Hi,

The majority of the issues we've been having have been due to poor hardware from Softlayer, with drives being installed that already have errors and extremely poor support when something goes wrong.

Investigations on this server are also showing a drive issue. Needless to say we are not going to be using Softlayer for future servers and will be seeking another provider in Dallas.

Anyone affected by this will be credited as per our SLA.

I am on us7 and have been for about 2 months. I am extremely disappointed with the uptime and am starting a search for a new host. After reading so many great reviews about them I am shocked. This is my fist time doin a reseller so imagine my horror after only 2 months and having this much down time. I also had other downtime when my Name servers where installed wrong (I don't control that) and when my ssl was mis configured. I ended up trouble shooting both and informing them. I do agree support is pretty fast but that can only go so far.

if the problems have been due to poor hardware from Softlayer and support is poor, I think it's best to transfer accounts to another server in another datacenter, it is important that the problem is solved permanently.

EZPZ's support has been outstanding. They are beyond helpful when it comes to helping set everything up. There are a few hiccups with their VPS reseller program (the OS templates are a little outdated and the server specs don't match what's advertised, even after I called it to their attention), but downtime notwithstanding, my experience has been very positive overall.

I can sympathize with them if they're getting bad hardware from Softlayer. This is surprising, since I always thought Softlayer to be one of the high-end providers themselves. But if they're installing bad hardware, there's little EZPZ can do.

I still think that EZPZ offers the best overall value -- again, downtime notwithstanding. They've got the perfect combination of Litespeed / end-user support / great speeds / cPanel extras / WHM extras / price. I can't say I'm ready to bail just yet, but if this keeps up, I certainly will be.

The best support in the world is nothing if my sites keep going down every other week. I haven't opened for business yet and I don't look forward to having to switch everyone to a new DC / provider in month #2. I really hope they can get this permanently fixed ASAP.

I understand Dan't point but As an end customer, I am not concerned if they get bad server or hardware from their vendors or datacenter. I am also not a big fan of of SLA where the credit is only for the time when the service was down..

If its problem about softlayer why you not transferred dc?At least You think about all customer of you and yours customers-customer you get bad reputation means we also get bad reputation from our client .what we say to our client?

As per your SLA i maybe get 4 month payment from ezpz cause:
June 99.67%
Jully 99.72%
OCtober 99.67%
December 97.77%
if you really sent then i will open a ticket.

The SLA states if the service drops below 99.9% uptime you get a whole month free.

We're going to. We're already researching and talking to a few providers and clients will be notified once we've tested a few to make sure they're stable.

I think you are at a good place now.

The downtime can happen anywhere. It's looks like they know what the issue is and in the process of correcting it.

Occasional downtime can happen anywhere but when it is happening so frequently, anybody will be concerned and looking for a better option..

People are going to moan but it needs to be said...

EZPZ were great, I've been with them for nearly 3 years. This past year (from February 2011) they have started to drift with regular outages. I queried this with ezpz but they kind of dismissed it.
They announced a server migration at the end July to a much higher spec box due to poor server performance that took over a week, with me having to shout for details, request new ssl, whmcs licence etc.
Great performance but outages continued.

Then the great s**t storm of our time began - UK2 server dropped off the net for 42 hrs.
They rebuilt it on an older server after restores from R1Soft failed.
This was pointed out in their forum afterwards along with how their uptime stats claimed to be 100% but how could that be, even excluding anything else, with 42hrs sleepytime on one occasion?
They then fessed up and said the pingdom monitors were pointing at an old server!!!

As compensation for those affected, I have taken up the offer of 6 months free hosting.

Like others here I'm now looking at other options - I'll be buying my own whmcs licence as that will allow a wider range of partners, do I go vps or stay on reseller (bear in mind that I really don't use 70% of my current package) but it's not an easy choice to make.

Where to go from here...?

I've signed with Hawk Host and change the accounts of users who asked me to switch servers.

I kept some accounts in ezpz to see if service improves.
