Benchmark – natcoweb.com – Golden plan

I have dome my benchmark test on a Golden VPS plan from natcoweb.com. They just released a new SSD based VPS line. The results can you see in this test, they have really good disk speeds and IO. Not so fast CPU. Still, read the test and look for your self.

Server location: USA, Clifton, NJ
*Golden* –$45.95/ mo
Plan info:
KVM – 1024 MB RAM, 30 GB HDD , unmetered bandwidth.
Disk info: RAID 10 array
