New Dr.Server Benchmark

Mr. Kolakovic was nice enough to let me beta test their new Xen PV based service from their “BlazingFast” product line. So here is my somewhat truncated test, I have only done the most pertinent tests that I can think of.
For real evaluation I’m running a Seafile instance on it, synchronized between three boxes.

First, here’s a quick look:

That’s it for now. I will continue evaluating the service by using Seafile ( If somebody has any ideas on what other benchmarks to run, please let me know in a comment.
If you’re interested in Dr.Server and want to buy their service I can wholeheartedly recommend them — because apart from this beta server I do have other services with them and they’ve been awesome in every respect so far!
