          What are some alternatives to Hetzner Online AG, OVH, and SoftLayer?
          Rackspace OnMetal
          OnMetal servers are single-tenant, bare-metal servers provisioned via the same OpenStack API as our cloud. They can be spun up as quickly as VMs to offer the agility of multi-tenant environments with the performance of single-tenant hardware. OnMetal servers are our own design and are engineered in a highly opinionated way. We’ve made them 100 percent solid-state with external cooling, leading to increased mean time between failures (MTBF). They are also incredibly large, so you’ll need fewer of them.

          We use Hetzner Online AG since the inception of our business, because of the great prices, marvelous support and great interface (especially the new cloud interface). Other options that we tested are DigitalOcean (was more expensive than the new hetzner cloud and didn't offer "huge" dedicated servers), @Vultr (about the same issue as with DigitalOcean , although the prices were better), OVH (Prices, old interface, no "tiny" packages and [at least back at the day] only monthly payment) and Living Bots (Only dedicated servers, too expensive for our needs).

          Hetzner offered the best spectrum of servers and has great prices and REALLY great prices in the server auctions.

          We use a mix of dedicated and cloud servers with SoftLayer and the service has been amazing. Great performance, great networking and for a really good price. The time of provisioning is sometimes longer than advertised, which can be a problem depending on your needs. Also while their API seems very powerful the documentation is not great.

          We use OVH to host the majority of our servers spread across the globe. This allows us to have a single point of contact for our main hosting when issues arise as well as giving us the ability to quickly failover servers when needed. OVH also helps us by keeping the price we pay for servers down therefore keeping the fees on our products themselves down.

          The majority of our dedicated servers are hosted with OVH, due to their competitive pricing, easy to use control panels and quick on-site support options.
