One year and happy
Reviewer: Bob Fried, 30 June 2008
I've been hosting with OCS for over a year and I couldn't be happier. They've been responsive, knowledgeable and patient. Reliability has been perfect.

A year later, all is good
Reviewer: Ted Newkirk, 19 May 2008
Been with OCS for over five years now, and have had them hosting our Rails CMS for the past year.

We are amazingly happy with the up-time, customer support, and overall good experience with OCS.

Most reliable rails host ever?
Reviewer: Charles Jolley, 14 June 2007
OCS has expertly helped us migrate our Rails web application from one server to three. They've been there every step of the way and routinely gone the extra mile to help make sure we succeed.

We worked with a number of other hosters in the past, but OCS has really excelled.

The Best?
Reviewer: Hugh Bien, 14 May 2007
Support answers my emails on average 15 minutes. The longest time I've ever had to wait for an email reply has been 40 minutes. And it usually comes from the CEO himself.

They have shared hosting, VPS (Gentoo option!), and managed dedicated hosting, so you can grow your application with them.

On the downside, the shared hosting plans are a little pricier than other places (but not extremely expensive).

If you're willing to pay a little extra, this is the place to host your Rails application.

Fantastic responsiveness
Reviewer: TGND Corporation, 23 March 2007
Based on the reviews here I chose OCS about three weeks ago for Ruby on Rails hosting. I'm really just getting started in this world, but I can already report that of the half-dozen requests I've made for technical support, all of them have gotten immediate (inhumanly fast) responses demonstrating solid commitment to customer service. This makes me feel very confident about hosting my sites with OCS.

Your search for the perfect host is over...
Reviewer: BA3 Software LLC, 26 February 2007
For the last 10 years, I have interacted with dozens of hosting companies from the small scale projects to high profile sites for Fortune 100 companies, and I believe that OCS Solutions is definitely high among the very best.

I found them looking for a cost-effective but reliable solution to host my Ruby on Rails applications... and after reading the Linux.com articles written by their CEO on scaling Rails, and probing them through email... I was quickly sold.

They are coders themselves, they are at the cutting edge of technology, they know what they are talking about. I used to be a Windows developer, and they made the transition to Linux easy for me. My applications grew very fast... and when it meant adding a new server every week, or helping to troubleshoot my application at 4:00am every night... they were there for me... fastcgi, mongrel, memcached, pound, lighttpd, clustering databases... they have been extremely knowledgeable and effective across the board.

You will get to know them by their first names, and really, you are not getting a simple hosting service here, you are getting a knowledgeable and dedicated operations team to support you, which turned out for me to be essential to the success of my projects.

The Best
Reviewer: destiney, 13 January 2007
I've been hosting at OCS Solutions for almost 2 years now. The level of service I've received in that time has been great. These guys will go out of their way to help you without hesitation.

OCS Solutions employees are experienced too. They actually develop applications using Rubyonrails so they know it well. They're there figuring out the cutting edge new Rails stuff just like me.

The cost at OCS Solutions is unbelievably low compared to other similar shared hosting providers. Look for yourself and compare. My site isn't ever slow or unreachable like some hosts I've used, and load on the machine my sites are on is always low when I look at it.

Oh yeah, and don't tell anyone but they even gave me a shell account on another box at another hosting facility they run so I could use IRC unrestricted through the company firewall. Didn't cost me a penny extra either.

Really nice folks all around.

Here is my main site if you wanna test it out:
