    Dedicated server 600GB?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm interested in hosting a large (600Gb) FTP site for a portion of our business that is accessed by our clients. The site has to have 24/7 redundancy as well as the ability for us to upload additional information each month.
    Can you recommended a which web host since i can't find anywhere

    Thank you very much!

    that is alot of drive space, you may have to call up datacenters personally and see if you can negotiate something. I would start with layeredtech.com, they have been very accomidating with special requests

    24/7 redundancy
    What exactly do you mean by that? If you want/need true redundancy, you're going to have to look into a load balanced cluster to begin with, and potentially with diverse geographic areas.

    Though it may be pretty expensive the ev1servers custom orders department could setup something like what you would want on a load balancer.

    It sounds you are looking for at least 3x300GB in RAID-5 which will give you 600GB usable or prehaps 4x250Gb in RAID-5 which will give 750Gb usable

    Check the dedicated offers forum, I just glanced at this offer for 900GB (look to me like a typo though, see for yourself):

    That's 900 GB of bandwidth, not space?

    If your really interested in 24/7 availability, I wouldn't go with mass market everyday hosts that are on WHT. While there is nothing wrong with them, other hosts are more specialized just for this purpose.

    Personally Id talk to either www.ethr.net or Jay at Cyberverse([email protected]). While I believe Jay only does mission critical colocation, I'm sure he could help you get the machine(s) you need for a real 24/7 accessible setup.

    Personally I wouldn't want that much storage on 1 server, I would think they would point you to some sort of network attached storage device, and a front end box or two.

    You should be able to get 600 GB of space at a reasonable price especially if you go 2 X 300 GB hard drives. This depends on your bandwidth requirements of course.
