Reliable Dedicated/VPS providers in Canada?

Depends what you’re looking for, what you want to pay.

I host dedicated machines for a bunch of clients, who get a realio-trulio machine (something like a DL360) with unlimited transfer and the OS of their choice.  If they want it, they even get maintenance and after-hours on-call tech staff who actually know what they are doing.

But it costs them more than the cheap $15/month we’ll-hosy-your-wesite packages, typically well north of $100/month for a fast machine with maintenance, somewhat less for an older, slower box unmaintained.  All housed at 151 Front, THE premier Canadian data centre.

Drop me a line if you are interested, and we can talk.

I have also been burned by the “cheap” (usually quality, not price) VPS instances on oversold hardware in someone’s basement.
