ShiftHosting United States Dallas Budget Cloud Server Test and Review

We recently reviewed the ShiftHosting budget cloud server in Dallas, USA. This server uses a powerful AMD EPYC 7742 64-Core Processor with these specs: 16-core CPU, 32GB of RAM, 320GB SSD for storage, a fast 1Gbps internet connection, 16TB of data transfer, and both IPv4 and IPv6 address.

In our evaluation, we conducted a series of tests. We started with basic performance checks (Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark), which gave us a good overview of the server’s capabilities. We then looked at the server’s network performance worldwide (Global Node Test) and checked how quickly it responds to pings (Global Ping Test), which is important for a snappy user experience.

Our team also examined if the server can stream media from various regions (Media Unlock Test), how well it connects through CloudFlare’s network (CloudFlare Internet Test), and how fast it loads webpages (using tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance).

Conclusion

Starting with the basics, our I/O speed tests yielded impressive results, with an average speed of 785 MB/s after three runs. A deeper dive into network performance via speed tests across various global nodes revealed inconsistencies. Local speeds in Dallas shone at over 9,000 Mbps for uploads and downloads, with latency under 1 ms. However, this performance dropped significantly in more distant locations like Chongqing and Hong Kong, which is not unusual due to the increased distance from the server.

The YABS performance bench balanced read and write operations, with mixed R/W speeds peaking at 1.45 GB/s for 64k block sizes, indicating swift and reliable disk performance — critical for data-heavy operations. To round it out, UnixBench tests demonstrated the server’s CPU might, flexing a multi-core score that soared well above 9,000, suggesting that the server is more than capable of handling demanding tasks and high levels of concurrent processing.

In conclusion, Shift Hosting’s budget cloud server exhibits exceptional performance, particularly in local nodes. It’s an excellent choice for CPU-intensive tasks thanks to its robust processing capabilities. Its disk speeds ensure efficient data handling, and while performance inevitably varies with distance, overall, it stands as a solid choice for a budget server with the resources to support a wide range of hosting needs capably.
