$0 (convenient perk, eh?) If I actually had to pay for all the resources I
use (approx. 18 servers, at least two-thirds run 24x7, half dozen
sub-admins, multiple networks in multiple data centers plus Cloud Files
[S3-type storage],) my wife would kill me.

The last time I actually looked at pricing (probably a year ago) it seemed
like most vendors were fairly close, price-wise. I also saw that if
Vendor A was more pricy then Vendor B, it was only because Vendor B was
nickel & diming you for everything that Vendor A includes.
At any rate, we have our complete pricing online and a cost estimator. If
you sign up for our 14-day free trial, you can hit me up directly for any
