Test Performance Benchmark on Upcloud VPS

I have used some famous VPS providers such as Vultr, Linode, DigitalOcean, Google Cloud, Amazon Cloud for a long time but I’m quite impressed with UpCloud by the quality of service (High Uptime, easy to use control panel and good support).
First, to experience UpCloud, you must register under the link here to receive $ 25 (equivalent to a 5-month free use of 1GB of Ram)
Overview of the VPS market, the configuration of each VPS is the same, each provider has its own strengths. so I wrote this article to give you an overview of UpCloud.
In this article, I will try 2 packages of UpCloud with 1GB Ram and 4GB Ram configurations, hard drive using MaxIOPS technology, Singapore and US locations to easily visualize the speed and hardware configuration,
