We have run a full suite of performance tests on the cx2-2x4 VPS plan of IBM Cloud. VPSBenchmarks bought, setup the server and started the tests.
On this page, you'll find:
|Provider||Plan||Monthly price||Long term discounted price||Hourly billing||Num CPU cores||Disk space (GB)||Memory (GB)|
Minimum: 1 year
|Datacenter||CPU type||CPU details||OS, Kernel and Virtualization||Data transfer (GB)|
|Toronto, Canada||Intel Xeon Processor (Cascadelake)||
Hyperthreading ON: yes
Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS
Max bandwidth: 3000Mbps
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, 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: 37
|Web Performance||Raw CPU Power||Performance Stability||Disk IO Performance||Network Performance|

It took 20 seconds from the time the order took place to the time this instance was ready to accept connections.
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.

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 IBM Cloud - cx2-2x4 VPS plan.
We have performed large file transfers from the IBM Cloud - cx2-2x4 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?
