RimuHosting specialize in Linux Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting plans using Xen. These plans are far more flexible and powerful than 'regular' virtual hosting plans. A RimuHosting VPS is functionally equivalent to a Linux dedicated server, but at a fraction of the cost.
I've used rimuhosting for a little over a year now and have had exceptional service where the admin team are even willing to fix some of my code without charge if there is an issue. I've loved using rimuhosting and now have two vps servers with them. I've converted my current company over to rimu and advise every customer I get to sign up with them.
I have user many others:
servint, linode, rootbsd, wiredtree.
The support that rimuhosting gives is *much* better then all the rest altouth rimu is not a managed service.
Professional sysadmins that will configure and fix many things and not some kids is a support team that will *play* with you.
I've had 2 other hosts besides this one: ixwebhosting and Joyent.
I recently moved from Joyent because they had an end of life. I had to move everything: a Database, and operations, nearly 2000 daily active users use my game daily.
rimuhosting has excellent support, often getting back to you in less then 1 hour. they work with you to solve issues and provide very intelligent responses.
The only downside is performance. The performance of Joyent was far superior to rimuhosting. when I first moved to rimuhosting, I had to do alot of tuning to get things running smoothly. And even then, things still were not as fast as Joyent. I keep a log of all the slow queries. I get far slower Updates and Inserts on Rimuhosting.
The great thing about their pricing is that they break it down for you by bandwidth usage and memory usage, so you can select which ones you want and reduce your costs.
Uptime has been near perfection. Most of the downtime I've experienced was most likely due to some performance issues.
Terrible! Do not use them.
Fucked up our system.
