I have a few sites, but most do very little traffic. My main site can see upwards of a million pageviews per month or more.
I've been offered the following:
- 3.5GHz Quad-Core E5-1620 v3 Haswell Xeon
- 64GB DDR4
- 480GB Intel S3500 SSD + 2TB SATA
- 500Mbps Unmetered
- 50GB Cloud Storage
Is this a good move? For similar pricing they would offer (2) 1 TB SATA in a RAID.
How would you advise setting this up? Also, what's the smartest and cost effective backup plan? They offer 50GB of cloud storage, but automated backups come at a $39 per month fee.
I should note that this new server would also represent a significant cost savings.
