5 x Linux Dedicated Servers for $156.25 per month! | New Customers Only!
Need to run a distributed computing project that requires multiple I/O channels. Like many customers has discovered you can buy 1 huge multi-core system or you can separate your loads by distributing your tasks among multiple servers. All for the price of a single dedicated server. So what could you do with a multi-server configuration?
(1) You could distributed the load for a high volume web site between 2-4 web servers. You could create a fully replicated back-end database between 2 servers. You could use the remaining servers for backup, development and staging.
(2) You could use all 5 servers to create a fully redundant replicated file system with an aggregate capacity of 1.0TB then you can use all or some subset of the nodes to host virtual machines.
(3) Build a Hadoop (map-reduce) cluster for data processing
(4) Create 2 dedicated game servers and run the web site and database servers from different nodes.
(5) Create a back-end storage array using TCP/IP raid. To mirror content from remote production environments.
(6) Build a private cloud (EC2 like) using Eucalyptus and much more...
These are just a few of the ways existing customers are using the configurations.
(1) The servers are independent of each other.
(2) 1000GB per server or 3.3Mbit/s AVG RATE per server to Internet 100Mbit/s ports
(3) 100Mbit/s (server to server ) ON-NET
Details regarding all of your questions and more can be found there.
Just to clarify the offering, the servers are delivered as stand-alone boxes. It is up to the customers to configure the collection of machines for different uses. The information contained in the original post are really examples of how customers who have purchased collections of machines have used them. While I know people like to post and ask questions about the offerings most of the those questions have been answered in great detail in the following place: http://www.leeware.com/support.html
I strongly urge those that are interested in the service to spend 15 minutes reading through the support pages to make sure this service meets your intended use.
