HazeNet Benchmark

Update (14-May-2011): HazeNet has been taken over by ThrustVPS / Rus Foster. Read more about it here

Update (29-Aug-2010): Please check the latest benchmark results from their XEON node, pretty awesome for a 1024MB VPS.

Unix Benchmark results from HazeNet VPS using unixbench v 5.1.2 (please note that these are Quad-Core benchmark and not the new i7s and XEON that they are offering)

Specs: 1GB / 50GB OpenVZ

  1. I've just signed up for HazeNET. Colin the CEO is terrific – very helpful and reasonable, with almost instant responses even on the weekend.

    I got 1339 UnixBench from Haze, with their 1024 plan on a Xeon E5405 host.

  2. Pingback: TechBytes » Blog Archive » HazeNet VPS Benchmark (latest from their XEON nodes)

  3. HazeNET bandwidth is good. HazeNET's OpenVZ implementation is moderate to good. HazeNET's uptime is poor. HazeNET's customer communication and billing is horrid.
