How much memory do we think will be necessary? The current instance is
an 8GB RAM instance. As long as we have quota for it, there should not
be a problem redeploying on a bigger instance.

I have commented on this change. I would prefer we not backup the dev
server and only backup the production server. We don't treat our dev
servers as permanent or reliable installs as they may need to be
reloaded for various reasons to aid development and testing. Also we
should set up backups similar to how we do the other services (I left a
comment on this change with a link to an example).

This is something that can be discussed with the infra team, typically
we would give access to someone assisting with implementation to the
-dev server while keeping the production server as infra-root only. I
will make sure fungi sees this.

Hope this helps,
