VPS Provisioning Times

During each VPS trial, we recorded the time it took for the VPS to start accepting connections after it was ordered. Sometimes, the instance provisioning was delayed by billing shenanigans: those delays are excluded from the numbers below.

All numbers below are numbers of seconds.
