We have run a full suite of performance tests on the ecs.n4.small VPS plan of Alibaba Cloud. VPSBenchmarks bought, setup the server and started the tests.
On this page, you'll find:
|Provider||Plan||Monthly price||Short term surcharge||Hourly billing||Num CPU cores||Disk space (GB)||Memory (GB)|
|Alibaba Cloud||ecs.n4.small||$13.66||On-demand price: $18.00/month (+31%).
Applies up to 30 days.
Note: the CPU details Frequency is the frequency observed at the start of the trial. It may vary as the trial progresses.
Warning: network bandwidth costs are not included in the price above.
Grades are calculated by combining results from web, sysbench, endurance, yabs (geekbench, fio, iperf3) and network transfers tests.
Grade A is best, grade F is worst. Follow the letter links to find the test results backing the grade.
Overall Score: 14
|Web Performance||Raw CPU Power||Performance Stability||Disk IO Performance||Network Performance|
Review the list of metrics that the grades above are calculated from.
Note: A low grade on a low price VPS does not necessarily mean the VPS is underperforming, the server may still perform better than other servers at the same price. Use the Price Weighted Grades or the Best VPS 2023 rankings to find the best VPS in each price range.

We ran Sysbench tests on this VPS, including CPU tests, random and sequential, read and write IO tests and memory tests.
Review and compare all Sysbench numbers for the Alibaba Cloud - ecs.n4.small VPS plan.
We have performed large file transfers from the Alibaba Cloud - ecs.n4.small VPS, both downloads and uploads and we measured the speed of the transfers.
The transfers involve multiple files, 10 threads and last for at least 10 seconds at maximum speed. The transfers are repeated 4 times from different nearby servers and only the fastest transfer is considered in grades and comparisons.
Can your VPS handle 24 hours of sustained CPU load without flinching? How much can it handle? Does the provider throttle your CPU after a while?
