I'm looking at two servers at the moment, and while I fully realize that this is asking compairison of apples and oranges, which of these would you pick for general hosting of about 40 domains with moderate php and sql usage?
P4 2.4 ghz
512 mb ram
80 gb hd
located in Burstnet
1 gb ram
80 gb hd
located in Savvis
The price of these two machines is virtually identical.

Option 2, assuming it is with LayeredTech. If you would, please reference the actual provider of the server. Savvis is a global Tier 1 carrier with DC's all over the place. LayeredTech and Savvis are not the same thing as LayeredTech is just in a single Savvis DC and uses Savvis bandwidth.
Originally posted by X-Gaming Savvis is a bandwidth provider not a server provider..
LayeredTech is a server provider that uses Savvis like many others do..
When Layered Tech has several million dollars at it's disposal you can put them in the same league as Savvis..
Savvis offers managed dedicated servers at it's St. Louis facility, though they target enterprise customers so it's priced accordingly. When we last inquired about some Sun servers there about a year ago it was a few thousand dollars/month per server, but we were pricing out some pretty upscale hardware at the time.
Given that Savvis narrowly avoided being delisted by NASDAQ last week because of a long period of trading below $1 and has what many would consider a crushing debt load, I don't think being in the same financial league as Savvis would be anything to be particularly proud of.
