Hello Mark,
I would like to do it myself but not to the limit of pulling off my
hair. We are a small group with limited resources.

I think I know what you mean by "very mixed" experience. Infact, I have
also had my own bitter experience trying to get support for a particular
brand of hardware from the so-called experts in the field.

Uptime and availability is not a big issue. So, I think I can live with
DIY software so long as I can manage.
