- Posted in VPS by with comments

I found this great little KVM from LETbox on the lowendtalk forums and thought i'd do some benchmarking on it.

  • 400 GB Dedicated HDD space (Raid10 SAS)
  • 10GB x SnapShot Backup

  • KVM/Proxmox
  • $5.95/month / $65 /Yearly
CPU model:  Common KVM processor
Number of cores: 2
CPU frequency:  3300.022 MHz
Total amount of RAM: 1996 MB
Total amount of swap:  MB
System uptime:   2 days, 20:46,       
I/O speed:  92.0 MB/s
Bzip 25MB: 4.94s
Download 100MB file: 87.0MB/s

The server is on Proxmox, has a lot of different ISOs to choose from and is quite fast. Support are fairly helpful, and downtime is minimal but it has happened before. They reimbursed my account for a small downtime without even asking, so this is pretty good.

This is perfect for a < 400GB nextCloud or Plex setup. Mine recently exceeded this amount, so I've moved onto a different option from another provider, but my time with LETbox has been great!
