Hosting recommendation

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

Hello fellow members,

I have an existing cPanel server with ~500 domains on it, that counts for about 400 users. Since the server is getting old (was purchased in 2007) and runs on SATA 7200rpm drives, I am considering moving to Managed VPS. What would you guys recommend that I should do? Is VPS good enough or should I consider renting a managed dedicated server, if so, which providers would you recommend? Hosting has to be in EU (not UK).
Another option is, to replace the hard drives with SAS, but as I’ve read from server specs, I have to replace some stuff…

Current server specifications are:

Product Name: ProLiant DL160 G6
Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5504 @ 2.00GHz (Quad-Core)
12GB RAM
2x500GB 7200RPM SATA – RAID 1
1x500GB 7200RPM SATA – Backup HDD

Current stats are:
