Comparing Ping Times: Vultr vs DigitalOcean

      No Comments on Comparing Ping Times: Vultr vs DigitalOcean

I’ve been testing deployment of a Xojo Web Application to two inexpensive (I won’t use the word ‘cheap’ because that might give the wrong impression. They both work very well.) hosted server options: Vultr.com and DigitalOcean.com.

I’ve been using DigitalOcean for a while to run some tests but I was curious to test Vultr as they have a server host in Atlanta, GA, USA which is close to where I live and work. The closest DigitalOcean location is in New York.

So, without further ado, here is the results of ping times:

Host: min avg max mdev
Vultr: 10.8 12.0 14.7 1.2 ms
DigitalOcean: 39.8 41.8 46.3 2.4 ms

That’s it for now. I may publish more extensive tests if I feel it necessary to perform them.
