Yesterday, I had my host, bytemark, upgrade my linux virtual machine from 64MB to 192MB memory. While the 64MB one is more than adequate for a normal apache churning away at pages including a webserver, Plone is more of a memory hog.
My brother has a plain-Zope site, which ran OK. But Plone adds a lot on top of zope (which I like), but that comes at a price.
What I gathered from an email I got as a reply on my upgrade request was that bytemark had to add a few machines before they could upgrade mine. That's a nice problem to have and it shows they're doing well. Till now (two months) I'm happy with them. "Linux virtual machine"-based hosting apparently is a very good idea :-)
