ServerPoint United States Las Vegas ColossusCloud General Purpose VPS Test and Review

Let’s test the performance of a general-purpose VPS Server provided by ServerPoint in Las Vegas, United States. This server has a high-performing Intel Xeon processor (E5-2699A v4 at 2.40GHz) to ensure smooth operation. The server configuration we’re testing includes 4 Cores CPU/4 GB RAM/80 GB SSD Storage/1 Gbps Internet Port/4 TB Traffic/1x IPv4 Address.

Our review includes a range of tests to measure various aspects of the server’s performance:

  • Basic Benchmark tests to provide a general overview of server capabilities
  • Yabs and Unix Benchmark to evaluate essential performance metrics
  • Global Node Test to check the server’s network reach and reliability
  • Global Ping Test to assess the responsiveness of the server (latency)
  • Media Unlock Test to determine access to regional content
  • CloudFlare Internet Test for assessing the overall connection quality
  • PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix for analyzing web page loading times and performance

By conducting these tests, we aim to give a comprehensive view of how this server performs across different scenarios and workloads.

Conclusion

In our testing, the server’s disk I/O performance remained consistent, averaging 373.7 MB/s across three runs, providing a reliable measure of its data handling capabilities. Network performance varied depending on the location, with upload speeds still impressive even at distant nodes like Tokyo and Singapore. However, some locations in China reported significantly lower performance due to possible regional restrictions or network issues.

Our benchmarks painted a picture of a highly capable machine. The Yabs performance test disclosed a balanced read and write speed, particularly excelling in mixed R/W with larger block sizes. The Geekbench 6 results scored 806 and 2442 points for single-core and multi-core tests, respectively, indicating strong CPU performance. With UnixBench scores that were exceptionally high when running parallel tests, the server’s capability to handle simultaneous processing was clear, making it suitable for high-load scenarios.

In conclusion, the tested VPS server demonstrates robust performance, particularly in processing power and network capabilities. With its strong multi-core CPU performance and substantial network speed, this server is a solid choice for businesses and individuals looking for a reliable virtual private server.

The results indicate that clients can expect top-tier service for various applications, including web hosting, streaming, or complex applications. The server’s ability to bypass regional restrictions on various media services further underscores its versatility and user appeal.
