I've been with Leaseweb for almost 4 yours now and never had any outages on their side. Recently i had my first HDD Failure, and i was afraid it would take a while, because it happend on saturday evening 23:00 and i did not b... More uy any additional SLA. But i opened the ticket saturday night.
and the HDD was replaced, hot, without a reboot or downtime. And once i woke up on sunday, my RAID 5 was already rebuilding.

Been with them 3-4 days because of their "100% uptime". Their entire network has been constantly down for almost TWO DAYS. My uptime monitor reports total completely down over the last 2 days of almost FOUR hours. Including... More for an HOUR last night. Dreamhost is completely unsympathetic that my business is losing money, and has been sending out "gee we're sorry. It will probably be fixed soon" emails.
I've been in many hosters, and Dreamhost is the worst by far. I now have to find another hoster, and move my site AGAIN because their service has been pathetic and unreliable. Run as fast and as far as you can from Dreamhost. A completely unreliable and dysfunctional provider.
ADDED: It's now the THIRD day my website is going down. A hoster with unresolved DNS problems taking down my site. This is the most unreliable service I've ever been 9n, and all I've gotten from Dreamhost is "our techs are working on it. Meanwhile, I lose money and clients, and they dont seem to care at all.
