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?

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 VPSs from Scaleway 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
Vpsdime Premium 8GB 68.0ms
Vpsdime Premium 4GB 72.8ms
Vpsdime 6GB $7 79.7ms
Scaleway START 1M 124.0ms
Scaleway C2S 137.7ms


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


Rate of operations

Higher is better

Provider Plan Operations per second
Vpsdime Premium 8GB 764.5
Vpsdime Premium 4GB 204.3
Vpsdime 6GB $7 1169.7
Scaleway START 1M 1904.9
Scaleway C2S 757.5


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 Scaleway 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
Vpsdime Premium 8GB 318.0ms
Vpsdime Premium 4GB 320.6ms
Vpsdime 6GB $7 320.6ms
Scaleway START 1M 469.2ms
Scaleway C2S 470.0ms

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


Network Transfers

We have performed large file transfers from the Scaleway 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
Vpsdime Premium 8GB 1430.8Mbps
Vpsdime Premium 4GB 528.0Mbps
Vpsdime 6GB $7 452.7Mbps
Scaleway START 1M 608.0Mbps
Scaleway C2S 698.7Mbps

Network Transfers measurements including download and upload speeds can be compared for Scaleway 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
Vpsdime Premium 8GB 3519.8
Vpsdime Premium 4GB 1825.0
Vpsdime 6GB $7 5338.7
Scaleway START 1M 3324.8
Scaleway C2S 371.9
