Dedicated server recommendations

I am looking for a budget dedicated server for around £100/month that will offer the following:
A processor capable of hardware virtualization
At least 4Gb Ram
At least 250Gb HDD
At least 5 IP's
If possible KVMoIP so I can mount remote media and install whatever I want and break whatever I want.
I have a couple of VPS's dotted around that I do a bit of testing with and basically I want to run Citrix Xenserver (although I could settle with Xen open source on CentOS)
The best option I can see so far is easyspace. Anyone got any recommendations?

Might be worth having a word with Mythic Beasts. Not sure if they'd fit your bill exactly, but they do seem to know what they're doing.

Might be worth giving Kimsufi a look.
www.kimsufi.co.uk - I use these and have never had problems, their 24G box is outstanding Smiley
They come with 1 IP address, but you can get additional IP addresses for like £1 each. They also let you purchase RIPE IP blocks Smiley
If you have any questions about them, feel free to drop me a pm.
That is, if you're not specific on the location of your equipment.

Re: Dedicated server recommendations

I have just looked at that, they are charging £149 setup + £19 / month for KVMoIP, a service which costs them nothing. I would be very put off by that.
I got a server with www.redstation.co.uk
It is a Dell with DRAC permenantly available (and I have already used it to install Citrix Xenserver)
Core i3 3.06Ghz
8Gb RAM
2 x 2Tb RAID 1
4 usable IP's (DRAC on the 5th IP)
£97 / month with no setup cost and 1p for the first month.
So far it has been fantastic.

Re: Dedicated server recommendations

Cool,
There aren't any UK hosts that can accommodate my needs because I need large volumes of RAM, and to get that in the UK, would cost stupid amounts lol.
Glad to hear you got a nice deal though.
