    Thumbs up 8 year review of Steadfast Networks

    8 year review :: Dedicated server customer with Steadfast Networks

    1. Price: Highly competitive (after one experiences the extra value received in SFN support, price in not an issue)

    2. Setup: 24-48 hrs (in stock), SFN/client communication through-out the process is excellent

    3. Replacement Turnaround: We have logged 3 hardware failures in 8 years :: (2) instances of HDD failure (RAID 1) and (1) instance of a hardware RAID card. SFN support team's attention to replacement scheduling and notification of progress/completion was flawless, more so, my involvement was minimal and "worry free".

    4. Network Uptime: I have yet to log any downtime via our ded srv with SFN (ded srv located at CHI DC - chi0). I'm not saying SFN hasn't experienced downtime in my 8 years with them. My measurement scale for up-time is via my client base communication regarding website accessibility issues.

    5. Support: This is where SFN completely BLOWS AWAY all my other providers (and yes, I do have a few other providers...I do not keep all my eggs in one basket)

    Thank you Karl Z and the SFN team for 8 years of service!!!

    Excellent. We've been with them for around 3 years now and have few hundred servers colo'd with them. They've been nothing but stellar in everything.

    Great to here 8 years. They are amazing!

    2 years next week for us with ZERO downtime too. We had two bad hard drives, but their server hardware made it easy for a live swap without any down time. Pingdom states 100% uptime for 2 years!

    My only issue with Steadfast is that they don't have more locations.

    Sorry, had somehow not seen this until now. Just wanted to comment that we do have a full site, with full service offerings, opening in NJ in several months.
