Retslav Netherlands Amsterdam Unmetered Bandwidth VPS Test and Review

We recently checked out the Retslav Netherlands Amsterdam VPS with all-you-can-use data. It has a speedy Intel Core Processor with power: 4 CPUs, 8 GB of memory, 128 GB fast SSD storage, and a 1 Gbps net connection. It’s also secure, with heavy-duty DDoS protection and an IPv4 address.

To see how it performs, we ran a bunch of simple tests. We measured basic performance, checked out the network by seeing how it connects worldwide, and tested how quickly it responds. We also looked at whether it can stream media from different regions, the quality of its connection to Cloudflare, and how fast websites run with tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix.

Conclusion

Performance testing started with Basic Bench, examining the Input/Output (I/O) and network speeds. The I/O speeds varied across three runs, averaging out to 87.2 MB/s. Network speed tests showed impressive upload and download speeds across various cities, with low latency in European locations and higher latency in Asian cities.

The Yabs Performance Bench dug into mixed read/write operations, showing consistent transfer speeds across different block sizes, while Geekbench revealed solid single and multi-core performance. Additionally, UnixBench scores, which indicate CPU capabilities, gave us high scores when running a single instance and when all cores were engaged.

To sum it up, the VPS from Retslav showed it’s a strong competitor in the hosting market. It performed well in both disk speed and CPU performance, with varying results globally that still held up in non-European regions. This server package would be suitable for businesses looking for reliable and robust web hosting capable of easily handling diverse workloads.
