Trying to sort out the way to go

I am tyring to sort out the way to go with database choices on an NT server..I'll be running ASP apps developed in UltraDev.

I understand that Access will overload quickly. I plan to use this thing rather robustly. 5Gb of transfer per month, and 1000 users per day, minimum

I'd like to use MySQL, if I could find a decent host for NT. Any suggesstions?

If I have to use SQL Server, what do I need to use to do the database configuration? I don't want to serve off my local machine, I just want to configure the beast, and serve off the NT host. How much will it cost?

Or should I just go back to Unix and use UltraDev ColdFusion/MySQL

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

Someone else who may have similar requirements to you gave me the heads-up on your post. I have a couple of thoughts that may help, but I need a couple more details.

1) Where are you looking to host? I know a good UK hosting company that specialises in NT servers. Not a lot of good for US traffic though :)

2) How far along are you with the UltraDev asp apps? If you haven't invested too much, and your requirements match what we can offer, we may be able to help you out. Depends on what you're trying to achieve really. If you want some more details, e-mail/StickyMail me with some info on what you're looking to do
