Exoscale Austria Vienna Standard Instance VPS Hosting Test and Review

We will test the Exoscale Austria Vienna Standard Instance VPS Server this time. The server is powered by an Intel Core Processor (Broadwell, no TSX). 2 Cores CPU/4 GB RAM/50 GB SSD Storage/1 Gbps Internet Port/Traffic is billed per GB with a free tier of up to 1.42 GB / hr granted per-Instance (equivalent to 1 TB / mo per-Instance). 1x IPv4 and 1x IPv6 Address.

Our analysis of various tests: the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark for essential metrics, the Global Node Test for extensive network assessment, and the Global Ping Test for latency measurement.

The Media Unlock Test is for regional accessibility, the CloudFlare Internet Test is for connection quality, and web performance evaluations are via PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance.

About Exoscale

Exoscale Compute Instances are part of Exoscale’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offerings. Exoscale is a privacy-minded public cloud provider that lets you start virtual machines or Kubernetes clusters in seconds. It’s designed to host anything from simple applications to complex architectures.

The Compute Instances are scalable, on-demand cloud servers that can be started in seconds. They integrate with your current on-premises or hybrid-cloud deployments using standard DevOps tooling like Terraform, Kubernetes, and Ansible.

Exoscale Compute Instances offer high-performance KVM-powered virtual machines for any workload. Select from pre-defined instance sizes to configure your cloud server’s CPU cores and memory. The sizes range from 1 core and 512MB to 24 cores and 225GB memory.

These instances support both Linux and Windows operating systems. You can select from Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, Atomic or Container Linux, Windows, or OpenBSD. All instances are powered by enterprise-grade local SSD RAID10 storage for high I/O performance and ultra-low latency.

Exoscale Compute Instances also offer features like anti-affinity groups for launching virtual machines on different physical hypervisors, ensuring high availability, virtual machine snapshots for backing up your data and configuration, and custom templates for quickly creating new instances customized to fit your needs.

Inbound traffic is free, and all traffic between your nodes is also free. Your load balancers also get 1 TB of outbound traffic per node in the cluster. Exoscale’s live migration feature ensures that the hypervisors can always be kept up-to-date, improving performance and security without requiring reboots of your VMs.
