I can't make claims on behalf of the other servers on offer, but the Fen Systems server is a real (not virtual) server to which we will have root access. It has 100Mbit connection, several GB of space and is hosted in Docklands, close to LINX. It would be preferable to have at least two servers, to add some redundancy - I think the Debian server had similar connectivity etc.?
The Debian machine is my machine, so yes it's real and I have root etc. It's on a 100Mbit LAN, but is currently limited to 20Mbit/s which it occasionally bumps into, but is generally only (I say only ;-) pushing out about 4.5Mbit/s
so there's plenty of headroom.
It's got loads of disk space (over 30GB spare).
The only real down side is that it's on un-RAIDed IDE drives, so hardware failures would hurt a bit --- it is backed up to tape daily though.
P.S. Please can someone add email@example.com to the list of valid from addresses for this list.
