[Review] Contabo VPS M SSD

Well, I've been a lurker for some time, but I decided to make my first post today. I just bought a contabo vps, and as many said, the I/O speeds were really bad at the start, but a quick phonecall to them fixed it, now I get somewhat decent speeds for it.

I bought a VPS M SSD that they claim it has 6 cores, 16GB Ram, 400 GB SSD and Ubuntu 19.10.

So, as I said before, after the phone call, these are the speeds that I'm getting:

I'll be honest, these are not as bad as people claim here, I expected much worse. I've not released my project yet (Game server on a somewhat toxic community), so I can't talk about the DDOS or load management, but so far, I'm happy with my purchase (Ofc, after the phonecall). Hope this helps someone that was on the same position as me.

    I remember that they have two I/O settings option, which depends on what your purpose is.

    One is that sequential R/W are fast. As you provide, test results showed that I/O is more than 200MB/s , but random R/W will become slow.

    The other is that random R/W is fast, but I/O is not higher than 200MB/s during sequential R/W speed measurement, which is also preset configured.

    Can you post geekbench 4 result?

  • porshe1porshe1 Member

    So what about their 1000 mbps speed ?
    I am planning to buy so whether it is good or bad ?

    Pretty Fast ...

    It is shared 1000 Mbit/s. Although, keep in mind, this still applies:

    Unlimited traffic: No additional costs due to traffic, you can use 100 Mbit/s without any bandwidth restrictions or throttling. (Only in case your server has an uplink faster than 100 Mbit/s: If average traffic consumption continuously exceeds 100 Mbit/s over a timespan of at least 9 days the connection is switched to 100 Mbit/s).

    Congrats on your first post

    It's good or bad

    I got one of their new US servers, definitely great for the price, but I just plan to run Smokeping on it and some stuff to test software.

    You will only get Gigabit on the largest plan.
    That's the reason I cancelled mine. I was happy with the server itself but no Gigabit no deal :(

    I asked the support to upgrade the port speed and limit the transfer. Answer was: nope, no custom deals :(

    Otherwise if you do not need Gigabit or dedicated resources they are quite good!
