I sure hope the new Seattle location does not exhibit the same network and/or hardware issues the Georgia location seems to have.
The location here doesn't have anything to do with the instability we've been seeing lately. If anything, it's actually better than if it were still in TX. The instability was mostly due to buggy kernel's released by OpenVZ which we've since patched.
Since we have those bugs patched, stability should be getting much better moving forward.
