You can get a hostname added to your DNS with EMBC to point to your Moodle. It is not about setting up a sub domain but a Fully Qualified Domain Name for a host. All you need to do is ask for an A record to be set up to point to the public IP you have had allocated to that server. If you are not getting anywhere with the Servicedesk then speak to your LA as they are the best people to help advise you.

Depends upon the number of concurrent users really:
Installing Moodle - MoodleDocs
Disk space: 160MB free (min). You will require more free space to store your teaching materials.
Memory: 256MB (min), 1GB (recommended). The general rule of thumb is that Moodle can support 50 concurrent users for every 1GB of RAM, but this will vary depending on your specific hardware and software combination.
This includes hosting limits of PHP or MySQL on a hosting service.
The capacity can limit the number of users your Moodle site can handle. See User site capacities
I think 60GB will be too small if it is used. were using 150+GB on moodle to date

60GB will be OK for a short time to start with (depends how fast use of your VLE takes off). It's fairly easy with Linux to add another drive, mount it somewhere temporarily, copy over the moodledocs area and then remount it as moodledocs. Just keep an eye on the remaining space (df -v) on the drives and then provision more space as needed. If you can thin provision for your VM discs or SAN LUN's though, you might as well give it a reasonable size to start with.

^ yes I agree. 60B will be fine to start with. Since it's a VM adding a disk will be very easy, you can move all the data over to a new partition without rebooting

Good Morning all,
60 GB is 3x what fronter had, but I will report back to the higher powers that it may not be enough. Thank you for the pointer
dook : I will also mention the dns record to him, as I don't deal with embc (*points finger at single status*)
any ideas why the page isn't displaying correctly?
