Hi all server geeks.
It has been refreshing to find some local HK people who can walk and talk the geek speak. Though i will admit eldson, Mr Moo and hk.com can generally go way over my head!
Here is the go:
I currently run a small on the side webhosting company out of VPS in the US.
I have been toying with the idea of setting up a dedicated server and adding Xen or Virtuozzo and reselling plans in HK, essentially a step up from what i presently have - a VPS.
I have a few friends who run small businesses that have a night mare of a backup policy - ie they dont or they do and leave the backup usb drive a foot from the computer and never take it home.
Which brings me to my next idea of offering small time off site storage in conjunction with the VPS plans.
While the US is obviously very cheap for VPS and dedicated plans i wonder if i can get something comparable here. I was thinking HK hosted since the off site storage speeds might be better for local businesses.
Suggest companies? Thoughts on HK speeds?
As an aside - i would like to make up a vps server at home to use a development machine - any second hand servers going - many a beer will be bought n return!
