Spartan Host United States Seattle DDoS Protected SSD Premium KVM VPS Test and Review

We recently reviewed the Spartan Host‘s VPS server in Seattle, U.S., with DDoS protection and a solid-state drive. This server runs on a powerful AMD Ryzen 9 5950X with 16 cores, and our specific setup included 2 CPU cores, 2 GB of RAM, 50 GB of SSD storage, a fast 10 Gbps internet connection, and a generous 3 TB of data transfer allowance. It also comes with one IPv4 and one IPv6 address.

Our tests used standard benchmarks and tools to examine server performance, network speed, and response times. We checked how fast and stable the server was, assessed the network through comprehensive worldwide tests, and measured how quickly the server responded to requests from different locations.

Additionally, we tested whether the server could access media content from various regions, evaluated its connection quality through CloudFlare, and used PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix to see how well it handled web performance tasks.

Conclusion

In our Basic Benchmark, we measured impressive I/O speeds, with an average read/write performance of approximately 1809.1 MB/s. Network tests showed high upload and download speeds, notably achieving 6671.77 Mbps upload and 6098.49 Mbps download on Speedtest.net with just 4.06 ms of latency. A wide variance in performance across global locations indicated comprehensive network reach but varied ping responses, especially from more distant locations like Mumbai and Singapore.

Our more in-depth Yabs test showcased a balanced mixed read/write speed, peaking at 3.73 GB/s for larger block sizes, indicative of a responsive and powerful drive performance. Geekbench and UnixBench benchmarks provided scores that reflected a server capable of handling multiple tasks efficiently, confirming the server’s computational prowess.

The server’s capability to bypass regional restrictions was mixed, with access to some services like Dazn and Amazon Prime Video restricted to others like Disney+ and HotStar. Connection quality tests showed optimal routing with local CDNs and the ability to maintain U.S.-based services like Netflix and Amazon.

In conclusion, Spartan Host’s Seattle VPS is a high-performance and reliable option for those needing strong computational and storage capabilities with a significant networking reach. Although there is some variation in global accessibility and certain services remain region-locked, the overall network quality and server response are noteworthy, making it a suitable choice for various online applications.
