Scaleblade United Kingdom London High Frequency Compute Instance Test and Review

We dove into the depths of the Scaleblade United Kingdom London High-Frequency Compute Server recently and were excited by what we found. At the heart of this server is an AMD Processor, decked out with a 2-core CPU, 4 GB of RAM, 60 GB of NVMe SSD storage, and a blazing-fast 10 Gbps internet port, accompanied by unlimited data traffic and both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

Our review covers a bunch of different tests. We started with the basics, checking its core performance using the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark. Then, we widened our scope to look at its network performance globally with the Global Node Test and measured how fast it responds with the Global Ping Test.

We also checked how well it accesses content from different regions using the Media Unlock Test, evaluated its connection quality with the CloudFlare Internet Test, and gauged its web performance using PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance.
