Today we are looking at WisHosting KVM SSD servers with the following specs:
- Intel Xeon E5 1630v3 host node
- 1 vCPU
- 6GB RAM
- 60GB Disk
- SSD Disk Type
- Unmetered Monthly Bandwidth
- 250 Mbps Port
- $5.33 per month (quarterly payment; otherwise $5.99 per month)
- KVM Virtualization
- Location: Canada or France
The results of the LEBRE scoring methodology (using the lower $5.33 amount) is as follows:
Compared to REBOX1, the value of this WisHosting KVM offering is very poor in terms of port speed. However, it offers superb value with unmetered bandwidth! At this port speed with unmetered bandwidth, you will probably not run into monthly bandwidth cap issues (it’s a shared pipe so you may or may not achieve the theoretical maximum).
It offers somewhat weak value in terms of number of host node Passmark performance, number of vCPUs and disk type, but in return you get exceptional value for RAM and disk size.
The overall LEBRE score of 150 of this WisHosting offering beats the reference REBOX1 by a large margin due to its extremely strong value proposition in terms of bandwidth (you pretty much don’t have to worry about extra charges busting a monthly cap) and the generous 6GB RAM offered. It should perform well for most use cases.
TL;DR If RAM and bandwidth are your thing, then you can’t go wrong with this box.
