Oblivus Canada Montreal Intel Xeon v3 Cloud Virtual Server Test and Review

We recently tested the Oblivus Canada Montreal Cloud Virtual Server. This cloud server runs on an Intel Core Processor (Haswell, no TSX, IBRS) and comes packed with 4 CPU cores, 4 GB of RAM, 60 GB of SSD storage, a 10 Gbps internet connection, no limits on data usage, and one IPv4 address.

Here’s what our review covers: We put the server through a series of tests to gauge its performance, including Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark. We ran the Global Node Test to assess network speeds from various locations and to check how fast it responds.

For media accessibility, we used The Media Unlock Test. We checked connection quality with the CloudFlare Internet Test and evaluated web performance using PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix.

About Oblivus

Oblivus is the next-generation GPU Cloud that is revolutionizing how we think about cloud computing. This blog post will introduce you to the many features and benefits of Oblivus and explain why it’s becoming a game-changer in the industry.

Firstly, let’s talk about cost. Oblivus is up to 80% cheaper than other cloud services. This is a significant saving, especially for businesses and individuals who rely heavily on cloud computing. This cost-effectiveness is due to the company’s efficient use of resources and innovative technology.

Next, let’s discuss the infrastructure. Oblivus boasts nine data centers and offers 13 different GPU SKUs. With over 18,000 enterprise-grade GPUs, Oblivus can meet any computing requirements, whether you need one GPU or thousands or one vCPU to tens of thousands of vCPUs. This scalability is a major advantage for businesses that must adjust their computing power based on demand.

Moreover, Oblivus offers a lightning-fast API that is up to 30 times faster than major CSPs. This speed allows for quick and efficient data processing, which is crucial for businesses that handle large amounts of data.

In addition to its impressive infrastructure, Oblivus also offers flexibility. You can deploy, modify, and rescale your instances according to your needs. This flexibility allows businesses to adapt quickly to changes and ensures that they only pay for what they use.

Firstly, the portal allows you to manage your instances with ease. You can change operating system images and make hardware adjustments. However, remember that most of these operations can only be performed when your instances are stopped.

Next, the portal provides a quick menu in the Manage column. You can navigate the detailed management screen by clicking on the instance ID. This is where you can perform all the operations mentioned earlier.

Moreover, Oblivus offers a free subdomain service called Oblivus Subdomain Service (OSS) for easier access to your instance. You can also change the state of your instance using the buttons on the right side.

In addition, the portal allows you to reinstall your instance’s operating system or image while preserving the current configuration. This feature can be particularly useful if the boot process takes longer than expected during the instance creation.

Furthermore, when your instance is in a stopped state, you can modify its hardware configuration. However, there are some restrictions. For example, you cannot change the location, platform, operating system, or storage type. Also, you cannot specify an amount lower than your current storage size when adjusting the storage.

Payments

Oblivus operates on a pre-paid balance system. You can top up your account with any amount of credit using your preferred payment method. This system provides full visibility of your usage and spending, making the billing process transparent and easy to understand.

Next, let’s talk about the Auto Top-Up feature for individual accounts. When you top up your account for the first time, your credit card gets registered with Oblivus’ payment provider, Revolut. You can set a low limit and a top-up amount on the Auto Top-Up page in the console.

When your account balance falls below the low limit you set, it will automatically be topped up with the specified amount. This feature ensures you never run out of balance and can continue using the services without interruption.

Moreover, Oblivus offers an exclusive Pay-As-You-Go system for business users. You need to set a minimum limit of $500, which can be adjusted later. This limit will determine your monthly usage quota while the system is active.

You need to pay twice the selected limit to activate the Pay-As-You-Go system. The remaining half of the payment is held as a security deposit and is never used. After each billing cycle, your limit will be reset to the pre-configured PAYG Threshold.
