Thanks for your reply. As you might have guessed I don't have much idea about manage hosting tits bits. So let me be more specific here. Architecture wise we would like to use 2 Solaris boxes along with dedicated Raid boxes for our Oracle db and Linux based pentium machines for web servers. Correct me if I am wrong what you are suggesting some company can lease this hardware(along with monitoring/management services) to us and we can do all software installations ourselves? Well this is fine to us. If this assumption is right could you please suggest some sites/vendors?
