Well I cannot comment on ev1 I heard there network is quite good though. We use ServerMatrix which has same pipes and DC as ThePlanet. Nothing but praises for there network stability. One network outage due to hardware failure since September 2003 since then rock solid and we are happy. You might try SM as there prices are lower then ThePlanet. ThePlanet has a little more redundancy and greater server configuration for multiple servers is all.
Use both. Lots of hosts here balance servers between several DCs. It allows for offsite backups and multiple network name servers.
EV1 is great if you want to manage every aspect of your box with little to no support except for hardware. SM will give you basic management such as kernel upgrades automatically. Though neither are fully managed they both are great.
ServerMatrix will do kernel upgrades, etc. automatically, but if something goes wrong you can count on a speedy response from EV1, whereas you could be left unheard for hours with SM. Just my personal experience.
Originally posted by puffdawggie Which one of these networks is better? Also, ThePlanet seems a little overpriced with their addons, and doesn't come with plesk 7 while ev1 does. I'm looking in the 2-250 range.
theplanet has 100% network uptime with SLA guarantee.
