UpCloud Singapore AMD EPYC General Purpose Cloud Server Test and Review

This time, let’s test the UpCloud Singapore General Purpose Cloud Server. It boasts an AMD EPYC 7542 32-core Processor and comes equipped with 4 Cores CPU, 8 GB RAM, 160 GB SSD storage, a 1 Gbps Internet port, 5 TB of traffic, as well as one IPv4 and one IPv6 address.

We’re going to cover a variety of tests in our review. These include the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark to check the server’s performance. We’ll also run the Global Node Test to see how fast it connects from different places worldwide and the Global Ping Test to measure how quickly it responds.

On top of that, we’ll explore media accessibility with The Media Unlock Test, check connection quality with the CloudFlare Internet Test, and evaluate web performance using PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix.
