    Off the top of my head an older Intel Xeon E3-1230v1 Sandy Bridge is as fast as Dual Intel Xeon E5620 Westmere EP which is probably faster than the Dual Intel Xeon L5630 due to higher clock speeds - 2.4Ghz vs 2.13Ghz base and 2.66Ghz vs 2.4Ghz Turbo Boost. So in overall performance a 2nd generation Xeon E3-1245v2 Ivy Bridge based cpu which is already faster than same clocked E3-1200v1 equivalent, would be faster than Intel Xeon E3-1230v1.

    Of course depends on work load/usage involved too - if you have usage which uses more multi-threaded work loads, then having 16 cpu threads might be better than limited to 8 cpu threads.

    How simple is it to upgrade to 8G? Is there a long downtime?
    With rackspace, you can't resize the server, you have to make an image and replicate it on another new server.

    Don't know, didn't try that option on Linode.

    Resizing my 2GB Linode to 4GB Linode took ~15 minutes of downtime :D

    Wow. Didn't expect that long.
    I was thinking 2-3 minutes would be acceptable.
    In any case, I'm seriously considering a 8GB (or even 16GB) SSD server. They have a location in NJ and it's cheaper than what I'm paying for Rackspace now.

    15 min ain't long TBH

    As you can create Linode's from existing Linode snapshots, you can even spin up a 2nd Linode and restore at that moment created snapshot to the 2nd linode and switch DNS to the copy while the live gets upgraded :)
