Thank you for your reply! I'm aware of all the issues you've mentioned. I'm just thinking of doing business lawfully from home but waiving the expensive data center "housing" costs from the start. I don't really see any sense behind putting up a server and baring data center housing + other related costs just to have a handful of subscribers using the hosting service.
An alternative is to go for a reseller solution which am considering right now but even there, one is conditioned to the extent that you cannot beat the competition where providers are offering unlimited bandwidth, diskspace etc. etc.to end users. So you see why my initial question.
Does server virtualization make any difference in the number of users, bandwith consumption and service delivery speed?
Does cloud computing play any important or strategic role in this case?
Again thank you.
Merry christmas and happy new year!
