    Rack911 vs AdminGeekZ

    So I've concluded that these two are the best in what they do, Scott vs Steve.

    Which one would you recommend? Price vs Quality. The best bang for the buck, and the best server admin overall.

    My vote goes to Scott/AdminGeekz as they're who I knew and used their services in the past. Scott is great guy to work with actually and VERY knowledgable which can fix almost anything and friendly too.

    Unfortunatley I can't vote on this at the moment.

    I hired Steve to have a look over one of our machines to see if any further optimization could be done. He had a look, gave us a price and explained what work he would do on the machine. This was on Friday night and we have not heard anything since.

    I've sent a couple of emails now and PM'd from here but not heard anything back.

    Sent an email to Scott/Admingeekz Friday for a quote and not heard back from them at all.

    Both are solid companies that have a long track record. While I have never hired either I talk with Scott and Steve on occasion on irc/chat.

    I just wanted to follow up from my previous post, Scott contacted me a few minutes after and it appears it was a user error, just doing too many things at once, and not clicking the final submit button!

    I had tried to hire Steven for some work for which he offered me a quote but then just stopped responding to my emails.

    I ended up going with Dennis(ServaxNet).

    +1 Rack911

    I've had the pleasure of working with both Scott/AdminGeekZ and Steven/Rack911 in matters unrelated to server administration, and I've enjoyed working with both of them very much.

    But I have had the opportunity to work with Steven over the past 10 months regarding server-related issues. We needed someone to jump into a server situation desperately, and it just so happened Steven was the first one available. Today, we are so comfortable with his work and so confident in the knowledge he brings to the table, that we have him positioned as an extra layer of management on all our equipment, and we do not put a server online until he has optimized it.

    I like Scott, and it's entirely possible Scott and Co. give great service too. If Steven/Rack911 wasn't around, Scott would probably be the first person I'd call on to enquire about management services. I just don't have the firsthand experience at this point to make a recommendation on his behalf.

    But I am in the position to speak for Steven, and I'll vouch for Rack911 any day of the week - absolutely superb server management!

    There were a lot of complaints about this with Rack911 in the past and in fact, is why I had to find someone else. In fairness, I haven't seen a similar comment in some time.

    I've been using AdminGeekz for a few years now and have found that they are top of the line. Communication is excellent, service is exactly what I expect and they've yet to disappoint me.

    Rack911 and AdminGeekz are the same two admin companies I usually refer my customers to. They can both handle just about any situation.

    I've had the same problem with Steven a couple of times. Usually I contact someone like these guys because I have an urgent issue. So when they stop responding it doesn't give me a good reason to keep using them. So in Steve's case I haven't.
