I am helping a friend choose a dedicated server for a college. The college is located overseas and has around 1500 people. They need Email service, web presence and place where students can host their personal pages.
I am looking for a dedicated server and the necessary software for them to manage it. They are experienced in Linux, but obviously, managing large number of accounts may require some easy to use software. They also need an option for backup.
Most of the dedicated servers seem to cater to resellers and the software seem to support such users.
Originally posted by aragon There are many configurations possible, depending on how much the college is willing to spend and how concerned they are about security.
Ok. Here are the assumptions. They need at least 30GB space. Probably RAID configuration (flexible on this point). They want somebody else to apply all the vendor patches. While security is important, it is not as if they are going to keep really valuble information there. So, they want to keep out script kiddies.
Ultimately, the budget allows some $150 per month. So, within this limit whatever is suitable for a college they need that. It is a small local college with limited resources and needs. Currently, they really do not have a server -- so anything is an improvement.

Possibly CP+ from the makers of H-Sphere? I actually don't have any experience with this product, but I have been looking in to it recently; I'm planning on installing their 30-day trial once I get a new server.
