    Debian dedicated server in the UK?

    Hello,

    After a number of network outages with our current provider (UK2.net, just a couple of minutes duration each time, but enough to upset our customers), we need to find another Debian-capable dedicated server provider.

    We also use 49pence, who are very good, but need our secondary server at a different physical site.

    Can anybody recommend a network-reliable and inexpensive unmanaged Debian dedicated server provider in the UK for us to move to?

    Thanks,

    Matt.

    To get meaningful recommendations you'll need to giv a few more details. What sort of spec machine(s) are you looking for, and what sort of bandwidth?

    Hi there,

    I'm not really looking for a quote, just a recommendation for a reliable provider.

    Current specs: 2GHz+ processor, 80Gb hard drive, unmetered bandwidth (ideally). We can be flexible so long as they support Debian on 'unmanaged' servers.

    Hope this helps,

    Matt.

    Hi oqwhatsup,

    Its a problem with one of our core routers that is causing this, we are aware of it and will be completely replacing them in 10 days to resolve it.

    I can understand its frustrating but we have to plan an operation of this scale quite carefully.

    Thanks,
    Andy

    We just had another network outage at UK2. The replacement switch is going in by Tuesday, right?

    You will ensure that there's no downtime during business hours, won't you?

    Hi, have another update...

    An e-mail is going out today which will inform all dedicated server customers of the exact time of the scheduled downtime and details of what we are doing.

    Thanks,
    Andy
