What providers do you go with for your production servers?

Most of the providers here on LET seem to be pretty good with reliability and uptime on their servers but just wanted to know what everyone uses for their production servers.

    OVH. Seriously, not trolling. I've got like a year, 4 months uptime (BHS) on a client's server. Client is happy, server just hums along.

    How to clean up a questionable reputation: throw the kids some BF/CM offers.

    I generally have 2 levels of production.

    Client side: anything that affects clients (web hosting, email, dns, etc.etc...)

    Internal: things that affects me. (Project management software, nextcloud, librenms, etc.etc...)

    Client side providers I deem production ready and trust.

    Internal side: Good reviews online and I decide to give them a go. Providers here could potentially be used for client side if deemed reliable enough.

    With that in mind:

    Client side: Prometeus, Vultr, RamNode, OVH and DediServe

    Internal: HostUS, ImpactVPS, FlowVPS

    OVH too. They take care of the network and hardware and I do the rest. Not like they have massive guarantees about their availability but TBF when they host several hundred thousand people, they're not bullshitters, they 'do' hosting the way unmanaged hosting should be done, they're unparalleled in the unmanaged space.

  • I also have 2 levels of "production".
    What is for business production and what is for me production.
    For business I trust nobody, this means redundancy on highly resilient network must be on with 3 points for most important stuff and 2 for auxiliary services.
    For me, well, I trust uncle and the datacenters at hand where i can go and colo stuff as well as my home network and UMB hosting.

  • I really dig NetCup. Their shit just works and there's no fuss or muss.

    That said, I'm really enjoying @vmhaus for a new company, and as always, @AnthonySmith is the stalwart who never lets shit go down.

    For production I use: ArubaCloud, Veesp ( @veesp ), HostSolutions ( @cociu ), Scaleway.

  • mfsmfs Banned, Member

    Prometeus, Hetzner

    Liteserver is more in the LET range and their uptime+reliability is excellent, a more variegated offer would be welcome anyway

    I've completely dropped OVH for anything remotely related to "production"

    I'd like to say more on Netcup but it's still too soon

    for production? wow.

    As for LET options, I would opt for RamNode (vps/shared), Prometeus (vps/shared), HostHatch, LiteServer, InceptionHosting, SecureDragon, UltraVPS.eu, GinerNet, 1PWH, KMS-Hosting, OnVirt, VaporNode, CloudLite, ITLDC, Beget (shared) and a few others. Of course I'm not using all of them, but these are the ones I trust so far.

    Feel free to criticize other providers... this is LET and free speech is allowed. However, never expect me to appreciate you or your offensive attitude towards other providers, or other clients projects, whether is HostSolutions, AboveClouds (yes, I remember), or anything else.

    And because free speech is allowed, with all respect to whatever you may think about me, I hereby promise to never be your client/customer, no matter how cheap or free your offers will be (this is not advertising), simply because you disgust me with your insults towards others.

    As a side note, feel free to consider this a joke like yours...

    Don't get me wrong, I respect @Clouvider and enjoy his services. He's knowledgeable and goes the extra mile for his clients.

    But what is perceived by many as "bashing" should be tuned down in order to remain professional.

    Just my view, only constructive criticism from me :)

    Production but low bandwidth usage: Clouvider. It just works, and Dom isn't scared about my batshit networking setup.

    Bandwidth intensive stuff: OVH and Hetzner. You simply can't beat the pricing.

    Dude, calm your freaking horses down, this place ain't no WHT where providers have their corporate tag and all of that other shit. Professional here has a completely different meaning, it literally does. The service and customer service tag still apply, but the level of douchery, horseplaying that providers will engage here has no significance meaning to most that lurk and post here.

    Seriously, people act as if @Clouvider just did some big dent on his reputation. The truth of the matter is that nobody that intends on using his network GIVES A FUCK. Only those that want to get their "EXTRA" exposure to their brand will act like they care, and then later on turn around and say how he/she didn't mean to expose @Clouvider.

    Oh and also , @default stop over-reacting thinking your $2-5 dollars you won't spend buying any of @Ishaq services are going to make a difference to @Ishaq. People these days, taking the whole "voting-with-your-wallet" too literal.

    No shit, I guess you are used to people arguing about one side and being completely bias about the other.

    The first two paragrahs were for @Ishaq, and the last one was for @default that was replying to @Ishaq brand-exposure-pr reply.

    They both were displaying a high level of hypocrisy. Hence, why I criticized both of them.

    Came here to add my two cents, I hope I'm not interrupting your drama.

    SecureDragon for production level stuff, Vultr for personal stuff as well as my design portfolio and small websites, InceptionHosting and Scaleway for little servers to use as VPNs, and Backupsy for backups.

    I plan to add some netcup and buyVM flavor into the mix soon.

    HarzemDesign and FraudRecord I have these. I have some new pre-made designs. Contact me if you are interested, they are half price.

    "Real" production: Google Cloud or AWS, mostly for the SLAs, more 9s needed. I prefer Google Cloud if possible since they have U2F hardware token 2FA auth for your google account, which to me matters in "real" production.

    Personal production: OVH, dacentec, hostus, securedragon, DigitalOcean, atlantic.net, hopefully soon to include Clouvider when I get the chance to use them.

    Will shill for Pop-Tarts(must be strawberry flavour).

  • Whenever I hear 'production', I think : Am I willing to pay this provider upto 3years upfront, in exchange for a 10-20% discount?
    (or none if you really really like them)
    That's the low bar for 'production' on LET.

    My list(alphabetical) : BuyVM, Clouvider, Hetzner, InceptionHosting, Leaseweb, Liteserver, Prometeus brands, UltraVPS.eu.

    If Ramnode pricing isn't still batshit, feel free to add it to above list
