QuickWeb VPS Benchmark

Unix Benchmark results from QuickWeb using unixbench v 5.1.2. QuickWeb offers 2 Core i5 750 @ 2.67GHz cores on their Germany node.

Brilliant result!. I am really impressed with the benchmark numbers because this is pretty close to the benchmark results of 1024MB OpenVZ with another provider that I posted earlier.

Specs: 512MB OpenVZ running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 32bit

  1. quite impressive bench mark..i used knownhost managed vps, it was less then this.

    Did you try sharkspace vps to benchmark?

  2. Hey Asim,

    Fellow LEB follower here. Can you give me the IP of your QuickWeb Germany VPS, for a ping test from my part of the world?

    You can email me if you don’t want to post it here.

  3. Quickweb also offers a SSD OpenVZ VPS over in California, and I’m looking around for specs on those. Possible to do benchmarks? Thanks for this top google results article.
