With today's update, we are excited to announce performance-boosting hardware upgrades across the entire worldwide Vultr cloud! The Vultr infrastructure team has been working hard for the past several months to deploy refreshed hardware in all of our 15 locations featuring the blazing fast Intel Skylake CPU architecture.
Since inception, Vultr's 100% SSD compute plans have earned a reputation for reducing costs while also delivering industry-leading benchmarks. The brand new Skylake architecture is the next installment in our product roadmap and takes compute speeds to the next level. What does this mean for your web applications? A performance boost of up to 50% on new deployments!
Newly created VC2 compute instances priced at $10 and higher will receive priority assignment to our brand new Skylake architecture. Throughout 2018, our infrastructure team will be focusing on delivering more hardware and ensuring we are able to deliver as close to 100% Skylake assignment for all plans - with additional Skylake capacity going online soon!
There has never been a better time to accelerate your web application with the latest generation Intel hardware on the Vultr platform! Our detailed benchmarks show how our compute instances stack up against our previous architecture. Check out our detailed benchmarks or test for yourself by creating a new account!
