SKB Enterprise Netherlands Amsterdam AMD Ryzen Dedicated Server Test and Review

We’ve comprehensively reviewed the SKB Enterprise‘s dedicated server in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. This powerful server has an AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-core processor supplemented by 32 GB of RAM. It boasts 1 TB of fast NVMe SSD storage, up to 50 TB of data transfer, a 1 Gbps internet connection, and an IPv4 address.

We put the server through several tests. We started with basic performance checks and used tools like Yabs and Unix Benchmark. For network performance, we tested how fast it connects to different locations using the Global Node Test and checked for any delay in response with the Global Ping Test.

Our team also checked if it could access media content from various regions, assessed its connection quality with the CloudFlare Internet Test, and used PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix to see how fast it could load web pages.

Conclusion

In our initial tests to gauge the server’s input/output operations (I/O), it consistently performed around the 870 MB/s mark for read and write operations, indicating high-speed data handling capabilities. Network performance tests across various global nodes revealed high upload and download speeds, with impressively low latency in most cases—particularly within Europe and North America. This paints the server as a strong candidate for easily handling international traffic.

More technical benchmarks dug into the disk and CPU performance. The Yabs Performance Bench showed mixed read/write speeds, peering at 1.85 GB/s for larger blocks, which suggests the server can handle heavy workloads efficiently. The Geekbench 6 scores were equally impressive, indicating a strong overall performance from the CPU. The UnixBench tests solidified the server’s capabilities, with multiple tests far exceeding the baseline indices and showing that the server could handle many tasks simultaneously without a hiccup.

In conclusion, our suite of tests has demonstrated that SKB Enterprise’s Amsterdam server is a high-performing machine that excels in data processing and network connectivity. Its remarkable I/O and CPU performance and low-latency international connectivity make it an excellent option for businesses that demand fast and reliable hosting solutions for a global audience. Its potential for scalability and handling complex tasks positions it well for various intensive web applications and services.
