We are seeking a long-term reliable host providing either secure colocation capacity (6RU minimum), or access to multiple VMs on a reliable cloud computing platform. Scoop consumes a moderate level of bandwidth in the range of several terabytes a month and would need access to a minimum of 19mbs bandwidth. Scoop would acknowledge the provider of hosting services as a significant sponsor.
