Well... i guess the AX51-NVMe product from Hetzner is better for our application and it has ECC RAM and 2x1TB SSD, saves alot of problems. The difference is 24 EUR/month. Also ECC is kind of a must on servers.
In case of i can contribute myself with 50EUR for 2020 ;)

Short update: The server is being installed right now. I hope we will do the dns-handover within this week. Unfortunately there was some delay on provisioning the server so we lost a few days and my holidays are over now.

Most of you have noticed that we had no downtime yesterday. Due to organisational issues we were temporarily unable to change the DNS. We have not planned when we will do the next try. We'll see.

From what I can tell it's taking a bit longer, I don't think the server will be back by midnight.

We had to fix some ipv6 problems and reverse dns which cost us a little time, but overall the downtime was below 3 hours so we made it in time almost.

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.
