DataPipe and Server Intellect had the most reliable hosting company sites in August 2009.

This is the 4th appearance in the top ten for DataPipe in the last 5 months. The Jersey City based company offers a number of hosting and managed services to a range of vertical industries including the financial services, healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors.

Server Intellect has reached the number one position for the first time this year. They run Windows Server 2008 and are Microsoft Gold Partners, recently achieving Microsoft Security Solutions Competency.

This month sees four company sites using Linux, two using FreeBSD and one using Windows Server 2008.

Netcraft measures and makes available the response times of fifty leading hosting providers' sites. The performance measurements are made at fifteen minute intervals from separate points around the internet, and averages are calculated over the immediately preceding 24 hour period.

From a customer's point of view, the percentage of failed requests is more pertinent than outages on hosting companies' own sites, as this gives a pointer to reliability of routing, and this is why we choose to rank our table by fewest failed requests, rather than shortest periods of outage.

Further information on the measurement process and current measurements are available.
