Well, at Hetzner in Nuernberg you can rent an EQ8 for EUR89/month. It comes with bandwidth, 1.5Tb software RAID, 24Gb RAM and a EUR149 setup cost. That's an Intel Core i7, so 2.6GHz quad core plus hyper-threading, meaning 4 to 8 concurrent processes. I've got four of the slightly smaller EQ4 running as backend mailservers handling up to about 3000 concurrent SMTP connections per box. Is that what you call a popular level? -- Per Jessen, Zürich (8.9°C) -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
