Best VPS Rankings
Every month, VPSBenchmarks test between 10 and 15 new VPS. For every one of them, we measure 25 different metrics over several days and we use them to calculate grades in 5 categories including CPU power, disk IO speed and network speed.
Finally we rank all instances tested during the past 12 months
into 6 price ranges going from $0-5 to $60-100.
Featured Providers can publish announcements on vpsbenchmarks.com free of charge.
Cloud Providers: be Featured on VPSBenchmarks
Make sure your products can be found where users search for their next purchase. A "Featured Provider" subscription gives you your own provider page and guarantees your VPS plans are included in Best VPS rankings, Screener and comparison pages.
There are several ways to find the cloud server that fits your requirements. If you know the features that are needed from the provider, use the Provider Finder. If what matters is the price and the specs of the servers, simply go through the list of VPS plans. If performance is the deciding factor then use the Screener or the Best VPS rankings.
The Screener lists all VPS from all providers with their latest grades. It allows filtering by price, by size (number of CPU cores, memory, disk space,...) or by provider and the list can be sorted by performance in the category of your choice.
Benchmark your own servers
With "Private Trials", the same benchmarks that run on all VPS at vpsbenchmarks.com will run on the servers of your choice. The results are private and you will be able to compare them to any other public benchmark on this website.
It just takes a server running Ubuntu and its connection information to start a Private Trial.
Generate a customized report in a few clicks that compares the performance of any server from any provider tested at VPSBenchmarks. All results are certified by VPSBenchmarks and after you purchase it, the PDF report can be freely distributed to your target audience.
Cloud Storage Prices
Cloud storage is essential to share or move data around servers and it is critical to backup your data. But there are many types of storage to choose from, the options vary slightly between providers and the pricing is complex, making comparisons difficult.
The Cloud Storage Pricing page explains and summarizes all options. Storage prices are collected from all providers that offer storage and are presented in a way that facilitates comparisons.
In Depth Performance Analysis
There is a lot more to vpsbenchmarks.com than just synthetic grades and scores. For every trial, a complete set of metrics is collected and processed. They can all be reviewed in the individual VPS trial pages and individual metrics can be compared for any given set of plans. There is a performance or stability metric for every possible usage of a VPS:
- Web Server: compare the Web tests metrics: latency and capacity.
- CI testing, CPU intensive tasks: compare the Sysbench CPU and Endurance test metrics.
- File server: compare the Sysbench Disk IO and Network Transfers test metrics.
For a side by side, high level comparison of 2 providers, go to the Provider comparison page.
CPU Models by Provider
Curious about the CPU models that providers run inside in their hosts? Then take a look at the List of CPUs used by each provider.
Performance by CPU models
But what kind of performance can you get out of a specific CPU model? The CPU model list by Sysbench performance has the answer, it shows the performance level that be reached for each CPU model.
VPS Provisioning Times
How long does it take for a VPS to be ready for use after it's ordered? We have collected the provisioning times for all VPS tested at vpsbenchmarks.com.
How does it work?
VPSBenchmarks purchases VPS the way any customer would and deploys an exhaustive suite of benchmarks on each one of them. We first run web server performance tests where we measure web server response time, maximum capacity of the server and system metrics. This is followed by network bandwidth tests at maximum speed. Then we run a full suite of Sysbench tests to measure CPU, disk and memory performance. And as if this was not enough, to make sure the performance stays stable over time, we run a 24 hour sustained CPU endurance test.
The full set of tests is called a "trial". You can follow the progression of the tests while they run by exploring the Trials page.
