Cherry Servers Singapore Shared Resources Virtual Machine VPS Hosting Test and Review

In this review, we’ll evaluate the performance of the Cherry Servers‘ Shared Resources Virtual Machine (VPS) Server in Singapore. This server is underpinned by an AMD EPYC-Milan Processor and is equipped with a 2-core CPU, 2 GB RAM, 40 GB SSD storage, and a 1 Gbps internet port. It offers 1 TB of traffic and one IPv4 address.

Our various tests aimed at key metrics:

– The Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark will evaluate critical performance markers.
– The Global Node Test will provide a comprehensive network assessment by assessing data transfer speeds across geographical areas.
– The Global Ping Test will measure latency, giving us an understanding of the server’s response time.

Additionally, we will use the Cloudflare Internet Test to gauge internet connection quality, evaluating how fast and reliable the server’s connectivity is.

Finally, we also employ web performance evaluations via Google’s PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance, which measure load times and performance of websites hosted on the server.

Conclusion

First, we examined its baseline performance using the basic bench test, which checks the speed of I/O (input/output). The server performed consistently across three runs with an average I/O speed of approximately 203.7 MB/s, indicating that reading and writing digital information is efficient and reliable.

We then moved on to the Yabs Performance Bench, which tests mixed read/write speeds at different block sizes. At lower block sizes (4k and 64k), the server posted read and write speeds of around 6.02 MB/s and 96.67 MB/s, respectively, which are quite impressive.

As the block size increased (512k and 1m), performance improved significantly, with maximum read/write speeds exceeding 200 MB/s. These results underscore the server’s strong performance at handling small and large data transactions.

The UnixBench score, a popular test to check CPU performance, revealed an Index Score of 706.8 for a single test copy and a more impressive score of 1090.4 for two parallel test operations. These results show the server’s excellent capability of handling multiple simultaneous tasks.

Based on the Geekbench test, the server displayed commendable performance in single-core (913 points) and multi-core (1688 points) tasks, further reinforcing its ability to deliver on tasks requiring focused power or parallel processing.

In conclusion, testing the Cherry Servers’ Shared Resources Virtual Machine (VPS) Server in Singapore demonstrates superb performance in various key areas, including read/write speeds, CPU performance, and media accessibility, exhibiting its robust nature and diverse applicability.

Although there are some restrictions with specific content providers, it still is a potent option for users considering a VPS. The impressive scores indicate that users can expect reliable, efficient, and extensive service.
