Benchmark – SolaDrive.com – OpenVZ Enterprise

Here is my benchmark test of my OpenVZ Enterprise plan at SolaDrive.com, that provided me with this VPS for free. Thank you. And I have to say that they top my Top 20 list just now. They got a UnixBench score of 3.554, 800 points more then the second place. You really get value for your money if you go for a SolaDrive account.
