IntoVPS Romania Bucharest OpenStack Cloud VPS Hosting Test and Review

This time, we will check out the IntoVPS Cloud server in Bucharest, Romania. This server has a strong AMD EPYC Processor, and here’s what it comes with: it’s got 2 CPU cores, 4 GB of memory, 30 GB of fast SSD storage for your files, can handle internet speeds of up to 1 Gbps, allows 2 TB of data transfer, and gives you one IPv4 and one IPv6 address.

Let’s talk about the different tests we’ve run:

– The Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark check how well the server performs basic tasks and calculations.

– The Global Node Test: This one scans the network the server is on to see how it’s doing on a wider scale.

– The Global Ping Test: It measures how long it takes for information to get from one point to another, affecting how quickly websites respond.

– The Media Unlock Test: This checks whether people in different places can access regional content.

– The CloudFlare Internet Test: This looks at how reliably and swiftly the server connects to the internet and deals with data.

– PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance: These tools measure how fast a website loads and performs well.

Conclusion

Our initial Basic Bench tests display promising input/output operations, averaging 354.7 MB/s over three runs, showing the server’s rapid data handling capability. Our Yabs Performance Bench dives deeper, indicating that for small (4k) and large (1m) block sizes, the server can achieve read and write speeds in the range of 85.92 MB/s to 271.29 MB/s and 86.14 MB/s to 289.36 MB/s respectively, showcasing its agility in processing mixed workloads.

On the processing front, the Geekbench 6 Benchmark and UnixBench tests show substantial scores, especially when two CPUs are fired simultaneously, indicating strong computational performance.

The UnixBench scores cater to a range of operations, from computational tasks like the Dhrystone 2 and Whetstone tests, which score well above the baseline, indicating the server’s adeptness at handling mathematical computations and processing commands swiftly. Additionally, the server exhibits quick file-transferring capabilities and proficiency in executing scripts and creating processes.

Finally, our Media Unlock Test reveals that the server boasts accessibility for various regional content, with successful unlocks for services such as Dazn, Netflix, and Amazon Prime Video in Romania. However, access is restricted for other services like Hotstar, Disney+, and Spotify registration, likely due to geographical licensing restrictions.

In conclusion, our comprehensive test suite illustrates that the IntoVPS Cloud server is a strong contender in the hosting world, manifesting robust capabilities in data processing speeds and impressive handling of different workloads.

The server’s performance indicates that it could be a solid choice for businesses seeking a reliable hosting option in the region, with the incidental boon of access to a range of streaming services. It looks to cater particularly well to those prioritizing quick data access and processing needs, balanced with generous data transfer allowances.
