:

… so I’m really looking forward to hear from people actually running big blue button…
