Vultr Germany Frankfurt General Purpose Cloud Dedicated Server Test and Review

We recently tested Vultr’s Germany Frankfurt General Purpose Cloud Dedicated Server, which features AMD’s EPYC-Milan Processor with 2 CPU cores, 8 GB RAM, 50 GB NVMe SSD storage, a 1 Gbps internet port, 5 TB of traffic, and both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

During our review, we ran several tests: the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark to measure performance, the Global Node Test to check network speeds from different locations, and the Global Ping Test to assess latency. We also tested media access with the Media Unlock Test, connection quality with the CloudFlare Internet Test, and web performance with PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix.

About Vultr

Vultr Dedicated CPU Cloud Compute offers high performance with dedicated resources. You can say goodbye to noisy neighbors because you get dedicated CPU, SSD drives, and RAM. This means you have resources exclusively yours, ensuring optimal application performance.

With Vultr, you can rent 25%, 50%, 75%, or even an entire dedicated server. This flexibility allows you to scale your resources based on your needs. Plus, the platform offers hourly billing and fast provisioning, making it a cost-effective solution for businesses of all sizes.

Vultr Dedicated Instances are available in 32 locations worldwide. You can quickly deploy your instances in Chicago, Miami, Amsterdam, Tokyo, or Sydney. This global presence ensures low latency and high availability for your applications.

Another noteworthy feature is the vast OS library. Vultr lets you spin up a new instance with your preferred operating system or pre-installed application in seconds. Whether you need CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, Windows, FreeBSD, or more, Vultr has covered you. You can even upload your OS image or an external snapshot image in RAW format.

Let’s not forget about the powerful add-ons. Vultr offers a web-based firewall solution that can be enabled on-demand to protect one or more compute instances. This feature enhances the security of your cloud servers, providing an additional layer of protection against potential threats.
