Oh. That's Actually... Affordable

As I've mentioned before, I may have an opportunity to move from expensive hosted servers to cheaper managed colo.  A rack-mount server with 6 cores, 16GB of RAM, 6TB of disk and a nice SSD can be had for well under US$2000, which is currently about A$2000 as well (though the Aussie dollar has recently dipped back below parity).

Only problem is that many of the mu.nu sites and other related things run under CPanel, which I license through our hosting company.  I'd need to buy my own licenses, and the last time I looked it was quite expensive.

Now it's $200 per year for an unlimited-user virtual server license.  Since I virtualised all our systems 18 months ago, that's perfect.

So plans are moving ahead.  Slowly perhaps, but definitely moving.
