MVPS Sweden Stockholm High Performance Cloud KVM VPS Test and Review

We recently tested the MVPS Sweden Stockholm High-Performance Cloud KVM VPS server, powered by an Intel(R) Xeon(R) Gold 6148 CPU. It’s a setup that includes 2 CPU cores, 4 GB of RAM, 50 GB NVMe SSD storage, a 150 Mbps internet link, 5 TB of data transfer, and a single IPv4 address. Our tests aimed to evaluate its performance across various benchmarks, focusing on storage, internet speed, and overall computing power.

About MVPS

MVPS, a Cyprus-based company founded in 2018, has carved a niche by specializing in Virtual Private Server (VPS) plans. MVPS offers four VPS plans, allowing customers to choose their preferred operating system and server location at purchase. The plans are competitively priced, and while they don’t come with free domain and SSL that you would typically get with shared web hosting, the features offered make the prices worthwhile.

One of the standout features of MVPS is its uptime. With a 99.98% uptime, MVPS ensures that your website is always accessible to your visitors. This is crucial for any website owner, as downtime can lead to lost visitors and revenue.

MVPS also offers automatic backups three times per week. This feature gives you peace of mind, knowing that your data is safe and can be restored in case of mishaps. You have full control over these backups, choosing when they should happen during the week.

Now, onto the user experience. MVPS has been praised for its user-friendly platform. Even if you’re not technically inclined, you’ll find it easy to manage your servers. This ease of use extends to installing popular platforms like WordPress, which can be installed for free.

In terms of performance, MVPS uses the QEMU KVM virtualizer. This technology is distributed on vast servers to provide customers with a rich virtualization experience. The use of SSDs assures high server performance.

Conclusion

The server’s I/O speed consistently hit 10.4 MB/s across multiple tests, which falls short of what you’d expect from a high-performance server, marking it as poor. Internet speed tests showed promising results, with upload speeds nearly maxing out the available bandwidth and download speeds maintaining solid performance across global locations. However, the server’s performance dipped significantly in Singapore. The Geekbench 6 Benchmark revealed a single-core score of 768 and a multi-core score of 1411, situating the server’s CPU power in the lower tier of what’s considered good by current standards.

UnixBench scores, which measure the server’s CPU performance under parallel load conditions, presented a significant improvement when utilizing both CPUs, pushing the index score to 1233.2. This demonstrates a robust ability to handle concurrent processes efficiently. However, this contrasted with the server’s basic disk speed and CPU benchmark tests, underlining a mixed performance profile.

In conclusion, while the MVPS Sweden Stockholm server boasts impressive internet speed capabilities and can efficiently manage simultaneous processes, its storage speed significantly lags. The CPU’s performance, though acceptable, doesn’t quite hit the high marks expected of a “high-performance” offering. Users prioritizing network performance and parallel processing might find value here, but those with intensive I/O requirements might need to look elsewhere.
