Looking for a managed dedicated server provider


Hi,

We're looking for a managed dedicated server provider. Our requirements are as below :

- We'll run Apache 2.2/MySQL 5.x
- No control panel.
- No mail servers, however we'll need to run sendmail or something similar for sending mails from our application.

We'll need a server with minimal requirement to start with. But later, we might want to scale our application and following might be required :

- Multiple clusters for serving requests
- NFS cluster or something similar for storage.
- Failover mechanism for data on NFS cluster.

We're looking at providers who have experience in the fields mentioned above. Please post your suggestions.

Thanks,
Pratik

are you aiming at US or UK customers? , if your UK, ive found that having UK hosting is so much faster then US, also these days isnt that much more expensive.

Whats more important price or quality ?

Any preference to location ?

Do you have a budget for this?

You should be aware it's very hard to run NFS clusters that are in constant sync with a backup server. We've had requests for the same kind of thing in the past, and the best way is simply to run a periodic syncronisation.

In terms of 'multiple clusters for serving requests' I take it you mean frontend web servers sat behind loadbalancers?

Using DRBD in combination with heartbeat should do the trick. A few years ago I tried the periodic synchronization trick using rsync on a 1TB NFS share and it just didn't scale well. It usually works for files that dont change often. Also another option that may work is to trigger a remote copy to the NFS servers if your uploads/changes are controlled by your applications but this depends on your application to do it right. Also there are other network file systems that support high availability.

I'm with ServInt.com - great reputation. Bit more expensive than your average, but you get what you pay for!! Check out their forums: you'll see they have a very solid reputation.
