Benchmark for VPS of Virmach, Hosthatch, Naranja

These three providers: Virmach, Hosthatch, and Naranja, are active on LET. They have got good reputation due to their good products or service etc.

I have VPS on all of them. So I took a benchmark with yabs.sh for the comparison of their performance, networking, disk IO etc.

This is the result of Virmach:

 Geekbench 5 test failed. Run manually to determine cause.

As you see, Virmach’s disk IO and network speed are common, not bad and also not good. But their CPU is very worse. This is a VPS with double cores, it even can’t finish geekbench’s test.

Then, this is the result of Hosthatch:

Hosthatch is well known for its storage VPS, their disk IO is always good. As you see above, the IO test gets a good result. Networking and CPU seem common.

The last part is for naranja:

Naranja is using AMD CPU, as you see geekbench for a single core can even get 934 scores. This is far better than Virmach and Hosthatch. Besides CPU performance, their disk IO and network speed are also not bad.

So my simple summary:

When you need a VPS for study purpose, Virmach is good, their price is cheap for the scale. That test configuration needs only 13 USD/year.

When you need a storage VPS with good disk IO, Hosthatch is suitable. Their storage plan especially the BF ones, are cheap and good.

When you need the CPU power as well as not bad IO/networking, Naranja is great choice. And their price is cheap, my test configuration needs only 9.x EUR/year.
