OVH isn't really production grade hosting, so it's not quite fair to use them for comparison. On the flipside, SoftLayer has been overpriced for a while now, and the IBM acquisition really didn't help any.

Thankfully, there are a plethora of dedicated server providers out there, which can easily beat Amazon's uptime record while still being considerably more cost effective without going as cheap as OVH.

Can you tell about other dedicated server providers you mention. I am on lookout for one.

Best place to look is the webhostingtalk.com forums. There are a ton of providers who are active there, and people also often post reviews and outage reports.
