    Looking for a DC who understands custom needs

    I'm looking to bring up a new company and need a new DC, my current provider just isn't very responsive and is not well suited for custom configurations.

    My needs are basic, Socket AM2/DDR2 servers with 2 nics (one gig), a private gig-e switch, /27 routed to my public vlan with 100mbps port uplink.

    I use single system images over AoE, so HD space is not a major concern, I also use very little bandwidth, mostly just text/html.

    I need the availability of KVM units deployed quickly, another big plus is being able to order just a few Cpanel/VPS licenses when I need them.

    Everything I do is based on Xen.. I install my own OS [ based on Ubuntu ] via PXE. All I need are boxes built to spec, plugged in and fed Internet.

    In the last 5 years I've had 4 total abuse complaints.. really a low maintenance customer. I don't re-sell to the public, I just make clusters for select clients.

    I just want a DC that wants business from small business with odd needs, and I want to stay away from the bigger companies because I've found we just get "lost" in them once moved in.

    I'm PayPal verified and can also pay via CC.

    Any recommendations?

    I really don't want to smear anyone, although my annoyed-o-meter just floored and bent the needle. My current provider does *try*, just not very hard.

    Was hoping to get a recommendation just based on needs.

    Thanks in advance for any recommendations of smaller outfits.

    Maybe take a look at: http://www.steadfast.net

    With them Im not sure about "I need the availability of KVM units deployed quickly, another big plus is being able to order just a few Cpanel/VPS licenses when I need them. "

    You could always send them an email.

    Good luck!

    I would have to say check out www.colo4jax.com for this. Ray will most likely be able to set something up for you as they specialize in custom configs and not the cookie cutter servers.

    Wow! Thank you to everyone who replied so quickly. All of the recommendations were good. http://www.thenynoc.com had the best understanding of what we wanted and offered the best value for what we need.

    Andy was really helpful and obviously knows what he's doing (and selling), if you look at the specs I posted , that's pretty impressive on his part

    Again, thank you - everyone who replied. WHT seems tostill be the place to go when you need to get business done in a hurry.



    Best to all, and thanks again!
