Comment: Re:Disk Space Scrooges (Score 1) 71

Something to note is that you often get what you pay for regarding disk space at hosting companies. A hosting company can easily match your above specs, but you'll get a 60GB IDE/33 drive and 40GB of transfer on one of the worst backbones. If these things do not matter, then it is indeed what you are looking for.

I work for BSDHosting.net and the reason that we are not giving away 60GB of disk for $49 on our VPS systems is because we use high performance hardware that would make it unfeasible. U320 15kRPM drives riding on high-end RAID cards keeps our systems running extremely quick, but it comes at a price.

60GB doesn't lend itself well to a VPS product. You should probably just assemble the hardware yourself and find somebody to colo it with in your area.

If it's not in the computer, it doesn't exist.
