This is my review for VPS with KVM-4G plan
2 vCore
4 GB RAM
80 GB NVMe

I plan to use this machine as Windows desktop - with Visual Studio - machine to be used for coding and testing AI and Machine Learning algorithms.

Here is a benchmark to start with

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

 CPU Cores    : 2 @ 3504.000 MHz x86_64 16384 KB Cache
 CPU Flags    : AES-NI Enabled & VM-x/AMD-V Enabled
 Load Average : 0.36, 0.24, 0.11
 Total Space  : 68G (1012M ~2% used)
 Total RAM    : 3931 MB (64 MB + 300 MB Buff in use)
 Total SWAP   : 974 MB (0 MB in use)

Initial observation -
1. The disk I/O are excellent ... better than any VPS I had so far (including Contabo VPS with NVMe disk).
2. The internet speeds are great as well
3. Most important, that is most special for any programmer, the best single core CPU performance for any VPS

Now, on the not-so-good part
1. OS Reinstall is done manually by @Shakib and his support team. This should be an automated process
2. Personally I feel that HostCram has started this on a high quality scale, maintaining excellent customer service while expanding the customer base and business, will be key factor and challenge.

Overall, I am extremely happy with the VPS performance. More benchmark tests for this VPS to follow in further posts.

Thanks for reading.

    That is correct.

    If you have questions about any benchmarks tests shared here, feel free to ask.
