It may also host a website, but mostly it will be running a few apaches, tomcat and the DBs mentioned above. Something like 200GB disk, 6GB RAM, and a quad core cpu. OS-wise, CentOS or something would be fine. And I need a fixed IP with ssh access. Uptime needs to be 24/7

Also, I get the impression the cheaper ones are going to only give me a little slice of CPU, I don't want to be ripped off with the more expensive ones. Could people give me a ballpark figure of what they are paying, or better still recommend some providers for quotes?
