We have run a full suite of performance tests on the 2GB 1core VPS plan of Amazon Lightsail.
On this page, you'll find:
|Provider||Plan||Monthly price||Hourly billing||Num CPU cores||Disk space (GB)||Memory (GB)|
|Amazon Lightsail||2GB 1core||$10.00||Yes||
|Datacenter||CPU type||CPU details||OS||Data transfer (GB)||Kernel and Virtualization||WebApp versions|
|us-east-1a||Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2686 v4 @ 2.30GHz||
|Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS||3000||
Note: the CPU details Frequency is the frequency observed at the start of the trial. It may vary as the trial progresses.
Grades are calculated by combining results from web, sysbench, endurance, network transfers and remote timing tests.
Grade A is best, grade F is worst.
Follow the letter links to find the test results backing the grade.
Overall Score: 39
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 2020 rankings to find the best VPS in each price range.
