cloudscale.ch Switzerland Lupfig Dedicated Cores Swiss Cloud Server Test and Review

We recently checked out the cloudscale.ch Swiss server in Lupfig, which focuses on offering dedicated power for your needs. This server is equipped with an advanced AMD processor, and here’s what’s under the hood: it has 2 CPU cores, 4 GB of memory, 50 GB of fast SSD storage, and a speedy 10 Gb/s internet connection. Plus, it comes with one IPv4 and one IPv6 address.

To measure the core performance stats, these tests started with basic benchmarks, including Yabs and Unix Benchmark. Then, to gauge the server’s network capabilities, we used the Global Node Test for a deep dive into the network and the Global Ping Test to see how fast it responds.

We ran the Media Unlock Test to check if the server can access content worldwide. We tested internet connection quality with the CloudFlare Internet Test, and to see how well websites would run, we used PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance tests.
