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 or stability (cpu, disk IO, network IO...) and is made of one or more metrics measured during the tests.

Grades are evenly distributed between A and F. A is best, F is worst.

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

In Depth...

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 cloud servers from Atlantic.Net and Genesis VMs. 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 89.0ms
Atlantic G2 2GB 89.0ms
Atlantic G2 4GB 99.0ms
Atlantic G2.8GB 123.0ms
GenVMs vm.t5sd.4xlarge 48.0ms
GenVMs vm.c5sd.xlarge 45.0ms

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 Atlantic.Net and Genesis VMs. These are the Sysbench CPU test results:



Rate of operations

Higher is better

Provider Plan Operations per second
Atlantic G2 1GB 305.1
Atlantic G2 2GB 609.3
Atlantic G2 4GB 582.7
Atlantic G2.8GB 897.1
GenVMs vm.t5sd.4xlarge 480.7
GenVMs vm.c5sd.xlarge 1012.4

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 Atlantic.Net and Genesis VMs.


Remote Timings

During the entire duration of the web performance test, we collected web response times from 5 different locations in the world. The chart below reports the connection establishment time + TLS handshake latency from all 5 locations. (That excludes the time spent on the server that is already measured in web response times above and it also excludes the DNS resolution time since it is not dependent on the provider).


Remote Latency per Plan

Lower is better

Provider Plan Average remote request duration
Atlantic G2 1GB 348.0ms
Atlantic G2 2GB 345.6ms
Atlantic G2 4GB 349.0ms
Atlantic G2.8GB 333.4ms
GenVMs vm.t5sd.4xlarge 323.8ms
GenVMs vm.c5sd.xlarge 322.8ms

Detailed remote timings measurements including connection time, TLS handshake time, and response time can be compared for Atlantic.Net and Genesis VMs on the Remote Timings Comparison page.


Network Transfers

We have performed large file transfers from the Atlantic.Net and Genesis VMs 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 515.0Mbps
Atlantic G2 2GB 563.0Mbps
Atlantic G2 4GB 334.6Mbps
Atlantic G2.8GB 546.5Mbps
GenVMs vm.t5sd.4xlarge 1246.1Mbps
GenVMs vm.c5sd.xlarge 718.4Mbps

Network Transfers measurements including download and upload speeds can be compared for Atlantic.Net and Genesis VMs on the Network Transfers Comparison page.


Sustained CPU Endurance Tests

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

This test 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 may be.


Average number of operations per hour

Higher is better

Provider Plan Average ops/hour
Atlantic G2 1GB 1100.2
Atlantic G2 2GB 2255.2
Atlantic G2 4GB 2271.2
Atlantic G2.8GB 3296.2
GenVMs vm.t5sd.4xlarge 4482.7
GenVMs vm.c5sd.xlarge 8849.4
