Hi Dinis

We certainly can offer management with that. What storage backend do you
currently use with MediaWiki? If its MySQL 5, a cluster can very easily be
configured with simultaneous read/write on both nodes.

We can offer you the following:

- E6600 CPU (2 x 2.4GHz Cores, 4MB L2 Cache)
- 4GB DDR2 RAM
- 2 x 500GB SATA HDD (Seagates with 16MB Cache)
- 3Ware Hardware Raid (configured in RAID1 with the above drives)
- 100Mbps switch port
- 500GB Monthly Transfer
- Managed

The cost of the above would be £120 + VAT setup and then £230 + VAT per
month. We have basically thrown in the management for free.

We build systems based on the tyan transport barebones chassis and believe
they are the best quality machines money can buy. The server would be
located in Redbus Meridian Gate and connected to our network (AS39326) on a
100Mbps fully burstable port, I am also happy to throw in a free 1Gbps port
upgrade due to you being OWASP.


There is an option of a managed hardware firewall also, this is £120 + VAT
setup and £45 + VAT per month.


Let me know if you have any thoughts.

Regards

Dan
