What are some good alternatives to the virtual private server company sliceshost? I would like a few alternates providers.

Linode are who I am with. They have very good pricing, good performance (google search "slicehost vs linode" for example) and a very active support community in the forums and IRC if you need help. Highly recommended!

Have a look at OVH, they offer the RPS service which is essentially a diskless system connected to a large SAN. They also offer VPS style services as well.

  • I saw that service some days ago, as I have a dedicated at OVH, and sounds good... Have you tried that? For 10 euros a month the basic system seems better than a VPS, you know you aren't sharing nothng but the space... could be nice for a OpenSocial app or a new site... – Andor May 29 '09 at 9:32

    You have a 100mbit connection that you share for net traffic and disk I/O to the SAN, so heavy I/O load reduces your net traffic and likewise reverse. It's a tradedown from a real dedicated machine but the flexibility allows OVH to reduce costs to a bare minimum. – Andrew Williams May 30 '09 at 22:11

Webbynode - cheaper but not better than Slicehost.

VPSNet (vps dot net)

I use Slicehost, tough, but a colleague of mine uses VPSNet and likes it.

I use vpsFarm for one of my personal images. I chose it for the un-metered bandwidth.
