This actually had me chuckling a little bit and was too good to keep to myself so I had to share it with everyone.
We recently had a pretty big surge in business in NY and our usual provider was not able to fill our orders so we looked around and decided to go with Hudson Digital for a few machines to fill the quota.
Well let me tell you.. I sent the sales department an email with our requirements and about 5 minutes later I get an email back saying "No problem we can take care of it". So I'm thinking "Great the sales department is on the ball, Thats a good sign" So an invoice gets sent out by them for the server and is paid right away.
Next thing I see is another email from Hudsons sales department so I'm thinking maybe there is a problem with the order or the billing department needs more info but much to my surprize it is the welcome email with our account details! Elapsed time 20 minutes between email and welcome letter.
So, Of course me being the sceptic and all I go ahead and order another server from them a few hours later and sure enough less then 1/2 hour goes by and another welcome email.
I actually wish we had more funds to allocate to NY so I could order a few more servers from them and see how long they could keep up. But I think it is fair to say Hudson Digital is the real deal.
These guys are freaky fast with server setup and not only that they have them setup properly the first time which is a rarity now-a-days..
Deepbluehosting, the particular servers that X-Gaming is referring to are servers that Hudson Digital colocates on CRNC.net's network. HD also has their own network, but for whatever reason, colocates servers on CRNC's network in addition to their own. The last time I've been in touch with HD, they offered colocation on their Savvis network, and on their Level3 networks, both being on seperate floors. I was told they were planning on offering a BGP in the future.
