We have run a full suite of performance tests on the 4GB 2 cores VPS plan of UpCloud. VPSBenchmarks bought, setup the server and started the tests.

On this page, you'll find:

  • Price and specifications for the 4GB 2 cores 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.

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.

VPS Instance Provisioning Time

It took 50 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.

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 UpCloud - 4GB 2 cores 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 UpCloud - 4GB 2 cores VPS plan.

Network Transfers

We have performed large file transfers from the UpCloud - 4GB 2 cores 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?

Yabs.sh is a benchmark suite that runs Geekbench (CPU), Fio (storage) and Iperf3 (network) tests.
