I don't comment on my company much, I mainly come here for help since I administer a Fusion forum for a client with nobody that can (an association, and I'm trying to train some but then one quits, have get another volunteer, start over, and so it goes-but they are my largest client (multiple sites) so I do it for them.
But I just had to mention that as of this week-end or by Tues at latest we have have completed our system wide upgrade and all shared servers will be dual Quad Core Xeon with min. 8GB ECC memory and SCSI RAID O with daily/weekly/monthly backups--screamers.
Just a good step for us in this economy to be upgrading to at least dual-quads. They don't have them yet but next year they are supposed to have dual 8 cores! Then the problem will be enough ports to deliver content at that speed (and the price) but technology is marching on.
I think the dual-quad core level will be a very good "standard" for quite some time. Just had to add a pat on the back for us and mention that no host should act like Fusion is a huge deal --it's not. Hosting it is easy the one client I have that I admin it for uses very little resources (more visitors, photos, sidebars, shoutboxes and all that) and STILL uses less resources than a basic Free forum I have on the same server with only 1/2 the capabilities.
It's very efficient and user friendly.
