I recently moved about 6 sites from a dedicated server to "the cloud". This being a virtualized CentOS with limited RAM and HD space.
These sties are mostly static, but some are Wordpress based. All the sites get very minimal traffic < 100 page views / per day each.
The server has only 512MB of RAM, as you can see from the screen-shot usage is low.
We don't expect any of the sites to "explode" with traffic, several may get 1000+ page views per day when they release new products, but this will only last for 2-3 days at most.
- Do you think I can get away with this minimum set up?
- Should I run some bench marking tools to determine the limits? If so, any suggestions?
NB: This cloud hosting solution is an order of magnitude cheaper than the dedicated (and managed) server. (Admittedly at an expensive hosting provider)
