    Geekrack given up? All dedicated servers are now in the hands of Burst.net

    This seems a bit strange:

    We are pleased to make the following announcement. All dedicated services clients will now be directly serviced by BurstNET Technologies, Inc. We have worked a comprehensive deal in order to provide you our consumers with both the technical and billing support. All dedicated services clients will now be directly serviced by BurstNET Technologies, Inc., the data center your service is currently provided in. Nothing needs to be done at this time on your part; however we would like to make you aware of just a few things. All contact/billing information has been released to BurstNet in order to efficiently service your account. There are just a few urls that I would like to make you aware of at this time as well.
    I wonder what the reason was?

    Does this mean GR is out of the dedicated industry or they'll sell and Burst will support?

    It looks like they've gave Burst all the details of their clients and from now on, Burst will be taking payments and continuing the service for those clients with GeekRack.

    Good to know this, as they were not able to offer a good enough service level but Burst should live up to the task. Better to deal with a direct service provider than resellers that don't live up to their offer.

    And your point is? Please clarify ...

    If you look at the email (spoke with a friend that is a customer), they are just doing all the support for GeekRack, GeekRack will still sell, and keep the current clients.

    EDIT: Please post the whole email, so that people do not get confused next time.

    Look at this part.

    All contact/billing information has been released to BurstNet
    Why would they release billing information if it was solely support related?

    So that they could verify that it was the client? If they didn't how would Burst know who has what?

    Dear GeekRack Client,

    At the request of our reseller, GeekRack Networks, BurstNET™ has accepted transfer of of your service direct with our company---effective immediately.
    BurstNET Technologies, Inc is the data center your service is currently located at, and the owner of the equipment/network/facility providing service to you.

    BurstNET™ will be invoicing your server/service based on the same price you were previously paying with GeekRack.
    Your first invoice will be for the same service renewal date as with GeekRack, and service will be provided at no charge up until that first renewal date (as many of you have already paid for the current service period) from our company.
    We cannot honor any long term payments to GeekRack, if such were made, as such issues are between their company and yourself, however, we will provide service to you during the current service period as a courtesy.

    Now that the service is transferred directly to us, any support related issues you may have been having should cease, and you will have the peace of mind that stable and secure service will follow.

    Your IP address(es) should not change, and you should not see any service interruption due to this procedure.

    BurstNET™ will be processing the transfers, and updating all contact/support/billing information into your name---as provided to us by GeekRack.
    You will receive several contacts from us following this email, during the transfer process, including a service welcome letter, billing account details, and invoicing details.

    From seeing the full email, dedicated servers have passed to BurstNET - GR are no longer involved.
