Please recommend a VPS provider that can provision me three vps this weekend. Must have 24/7 support. Must have backup/restore facility.

New Zealand-based or US-based?

Hi. I would prefer NZ. Not particular about type. Each vps will host two or three ecommerce sites so I need a few ip addresses.

The only host I know of with true 24/7 support (not "after hours" support) is RimuHosting.
They have servers in NZ

You can provision yourself as many servers as you like 24x7 on - and each server only takes around 4 minutes.  Currently this means anything from the service catalog as customisations require a support ticket to be logged but you'll get same-day action on those anyway.

Fill ya boots :)

Ended up at RimuHosting - 24/7 support and pricing was the factor.
