Sysbench Performance


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 Amazon EC2 - a1.medium VPS plan.

Network Transfers


We have performed large file transfers from the Amazon EC2 - a1.medium 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 3 times from different nearby servers and only the fastest transfer is reported.
