In VpsBenchmark's opinion

Feature Value Comment
UI Friendliness 

Very complex UI.
Finding how to connect to the VPS for the first time is a challenge. No way to associate public keys to VM on starter packages.

New browser tab opens for pretty much every click.

Quality of Service 

Several AliYun processes running on the VM.

Hourly billing, ssh keys are unavailable on starter packages.
