    The specs for lunar all sound good. On one of my old sites I used to push over 30GB a month with a pretty high transaction load and it was all handled by one good server admin and P500 running Unix and about a 1/4 GB ram (if memory serves correctly.. it's been a couple years) and my site wasn't the only one on the box..

    It's really more about the server admin than the gear nowadays.

    I'm pretty close to going with lunarpages. They also have a 30day money back guarantee and 99.9% uptime guarantee. Their techs also wear pagers 24/7 that go off should a server have and problems. Just the fact that if there is a problem you have someone to discuss it with 24/7 is a huge difference. From the responses I see in their forums they are almost fanatical about uptime.

    this is where their datacenter is:

    "one of the most connected buildings in the world"

    Their techs have an office in this building. I think we'll give these guys a shot.

    Ok, we're going with them. I've purchased a years hosting package and can get a refund within 30 days if we don't like it. The account should be ready soon and I think we'll look to next weekend for the migration. They have a similar file structure to the current isp, so hopefully it won't be too painful. I'm doing the migration in a way that apug will always be up in the process -so as the dns updates to the new isp you'll notice the forum working again, if your dns is not updated you'll have the apug site with a locked forum. Looks like we'll have to get by on the chatroom for a few days next weekend!

    Hmm, I've heard good things about their blades. They're no IBM's, but pretty good. They have backup servers on standby, and most everything in the servers is hotswapable (so if something is about to croak they pop it out and pop a new one in). I've had a few dell's in the past without issue, but I guess like everything they start putting cheaper parts in them to boost profit. Maybe this is a good thing Aggie, you'll finally have a Dell that works! (hopefully!)
