I don't have a dedicated server, it's VPS so I'm already running on a virtual server. This expands that across multiple machines. For example how many times have you heard the story of a site going viral and it goes down? If your the host you really have no choice but pulling the plug on site like that because it's disrupting every one else on that server. That can't or shouldn't happen under this system. I'll even be able to scale stuff up for short periods if I wanted too, for example when Coalcast comes back if I don't have enough bandwidth for it I can scale it up for the short period of time I need it.
As it is right now I need a plan that is going to meet my needs during peak traffic, it's not very efficient for either me or the host because most of the time you have hardware sitting around not being utilized.
