Data Foundry is amazing. Technical support is top notch and responds ULTRA qiuckly to issues. I rarely have to call, I just email support and a ticket number and details response are quickly received. If you want a Data Center provider that will give you a headache free experience, this is the place. The Texas 1 facility in Austin is exceptionally well built. Go down and take a tour, you'll be moving your servers over in no time.

Top notch Data Center smack dab in the center of Americas safe zone when it comes to things like natural disasters that could cause serious problems for the average data center hosting your companies servers. But when I went on a tour of this facility a few weeks back I learned that unlike other data centers it was purpose built, from the ground up, to be a data center - meaning extra security for your servers if some freak storm or something did sweep through Austin.
