HostZealot Netherlands Amsterdam AMD EPYC 9454 Dedicated Server Test and Review

We recently reviewed the HostZealot dedicated server in Amsterdam, which is equipped with a powerful AMD EPYC 9454 CPU. Here’s a quick look at the specs: it has 96 CPU cores, 128 GB of memory, 960 GB of ultra-fast NVMe SSD storage, 1 Gbps internet connection, and 1 IPv4 address.

Diving into its performance, we put it through a battery of tests. We utilized well-known tools like Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark for core speed and efficiency. To evaluate its global outreach, we measured response times and connection consistency with Global Node and Ping tests—key network performance indicators from various global points.

The Media Unlock Test was essential to determine the server’s ability to retrieve content across different regions—a critical factor for content delivery networks and service providers. Moreover, we integrated the CloudFlare Internet Test to assess the server’s interaction with one of the leading content delivery services. Finally, web performance metrics were established using PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix to understand how swiftly and smoothly web pages perform when hosted on this server.

Conclusion

Our Basic Bench tests found that the I/O speeds were remarkable and consistent, averaging 921.3 MB/s across three runs. Its performance across different locations worldwide, as tested by upload and download speeds, was strongest within Europe, as expected, given the server’s physical location in Amsterdam.

While the server demonstrated laudable speeds and low latency in close-range tests, results varied more widely at long distances with significant latency, particularly in Asian regions.

Yabs performance benchmarks reflected the server’s exceptional ability to handle mixed read/write operations, showcasing throughput at 1.87 GB/s for the largest block sizes tested. Geekbench 6 scores demonstrated high single and multi-core performance with respective scores of 2208 and 19101, underscoring the server’s capability to handle intensive computational tasks.

Meanwhile, the UnixBench score was 2077.6, signaling the server’s superior capacity in a multi-tasking environment compared to the baseline.

Our Media Unlock Test indicated that while the server had access to some regional content, it was restrictive for certain services. For instance, users could enjoy local content from services like Dazn and YouTube Premium in the Netherlands but were limited to ‘Originals Only’ on Netflix and faced restrictions on other popular platforms like Disney+ and HotStar.

In conclusion, the HostZealot server in Amsterdam leaves an impressive footprint in raw processing power, disk performance, and network capabilities with excellent local and regional connectivity.

Despite some limitations in global latency and content access, it stands out as a strong choice for tasks requiring heavy computational grunt and swift data access, as long as one is mindful of the potential for higher latency when serving content to users in far-flung regions.

This server is well-suited for businesses prioritizing robust performance and having a European user base, offering a solid foundation for many demanding applications.
