I'm trying to consolidate all my accounts from all my reseller hosting into one server. They are about 100+ serious business brochure/catalog and portfolio sites with minimal traffic but uses fairly high amount of disk space. Now I'm deciding whether to get a XEN-PV (RAID10 HDD, 4vCPU Xeon, 4gb RAM) or a Dedicated Server (Software RAID1 HDD, 4Cores i5-2400, 8gb RAM)? Which do you think would best suit my needs?
The only factor that confuses me is the HDD RAID. I'm not sure whether it can handle my cPanel + Cloudlinux + Varnish Cache planned setup and whether it is stable enough. Please tell me your opinions and suggestions below.
Also, I'm alright to move now with this environment since I can have better control with the server and I have a bigger room for growth. Fortunately, I have enough budget for this and I've already sorted out who the providers will be as well as the sysAdmin company. So, that leaves me the hardware concerns.
Thanks for your time
