My company needs a own mail server , in that case we would like to setup opensource zimbra mail server and the problem is how to get a droplet or any cloud platform in a low cost because zimbra mail server needs minimum 8 GB of memory and it’s quiet costly for us . My question is how can we setup Zimbra server on budget cloud provider is there any special way to buy a cloud platform ?
