What is a good base configuration in terms of ram, processor, etc for a Windows VPS accoutn that will primarily be used to host asp.net 1.1 and 2.0 apps? Most apps are just standard data access, entry,reporting style with little heavy processing. Using
Infragistics controls as well.
VPS will probably laos be running Plesk to handle DNS, FTP, Email services, alogn with IIS. SQL Server will msot likely be hosted on another server, however may want SQL Express on it as well as an option.
Any thoughts on min ram and total sites this would support?

The minimum that you want to start with is around 384 MB but to be safe you are better starting at 512 MB (150 sites). Depending on how you work the application pools etc you can probably run 200-300 sites on 1 GB. Take my advice and stay off plesk if you
can. Go for something like dot net panel which is a lot more suitable for Windows Hosting.
I wouldn't load on SQL Express either if you can avoid it as this will take up quite a bit of overhead even running just a few databases.
Hope that helps.
