The VPSs at ARP are quite close to the metal.  I'm confident that we

having the ability to migrate the entire setup to new hardware at a
moment's notice, automatically by the ISP.

That would certainly be solved by moving to ARP.  Not to mention it
being primarily in LA instead of somewhere further away.
