That’s it, we are definitively
changing hosting providers ASAP. After investigating the market and
making a few calls yesterday I came to the conclusion that we are going
to migrate to a combination of these guys: Hostway, Rackspace and Value Web. We are not going to go for a colocation solution at this stage because we don’t have a webmaster.
think we will possibly distribute the applications; host the photo
servers with Hostway (which is the cheapest) and the database and web
servers with Rackspace which is more expensive but gives much better
software support. Web server load balancing will be done on a DNS
level, al least for the moment.
