    I had a server with Volume Drive for several months, just shy of a year I believe.

    Was great service when I had it. Since I know nothing of Sentris I couldn't make a recommendation, but I don't think you can go wrong with Volume Drive.

    Hello volumedrive
    do you manage servers too? Sentris offers are fully managed.

    I don't have any personal experience with either company but from what I've seen on WHT VolumnDrive appears to be the best. I hope you will give is a review regarding which provider you choose. Good luck!

    A lot of companies now a days still dont have live chat, it can sometimes attract the wrong type of customers. A professional customer is not worried about ringing up or sending a polite e-mail and working with the company

    Absolutely Volumedrive is your 1st choice,

    I talked several times with josh, and asked for 3 invoice from him, however, i didn't purchase any servers from the. still, I didn't feel any anger from him, still, josh answered all my questions quickly.

    finally, I purchased their I7 server recently, their support is still great, email, msn, you can choose any one you feel better to contact them

    Frankly, I haven't received my i7, but I can give you positive answer. it won't be wrong to choose them as i have 6 servers and 27 vps experience.

    About sentris, old supplier on WHT, cheap price and flexible choice, and some plan is still in my mind, unfortunately I haven't recived any 1 answer from them to my asking email, and sentrisim at hotmail.com was never online in my memory.

    No offence, I wanted to purchase a server from them, but i can't contact them lol, so I recommend VolumeDrive, Josh is a nice man **

    Really? We're not aware of any email left unanswered, but if you did create ticket online at http://helpdesk.sentris.com then we can look up your ticket number to check. As far as msn, the guy is actually online but with msn, they sometimes have problems logging in, so you can try

    not really, at least it didn't happen on me, you can expect 70-80mbps from 100mbps port easily(from others only 40-60mbps). take care

    i think that i must delete sentris from the thread title lol
    because all guys said volume drive is very nice.

    i was a test their network -test file- but i am worry yet about their network! one guy tell this on other topic:
    As a rule dedicated providers oversell the bandwidth

    do they that? overselling bandwidth is my mean
    if i want to use all of their bandwidth- for example 3 tb- can i?
    thanks every one

    I used to have dedicated servers from sentris, I have a experience that my server was down for three days. They helped me in an extremely low in speed.

    I don't think we'd ever let a server go down for 3 days, we have emergency ticket with response time in about 30 minutes or less. Plus with our free monitoring, we'd know in minutes when a server goes down. Except maybe if you have a ping monitoring and your web server went down, then we would not know, but if you contact us especially via our emergency tickets, we'll always respond in 30 minutes or less.

    Here's a speed test of our custom 1 network:
