read this before you consider EXODUS
http://fnews.yahoo.com/street/99/09/01/valley_990901.html Already there are signs that Exodus' relations with some high-profile clients are in jeopardy. Service problems are serious enough that they've generated high-level tensions between Exodus and online auctioneer eBay (Nasdaq:EBAY - news) , one of Exodus' largest and most prominent customers, according to two people familiar with the situation. In the past few weeks, eBay has been in talks with several Exodus competitors for a new contract to move a portion of its Web servers to a new vendor, the sources say. Exodus Chief Executive Ellen Hancock says its relationship with eBay is in good shape. eBay spokesman Kevin Pursglove declined to say whether it was mulling a move of its primary Web servers but says that a top priority is to figure out where to house a key backup system.
