    @aronjay

    I would like to hear some suggestions for this hosting package..

    currently targeting 100 blogs only as this will be used for a private network..

    WPMU+BP

    so will this be enough?

    20Gb storage, 400gb bandwidth, 256mb ram..?

    for 100 blogs…?

    EDIT: I will also install 3 wordpress.org…(just for small portals)

    256mb ram is not a lot – but it will probably still work ok.

    how about the 1Gb slice at slicehost.com?

    1gb ram, 40gb storage, 400gb bandwidth, $70?? -20 for MediaTemple..

    will it work?

    thank you.

    I prefer Slicehost over MediaTemple. Given your stated requirements, a 1GB slice will work fine. You\’d probably even be okay with a 512 slice. In fact, you can start with 512 and upgrade if you find it is insufficient.

    By the way, here is a Slicehost forum thread you may find useful: http://forum.slicehost.com/comments.php?DiscussionID=1082&page=1#Item_0

    It really depends not on the amount of blogs you are running, but rather server activity. 1 busy blog can pump out more activity than 100 “somewhat” busy blogs. I like slicehost as well, but you become the admin (non-managed). Really, either MT or slicehost allows you to “upgrade” to larger resources when needed, so start small on either one and upgrade as needed.
