I second and third that! All nodes should have SSD in a RAID-10. The performance is awesome!

We go with Intel for almost of our Servers. The best performance we get on VMware.

For start up VPS hosts, I will always recommend something along the lines of the following:

16-32GB RAM
4x1TB HDD's
(optional) 1x128GB SSD for Flashcache
1Gbit Port

Something along the lines of that will serve well, and also be future proof.

Another option could also be a Dual E5-2620 with 64GB RAM if you really want to go up, and have the budget.
I maybe would increase the RAM to 64-128GB. Processor is good and storage looks acceptable depending on configuration. if using raid i dont think 1tb would be sufficient for the amount of customers you will need to make the server viable. Then we are in the realms of overselling

Quote we have a few opteron based server and until now they worked very nicely, The only downside is the giver energy consumption but usually its compensated by higher density as with 8-16 core you can house more user, Intel is stil begin cheep on cpu core count, Surely intel do offer (if i down remember wrong) a 20 core processor but that cost a pile of cash to buy.

For us, we utilize:

- Dual Intel Xeon E5-2620 v2
- 4X 3TB HDD with LSI-9271 4i + BBU
- SSD caching to boost the performance
- 10Gbps Uplink Port for each VPS node

The performance is awesome, and all of our customers are satisfied with it. I suggested to everyone who is going to provide VPS service to take this as a reference.
