    I still have a self-hosted Phant instance (really!) for my IoT logging. Do you have any recommendations for a work-alike or work-similar self hosted platform I could switch to?

    My phant server instance runs in a docker container -> NFS in a Kubernetes cluster on a raspberry pi, if that helps for any suggestions...
