So at the moment we are using this machine as our primary database server:
Sadly, our hoster is not offering advanced disk setup. Now we have two options
1. buying a server on our own and renting a co-location.
I fear we do not know enough about hardware to vote for this option. I think
for co-locating your own server one should have more knowledge about hardware.
2. renting a server from a hoster with an advanced disk setup.
Can anybody recommend a good hosting solution in germany with a good disk
setup for postgresql?
