At Rackspace looking for same quality with cheaper bandwdith
I currently have all my servers at Rackspace and am spoiled by there support and service. However, I have just received a request which more than processing power is going to require a lot of bandwidht ~600-1000 GB per month. Now, Rackspace would charge $1.80 per GB making this quite an expensive soluiton... here are my requirements:
A Rehat Enterprise Linux 3 server w/ some sort of mirrored RAID (just don't want the entire thing going down if a HD fails) and daily backups on a solid preferably multi-homed backbone(s). Processing power isn't too important, a fair amount of memory would be great. I'd also really like a hardware firewall in front of this. I'd completely manage the server myself, but would like the firewall to be setup and configured to spec. I'd like to spend between $200-$300 per month.
Don't care about control panels, etc - am fully comfortable w/ linux command line.
