Datacenter reliability comparison
Our Datacenter in hawaii DRFortress had an outage due to a UPS test on Dec. 11- which rebooted all AC devices in the datacenter (200+ Racks)…
I'm just wondering what ISP Provider for linode seems to be the best one.
We still love the linodes though
This is by no means scientific, I host my linodes in either London or Dallas. I've had a single outage in each over the past 18 months which was network hardware failure and lasted a couple of hours. Overall I have 99.99% uptime
I have 2 linodes in Dallas and one in London myself, and I've had similar experience with these two datacenters. The only downtime I had in London was due to upgrades, including one migration due to hardware failure (ie. the host server was about to fail).
You can add my recommendation as well for both Dallas and London.
I'm assuming HE.net was doing a UPS test (Sunday 1am) and the test went bad, that's how it happened in Hawaii for our DC.
Steady 110ms to my corner of Europe, and obviously much less to USA-local users.
Just my $0.02.
EDIT: Looked at the calendar. Still a few weeks to two years, so "almost".
Network might be another story; someone with more free time could probably analyze historic BGP data and see how often the announcements go away. The differences are probably statistically insignificant over realistic (year+) time frames.

Fremont 2010/11/20 Power (multi-day issues; damaged machines)
Did you guys migrate to Dallas and then back to Fremont?
Was the whole data center down for days?? or just random outages?
January 2008 that May
This is not to be critical of Atlanta – seems like that was just bad luck, and they've fixed whatever problems they were -- but just because I think it's interesting.
Fremont is the only one with questionable power at the moment. :-\ At least
