need host with ability to transfer and decompress large tar.gz files
I need a web host that will be able to provide a large MySQL db, enough transfer and space to upload large (2gb) compressed delimited text files (for use to script into the db) and very large (840gb) compressed image files, the ability to decompress the files, perl, and ssi.
I realize that the 840gb files may not be a possibility, or extremely expensive, but I am curious nevertheless. Still, I probably will go with the cheaper alternative of only worrying about the text files (2gb) and decompressing them.
Any suggestions for a reliable, reasonably price host?
An IDE solution to this situation wouldn't probably cost too
much. I am aware of a few providers who offer 500GB of
IDE storage space on P4's for around $200.00/mo for the
machine fee. I would say that for 315.00/mo you could
get 4x250GB IDE inside a P4 2.4Ghz with 1GB ram.
If not, then ask some hosts for a quote -- who also would quote you for a high capacity server in fact -- but would include full management services.
But considering your 1TB storage needs, the server itself would cost more and should have 4 drive bays for the 250 Gb x4 drives. So, if your pockets are lined enough put in a quote request for a hands-off-type fully managed dedicated server.
