GlassHost United States New York Intel Xeon High Power Budget VPS Test and Review

Let’s dive into a review of the GlassHost‘s US-based New York VPS, a budget-friendly option that’s got some serious muscle under the hood thanks to an Intel Xeon Processor (the E5-2699 v3 at 2.30GHz, to be exact). This server setup includes a 4-core CPU, 16 GB of RAM, 64 GB SSD storage, 10 Gbps internet connection and Path.NET DDoS protection across the entire /24 network, 2 TB of data transfer, and an IPv4 and IPv6 address.

Our hands-on testing will cover a lot: we’ve got a slew of benchmarks lined up to measure its vital stats (Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark). We will check network performance from different global points (Global Node Test) and how quickly it responds (Global Ping Test).

On top of that, we’ll see if it can access media from various regions (Media Unlock Test) and how solid its connection is with CloudFlare’s network (CloudFlare Internet Test), and we’ll wrap up by checking its speed in delivering web content (PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance tests). Stay tuned to see how this VPS holds up to the scrutiny!

Conclusion

We struck gold with the disk performance by jumping into our tests for GlassHost’s New York VPS. The average I/O speed was 1.2 GB/s, well into the excellent category. This is crucial for applications that rely heavily on fast read and write operations and means you can expect your server to handle heavy disk activity like a champ.

Network speeds didn’t disappoint, either. With downloads and uploads blazing past the 1 Gbps mark on local U.S. tests, it’s evident this server can keep up with the demand. The only hiccup was with connectivity in Asia, particularly Hong Kong, which experienced severely slow speeds, suggesting that if your audience is global, you’ll need to keep an eye on performance across the seas.

When we put the CPU to the test with Geekbench, the single-core score didn’t exactly shine, sitting just under the ‘standard’ category at 920. But the multi-core score, hovering around 2899, tells us that when all cores get going, it’s a smooth sail – a good sign for multi-threaded applications.

The UnixBench scores sealed the deal with impressive results, especially when all four cores were firing. It pulled off a score of 3015.2 when running in multi-core mode, turning a marathon into a sprint. This kind of CPU strength means multi-tasking on this server will be its bread and butter.

To wrap it up – if your server needs to sit stateside and you’re looking for a machine that can juggle tasks without breaking a sweat, GlassHost’s VPS is well worth considering. Remember that while it packs a performance punch, reaching clients across the Pacific might be slower. But for everyone else, especially those busiest in the U.S., this server’s robust capabilities offer exactly what you need.
