IntoVPS Romania Cluj-Napoca OpenStack Cloud VPS Hosting Test and Review

We recently tested the IntoVPS Romania Cluj-Napoca Cloud VPS Server. This server comes with an Intel Xeon Processor and is set up with 2 CPU cores, 4 GB of RAM, 30 GB of SSD storage, a fast 1 Gbps internet connection, 2 TB of data transfer, plus one IPv4 and one IPv6 address.

Our testing routine included a few different checks: We started with some basic tests to see how quick and powerful the server is, looked closely at how it connects to the rest of the internet, and checked how fast it responds to pings, which are like echoes in a cave but for the internet.

We also ran tests to ensure you can access local content—useful targeting a specific area. We also tested the quality of the server’s internet connection with Cloudflare. Lastly, we used PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix tools to determine how well websites would run on this server.

About IntoVPS

IntoVPS is a hosting provider based in Romania, established in June 2009. Hosterion SRL owns the company and offers reasonably-priced Virtual Private Server (VPS) solutions to business enterprises in Europe and the United States. The company was founded to offer powerful, secure, and reliable VPS solutions at pocket-friendly prices.

IntoVPS uses SSD-powered premium Intel Xeon servers in data centers connected to Tier 1 internet providers. Their full-SSD cloud network is powered by OpenStack, which provides many operations every second and records very low latencies. OpenStack, an open-source cloud orchestration project, was chosen because of its popularity, efficiency, and cost-reduction benefits.

IntoVPS allows customers to choose their preferred VPS locations from a list of five: London, Dallas, Amsterdam, Fremont, and Bucharest. IntoVPS guarantees an uptime of 99.9%, which is a tad low for VPS standards but still passable. However, tests have yielded zero downtime for the six months prior. All hosting packages are also deployed automatically, eliminating the long wait times you’ll often see with VPS providers.

IntoVPS hosting plans are reasonably priced, particularly for the quality of premium service they offer. This vendor has a pay-per-hour pricing scheme doesn’t require customers to enter into long-term contracts or full-month commitments. This approach allows users to create a VPS any time they want and delete it whenever they choose. You will only be charged for the specific duration you used the VPS.

Conclusion

The server’s performance was quantitatively analyzed across several benchmarks. In the Basic Benchmark, the I/O speed—which measures how fast the server can read and write data—averaged 698.3 MB/s after three runs. When pushed through the Yabs Performance Bench, which tests the server’s ability to handle reading and writing simultaneously, it showed its strength, resulting in an impressive 3.59 GB/s when dealing with large file operations.

In the Geekbench 6 Benchmark Test, our server performed decent single and multi-core processing, critical for tasks requiring one or multiple CPU threads, respectively. The UnixBench scores painted a comprehensive picture of the server’s capabilities, from computation (with the Dhrystone and Whetstone tests) to real-world operations like file copying and script execution, with the system index score leaping from 640.9 in single-task operations to 1143.8 in multitasking mode, suggesting the server scales well under load.

Our Media Unlock Test revealed that the server has reasonable access to various media services, unlocking regional content for platforms like Dazn, Netflix, and Amazon Prime Video in Romania. However, services like HotStar, Disney+, and Spotify Registration weren’t accessible, indicating some geographical limitations.

To sum up, the IntoVPS server demonstrated a strong performance profile for computational tasks and I/O operations, key indicators of a server’s ability to handle diverse web hosting requirements. It stands out as a solid option for hosting websites and services that demand speed and reliability, though some limitations in media service accessibility are to be noted.
