Oh, alright.

I'd be willing to pay a small premium over that for a similarly configured Illumos zone (OpenIndiana or OmniOS would both be fine).  I'm on an older plan that they don't seem to offer anymore, but for $12/month with Interserver you get 1 virtual core, 0.75GB RAM, 50GB disk, 6Mbps (1.8TB/month).  To be honest, I'm surprised there aren't more low cost Illumos-based options out there.

Hmm, I see. I think I could implement a better solution than Entic.

Well, that is what I'm asking! =)
