Zenlayer Indonesia Jakarta General-Purpose Virtual Machine Test and Review

We recently ran a comprehensive series of tests on the Zenlayer Indonesia Jakarta General-Purpose Virtual Machine, which is equipped with an Intel Xeon Processor, 2 CPU cores, 8 GB of RAM, 40 GB of SSD storage, a robust 1000 Mbps internet connection, and one IPv4 address.

We conducted several tests in our review to measure its performance and capabilities. These included the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark to gauge performance metrics. Using the Global Node Test, we assessed network speeds from different locations and checked latency with the Global Ping Test.

Additionally, we tested for media accessibility using The Media Unlock Test, evaluated connection quality through the CloudFlare Internet Test, and analyzed web performance with tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix.

About Zenlayer

Zenlayer stands out with its Virtual Machine Instance, a service that’s part of the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud services bucket. This service offers high-performance, robust, and scalable computing capability. Let’s dive into the details.

Firstly, Zenlayer’s Virtual Machine Instance allows you to deploy computing nodes globally conveniently and flexibly. You can set up virtual servers to host your application or online business anywhere. Imagine having the power to reach your customers wherever they are without physical infrastructure. That’s the beauty of Zenlayer’s service.

Secondly, Zenlayer makes deploying and securing applications on Virtual Machines easy. You can set up your virtual machines in minutes using their web interface, API, or Terraform. This flexibility lets you choose the best method for your technical skills and project requirements.

Thirdly, Zenlayer provides a free virtual firewall to secure your apps. This firewall, also known as a security group, controls the inbound and outbound traffic of your Virtual Machines. With this feature, you can ensure the security of your applications without the need for additional software or hardware.

Next, Zenlayer’s service is scalable both horizontally and vertically. You can add more Virtual Machines or change the specs on your deployed Virtual Machines to match computing power to real-time needs. This scalability ensures that your applications can handle increased traffic or data processing requirements when needed.

Conclusion

In our Basic Bench test focusing on I/O Speed, the machine averaged 185.3 MB/s across three runs, indicating a performance that could be improved since it’s below the 200 MB/s mark, which is considered poor. On the network front, the server showed impressive upload and download speeds across various international nodes. For instance, in Singapore, the server reached peak speeds with 1272.77 Mbps upload and 1268.48 Mbps download, with an exceptionally low latency of 13.13 ms.

Further evaluations using Yabs and fio disk speed tests reflected mixed results in disk operations, with up to 196.21 MB/s in mixed read/write processes – this sits in the average performance bracket. The Geekbench 6 tests painted a brighter picture with 1169 and multi-core scores of 2127, placing the machine well into the ‘good’ category for single-core performance and ‘excellent’ for multi-core operations.

The UnixBench tests backed this up, particularly when running parallel copies of tests, whereby the system scored high across most parameters, including a system benchmark index of 2541.5, indicating a very good overall capability for handling multiple simultaneous operations.

In conclusion, the Zenlayer GPVM in Jakarta holds robust potential in handling high-demand tasks. While the I/O speed shows room for improvement, its excellent handling in network performance and multi-core processing showcases a promising capacity for diverse applications. This server is particularly suited to environments where high multi-threading capabilities are crucial despite the need for better storage performance enhancements.
