Performance Grades

To summarize the performance of each VPS plan, we generated grades based on the various tests that were run: web, sysbench, endurance and remote timing tests. Each grade focuses on one aspect of the VPS speed (cpu, disk IO, network IO...) and can be made of one or more of the metrics generated during the tests.

Grade A is best, grade F is worst.

Follow the letter links to find the test results backing the grade.

How are grades calculated?

The grades above are based on the following test results.


Web Response Times

We ran a database intensive web application with ~100,000 hits per day for several days on VPSs from Dreamhost and 1and1 IONOS. This is the average response time measured locally on the VPS for each plan we tested.



Local Response Time per Plan

Lower is better

Provider Plan Average response time
Dreamhost gp1_subsonic 101.0ms
Dreamhost gp1_supersonic 71.0ms
Dreamhost gp1.lightspeed 80.0ms
1and1 Cloud Server M 81.0ms
1and1 Cloud Server L 61.0ms
1and1 Cloud Server XL 59.0ms

During the Web Test, we collect response time metrics, CPU metrics and database performance metrics. All of those are measured locally on the VPS running the web server. All metrics can be compared on the Web Performance Comparison page.


Sysbench CPU Performances

We ran the full suite of Sysbench tests on VPS plans of Dreamhost and 1and1 IONOS. These are the Sysbench CPU test results:



Rate of operations

Higher is better

Provider Plan Operations per second
Dreamhost gp1_subsonic 274.8
Dreamhost gp1_supersonic 289.4
Dreamhost gp1.lightspeed 449.9
1and1 Cloud Server M 300.3
1and1 Cloud Server L 613.3
1and1 Cloud Server XL 704.3

Sysbench test results are also available for random disk IO tests, sequential disk IO tests and memory tests.

Review and compare all Sysbench numbers on the Sysbench Comparison page for Dreamhost and 1and1 IONOS.


Remote Timings

During the whole duration of the web performance test, we collected web response times from 5 different locations in the world. The chart below reports the average connection + TLS handshake latency from all 5 locations.


Remote Latency per Plan

Lower is better

Provider Plan Average remote request duration
Dreamhost gp1_subsonic 353.2ms
Dreamhost gp1_supersonic 375.4ms
Dreamhost gp1.lightspeed 356.8ms
1and1 Cloud Server M 517.2ms
1and1 Cloud Server L 506.8ms
1and1 Cloud Server XL 412.8ms

Detailed remote timings measurements including connection time, TLS handshake time, and response time can be compared for Dreamhost and 1and1 IONOS on the Remote Timings Comparison page.


Network Transfers

We have performed large file transfers from the Dreamhost and 1and1 IONOS VPS and we measured the speed of downloads and uploads.

The transfers involve multiple files, 10 threads and last for at least 10 seconds at maximum speed. The transfers are repeated 3 times from different servers and only the fastest transfer is reported here.


Download Speed per Plan

Higher is better

Provider Plan Network Download Speed
Dreamhost gp1_subsonic 251.8Mbps
Dreamhost gp1_supersonic 120.8Mbps
Dreamhost gp1.lightspeed 192.9Mbps
1and1 Cloud Server M 381.3Mbps
1and1 Cloud Server L 390.3Mbps
1and1 Cloud Server XL 257.8Mbps

Network Transfers measurements including download and upload speeds can be compared for Dreamhost and 1and1 IONOS on the Network Transfers Comparison page.


Sustained CPU Endurance Tests

We pushed the CPU of those VPS plans very hard for 24 hours straight.

This kind of tests shows how fast the VPS can go for long periods of time, how stable the performance is and it also gives clues on how overallocated the VPSs are.


Average number of operations per hour

Higher is better

Provider Plan Average ops/hour
Dreamhost gp1_subsonic 1272.3
Dreamhost gp1_supersonic 1388.3
Dreamhost gp1.lightspeed 2625.9
1and1 Cloud Server M 1458.5
1and1 Cloud Server L 2754.4
1and1 Cloud Server XL 6256.9
