We just left SnowStorm hosting due to an outage they had. It wasn't so much the outage as the lack of updates regarding the status of restoration. After a week of downtime with no meaningful estimate on when service would be restored, we jumped ship. We moved to HosteHorde as a temporary home until we get properly set up on a private VPS server. So far, I'm pretty happy with performance, but I don't know if our server is still on a 'placement' node or not (typically a staging area where new clients are set up initially).
