Data Hosting company

Dear Experts,

We have databases on dedicated servers being hosted by Peer1, and have been having numerous problems.  Both hardware and network, and are now looking to switch.
Since I do not have much experience in this, (Peer1 was in place from my predecessor) I would like to ask for your recommendations.

These are our requirements:
1.  Our databases need to be up 24/7, no interruptions.  Good support is imperative.
2.  We had an incident where the servers were up, but some of our users couldn't get to the databases because one route was down, so we need multiple entry paths.
3.  We would like to have the hosting company to do cloud backup.
4.  We need to be ISO 27001 compliant, so I need some control over the server security.

I would appreciate any advise/opinion.  Thank you.

I have experience with Sungard and Terremark.  I would highly recommend Terremark.  We used them for hosting our infrastructure in Europe out of their Amsterdam data center.  They did a fantastic job of infrastructure management and always communicated very well with us.  I know they also have a datacenter in Florida and Texas - maybe others now.  Anyway, it sounds like you are looking for a full feature hosting provider and therefore I would recommend you at least look and speak with a Terremark sales representative to see if they are a match for your needs.
