Rackdog Australia Sydney Unmetered Bandwidth Cloud Server Test and Review

We’ve checked the Rackdog Australia Sydney Unmetered Bandwidth Cloud Server. It’s packed with power, thanks to its Intel Xeon Processor (Skylake, IBRS). The specs include a dual-core CPU, 4 GB of RAM, 60 GB SSD storage, a speedy 1 Gbps internet connection, and one IPv4 address.

We’re diving into many tests to see what this server can do. First, we’ve got the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark to see how it performs. Then, we’re looking at how fast it connects worldwide with the Global Node Test and measuring how quickly it responds with the Global Ping Test.

For those interested in streaming and media, we’re checking out its accessibility with The Media Unlock Test. We’re also testing the quality of its connection with the CloudFlare Internet Test, and we’ll see how quickly web pages load with tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix.
