This week I will benchmark VPS instances from providers I work with or have recently worked with in the entry level segment ~ $5.00 a month to see where we are at.

Just the stats initially. Later I will provide some more depth and refer back to this.

OVH Cloud Starter $3.50 per month

Processor: 1 vCore
Memory: 2 GB
Storage: 20 GB SSD SATA
