for a big database processing application that we developed on our own, we are looking for the cheapest solution:
users will upload e.g. 1-3MB files to the server and get back a similar file for download.
The application will do the job within few seconds and requires RAM of 150M-850M reffering to our tests on the development server.
That's why we the requirement is 1GB RAM.
Disk space can be small. System Core + Application + Database will be 3-4GB.
I worry about most offers that I found which have only few RAM or which are too expensive.
So I look forward to find a great hoster for the project here at wht.
You can definitely try the FIND A HOST option here on WHT and get a lot of good offers, and then from there you can do research to see which one fits your requirements the best.

Since you say it's a big db processing app, you'll probably want a quality VPS which will not be running on low-grade hardware, and that can cost quite a bit.
You will also need more space, though most hosts don't offer 5GB space with 1GB RAM anyway. The reason for this is system logs and temporary files which may end up leaving you without space over night, and without an admin to clean them up you may encounter serious problems.
