VPS Showdown – January 2021 – DigitalOcean vs. Lightsail vs. Linode vs. UpCloud vs. Vultr

2 Comments

While I don’t usually make big changes to these posts month to month, I do try to refresh them every year or so. This year’s improvements include commas (on the larger numbers) and charts!

I’ve also made the decision to drop the High Frequency plan from Vultr in favor of their less expensive plan that marries up with the other provider’s price point. Since I’ve avoided certain providers because they don’t offer the same price point, it didn’t make sense to include the differently priced Vultr plan.

With regard to the data, there are a couple of metrics that I’ve decided to drop. The ab benchmark, which was always at the mercy of my own Internet connection and the Speed Test. The Speed Test may make a come back in the future, but since not every provider has a server in the same geographical region (looking at you AWS), it’s hard to do an apples to apples comparison since Speed Test only works against close servers. Close servers for one provider may not be close for another.

As per usual, I’ve spun up 3 server instances and averaged the results. Additional information about which distro and software versions have been moved down to the overview section.

Also, for the sake of being a non-biased reviewer, I am no longer going to be “picking a winner” and will be letting the data stand on it’s own. If nothing else, I’m tired of typing out “YMMV and you should weigh the needs of your application against these benchmarks, yadda yadda blah blah blah” every month.
