    Dedicated

    Looking for a dedicated setup.

    Looks like I can get a good deal on a MediaTemple Rage (dv) setup for $80/month. 40GB storage, 1GB Ram, 1.5TB data, CPU unknown.

    Any other considerations?

    I guess my ceiling $100 but of course, lower is better.

    what are you planing to host on such low end machine?
    just make sure you don't end up with an under-powered server.
    for that budget, you will be able to get a high end VPS server, but it depends on the application you are planing to host on your server, also , Linux or Windows ?

    I would say it is really important you figure out what the CPU is. For all you know it could be on a processor that is so old and slow, you don't have the capability of transmitting 1.5tbs of data in a month. If my math is right, 1.5tb of data transfer a month boils down to a little under 5mbits/sec. Do you think an old P2 could handle roughly 3 T1s worth of traffic? I have SO seen Pentium2 servers in dumpsters recently, so there have to be some still in use. Just be careful, it could be a great deal assuming the CPU isn't a dinosaur.

    Also, if I messed up that math terribly I apologize. It's been a while.

    Will be using nginx/fpm/php5 to power 4 sites. 3 of which are _low_ traffic. Running Linux (flexible between ubuntu and CentOS, pref is ubuntu).

    Looks like this dedicated is a dedicated-virtual.

    From Mediatemple.net:
    "Our (dv) Dedicated-Virtual Servers are powered by Hewlett-Packard Proliant DL-Series machines featuring multi-core Intel Xeon processors and high-performance SCSI/SAS disk drives in a RAID-5 configuration."

    It says right on the page . You should be fine with a 1GB RAM VPS, though I don't know how crammed the MediaTemple DV nodes are, as the grid servers used to be quite problematic in the past, though that's a different service.

    Yes a P2 certainly can handle that traffic, and much more.

    I suggest looking for a VPS server if that is the case :-)
    probe around the offers sections , contact hosts ask for quotes - some research will get you started.

    does the location of the server matters? If europe is ok, check out kimsufi: their basic server is really cheap.

    Sifting through some of the dedicated offers, I found a couple good offers. This one caught my eye, still evaluating the specs and other offers though.

    2AM Network:
    Q9300 (4x2.50GHz) - 8GB RAM - 1TB SATA HDD - 4TB Bandwidth - 5IPs - Free Setup ----- $88.00 /Month


    What do you guys think?

    Just wanted to update everyone that I've gone with neXeon's offer which was really good. He also helped me out with literally a dozen questions I had about the service he was offering.

    So far so good, now I'm just waiting for the server. :-)

    My second choice was 2AM but there are some issues over there... http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=895033

    I believe my signature and WHT offers thread says it all.

    Advertising your own deals is not permitted according to forum rules. "i have seen the same deal for less" was not from a 3rd party, but from your own company. That is advertising.

    Honest truth, to me it did not seem like he was advertising as I had to ask him to spill the beans.

    Only after a PM was that I realized he was offering.

    I guess the only recourse is to delete this thread.

    I think this is a wonderful community and value it very much, even though I'm new!

    In all fairness if this thread violates the rules please delete this thread.

    I do not want to piss anyone off.
