VPS from Virtual Machines (Virmach) : Benchmarks in 2022

In this post, you will find results from benchmarks on two Virtual Private Servers from Virmach, located in Amsterdam and New Jersey, respectively.These servers had been ‘idling’ for the past few months. In 2022, I had decided to really cut down on the number of VPS benchmarks and reviews I publish on this blog, but as I have posted elsewhere, these servers were `looking lost and sad`. So, I decided to reinstall the OS (Debian 11 for one, Ubuntu 20.04 on the other) and re-run the benchmarks. Benchmark of VPS by Virmach

Background: VPS from Virmach

Virtual Machines or “Virmach” area popular provider on the Low End Talk forums among others. I have published benchmarks on their servers on this blog previously.Currently in my “VPS Collection”. previously I had two servers from them in the US- New York and Chicago. Now the servers are in New Jersey, USA and Amsterdam in the Netherlands. I had published results from benchmark on VPS in New Jersey previously. This was an offer during Black Friday 2020. The servers in Amseterdam, I signed up for in August 2021. So how do these servers perform after 15 and 8 months, respectively? Read on to learn more. Note: The aim behind these benchmarks is to put these servers to production. Later today, I will test out the new version of Webinoly.Or maybe connect Server Avatar to these “twins” – now I have two licenses for the Server Avatar server management control panel.

Results from Benchmarks on Servers from Virmach

Below you will find the results from running two benchmarks each on both the servers. I ran YABS (Yet Another Benchmarking Script) and `bench.monster` tests on both of them. For bench.monster, I used the `–india` flag, that is, the results from Speedtest are specific for Indian cities.

Wrapping it up

This is probably one of the last benchmarks you will see published on this site. I have two more scheduled for this month- nearly one year review of VPS by Webhosting24; and a final one for a provider that shall remain un named for now. Over the past few days I have updated several of the old blog posts where I had published these benchmarks. You can find the updates from the benchmark and reviews page.
