I'm about to start a website on a shoestring, so I'm looking to get
the most bang for my buck in terms of hardware. I will be running this
site on a linux cluster with mysql and there will be lots of reads
from the DB and not so many writes.
For various reasons, I have to create my own 'datacenter' so can't use
other provider so please don't suggest that :-). I'm thinking I'll
start with maybe 5-6 or so machines and add to it as necessary.
So has anyone done studies on what is most cost effective? ...
