Nexusbytes Ryzen KVM VPS in Singapore gets an Upgrade

  • VPS Review
  • 6 min read

In November 2020, I decided to upgrade the Nexusbytes Ryzen KVM VPS in Singapore, and by end of December 2020, the New York VPS will be discontinued. Below are the results from the benchmarks for the upgraded server in Singapore.

Update February 2022: This service was discontinued in Mid-2021, but as on January 2022, I have re-subscribed to a VPS in Singapore under a special offer posted by Nexusbytes. The benchmark results for the same has been added in lieu of the “incomplete” YABS that was posted earlier.
