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.
The grades above are based on the following test results.
We ran a database intensive web application with ~100,000 hits per day for several days on VPSs from A2 Hosting and BuyVM. This is the average response time measured locally on the VPS for each plan we tested.
Local Response Time per Plan
Lower is better
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.
We ran the full suite of Sysbench tests on VPS plans of A2 Hosting and BuyVM. These are the Sysbench CPU test results:
Rate of operations
Higher is better
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 A2 Hosting and BuyVM.
