We currently have a number of servers with dedicated unmetered bandwidth. However, this is not enough during peak periods, so I'm thinking of getting some smaller/cheaper unmetereds next to the "real" ones.
One package I'm considering is the $149/month one for 100mbps shared unmetered bandwidth at pixelfxsolutions (FDCservers reseller). As long as it does 30mbps during peak periods, it's good enough for my purpose. Any downtime is of course not acceptable.
Does anyone have good/bad experiences with pixelfx... or should go I with FDC directly... or just avoid either company?
pixel's helpdesk service is great 24/7 but peak time is the worse time to be looking for 30 mbps. I had a server with them but it kept locking up under heavy load so if you want zero downtime ask them for one of their opterons rather than the "cheap" athlons they have with the nforce chipset. That chipset works terribly with UDMA drives and you have to disable that through grub.
hi i have a server with pixelfxsoloutions at the moent service has been great for me i would definatley recommend them i did have a problem to start with i was given ips that had been assigned elsewhere but this was quickly resolved other then that no major problems
