Hello Jeff,

many webhosts can accomodate your requirements.

Are you certain about the 10 GB of diskspace? that seems awlful high to go along with 10 GB of transfer.

Look for a provider specializing in application hosting.

Medialayer might be agood place to start.

hope this helps...

Well, typically a web host would have a clause in their TOS that clients are responsible for their own backups - therefore, I am not certain a lawsuit would get you anywhere, even if there was a ROI for the lawsuit.

Do you actually need that many resources?

Honestly, for that many resources, you should look at a VPS plan or even a small dedicated server.

Hello ahevans,

By a sure "load" point of view, you should probably be ok with 1 web server and 1 db server (dual xeons with 2-4 GB RAM) should suffice.

However, from an availability standpoint, obviously load balancing web and even DB would certainly yield greater redundancy and availability.
