@lyncia @thufie agreed. Hence the colo instead of a VPS.

Plus, I can just throw hardware at it and not increase my monthlies. Hard to get a VPS for what my rent is (under $100/mo), given what I have running (16 Xeon cores across two chips, 72GB DDR3 ECC, 4TB disk, 10Mbps 95th-percentile on a gigabit connection).

@lyncia @thufie but I admit my privilege; I know people who work at the telecom that operates the colo, I have the capital to invest upfront in a machine, and I have transportation to get such a thing to the facility.

VPSen are easy and popular for good reason.
