Server outages

Half a day of downtime is bad, but two major outages in less then ten days are too much! It seems that Unixshell ( is a virtual XEN server hosted by them) is having some serious connectivity problems and they don’t know what redundancy is, even if on their web page they say:

Built-in redundancy through multiple redundant network connections and redundant router and switch configuration.

By the way, my server is finally back online!

Yeah, the unixshell# service quality has been increasingly patchy of late. The first 14 months or so were trouble free, but in the last 4 months I’ve gotten the impression that Tektonic favour Virtuozzo over Xen and are moving resources as such. This was the last straw for me and I’ll be moving somewhere else.

Yes they favour Virtuozzo over Xen, but also the Virtuozzo servers had troubles in the last weeks.

If you want something similar you can try, but then let me know how it works!
