We've done tests on the server with persistence enabled and we are still experiencing the same problems. After disabling it all the issues seemed to disappear. This is even after last weeks hotfix which was supposed to have fixed the persistence corruption. We've now had GameServers permanently disable the persistence on our server, and all other local server admins/owners have followed our example and did the same thing (otherwise the game is unplayable).
On a further note I would like to add that there seems to be an additional issue with the loot respawn mechanics on persistence enabled servers. Nothing seems to respawn even after all the buildings have been emptied and the items that were in there were used or discarded.
We have no 'control panel' really with GameServers when it comes to DayZ SA. I've sent through an enquiry to them and asked whether or not they can do it from their side. I will confirm what their answer is via this issues notes.
All we currently can do on DayZ SA, hosted by GameServers, is a) kick players b) change server time c) manually restart the server d) change server name e) see player IDs / GUID's f) change amount of player slots g) change MOTD h) full wipe and re-install server i) and finally, change server type (between 1st and 3rd person).
DayZ SA server admins have very restricted/limited tools and rules that go with them, so much so that I would safely assume that all servers admins whom host via Vilayer are suffering as much as us.
In all honesty, I looked for notes on how to do that but couldn't trace anything. Do you perhaps have a link for me? Would gladly test this for you guys, and if it works you could use it as a 'solution' for other similar reports you receive.

every 20-40 min servers crash

In this case I would advise you to contact your GSP in order to pinpoint what would cause your server to crash.
According to the latest changelog (http://forums.dayzgame.com/index.php?/topic/211081-changelog-stable-049124971/ [^]), the instability on your server could be due to:
-Persistence (Events do not get loaded properly after server restart)
-Persistence (Server state can become corrupted due to grenades stored in containers)
