Please note: The missing flags is not related to the server migration. The Geolite database service changed and doesn't work with the current lobby server version. There will be a fix in the next days.

depends if you rsync the database, which is fastest to do ;)

And I might be able to assist with advise or help, since it is my regular job facilitating migrations at a hosting company.

(And +6€ for ECC by the way)

The biggest part of that is our replay vault and part of that seems to be duplicated, so some additional investigations required there, maybe we can reduce that. In worst case we would drop parts of the oldest replays which are most probably broken anyway. Another part of the solution is adding a new compression to the replay format, which would reduce replay size by ~20% (more information here).

How much more is a month to get 1TB raid config SSDs?

Rather spend time coding a compression algorithm, I would be fine donating some money dedicated to make up for the cost so we reduce the risk to 0%.

What OS?

I know it's not an enterprise server, but that's not what we are looking for. We can survive a service outage (the community doesn't have server admin adresses, so they can't pitchfork us :mrgreen:)and rather go for a better price.
If it weren't for the money I'd go full cloud hosted solution in kubernetes environment, but for 45€ we wouldn't even get the managed sql db.

Regarding the file system: I have absolutely no experience with this. I know the advantages of ZFS and BTRFS but I don't have the skills to set this up or fix it if something breaks. I would have gone for regular Ubuntu 18.04 LTS with whatever it comes in the default installation (probably ext4).

I've seen your PM and I will invite you to our Zulip chat. We can discuss if you want to help on this topic.

Protects vs bit rot, snapshots are a backup/restore/test heaven and the cache is MRU (Most Recent Used, not very exiting) and MFU (Most Frequent Used, this is the good stuff) so it will speed up harddisk access a lot (you can even add a ssd as secondary cache (l2arc) but for speed I would recommend: add more memory, zfs will use it all)
The memory of the new server is ECC right?
Are the ssd's sas or sata? (sata means be cautious with endurance and sudden failure, sas does to have more reliable prediction failure)
Considered a ssd/hardisk mix?
Is a owned server? (Can add our own hardware?)
If you want to go the sata ssd route, my advise: use 3 different brand ssd's with zfs in a 3 way mirror to prevent outage and data loss
( I tried a sata zfs server and while I monitored the smart endurance properties failures did occour after a few years...)
I would be happy to donate a 1tb sata ssd
