iHostART Romania Orastie City Intel Xeon Processor KVM VPS Test and Review

We recently tested the iHostART Romania Orastie City virtual server with an Intel Xeon Gold 6138 CPU. This server boasts the following specs: a 4-core CPU, 8GB of RAM, 100GB of fast SSD storage, a super-fast 1 Gbps internet connection, and IPv4 addresses.

Our review covered a range of tests to check how the server performs. We ran simple speed benchmarks, network, and connection quality assessments, and tests to see how quickly webpages load. We also checked whether you can access media from different regions and how the server works with CloudFlare’s services.

About iHostART

iHostArt is a web hosting provider that offers various services, including Virtual Private Servers (VPS). The company, which was established in 2020, is based in Romania.

iHostArt’s VPS offerings are known for their affordability and flexibility. They provide a range of VPS plans to cater to different needs, from small personal projects to larger business operations. The VPS plans are designed to balance cost and performance, making them an attractive option for users on a budget.

One of the key features of iHostArt’s VPS service is the use of KVM virtualization. This technology allows for the creating of virtual machines that operate independently of each other, providing users with a high degree of control over their server environment. This can be particularly beneficial for users who require specific configurations or who wish to run multiple applications on a single server.

iHostArt’s VPS plans also come with a generous amount of storage space. The company uses HDD hard drives for their VPS, supplemented with SSD for caching. This combination allows for large storage capacities while still benefiting from the speed and performance advantages of SSD technology.

Another notable feature of iHostArt’s VPS service is its bandwidth offering. The company provides 1Gbps bandwidth, which can support high-traffic websites and applications. This is particularly beneficial for businesses that rely on their website for sales and customer engagement.

Conclusion

Our first set of tests, the Basic Bench, looked at how the server handles data: reading, writing, and transferring files. The results showed consistently high speeds for input and output operations (around 571.7 MB/s), with upload speeds peaking at 604.31 Mbps and downloads at 605.29 Mbps, depending on the location. The latency was reasonably low across the board, with the best ping coming from Paris at 36.65 ms.

We dove deeper with the Yabs Performance Bench, which simulates a mix of reading and writing to the disk to measure how quickly the server can handle data under more realistic scenarios. The server showed strength, with read and write speeds soaring up to 1.60 GB/s for larger files. The Geekbench 6 results reinforced this powerful performance with a respectable single-core score of 841 and a multi-core score of 2731.

The UnixBench tests presented the server’s raw computing power, focusing on CPU performance. It substantially outperformed the baseline figures, achieving a System Benchmarks Index Score of 742.3 for single-threaded tasks and a much higher 2287.6 when fully utilizing all cores. This suggests the server can handle a heavy load, maintaining strong performance even as demands increase.

In conclusion, the iHostART Romania Orastie server is robust, showcasing excellent read/write speeds, strong CPU performance, and reliable network capabilities with low latency across diverse geographic locations. It stands out for users who need power and consistency, making it a strong contender for hosting demanding applications. It’s also well-suited for those looking for a VPS that supports streaming services from Romania.
