Thread Thinking about starting a DBISAM/ElevateDB hosting service

Looking for opinions on the pricing.

1)  Internet access to a DBISAM server
2)  Internet access to a VM running XP Pro for as many DBISAM servers and any other internet related services needed.
3)  Internet access to a ElevateDB server
4)  Internet access to a VM running XP Pro for as many ELevate servers and any other internet related services needed.

Bandwidth wouldn't be an issue at first.  Individual IP addresses for each account.

Just wondering what others have charged for just the server functionality and I'm wondering how much more people would be willing to pay for
access to the whole XP environment to run web apps and other needed tidbits as well.

Your thoughts?

I'am in the middle of doing that got the premises got
the racks and boxes the cissco kid my partner went
and got a good job. I have noticed however that the
guys who did do Firebird and DBisam hosting + IW
hosting socket servers and so on dont last very long.

I figured out that the big boys with volume license deals
from M$ have an advantage. VPS is the way to go
however.
Prices well some say you get this some say you get
that and its all BS someone has to pay for the bandwith
so be careful. Check out these http://www.a2b2.com/hosting/vps
I notice the lowest price plan does 2 ip's and 400gb pm
Its the one I have for testing stuff. Would you be able
to compete with that price ?
I got in on the ground floor and never go over my bandwith
and I pay 90 + vat pa what would a remote colo cost.
I would have to buy the server. Say 800 inc VAT
The OS. Win 2003 Standard 631.64 inc VAT
Then the rack rent around 25 pm x 12 = 300
Total Setup cost 1st year 1,700 +
Best buy some bluestock now while the markets are
weak and watch the 1700 grow without the
hassle.
