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 DigitalOcean and Vpsdime. 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
DOcean CPU Optimized 4GB 52.0ms
DOcean Standard 4GB 2 cores 54.0ms
DOcean Standard 1GB 1 core 72.8ms
DOcean 1GB 3 cores 76.0ms
DOcean Standard 2GB 1 core 96.0ms
Vpsdime Premium 8GB 68.0ms
Vpsdime Premium 4GB 72.8ms
Vpsdime 6GB $7 79.7ms
Vpsdime 12GB $14 Virtuozzo 80.5ms


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 DigitalOcean and Vpsdime. These are the Sysbench CPU test results:


Rate of operations

Higher is better

Provider Plan Operations per second
DOcean CPU Optimized 4GB 913.0
DOcean Standard 4GB 2 cores 744.9
DOcean Standard 1GB 1 core 397.8
DOcean Standard 2GB 1 core 306.2
Vpsdime Premium 8GB 764.5
Vpsdime Premium 4GB 204.3
Vpsdime 6GB $7 1169.7
Vpsdime 12GB $14 Virtuozzo 1526.6


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 DigitalOcean and Vpsdime.


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.

Note: Remote timings may not be available for all plans.

Remote Latency per Plan

Lower is better

Provider Plan Average remote request duration
DOcean CPU Optimized 4GB 364.8ms
DOcean Standard 4GB 2 cores 340.8ms
DOcean Standard 1GB 1 core 361.8ms
DOcean 1GB 3 cores 342.4ms
DOcean Standard 2GB 1 core 336.2ms
Vpsdime Premium 8GB 318.0ms
Vpsdime Premium 4GB 320.6ms
Vpsdime 6GB $7 320.6ms
Vpsdime 12GB $14 Virtuozzo 321.4ms

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


Network Transfers

We have performed large file transfers from the DigitalOcean and Vpsdime 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
DOcean CPU Optimized 4GB 567.4Mbps
DOcean Standard 4GB 2 cores 1400.3Mbps
DOcean Standard 1GB 1 core 1390.9Mbps
DOcean 1GB 3 cores 1451.3Mbps
DOcean Standard 2GB 1 core 198.1Mbps
Vpsdime Premium 8GB 1430.8Mbps
Vpsdime Premium 4GB 528.0Mbps
Vpsdime 6GB $7 452.7Mbps
Vpsdime 12GB $14 Virtuozzo 1403.7Mbps

Network Transfers measurements including download and upload speeds can be compared for DigitalOcean and Vpsdime 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.

Note: Endurance metrics may not be available for all plans.

Average number of operations per hour

Higher is better

Provider Plan Average ops/hour
DOcean CPU Optimized 4GB 7659.7
DOcean Standard 4GB 2 cores 5959.0
DOcean Standard 1GB 1 core 3023.6
DOcean 1GB 3 cores 3819.9
DOcean Standard 2GB 1 core 1398.7
Vpsdime Premium 8GB 3519.8
Vpsdime Premium 4GB 1825.0
Vpsdime 6GB $7 5338.7
Vpsdime 12GB $14 Virtuozzo 8252.9
