    I recently purchased a server with Dacentec and I have fallen in love with them. I purchased two dual e5620's servers with 48 gigs of ram to being transitioning from the VPS market that I was in to more self hosted setups. Currently I am running a bulk of my servers and apps on this server and have nearly fully transitioned everything that I use on VPSs to these lovely monsters. With an added bonus of a great network I have even seen a surge in the usage of my sites as they are accessed even more then before. Though I will note that I have had a few outages, and they could do a little work on beefing up there peering, all around I'm a very happy customer!

    I would highly suggest Dacentec to anyone with needs for dedicated or rent to own servers! I give them a 4.5/5
