sounds good - as for RIPE blocks .. i've seen a section in the manager for RIPE but nothing was clear on how you get one.

Hello,

If you're going to be running something like Hyper-v or Proxmox/vmware on an mSP server (or any other that virtualisation is realistic for), i take it for each VM to have a public address you're going to be ordering and using failover IP's for that purpose?

seems obvious but wanted to be sure!
