How are these guys doing $29/mo "dedicated server"? What's the catch?
They say it's a Xeon 3040 1.9GHz, so that's older/slower, but say I don't
need speed. RAM 2G is anemic but doable if I don't need much RAM.
Doesn't say ECC or not, so that's one possible catch (but usually
Xeon==ECC). No RAID, that sucks, maybe it can be added as a cheap
upgrade? Network looks very good.
Anyhow, that's 10-20X less than Rackspace wants for ded server. How are
they doing this? Is there some VM or blade-ish thing going on here? Is
it really a 1U box (or possibly even smaller form) somewhere just for me?
