I switched hosts recently to a dedicated server provided by i3d.net. I got a great deal on it, and have been really pleased thus far.
Processor: Intel Xeon X3220 (2.4ghz x4)
Memory: 4gb ddr2
HDD: 250gb x2
OS: Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS
The server is a Dell Poweredge, and hasn’t slowed down one bit since it was provisioned. I get 10tb of transfer per month, which is a nice boost from the 2tb i was receiving from VolumeDrive. The server is located in the Netherlands, but latency is not bad at all, and is not important to the duties I have it doing. I plan on keeping the VPS for another month, but I will be dropping my service with VolumeDrive shortly. The node I was on has been crashing often, and their network isn’t as good as it used to be. It was good while it lasted.
