    RE: vpn or what?
    Another option is logmein.com. If your primarily worried about windows boxes, you can install the log me in agent and then remote in from the website. No firewall holes. No VPN. It's a simple management console and works very well. So so sure it if works for linux yet. I use it and it works well for my windows box... then I ssh or vnc to my linux box. *I don't work for them... it's just a nice tool.

    RE: Hardware RAID and recommended controllers
    If you don't mind... throw up a post and let us know what you decided on! It's always neat to see how projects turn out.

    RE: server virtualization
    YES! Using the free vm options available to you, you can easily create those machines. I'm running five (two apache, one mysql, one file and backup, one dns/dhcp/monitoring) in VMServer. The key... RAM allocation is important. I've got 4GB of ram on that, and I've allocated 1.5GB to mysql, and 512 to each of the other VMs. I get decent performance. YMMV You can get a great box (dual core) with 4GB RAM for cheap now-a-days. You shouldn't need much more than that if you aren't pushing the virtual boxes that much.

But, if you're looking for something to present iSCSI LUNS to ESX, XEN, or even a CIFS file share for a business, it should be backed by a good hardware RAID card. Openfiler can stripe across block level disks, but it's still a software RAID.

    RE: Hardware RAID and recommended controllers
    3ware products have always seemed to have great Linux support. They also support a command line interface (great for perl or bash processing). Additionally, I believe the driver will log errors (drive failures and such) to syslog or /var/log/messages. With a file watcher, or splunk, you can easily trap the error and notify.
