"Off rankings" trials may either be previews where the VPS has been provisioned by the provider specifically for VPSBenchmarks, they may belong to a plan that exceeds the maximum number of plans that can be listed per provider or they're too old.

On this page, you'll find:

  • Price and specifications for the w6as.large plan.
  • The grades that summarize its performance in 5 categories based on the benchmarks results.
  • Links to the detailed benchmarks results that can be compared to other providers and other plans.

VPS Instance Provisioning Time

It took 55 seconds from the time the order took place to the time this instance was ready to accept connections.

All VPS provisioning times

Test Results

  • Web Runs: performance of a web application running on the server with locally generated load. Latencies and max request rate.
  • Sysbench: CPU, disk IO and memory speed tests.
  • Endurance: output over time of a long running cpu intensive application.
  • Network Transfers: maximum HTTP download and upload speeds between the VPS and servers located nearby.
  • Yabs: test suite that includes Geekbench CPU tests, Fio for disk IO and Iperf3 for network transfers.
  • Live Web Tests: latencies of a web application with live traffic.
  • Remote timings: latencies of a web application measured from 4 different continents.

Web Runs

During the Web Run tests, a web application is loaded with locally generated HTTP requests at various rates. We measure latencies and rate of errors at each load level.

Review and compare Genesis Public Cloud - w6as.large web runs with other cloud providers.


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 Genesis Public Cloud - w6as.large VPS plan.

Remote Timings

Response times for this VPS were continuously measured from 5 locations and 4 continents in the world. Each measure includes DNS resolution time, connection time, TLS handshake time and server response time.

Review and compare all Remote Timings numbers for the Genesis Public Cloud - w6as.large VPS plan.

Network Transfers

We have performed large file transfers from the Genesis Public Cloud - w6as.large 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.

Sustained CPU Endurance Run

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?
