I saw that, yeh. Applies to everyone else (especially if you have
experience of evaluating hosting).

Was that before this lot were added btw?


We'll need SLAs? to cover most of the eventualities, but of particular

*	HardwareFailure?
*	PowerFailure?
*	SoftwareFailure? - this would not only have to cover
vendor-supplied packages, such as CF or ChiliASP?, but also our own
bespoke applications, such as the CMS and MG - WilliamAnderson
*	BackUps? - frequency and speed of rolling back to a backup
*	UpTime? - especially if we are paying for hosting
*	ResponseTimes?
*	Servermonitoring
*	Hours of support - 24x7x365?
*	Method of support - telephone, email, trouble ticket

SLAs? must not be changeable unilaterally


* How are the boxes isolated from the outside world?
* Physical security? How many people (and who) will have physical access
to the boxes?

In Return...

What are we prepared to offer in return?
