Vultr Span Madrid General Purpose Cloud Dedicated Server Test and Review

We just tested the Vultr Span Madrid General Purpose Cloud Dedicated Server. It runs on an AMD EPYC-Milan Processor with this setup: 2 CPU Cores, 8 GB RAM, 50 GB SSD Storage, a 1 Gbps Internet Port, 5 TB Traffic, and both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

Our review includes several tests to check different aspects of the server. We use the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark to gauge performance. The Global Node Test shows network speeds from various locations, while the Global Ping Test measures latency. We run The Media Unlock Test to check media access and the CloudFlare Internet Test to assess connection quality. For web performance, we use PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix.
