Gcore India Mumbai Intel Xeon Unlimited Traffic Standard Cloud VPS Test and Review

This time, we will test the Gcore India Mumbai Unlimited Traffic Standard Cloud VPS Server. The server is powered by an Intel Xeon Processor (Icelake), with the following configuration: 2 Cores CPU/4 GB RAM/50 GB SSD Storage/1 Gbps Internet Port/1x IPv4 Address.

Our analysis of various tests: the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark for essential metrics, the Global Node Test for extensive network assessment, and the Global Ping Test for latency measurement.

The Media Unlock Test is for media accessibility, the CloudFlare Internet Test is for connection quality, and web performance evaluations are via PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance.

About Gcore

Gcore Virtual Servers are a powerful and versatile solution for various online needs. They offer a democratic version of a dedicated server, providing users complete freedom through SSH access. This allows users to install necessary software and run any number of sites.

The virtual servers can operate on various operating systems, including Debian, CentOS, Ubuntu, FreeBSD, Windows Server, and Solaris. This flexibility makes them suitable for a wide range of tasks.

Regarding basic performance metrics, the I/O speed tests showed results hovering around 200 MB/s, which sits right between poor and good performance. The upload and download speeds were significantly impressive, especially within the Mumbai region, where the server reached speeds of 6923.64 Mbps for uploads and 6583.29 Mbps for downloads, indicating excellent network capabilities.

The Yabs performance bench revealed a mixed bag in disk performance, with read and write speeds showing good performance for larger block sizes. However, when inspecting the performance with smaller block sizes, speeds were much less impressive. The Geekbench 6 Benchmark Test yielded a single-core score of 1310 and a multi-core score of 2358, indicating good CPU performance, slightly above standard expectations.

The UnixBench test results showcased exemplary CPU performance, with the system’s overall index score in a single-copy test at 1081.3 and a staggering 1945.1 in a multicopy test. These scores reflect extremely high performance, suggesting that the server can handle a significant workload efficiently.

In conclusion, the Gcore India Mumbai Unlimited Traffic Standard Cloud VPS Server demonstrates robust capabilities, particularly in network performance.
