on the other hand, u guys could provide more customized support/etc for the servers themselves...
so i guess its a question of what the client figures their hosting environment be? one with high load per server (increasing chance of server dying) or not...
Well if you want to get down to it, no. They would be better off going direct to exodus or verio so they have direct contact with the techs, granted for a much greater price. What we do it no different than what other dedicated providers out there do, go thru a company that buys in bulkbandwidth and get a bulk discount ourself from them. We save a vast amount of money doing this than going direct to exodus even with the usage we have, with no degrade in quality.
As for what the serverload would be, thats totally dependant on the client what they want to spend and how many eggs they want in a single basket.
