Conclusion

Starting with basic performance tests, the server showed excellent I/O speeds, averaging 608.7 MB/s across three runs, which is well above the good performance marker. The global node tests revealed consistent upload and download speeds of around 100 Mbps in various locations worldwide. However, Hong Kong and Singapore speeds dropped significantly, likely due to regional network constraints.

The more intensive Yabs Performance Bench pointed out even more strengths, especially in mixed read/write operations, reaching up to 1.17 GB/s for smaller operations and excellent peaks of about 3.02 GB/s for larger blocks. The Geekbench 6 results were modest, with a single-core score of 629 and a multi-core score of 1132, indicating solid but not flagship-level processing power.

UnixBench results showed outstanding multi-threading capabilities and consistency in CPU performance, suggesting that the server is more than capable of managing multiple tasks efficiently. The server’s ability to quickly handle a diverse range of scripts and data transmissions demonstrates its robustness and adaptability for various computing needs.

In conclusion, the LightNode Iraq Baghdad VPS excels in data transfer rates and storage operations, making it a strong candidate for data-intensive applications and multi-tasking environments. Although its central processing performance isn’t top-tier, it offers a very competent package for businesses looking for reliable and efficient server solutions.
