VPS Showdown – December 2020 – DigitalOcean vs. Lightsail vs. Linode vs. UpCloud vs. Vultr

0 Comment

With this month’s post being the final one of the year, I thought it was best to get back to a comparison that included all of the providers that I cover. The last few months have not included Lightsail or UpCloud since they didn’t offer the types of plans I was covering, but they are back for this “$5 Showdown”.

I did include a few additional things in the overview this month, including hourly pricing and which providers offer DNS, firewalls, Kubernetes and a container registry.

As this year is coming to a close, Linode has added a firewall offering, which is currently in beta and their managed database offering is still no where in sight.

Other than that, things have been fairly quiet on the VPS front. As per usual this month’s comparison features Ubuntu 20.04 LTS on all of the servers. I spun up 3 instances with each provider at the $5 per month price point ($6 for Vultr’s High Frequency plan), and averaged the results accordingly.

Also worth noting, I did omit the speed test metrics again this month. For some reason I can’t get the servers in / around New York to use the server here at University of Texas in Austin. I’m hoping to make some improvements to my benchmark script over the holidays that will allow me to easily bring those back next year.

Transfer Rate (Kbyte/sec) 208.21 170.44 878.43 182.39 175.75

Conclusion

Pretty consistent with previous months, Vultr’s High Frequency plan performed exceptionally well compared to the standard plans with the other providers.

It was interesting to see UpCloud process more CPU events as well as Vultr taking back one of the Redis metrics from them, as UpCloud tends to crush the Redis category otherwise.

Linode’s Apache ab benchmark was exceptional, but as always, I feel like that metric should be taken with a grain of salt, as it’s wholly dependent on my home ISP and is subject to any throttling they end up doing (and they definitely do throttle me from time to time while running ab.

Super excited for what 2021 has to offer. DigitalOcean seems to continually position themselves as an AWS alternative with a more robust offering of services. Hopefully Linode can get managed databases over the line and maybe some of the other providers have some tricks up their sleeves for next year too!

  • DigitalOcean, new accounts receive $100 in credit (good for 60 days).
  • Linode, new accounts receive $100 in credit (good for 60 days).
  • UpCloud, new accounts receive $25 in credit.
  • Vultr, new accounts receive $100 in credit (good for 30 days).

VPS Showdown – November 2020 – DigitalOcean vs. Linode vs. Vultr

It’s that time of the year again, new version of Ubuntu has been released! Sadly (and expectedly) both UpCloud and Amazon are slow to add the latest and greatest (albeit, not LTS) version of Ubuntu to their Linux distro offering. With that, this month I’ll be omitting both pr…
