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 AtlanticNet and Alibaba Cloud. 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
Atlantic G2 1GB 116.0ms
Atlantic G2 2GB 86.0ms
Alibaba 1GB 1 core 84.0ms
Alibaba ecs.t5-lc1m1.small 68.0ms
Alibaba ecs-t5-c1m1-large 55.0ms
Alibaba ecs.n4.large 66.0ms
Alibaba ecs.c5.large 65.0ms

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 AtlanticNet and Alibaba Cloud. These are the Sysbench CPU test results:



Rate of operations

Higher is better

Provider Plan Operations per second
Atlantic G2 1GB 279.0
Atlantic G2 2GB 574.3
Alibaba 1GB 1 core 317.5
Alibaba ecs.t5-lc1m1.small 328.4
Alibaba ecs-t5-c1m1-large 657.6
Alibaba ecs.n4.large 759.2
Alibaba ecs.c5.large 556.0

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 AtlanticNet and Alibaba Cloud.


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
Atlantic G2 1GB 346.8ms
Atlantic G2 2GB 350.2ms
Alibaba 1GB 1 core 504.4ms
Alibaba ecs.t5-lc1m1.small 335.0ms
Alibaba ecs-t5-c1m1-large 450.8ms
Alibaba ecs.n4.large 495.6ms
Alibaba ecs.c5.large 508.0ms

Detailed remote timings measurements including connection time, TLS handshake time, and response time can be compared for AtlanticNet and Alibaba Cloud on the Remote Timings Comparison page.


Network Transfers

We have performed large file transfers from the AtlanticNet and Alibaba Cloud 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
Atlantic G2 1GB 474.4Mbps
Atlantic G2 2GB 568.8Mbps
Alibaba 1GB 1 core 317.7Mbps
Alibaba ecs.t5-lc1m1.small 80.9Mbps
Alibaba ecs-t5-c1m1-large 114.8Mbps
Alibaba ecs.n4.large 110.6Mbps
Alibaba ecs.c5.large 109.9Mbps

Network Transfers measurements including download and upload speeds can be compared for AtlanticNet and Alibaba Cloud 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
Atlantic G2 1GB 1163.7
Atlantic G2 2GB 1987.0
Alibaba 1GB 1 core 1435.6
Alibaba ecs.t5-lc1m1.small 957.9
Alibaba ecs-t5-c1m1-large 3185.5
Alibaba ecs.n4.large 3189.7
Alibaba ecs.c5.large 4873.6
