This incident has been resolved.
Summary: VMware the Operating System (Hypervisor) that powers the physical servers in our v.1 VPS Platform, on a single physical host, crashed. Staff verified this was not caused by a issue with the physical server itself (bad memory, failed RAID controller, etc.) and once hardware checked out, and the physical server was rebooted and ran through diagnostic checks affected VPS servers were powered up in a random sequence selected by VMWare to keep the physical server from being overloaded during the VPS boot processes.
Initial troubleshooting, identification and diagnostics = ~40 minutes
Restarting affected VPS servers after diagnostics was complete = ~20 minutes

Ok the issue was identified, was not hardware related, just a fault at the VMware hypervisor level.
