Re-Test: OVZ VPS by Hostslick in the Netherlands


I had posted the benchmark results from Hostslick OVZ earlier. Over the past few months, there were some issues with the node – essentially a problem with Virtualizor VPS Control Panel, to be fair not entirely the provider’s fault.

The crux of the issue was that I was unable to log on to Virtualiser pane, and when I could the interface was slow, super slow To the extent that I was unable to even move my mouse cursor.In early March, Max form Hostslick moved the OVZ VPS to a new node, which meant a new IP and essentially having to install from scratch. Today, I decided to run a series of benchmark tests on this VPS. Below are the results:
