Hi All

I appreciate that doing it may well be the best way to find out, but as it sounds expensive, I concluded I'd be better off asking in this fine forum

Essentially, if one where running a nextag, hubpages or ehow what would one one need hardware wise for smooth operation,

I remember imdb before Amazon, and that was a dire experience, but the content kept me there

I assume that a single dedicated server would not do, plus might one require a specially broad pipe to the web.

I am also partial to iis7 with mysql or ms sql server

IIS and mysql play fine - I do it all the time.

are you wondering how to spread load?

Actually, I am just trying to figure out what certain target sites for me are spending on hosting their sites

I do run IIS an mysql on shared and vps an its great, but I am seeking to abandon the web services consumption aspect of my sites cos I can't get them to run at comparable speed to a properly resourced db/harddrive system

even on vps , mysql performance begins to degrade seriously beyond 400mb, and the load on the server is at maximum ,
