ServerPoint Netherlands Amsterdam ColossusCloud General Purpose VPS Test and Review

We’re currently testing the ServerPoint Netherlands Amsterdam ColossusCloud General Purpose VPS Server. It’s powered by an Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2680 v4 @ 2.40GHz Processor and comes equipped with 4 CPU cores, 4 GB of RAM, 80 GB of SSD storage, a 1 Gbps internet connection, 4 TB of bandwidth, and a single IPv4 address.

Our review will cover a variety of tests: Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark to see how they perform; the Global Node Test to check network speeds from different locations; and the Global Ping Test to measure response times.

We also used the Media Unlock Test to see which media services it can access, the CloudFlare Internet Test to check the connection quality, and web performance tests using PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix.
