Scaleway C2L server benchmark

Scaleway provides bare metal servers, both as dedicated and scalable cloud solutions. I took a C2L server from them which runs on a C2750 Intel Atom with 8 CPU cores at 2.40 GHz and has 32GB RAM. The server comes bundled with two separate hard drives. A networked 50GB SSD and a native 250GB SSD.

The network speed and disk I/O rates are pretty good for the price so I’d say it’s totally worth the 23.99€ monthly price (VAT excluded) which is justified mostly by the low profile CPU.
