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 power of the VPS as well as its stability over time.
  • Network Transfers measure download and upload speed between the VPS and servers located nearby.
