Benchmark – 50tbcloud.com – Level 5

Here is my benchmark test of my Level 5 plan at 50TBcloud.com. They had a great offer on WHT, 80% off all plans. So I got a Level 5 plan thats normally cost $119/mo. I had big hopes for this plan, since I have seen some reviews stating that 50TBcloud has very good I/O speeds. Here is my benchmark test:

Server location: Chicago, USA
*Level 5* – $119 / mo
Plan info: OpenVZ/Cloud – 6 GB RAM, 300 GB , 50.000 GB BW!!
Disk info: SSD caching for high performance I/O, up to 5000 IOPS
