So I'm pricing out virtual dedicated servers. I'm looking to support about 500 to 1,000 (peak) visits a day spread across 5 different web sites. And 2 of those sites will have SQL databases with a fairly light load on them. My bandwidth usage is pretty low -- usually under 10GB/month.
I'm leaning towards orcsweb because of all the services they provide as a part of the package (daily backups, triple redundant OC12's, 24-Hour Monitoring, firewall, etc). Plus I've heard good things.
I believe their cheapest virtual dedicated package includes everything I need for $100/month. The one thing I'm unsure about is the 1GB of RAM.
Is 1GB RAM enough for a Windows 2008 Server with SQL Express 2008 for my purposes?
