Isn't the requirement really a reliable way to restore the site? Why do
we need to buy massive servers? Why don't we employ our skills and the
multiple machines we have connected to the net. Take the Maven site for
example: a simple list of people who are willing to enlist their
machines for builds. Use something like damage control on the machine
where the sites are hosted and if a new site needs to be generated have
the hub request from the enlisted machines to build and upload the site.
The first one to respond gets the job.

Or if it is an absolute requirement that we have the boxes then why
doesn't each member pitch in a 100 bucks and we'll buy some machines
instead of waiting for the tooth fairy to drop them in our lap. I'll
donate a 100 bucks.
