Self hosting OpenStreetMap OSM and Layers

2 Endorsements
Last Modified: 2016-02-02
If we self hosted the full OSM database and what ever else is needed, could we be 100% independent of any external services to render our maps/layers?

I don't want to sound cheap but we'll be using this ten thousand times a day (don't ask) so paying for hosted service would add up like mad. Instead, I would like to self host everything we need including being able to have fast direct local access to the data.

Am I missing something?

And, if I am not missing something, does anyone know of a good tutorial on how to go about installing everything needed or some already existing package or script, etc.
