    Co-lo vs Dedicated for 10mbit

    I would like some suggestions:

    My server at ev1 is at 400GB right now. I won't be too surprised if the usage is over 700GB/month in six months. Most of the bandwidth is binary download.

    I have some options
    1. Get additional dedicated server.
    2. Replace with two servermatrix servers w/ vlan. vlan means more flexibility in the future.
    3. Replace with a 10mbit dedicated server.
    4. Co-lo.

    What are the pros and cons of each option?

    Thanks, benoitb (and EV1)

    I didn't know that. That's pretty cool, no need to upgrade for a while.

    I dont know if your still interested in opinions but take a look at the MRTG for your server and if you see it going above 10MB (or even 8) you probably dont want to go for the 10mbit dedicated server (unless they allow you to burst , which isnt very common)

    Personally, (as a former ev1server customer) I think the best way to go is find a local datacenter (if you can) and host colo there.

    We've found it to be the most flexible and cost effective arrangement.
