Network performance results were mostly consistent, showing upload speeds just above 100 Mbps and download speeds closely matching, with the lowest latency being nearly non-existent at 0.70 ms and the highest latency observed in Mumbai at 266.76 ms.

The Yabs performance bench showcased the server’s mixed read/write abilities, with impressive disk speeds up to 1.32 GB/s for reading and 1.41 GB/s for writing when using large data blocks. The Geekbench 6 results indicated a reasonable single-core score of 594 and a multi-core score of 1051, suggesting decent processing capabilities.

The UnixBench scores, which evaluate CPU performance among other metrics, have provided us with two figures. When running a single test at a time, the results were modest, but with two tests running in parallel, the scores almost doubled, signifying strong multi-tasking performance. The index scores of 507.2 in single tests and 951.6 in parallel testing suggest the server can handle multiple operations efficiently.

In conclusion, the LightNode Mexico City VPS offers a reliable and cost-effective hosting option for various tasks.
