ShiftHosting USA Atlanta High-Performance Dedicated Server Test and Review

Thanks to the support team, especially Aaron, Samuel, and Chay, for giving us this chance. They were friendly and professional. We got to try out Shift Hosting USA‘s Atlanta high-speed dedicated server. It’s got a powerful AMD Ryzen 9 5900X processor with 12 cores, 128 GB of memory, 4 TB of super-fast NVMe SSD storage, a 1 Gbps connection, 100 TB of data transfer, and an IPv4 address.

For testing, we ran a bunch of checks: a basic Benchmark and Yabs, a Unix Benchmark for key numbers, a Global Node Test to see how the network does overall, and a Global Ping Test to check response times. We also did the Media Unlock Test to ensure content is reachable from different regions, a CloudFlare test for connection quality and used PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix to see how fast websites load.

Conclusion

We performed a series of tests to gauge the server’s prowess. The Basic Benchmark focused on input/output (I/O) operations, demonstrating speeds ranging from 770 MB/s to 963 MB/s across multiple runs, averaging 854 MB/s. Network performance was also impressive, with upload and download speeds consistently near the 1 Gbps mark. Notably, network latencies varied depending on location, with domestic sites showing much lower latency than international ones.

In-depth disk performance measured by Yabs reflected strong read and write speeds, excelling at mixed operations with figures like 1.14 GB/s and 2.46 GB/s for smaller blocks and 2.99 GB/s and 2.22 GB/s for larger data blocks. These metrics underscore the server’s capacity to handle high-intensity workloads efficiently. System performance maintained high standards, with Geekbench and UnixBench revealing high scores, especially in CPU-bound tasks, where the multicore configuration of the server excelled.

In conclusion, Shift Hosting USA’s Atlanta server demonstrated an excellent balance of fast storage, robust networking, and potent processing strength. Its capacity to perform consistently across various tests assures potential users of its reliability for demanding applications.
