I have noob question, but it's very important for me.
The techie for our company is suggesting that VPS is not good for a eCommerce portal and I should go for a dedicated server. When I ask him why he does not gives a clear reply. The specs he mentioned fit very will in a vps:
100 GB disk space on RAID 6 Disks
100 GB data transfer on 100 Mbps line
1 GB dedicated Virtual Memory (RAM)
1 Virtual CPU Core
Hosting on Quad core Xeon high density blade server with SAN storage.
Managed SonicWall Enterprise Hardware firewall
1 dedicated IP address (India)
2 Remote desktop connections
Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 OS
Microsoft SQL 2008 Express edition
Asp.net 2.0, 3.5 and 4.0 and PHP support.
Website Control panel
Microsoft Hyper-V Technology
What do you suggest? we're just starting a ecommerece website and the above infra is more than sufficient for it.
