i install and customize a self made application for web pages which uses spring+jstl and the admin uses flex. Also i want to add to my offers an ecommerce cms, so i have decided to start with magento.

I'm using daily razor vps, however i was thinking in switching to linode because of the price. My questions are:

1.- Is linode good for magento ?
2.- is linode good for java+tomcat+jstl+mysql apps ?
3.- What are the most demanding resources to magento ? CPU ? RAM ? Does it consumes more if i have more products?

Well i hope to learn from you, this page is always so helpful

UPDATE: A final question:

4.- Do you recomend another vps service for my requieriments ?

Hi Ernest, have you tried Magento on Linode now? How is? – Fred Collins Nov 22 '11 at 0:49

I haven't used magneto, but I do use several linode VPSs, and have found them to be excellent with powerful cpus and fast IO.

Linode prorates to the day, so you can easily get a server for a few days to do some testing and see if it meets your requirements.
