Need a new server

- Jan 2015
Im part of a small hosting/web development company
For the last 8-10 years we have had a server with Layered Tech in the US (upgraded a few times but other than that stable)
Last month we got a letter stating that we had 2 months to move as they were no longer doing small level hosting!
Need to move ASAP and need to find a solution.
Current server is running Cent OS 6.6 and Cpanel
on an AMD Opteron 246 with 4gb of ram and dual 80GB HDs.
It does the job just fine with low loads most of the time.
Looking to move to an Australian host as its much better value now than when we previously looked.
Looking at either an entry level dedicated server again or maybe going to a "cloud" server.
Seems to be pros and cons for both
Fast hardware (overkill)
plenty of storage space (overkill)
Included data generally seems to be greater
Cant be influenced by others.
Run dual drives for quick backups (with external backups as well)
Dearer (both server and cpanel licence)
No redundancy with only 1 box.
Cheaper to get started (but less value)
cheap cpanel licences
Should be reliable and redundant with the right host
Technically hardware should always remain up to date and reliable.
Easier "complete" backups
Data can get expensive
Drive space is expensive
Less CPU power included by default (but can be upgraded on the fly)
Im sure I'm missing more points.
Any suggestions or advice?
Looking at hosts like pacific digital or oz servers, open to suggestions
Hoping to spend around $200 per month
