I talked about a project I was working on at the last LUG meeting to get some services of mine moved out of my house and into a “real” datacenter. My thought was to lock down my home network, and have a server at a CoLo facility or in a datacenter to host my mail, web, subversion, and associated services I use on the road. This project quickly changed as I realized the cost of putting a server in a data rack somewhere. So in order to facilitate my own desire to get this stuff moved over, and not wanting to pay a alot of money for a whole server that will sit idle most of the time, I decided to start my own Community Xen hosting project.
The guys at xen-hosting.org have a great template layed out and I’m excited to get this into action soon!
