Our comments

We found CloudVPS's VPS was capable enough to handle 500 concurrent users trying to browse NopCommerce ecommerce store.They all received the response in just 0.398 second time.

By far, our tests reveal that the Windows VPS offered by Cloud VPS have proved to be one of the best VPS mainly because of (i) virtualization technology (Microsoft HyperV); and (ii) Solid State Drive attached to high-performance SANs connected to the server nodes by 8 Gigabit connections; and (iii) HyperVCSV Block Cache feature(This feature provides caching layer for storing hard disk requests and speed up the read-write requests).

This research is conducted to test CloudVPS Windows VPS's capacity to handle a stress of 500 simultenous connections. We've used loadimpact.com online tool to perform stress testing. In the time span of 30 minutes, 500 simultenous connections were created to their virtual server. In the very first 5 minutes, 80 users were simultenously online. Then every 5 minutes additional 80 connections were created. So, in the first 10 minutes, there was a stress of 160 active connections. At the end of 30 minutes, the stress testing was running with the 500 active connections.

We waited around 48 hours to get the first response from their support team.Their support team said that they are only responsible for keeping the VPS online.They don't offer any kind of support for the issues faced on the VPS.As a result, our windows issue remain unresolved. Also, their Windows knowledgebase requires content rich windows vps articles.

In this research, we've evaluted their support operations. This includes evaluation of their support channels (live chat, phone, support tickets), how fast they responded to our chat requests, how quickly they resolved our support tickets, what was their technical expertise for Windows VPS related issues and how insightful was their knowledgebase. To check the technical skills of their support representative, we threw a windows vps related issue and tried to figure out the depth of their skill.

CloudVPS offers both paid (i) file level paid backup; and (ii) virtual disk level backup. Any offering of complementary backup can add up to value addition.

In this research, we tested their backup facility and restoration process for Windows VPS. Some of these companies offer file level backup (you can backup and restore individual files) and some of them offer virtual disk level backup (only backup of an entire vps and restoration of the same, no file level backup or restoration is offered). We also tested their backup frequency and how fast they process your restoration request.

Rather than obtaining data directly from respective website and make them available to our directory users, we've choosen to undertake an extensive research to reach to a scientific conclusion. For this, we leased a Windows VPS server from Router Hosting and monitored it to evaluate their services comprehensively for about a month. During our test, we actually tested their uptime, backup procedures, support skills, load capacity and all other important features.

To test Router Hosting's capability of handling Windows VPS, we conducted an extensive research of their Windows VPS plans. We hosted an application on Router Hosting Windows VPS's server, tested their load bearing capacity, expertise of their technical team to manage Windows VPS related issues, backup facility, Uptime of their Windows VPS and pre-installed softwares. Please see our research results of their Windows VPS.

It took 16 seconds to respond to each request when there were 500 concurrent users
The testing server was located in London, GB
Router Hosting Windows VPS's server was located in Roubaix, france.

Our comments

While we audited, we found the Windows VPS was fairly stable to handle 300 concurrent users of NopCommerce Ecommerce Store with a response time being one second. However, as the number of concurrent users were increased by another 200, it resulted in a higher response time of 16 seconds for each user.

This research is conducted to test Router Hosting Windows VPS's capacity to handle a stress of 500 simultenous connections. We've used loadimpact.com online tool to perform stress testing. In the time span of 30 minutes, 500 simultenous connections were created to their virtual server. In the very first 5 minutes, 80 users were simultenously online. Then every 5 minutes additional 80 connections were created. So, in the first 10 minutes, there was a stress of 160 active connections. At the end of 30 minutes, the stress testing was running with the 500 active connections.

They don't offer any backup service with this plan.Customers are solely responsible for maintaining backup at their local computers.

In this research, we tested their backup facility and restoration process for Windows VPS. Some of these companies offer file level backup (you can backup and restore individual files) and some of them offer virtual disk level backup (only backup of an entire vps and restoration of the same, no file level backup or restoration is offered). We also tested their backup frequency and how fast they process your restoration request.

Zion VPS Windows VPS's server was located in Florida, US.

Our comments

During the test, we found the Windows VPS was fairly stable to handle 250 concurrent users of NopCommerce Ecommerce Store with a response time being one second. However, as the number of concurrent users were increased by another 250, it resulted in a higher response time of 33.29 seconds for each user.

This research is conducted to test Zion VPS Windows VPS's capacity to handle a stress of 500 simultenous connections. We've used loadimpact.com online tool to perform stress testing. In the time span of 30 minutes, 500 simultenous connections were created to their virtual server. In the very first 5 minutes, 80 users were simultenously online. Then every 5 minutes additional 80 connections were created. So, in the first 10 minutes, there was a stress of 160 active connections. At the end of 30 minutes, the stress testing was running with the 500 active connections.
