"Maximale Anzahl VPS je Host-Server	15"

Maximale Anzahl VPS je Host-Server
Um Ihnen die optimale, garantierte Performance bieten zu können,  
existieren bei unseren VPS Paketen pro Hardware-Node maximal 15 VPS  
bei den Produkten VPS L-XXL 3.0, bzw. 12 VPS bei den Produkten VPS MAX  

Does that mean max 15 virtual servers for our disposal ?
Or that mean that hardware can handle 15 virtual servers and only 1 is  
ours ?

I think specs looks good.

I suggest use Debian and Ubuntu over Suse.
I personaly prefer Debian for server as it's more stable environment  
than Ubuntu.
In my opinion Ubuntu is better use for workstation - less stable, more  
frequently updates.
