RamNode United States New York Dedicated CPU VDS Server Hosting Test and Review
Today, we’re reviewing RamNode‘s dedicated CPU virtual server in New York, United States. Running on an Intel Core Processor (an older Haswell model without TSX or IBRS features), this server offers 2 CPU cores, 8 GB of memory, 200 GB of SSD space, a lightning-fast 1 Gbps internet connection, and a generous 10 TB monthly data transfer limit. It also includes one IPv4 and one IPv6 address.

Our exploration includes a variety of checks: we’re carrying out Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark tests to look at fundamental performance aspects. We’re also running a Global Node Test to thoroughly examine the network connections and a Global Ping Test to measure delay times between data sends and receives.

We’re performing a Media Unlock Test to find out if certain media content is available in different regions and a CloudFlare Internet Test to gauge the quality of the Internet connection. Finally, we’re using PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance tools to see how well your web pages would perform.

About RamNode

RamNode Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS) is a hosting solution that offers users an isolated virtual server. Unlike shared hosting, which hosts multiple websites on a single physical server, VDS provides users with a virtual server that can be configured and managed according to their needs.

How VDS Works VDS works through the process of virtualization. A single physical server is partitioned into multiple virtual machines, each with its operating system, resources, and configurations. These virtual machines operate independently of each other, offering complete control to the user. You can install your operating system, software, and applications as a VDS user. You can also configure the server resources like CPU, RAM, and storage according to your needs.

VDS vs. VPS Comparing VDS and VPS (Virtual Private Server), both have many overlapping aspects. However, the key difference lies in the allocation of resources. With a VDS, you receive a fixed set of resources like CPU, RAM, and disk storage. This server operates independently, ensuring that your performance remains unaffected by the actions of other users. Moreover, the VDS provides dedicated CPU cores, making it an ideal solution for users requiring more than a typical VPS offers.

RamNode’s Offerings RamNode offers Virtual Dedicated Server Hosting with advanced technology, dedicated resources, and flexible payment options. They provide more power and dedicated resources at a cloud hosting price when you need more processing power. Their expert team is available 24/7 for support. They offer flexible billing options across all VDS Hosting plans and instant deployment on lightning-fast hardware with a dependable Tier-1 network.

Conclusion

We started the testing by running the Basic Benchmark. Our I/O speed tests averaged an impressive 701 MB/sec. The server also demonstrated strong upload and download speeds across different locations, with the highest performing location being Montreal, Canada, showing upload and download speeds over 900Mbps. The latency was generally lower in North America and Europe than in Asia.

Our next step was the Yabs Performance Benchmark. It performed well in mixed read/write tests, especially at larger block sizes. The 512k and 1m block tests showed speeds reaching 802.27 MB/s and 307.11 MB/s respectively. We also ran a Geekbench 6 benchmark test. It finished in just over 16 minutes and delivered scores of 1276 single-core and 2255 Multi-core, indicating balanced performance.

In the UnixBench test, the server scored impressively on most measures. In both one and two parallel copies of tests, it far exceeded the baseline values, with especially high scores in “Dhrystone 2 using register variables,” indicating efficient CPU performance and excellent “File Copy” scores showing strong disk reading and writing capabilities. These results suggest that the server delivers strong performance across various operations.

Lastly, the Media Unlock Test showed that the server can access international media content. Accessible platforms include Dazn, YouTube Premium, Amazon Prime Video, and TVBAnywhere+. However, certain services like Hotstar, Disney+, and Viu.com were inaccessible with this server.

In conclusion, RamNode’s New York-based dedicated CPU server demonstrates robust performance with high-speed internet connectivity, impressive I/O, and strong CPU capabilities. This server could be a reliable choice if you are after hosting latency-sensitive applications or need to handle heavy data workloads. Remember that its media access capabilities are somewhat mixed; your results may vary depending on the specific platforms you want to access.
