    Need a new server
    Hello All

    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

    Dedicated server:
    Pros:
    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)

    Cons:
    Dearer (both server and cpanel licence)
    Not scalable
    No redundancy with only 1 box.

    Cloud:
    Pros:
    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

    Cons:
    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

    thanks
    Luke
