Like WPMU DEV, SiteGround puts customer service at the forefront of their endeavours. The hosting also comes with many useful features including dedicated resources, staging environments, and expert migrations.
See how it compares with WPMU DEV below.
How the battle went down.
For these tests, we used two different (and free) performance testing tools:
A load testing service that allows you to stress test your web-apps and APIs with thousands of concurrent connections. Find out more
KeyCDN's performance testing tool
This tool measures the performance of any URL from 10 different locations around the world. We used this to test TTFB. Find out more
WPMU DEV has it well over SiteGround when it comes to max parallel clients - which measures the number of users the server can handle at one time before maxing out.

DEV is also victorious in both TTFB categories.
