Hivelocity United States Tampa Cloud Virtual Server Test and Review

Let’s take a closer look at the cloud virtual server provided by Hivelocity in Tampa, USA. This server is equipped with a powerful AMD EPYC-Rome Processor. It includes a setup with 2 CPU cores, 4 GB of memory, 80 GB of SSD storage, a high-speed 1 Gbps internet connection, and 10 TB of data transfer. Additionally, it comes with one IPv4 and one IPv6 address.

We put the server through its paces using a variety of tests to measure its performance and capabilities:

  • Basic Benchmarks: These tests quickly overview the server’s performance.
  • Yabs: Looks at the server’s disk speed, data transfer speed, and overall system operations.
  • Unix Benchmark: Delivers scores for the server’s processing and computing abilities.
  • Global Node Test: Examines the server’s network performance from different locations worldwide.
  • Global Ping Test: Assesses the response times from the server to ensure fast and reliable connections.
  • Media Unlock Test: Determines the server’s ability to access and stream regional content.
  • Cloudflare Internet Test: Evaluates the connection stability and quality.
  • PageSpeed Insights: Provides insights into the loading times and optimization of webpages.
  • GTmetrix Performance: Gives a comprehensive review of web performance, suggesting areas for improvement to ensure the best user experience.

Each of these tests helps us understand the strengths and opportunities for the Hivelocity server in delivering content efficiently and reliably.

Conclusion

In the initial Basic Bench tests, the server exhibited consistent I/O speed, averaging 797.3 MB/s. Results varied when assessing network performance through various locations worldwide. It displayed high upload and download speeds within the United States and performed well in some international locations like Paris and Amsterdam.

However, there was a noticeable drop in performance in mainland China, reflected in much lower speeds and significantly higher latencies. Performance across Mumbai, Singapore, and Tokyo offered a mixed bag with moderate upload speeds but more robust download speeds.

When looking at disk and overall server performance via the Yabs tests, we saw impressive I/O capabilities. The mixed read/write operations tallied up to 531.12 MB/s for 4k blocks and a sizable 1.09 GB/s for 1m blocks.

The Geekbench test complemented these findings with scores reflecting capable processing power: 1265 in single-core and 2258 in multi-core. UnixBench further confirmed the server’s robust CPU capacity, with particularly high Dhrystone 2 and Whetstone metrics, indicating superior computational and arithmetic calculations.

In conclusion, the Hivelocity server provides reliable and speedy performance for storage and networking across various benchmarks. Whether the user has regional or global needs, this server has demonstrated robust capabilities, except for some limitations in certain areas like China. Importantly, the server’s suitability for media streaming services suggests it could be well-suited for content delivery networks or other media-related online services.
