DigitalOcean Performance Consistency

Performance of DigitalOcean cloud servers over the long term.


The provider consistency score shows how much variation can be expected between 2 servers of the same type at the same provider. It is not an indicator of the level of performance of the provider servers.

To generate the consistency score, we take the price weighted performance score of all trials of the provider, we calculate the coefficient of variation (standard deviation / average) of those and bring this number into the 0 to 100 range. Only providers with 5 trials or more and 4 plans or more represented at VPSBenchmarks receive a consistency score.

A high consistency score (>65) means the performance of all DigitalOcean servers is consistent trials after trials across all plans over a long period of time. The consistency scores of all providers can be found on the provider consistency ranking page.

Consistency Score: 57 / 100


This table shows all recent trials of DigitalOcean with their overall grade (average of the 5 category grades). Columns in the table are sorted by VPS monthly price.
