Best affordable VDS providers: Hetnzer vs Netcup vs PHP Friends/Data Forest vs BMDS
Let's assume all VDS providers use the latest AMD EPYC cpus.
Hetzner mentioned EPYC 7003 series, very possibly 64 core 128 threads ones; Netcup mentioned EPYC 7702, 64 core 128 threads; php friends mentioned AMD EPYC 7452, 32 core 64 threads.
Hetzner's cheapest VDS, $20, 2 vcpu (thread); Netcup, $10, 4 vcpu (thread); php friends, $8, 2 vcpu.
Then each big server can host about 50-60 Hetnzer vds, 25-30 Netcup vds, 25-30 php friends vds.
Hetzner's network port is 10 gbps, Netcup 2.5 gbps, php friends 1 gbps.
Therefore, Hetzner's vds basic bandwidth is 10/50=200 mbps, Netcup 100 mbps, php friends 50 mbps.
If the big server is dual socket, then Hetzner's vds basic bandwidth is 10/100=100 mbps, Netcup 50 mbps, php friends 25 mbps.
In other words, Hetzner's cheapest vds has one 7763 cpu core, 4 gb ram, 100-200 mpbs 20 TB network, almost 100 mbps unmetered (32 tb). 7763 single thread passmark is 2600, one core 2 threads about 5000 passmark.
The 2022 Hetzner $20 vds is basically a $100 bmds in the year 2012. This is good enough for many website hosting except video streaming. But compared to Hetzner's bmds, its vds offer is not great.
Both Netcup and php friends need to increase their network port to 10 gbps.
