comment Is brand-name NAS overpriced?
For comparison, I can get a big case (Full tower), standard motherboard and processor, RAID card, 10 WD Green 2TB drives and turn it into a good network storage box using FreeNAS or equivalent software for under $1000; or you can get a Drobo Pro with the rack mount kit for about $1300.

comment How do you deal with server noise? Hearing loss?
Hearing damage occurs with long term exposure to at least 85 dB. I don't know of any computer than will create such a loud sound continuously; also, you can't say it adds up with many servers around you, as sound pressure is not additive.

comment Co-location vs. cloud hosting
@RainyRat, what is the cloud host you looked into? Some are extremely expensive if you don't pre-pay and reserve a VPS (ala AWS, GoGrid), while others are reasonable.

2-3 months is the expected time for production. Installation will be done via a Python script.

comment Why do hosts prefer Linux to Windows Server?
DCC, I think your are lost in the FAT & DOS era of Windows. Also, cPanel for Windows being new is a moot argument, as are most X is new, it's not so good because it's new. I've seen new stuff being much better than older more mature stuff.

I didn't say appropriate for anything, just low-usage stuff. Databases are easily managed through the GUI and do fine for low usage.
