The relation with your box provider is very important and I fully
understand that's a key choice. You don't choose your server only based
on price and technical specs.

I pointed out Kimsufi (OVH) boxes for their low cost because they allow
to split services between hosts instead of having all in a big expensive
server. Smaller boxes with dedicated CPU and unlimited bandwidth. For
example one for forums, one for wiki, etc. Maybe it's an option you
didn't consider for pricing reason.

I'm feeling that you (and probably Pierre too) are more confident with
Hetzner service. Remember that Online.net has a challenging offer which
may interest you if we want diversify or we need a real unlimited
bandwidth, which come with higher storage (like backup or ...).

I share your feeling with the HW RAID, but you could request to
disabling it and use the raid card as an HBA. What I do on this box.
