Test Results

  • Sysbench tests are run once at the end of each trial. They push the VPS to its limit but for a few minutes only.
  • Remote timings are collected continuously from 4 different continents.
  • The Web performance test lasts for the whole duration of the trial (several days) and reports the response time and system metrics of a popular website running a Ruby on Rails application backed by a Postgres database.
  • Endurance performance tests push the VPS CPU to its limits for several hours straight and will reveal the raw poser of the VPS as well as its stability over time.

Sysbench CPU Performances


We ran Sysbench tests on this VPS, including CPU tests, random and sequential, read and write IO tests and memory tests.
