I tried two other VPS providers before moving to Caneris and read dozens of reviews. First it was hazenet, then steadfast. Both advertised nice packages but when I tried to deploy my servers, I soon found they could not deliver on their promises.

With Caneris the bandwidth was always there but so was the memory and CPU resources the others lacked. I found the VPS often performed faster than my home computer (3ghz/8gb ram/single hdd). that's beyond my expectation for a virtual system.

An objective example is a LAMP installation from tasksel in ubuntu 10.04 x32:
real system: about 20 minutes
Caneris VPS: about 15 minutes
hazenet: failure (problems with their custom rhel, debian and ubuntu kernels)
steadfast: over 12 hours (at which point I told them to cancel my service)

The setup time was less than an hour from signup to when I could log in and start managing.
The only way I could see them do anything better is either offer more than 2 VPS packages or allow some kind of customization (different ram/hdd,etc) but the majority will probably fall into the 2 packages.
