Supermicro Motherboards – They work well and have proven chipsets.
3Ware RAID Cards: They’re one of the best in the industry. They work and I’ve never lost data with them. Remember to buy the battery backup option.
Supermicro Cases: Talk about seriously over-engineered cases. They cool well and are built to last. Quality beyond anything on the market.
OCZ SSD Drives: The best on the market. End of Discussion.
StrongVPN: When your ISP is throttling you and you need a good VPN measure to get around the throttling (Netflix freezing for example)
Linode: One of three cloud providers I recommend and use. Their customer support is second to none. Their bandwidth and architecture is rock-solid and the interface is much easier to use than any of the others.
