Virtono United States Los Angeles KVM-based Cloud VPS Test and Review

We’re putting the Virtono Cloud VPS in Los Angeles to the test. This virtual server is equipped with a fast Intel Xeon Gold 5218 CPU, and its setup includes 2 CPU cores, 2 GB of memory, 50 GB of SSD storage, fast 1 Gbps internet connectivity, and an IPv4 and IPv6 address.

Our review covers a range of tests: we’ll check basic performance levels, connection speeds, and how it handles different workloads. We’ll also see how well it connects globally and how quickly it can send and receive data.

Plus, we’ll check if you can access region-specific content, test the connection quality with CloudFlare, and measure website speeds with tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix.

Conclusion

Starting with the basics, the average I/O speed hovered around 350 MB/s. While not reaching the impressive 500 MB/s mark that signifies ‘good,’ it managed to steer clear of the ‘poor’ category, which falls below 200 MB/s. The server’s upload and download prowess was proven through various node tests, with the best performance shown in local networks, as expected. Despite some distance latency, the speeds largely remained high. The notable exception was Hong Kong, which presented unusually low numbers.

The Yabs performance test confirmed the earlier I/O results, with mixed read/write operations showing a decent total speed across different block sizes. Geekbench 6’s benchmark for single-core performance placed the server in the ‘standard’ category with a score of 769, and the multi-core score of 1342 suggests a ‘good’ performance. The UnixBench scores were impressive, especially when the server utilized both CPU cores, achieving an overall index score of 2027.1, which puts it in the ‘excellent’ category.

In conclusion, the Virtono Cloud VPS in Los Angeles delivers a solid performance. Its strengths are most apparent when the server fully leverages its multi-core capabilities, which catapult it into the ‘excellent’ index score range. Although the I/O speeds weren’t groundbreaking, they comfortably sat in a decent range, suggesting that the server can handle most tasks without sweat.

The deployment should be well-suited for various tasks, from hosting websites to running applications, particularly for users in or near the United States, where the connectivity is strongest. The server’s performance across global connections is adequate, though some regional disparities are to be expected.
