Cloud Forest Romania Buzau Enterprise Intel Xeon Cloud VPS Test and Review

Thanks to the Cloud Forest team offering this opportunity, Our evaluation of the Romania Buzau Enterprise VPS, equipped with an Intel Xeon processor, covered a variety of key performance indicators. The hardware setup included a 4-core CPU, 8 GB of RAM, 50 GB SSD storage, a 1 Gbps internet connection, and a single IPv4 address.

Our review has several checks: we used basic benchmarks, Yabs, and the Unix Benchmark to measure core performance. We ran the Global Node Test to test the network and checked how quick the ping times were. We also examined whether the server could access content in different regions with the Media Unlock Test.

To check internet connection quality, we used the CloudFlare Internet Test. Lastly, we evaluated website loading speed using PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance.

About Cloud Forest

Cloud Forest Infrastructure S.R.L. is a private hosting and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provider that manages its edge data center in Buzău County, Romania. It offers various services, including Web Hosting Servers(From € 5 /month), Virtual Private Servers(From € 5 /month), and Gaming Servers(From € 5 / month).

Cloud Forest all servers are built on Intel® Xeon® Silver 4309Y processors with 8 cores and 16 threads. With a base clock speed of 2.8GHz per core, capable of reaching up to 3.60GHz through Intel SpeedStep® technology, it outperforms most processors in the Intel Xeon E5 range, often used in hosting service infrastructures.

Cloud Forest utilizes multiple memory modules in each server, with an individual storage capacity of 32GB, utilizing DDR4 RDIMM technology. This provides greater bandwidth and faster transfer speeds compared to DDR3. Additionally, the RAM module has a clock speed of 3200MHz, making it ideal for data-intensive processing tasks and advanced video gaming.

To ensure the safety of your data, Cloud Forest stores all data independently from servers on Dell PowerVault ME5 equipment, providing redundancy in the highly unlikely event of any server failure.
