    Seeking for dedicated server in Europe

    Can somebody help me and to recommend a reliable dedicated server in Europe?

    One of my business offices is in Russia, but its not safe to order the same over there. So I need a dedicated server in Europe with a minimum ping to Moscow (87.249.9.33). I 've tried iWeb, but ping is about 140 ms, which is unacceptable (at least 50 ms seems to be OK). I need a very reliable service with a support in English. Configuration which I need is as follows:

    1. CPU Inter Core Duo from 2 Ghz
    2. Memory RAM: from 6 Gb
    3. Hard drives: 2 x 160 Gb(with RAID software)
    4. IP KVM
    5. Internet: 10Mbit unlimited traffic (from 4 TB), 2 public IPs
    6. Software: Windwos 2003 Standart + Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Workgroup

    Urgent advise is appreciated.

    Maybe a server in a neighbouring country would work better, i know two providers in Finland (see below). Never used them myself so can't say anything about them but i'm looking for servers in that region too so if you go with one please write a review here on WHT.

    Hosting in Finland:

    Keep it with a quote ;-).

    It's a lowbudget network (located in Holland/Poland). I would suggest go for LeaseWeb, or some major parties in Germany.

    Is it mandatory that it be in Europe? There are a lot of great companies in the United States that service Europe very nicely Also, what price range were you looking it?

    I recommend Hetzner.de . After recent network upgrades they have now great routing all over Europe (direct access to all important IX in Europe).

    Your source please? because this is totally untrue and unfounded.
    Swiftway has a high end network, routed with high end Cisco routers.

    Funny how you suggest Leaseweb, while Leaseweb is one of our uplink providers. Since we mix Leaseweb/Fiberring with other bandwidth, how can we be worse? see Internap: mix several strong networks together to get an even better mix.

    To quote from http://www.lowenddedi.net/leaderboard-network-quality

    "We'll take one example: let us compare OVH with Swiftway. The servers for both are located in Central Europe and so the profiles (or shape) of the graphs are very similar. However, OVH consistently has 50-70ms more lag on access to its servers from around the world - no matter where you are excepting oddly enough Ireland where OVH shines, though Swiftway are particularly badly connected to Poland."

    How wrong your quote could be, right?

    False.
    The true is that hop across Atlantic Ocean (from Frankfurt to Washington, e.x.) takes about 100 ms

    Which is over double my average ping latency to any UK datacentre...

    I recently got a server with Swiftway, and while I'm still testing it and thus am withholding overall judgment, the ping times seem to be pretty good. Compared to my servers at Leaseweb, it's about the same for Europe (+/- 2 ms) but about 10ms lower latency from Chicago (FDCServers), at least when I ran my tests. just-ping had varying but on average comparable latency for both servers.
