Virtono France Paris KVM-based Cloud VPS Hosting Test and Review

Let’s dive into the review of Virtono‘s Cloud VPS Hosting based in Paris, France. This server runs on a strong Intel Xeon Gold processor, with these specs: a dual-core CPU, 2GB of memory, 40GB of solid-state storage, a 1Gbps internet connection, 2TB of bandwidth, and both an IPv4 and an IPv6 address.

We’ve run many tests to see how well this server performs. We started with basic performance checks, did network quality tests that looked at how it connects globally, and measured how quickly it responds to pings worldwide.

We also checked how easy it is to access content from different regions and tested internet connection quality through CloudFlare. Finally, we used tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix to see how snappy and efficient websites would be if hosted on this VPS.

About Virtono

Virtono is a renowned provider of various hosting services, including Cloud Virtual Private Server (VPS) solutions. Their offerings are designed to cater to a wide range of needs, from individuals to businesses, and are known for their reliability and affordability.

The VPS services offered by Virtono are based on Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) technology. This means that each VPS operates independently of the others and has its dedicated resources, ensuring optimal performance and stability.

One of the standout features of Virtono’s VPS solutions is the use of Solid State Drives (SSD) for storage. SSDs are known for their superior read/write speeds compared to traditional hard drives, which can significantly enhance the performance of hosted applications and websites.

In addition to SSD storage, Virtono utilizes RAID arrays to improve further write speed and IOps and provide fault tolerance. This means your data remains safe even during a drive failure, and the server continues to operate without interruption.

Virtono’s infrastructure is built on professional hardware, including DELL servers and Cisco routers. This ensures high performance and reliability. Moreover, they guarantee 99.99% uptime for their nodes and network, so you don’t have to worry about unexpected downtime affecting your operations.

Conclusion

During the Basic Bench tests, the server’s input/output (I/O) operations demonstrated average speeds hovering around 352.7 MB/s, suggesting satisfactory performance; it is not top-of-the-line but far from poor. Network-wise, the most impressive results came from within Europe (Paris and Amsterdam), where upload and download speeds almost hit the 1 Gbps mark. Less impressive but adequate numbers were seen in other international locations, showcasing the server’s decent global reach.

The Yabs performance test, focused on disk speed, showed a mix of read and write operations at different block sizes. Results like 727.16 MB/s for mixed reads and writes at a 64k block size indicate good responsiveness for typical hosting scenarios. However, for larger block sizes, the performance didn’t quite breach the 1 GB threshold that would mark it as excellent, but it stayed in the good realm.

The Geekbench 6 benchmark test for CPU performance returned a single-core score of 846 and a multi-core score of 1470. These numbers point to a decent processing capability that aligns with the expected performance for standard users but doesn’t break into the higher echelons reserved for more powerful setups.

UnixBench scores, particularly the system index score of 2017.6 when running two copies of the test in parallel, highlight a solid CPU performance, with the server proving adept at handling multiple tasks simultaneously. This robustness is crucial for a server expected to manage several applications.

To conclude, Virtono’s France-based Cloud VPS service delivers respectable performance levels across the board, excelling in local network capabilities. It provides competent I/O speed and CPU processing, suitable for various hosting needs. While it doesn’t wow with top-tier performance in every category, it is reliable for users seeking a balanced VPS offering.
