About Hetzner

Hetzner Cloud is a cloud hosting solution that offers robust performance and affordable pricing. It provides various cloud server options, allowing users to choose the one that best suits their needs.

The cloud servers are categorized into three main types: Shared vCPU (x86), Shared vCPU (Arm64), and Dedicated vCPU. The Shared vCPU (x86) servers offer the best price-performance ratio and are suitable for small and medium-traffic websites and applications. The Shared vCPU (Arm64) servers provide an alternative to x86-based cloud servers, offering powerful and sustainable Arm64 architecture at a stunning price.

The Dedicated vCPU servers are best for business-critical applications and workloads with sustained high CPU and network use. They offer low latency and predictable performance, making them ideal for high-traffic websites and applications, gaming servers, machine learning, and big data processing.

Hetzner Cloud also offers flexible and scalable Volumes, allowing users to add SSD-based storage to each cloud server as needed. This feature allows users to scale their storage needs according to their requirements. Hetzner Cloud also supports multiple architectures, including the cheaper CAX ARM instances. This multi-architecture support allows users to choose any Hetzner cloud instances that best fit their needs.

Conclusion

The server underwent a comprehensive evaluation beginning with standard performance benchmarks. The I/O speed tests showed significant strengths in handling data, consistently performing above 1 GB/s in repeated trials, peaking at 1.3 GB/s. These figures represent the server’s capability to transfer and manage data efficiently—an essential feature for high-traffic web applications.

Network performance was also tested, revealing speedy upload and download capabilities, particularly impressive in the Dallas and Amsterdam nodes, which exhibited downloads in the multi-gigabit range. Latencies varied across geographies; as expected, proximity to network nodes reduced latency, which is crucial for user experience in real-time applications.

Disk performance was evaluated using Yabs, presenting outstanding read and write speeds that reached beyond 4 GB/s in mixed operations, confirming the server’s ability to handle heavy read-write operations without bottlenecks. These metrics were complemented by the UnixBench scores, which painted a picture of robust CPU performance and a reliable system throughput.

The server was also tested for its ability to access geo-restricted media content, passing most checks with flying colors. It could access various streaming services from different regions, including Dazn, Netflix, and Amazon Prime Video, pointing to a server suitable for diverse global applications.

In conclusion, the Hetzner dedicated server demonstrates a strong performance profile across critical areas such as data handling, network throughput, and disk operations. With excellent connectivity and satisfactory access to multimedia resources, this server is a robust choice for businesses looking to manage high-demand applications with users spread globally. Whether you’re looking to host complex web applications, streaming services, or a portfolio of business sites, this server appears to have the muscle to back up its specifications with real-world performance.
