I've used http://softlayer.com/ in the past and highly recommend them.
They sell a wide range of dedicated servers, including ones that handle
up to 12 HDDs/SSDs, and servers with battery-backed RAID controllers
(I've been told they use mostly Adaptec cards as well as some 3ware
cards). In addition, all their servers are connected to a private
network you can VPN into, and all include IPMI for remote management
when you can't SSH into your server. They have a host of other
features; click on the Services tab on their site to find out more.
