I signed up for digitalocean and created an ubuntu instance, and like I do with all webhosting I try out, I ran a few sysbenches to get an idea of how powerful their machines are (which is a trick I learned from a previous conversation here).
To my surprise, the memory test came back with 0 ops/sec and 0 MB/sec and no errors. Any ideas why this would be? They claim to be KVM virtualized and I've never seen this with other KVM providers.
