Almost 18 months ago I wrote about my unhappiness with RapidXen on my old blog. Contrary to my original intentions, I kept one of my RapidXen instances alive as a spare. I recently had a small issue with it and discovered that the RapidXen response was extremely prompt and effective. And I already know that their move away from Fremont had helped their reliability. So, prompted by lengthy failures of my Linode in Fremont, I thought I might put the RapidXen host back into an important role. And I moved my Linode to Dallas, hoping that the increased latency might be offset by better reliability. I'm hoping that this strategy, which now gives me hosts in Chicago, Dallas and Los Angeles, will be a success when I'm in Europe for four months next year.
I know the RapidXen people were unhappy with my previous post, so this post is intended to show them there are no hard feelings. I'm hoping to continue as one of their happy customers for a long time.
