Serversaurus versus Digital Ocean

Last modified date

Using third party monitoring tools, I wanted to see how Serversaurus’ cheapest Melbourne based shared hosting option stacked up against a similarly priced Digital Ocean droplet (virtual machine). The following graphs are over a six month period:

Digital Ocean Droplet

Period: 6 months
Total downtime: 3 hours 30 minutes over 16 outages
Uptime: 99.92%

Serversaurus Personal Hosting

Period: 6 months
Total downtime: 25 minutes over 3 outages
Uptime: 99.99%

You’ll also see within the average response time, Serversaurus is on average ~2.5x faster, with a smoother and more reliable response graph, which is surprising, since the monitoring agents are offshore and closer to the Digital Ocean droplet than our Serversaurus infrastructure in Melbourne.
