HostHatch (Stockholm)

This is my benchmark of HostHatch — their Swedish location (Stockholm) is through Portlane Networks AB and is very suitable for somebody like me, who’s located in Scandinavia!

On this VPS I run a variety of applications. I switch from Fluxbox, Openbox, Gnome and KDE. I cannot ever decide:

VM01 VM01

As you can tell, it runs quite the load (Skype, Firefox, IRC) + various background applications, even a Syncthing instance. Performance has been superb so far!
