VPS Benchmarks – CPU & I/Ops + RAM Virtual Private Server & Dedicated Server Hosting Head-to-Head

The best VPS is a VPS with no downtime, solid uplink, no overcrowding and no disruption to your services.

Other general factors can play into VPS and offshore hosting when it comes to the law.

Does your web server hosting company respond to abuse reports or DMCA requests?

Do they notify you of new malware or in the wild exploits that affect your services?

I have operated servers with Digital Ocean, Vultr, AWS, OVH, 24shells, HostKey, Alexhost, Packet.net, yourserver.se,

For the purpose of this tutorial we will be looking at various servers and I will be providing the speed tests. The tests verify how fast the CPU’s are and how faste the read/write of the drives are. These are a good indicator of how good a VPS is without taking into consideration business decisions of the VPS company.

Vultr VPS Review

Vultr takes a sweet spot in my heart. Why? Because they were how I learned how to linux… At the time when they started they were the cheapest little VPS provider for mission critical ops.

Recently VULTR added their new High Frequency servers with newer CPU’s and NVMe drives!

Here’s one of our tests on a 32GB RAM with 512 NVMe SSD and 8 core servers in Amsterdam:

SO:         CentOS Linux release 7.6.1810 (Core) N 64 bits
kernel: 3.10.0-957.21.3.el7.x86_64
virtual: It is not virtual, is dedicated
cpu: Virtual CPU 6db7dc0e7704
vcpu: 8 cores / 7584.00 bogomips
RAM: 32011 MB (0% used) / swap 0 MB (0% used)
HD: 570G (1% used) / inkling speed 2.1 GB/s
cachefly 10MB: 192 MB/s (probably Gigabit Port)

Disk Speed
I/O (1st run) : 769 MB/s
I/O (2nd run) : 743 MB/s
I/O (3rd run) : 763 MB/s
Average I/O : 758.333 MB/s

Here’s one of our tests on a 2GB RAM with 64GB NVMe SSD and single core servers in Sydney, less consistent but around 50% faster..
