VPS/Dedi provider for mission critical services?

Hey guys

I'm wondering what providers you use for mission-critical stuff?

    No? Kimsufi is solid, for the price, especially the flash sales they did.
    The HDD may break every 2-3 years but thats like 40 minutes downtime, then its replaced.
    You pull your backups and you be fine.

  • Kimsufi can be stable indeed. No downtime on one of my nodes there for quiet some time now.

    My main systems are with SYS and Hetzner. Backups on Kimsufi.

  • Novogara and WSI, of course!

  • You wouldn't be asking here for mission-critical stuff!

    @quick knows- best.

    • do not prepay > 1 year and check for reviews/support
    • only use monthly from a provider operating < 1 year

    My $35 Quickpacket.net server has been reliable. I keep lots of backups so worst case scenario if one of my vpses/dedis goes down then it'll be just a few hours max (which is fine for me) to get everything back up and running.

    Linode is good

    I am specialized on offshore bulletproof hosters only.

    Buy two LET-boxes, setup some fancy replication and failover mechanism between them and you should be able to achieve enough nines for most LET-critical stuff.

    Or in other words: Never put your eggs into one basket.

    I agree on Softlayer, but OVH, really ?! With the amount of avoidable failures they had with cooling, single fibre to DC, etc ? You can’t really put OVH in the same shelve as Softlayer, c’mon. Be serious.

    Build a backup datacenter in your top floor or ask some friendly neighbour for a colocation and put some fiber under your garden to his house. :)

    Maybe i am a relatively new customer of their (have a VPS since 2016 with them) and that's why I don't really know anything about the issues you have mentioned, so I guess they improved a lot because i had zero problems with them.

    Erm, these were separate incidents showing their attitude to resiliency, design, cost-cutting at the expense of quality, etc so I'm confused what your comment is supposed to say, that you consider yourself lucky?

    My comment was supposed to say that currently I am very happy with their service and would recommend it as reliable. By the way, I still haven't found any evidence of what you said, at least in FR locations, so I don't think it's me who should explain myself right now.

    There is no need, because am not going to judge the hoster that provides good service now for his past. Anyway, Clouvider is ofc better than OVH, hope you're happy now.

    OVH is GREAT - when it works. Everything can work fine, but then it breaks one day... don't bother contacting support then. You'll have a much better luck complaining on one of their mailing lists.

    The last time OVH broke, it was on the news. Have 2 servers with them and they have been solid so far.
