This past month i have ordered 4 different dedicated servers from 4 seperate datacenters.
without bashing any of the ones ive not been happy with....
i use a whatsup gold server to monitor ping every 5 minutes.
a popular sanjose location with abovenet seems to loose packets on avereage 1-2x daily.
a popular dallas location --- same thing.. some packet loss and an hour of downtime.
kc, mo location... wtf is with all their arp traffic.... i did more bw transfer from arp traffic than anything else.
crnc.net -- havent dropped a packet in 45 days. (this is a low end box i have with them, 1ghz 512 2x40gb). Service has been quite good. james is very easy to deal with. (i think his buddy chris is more of a sales guy and im not saying he isnt helpful but james seems to be the guru)
i have had a couple of problems at each location. some legit, some instigated on my part just to see how quickly support can address my issue.
if you were looking for a standard wmh/cpanel box id point you toward angelnetworkz.net but for the setup your looking at id have to suggest you contact crnc.net (james at crcn dot net) for a quote.
nero-x, thanks for your comment, I'll make sure to contact them and check 'm out.
Right now I've contacted about 10 companies to give me a quote, 4 of them were unable to offer (hardware) RAID, the rest has either made an offer, or will make one soon
Liquidweb has an extreme fast support - they replied to my sales question in the middle of the night...
