Scaleblade UK London Unmetered Bandwidth Cloud Compute Instance Test and Review

We recently reviewed Scaleblade‘s cloud server in London, UK, which offers unlimited bandwidth. This server runs on a standard KVM processor and has the following setup: a dual-core CPU, 4 GB of RAM, 60 GB SSD storage, 2.5 Gbps internet connection. It also includes one IPv4 and IPv6 address.

For our evaluation, we ran a series of tests. We started with basic performance checks, including Bench.sh, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark. Then, we checked how well the server connects with the rest of the world using a global network test and measured how long it takes to respond to commands with a ping test.

We also examined whether it could stream content from various regions and tested its connection quality to CloudFlare. Lastly, we used tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix to see how quickly web pages load from this server.

Conclusion

The server underwent a set of benchmarks to measure its efficiency. Basic Bench tests showed consistent input/output (I/O) speeds averaging around 370 MB/s, a strong indicator of the server’s ability to handle data. When testing upload and download speeds across various global locations, this server maintained impressive speeds, generally in the range of hundreds of Mbps, even reaching as high as 2.5 Gbps locally within the UK.

Further performance insights came from the Yabs test, demonstrating the server’s capability to read and write data rapidly, exceeding 1 GB/s in mixed operations. Similarly, the UnixBench scores depicted a robust CPU performance, showcasing the server’s prowess with tasks involving computational muscle and multitasking. Finally, the Media Unlock Test revealed that the server could access a range of region-locked content, proving its usefulness for various multimedia applications. However, it wasn’t capable of unblocking all regional services.

In summary, this Scaleblade server in London shows excellent data transfer capability, strong performance across both local and international locations, and solid CPU processing ability, making it a reliable choice for a potent and versatile hosting solution. The only noteworthy limitation lies in its variable capacity for media content unlocking, which could affect users requiring access to specific regional services.
