ServerMania United States New Jersey Cloud Virtual Server Hosting Test and Review

We’re slated to put through its paces the cutting-edge ServerMania Cloud Shared vCPU VPS Server in New Jersey, United States. This server is anchored on the potent Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2695 v2 @ 2.40GHz Processor and is well-equipped with 2 CPU cores, a solid stash of 4GB RAM, spacious 80GB SSD Storage, generous 4TB Traffic, and a singular IPv4 address.

Our comprehensive review process includes many meticulous tests: the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark tests are undertaken to decipher essential performance parameters. On the network side, we’ll employ the Global Node Test for a thorough network review and the Global Ping Test to quantify latency levels accurately.

We also assess regional accessibility through the Media Unlock Test, while the connection quality is examined via the CloudFlare Internet test. To evaluate the server’s web performance, we turn to the reliable techniques of PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance. These all-encompassing evaluations promise to offer profound insights into the overarching interpretation of the server.

Servermania offers very competitive pricing for their cloud server offerings. Here are some details on their cloud server pricing structure:

  • Pay-as-you-go pricing – Customers only pay for the server capacity per hour. This provides flexibility to scale up and down based on real-time requirements.
  • RAM-based tiers – Servermania provisions cloud servers in tiers based on the amount of RAM allocated. The tiers range from 2GB RAM servers starting at $0.05/hour to 96GB RAM servers at $1.60/hour.
  • CPU cores add-on – Customers can increase the number of CPU cores beyond the base amount for each RAM tier for an additional hourly fee. More cores allow for greater parallel processing capabilities.
  • Storage add-ons – Servermania offers SSD-backed storage to be added to cloud servers at $0.10 per GB/month. This provides fast, durable storage for applications and data sets.
  • 1GB Network Uplinks – All Servermania cloud servers have 1Gbps network uplinks for high throughput and low latency connectivity. Faster 10Gbps connections are available as a paid add-on.
  • Reserved instances – Customers can save up to 60% for steady-state workloads by pre-paying for 6-month or 1-year reserved cloud server capacity. This offers a significant discount over pay-as-you-go hourly billing.
  • Bulk discounts – Organizations that provision many cloud servers can qualify for custom discounted rates based on volume. This provides better value for large fleets.
  • Load balancing – Servermania provides full-featured load balancing starting at an additional $20 per month to distribute traffic across groups of cloud servers.

Servermania’s pay-as-you-go model grants flexibility, while reserved instances and bulk discounts enable businesses to optimize cloud costs. Their pricing is structured to make scalable cloud infrastructure affordable for most use cases.

Conclusion

Our rigorous examination process started with the ServerMania Cloud Shared vCPU VPS server. It involved several stages, beginning with the I/O Speed tests, which exhibited a robust average of 597.3 MB/s on three counts (537 MB/s, 625 MB/s, 630 MB/s).

Subsequently, the server underwent Global Node Tests, which examined upload and download speeds and latency across several international locations like Los Angeles, Dallas, Montreal, Paris, Amsterdam, Shanghai, Nanjing, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Tokyo. The fastest recorded download speed was an impressive 7640.22 Mbps from Speedtest.net, with regional performance varying globally.

The server demonstrated notable performance in the fio Disk Speed Tests, which assesses both Reading and Writing Speeds. At the block size 4k (IOPS), the read speed was 92.81 MB/s, and the write speed was 93.05 MB/s. The numbers spiked when the block size increased to 64k (IOPS), with read and write rates reaching 361.93 MB/s and 363.84 MB/s, respectively.

When tested at a block size of 512k, the read and write speeds achieved were 409.31 MB/s and 431.06 MB/s, while at block size 1m (IOPS), the server recorded read and write speeds of 416.92 MB/s and 444.68 MB/s respectively, demonstrating solid performance.

The Geekbench 6 Benchmark Test provided more supporting data, showing a Single Core score of 408 and a Multi-Core score of 737. Meanwhile, the YABS test thoroughly assessed server performance, concluding in less than 24 minutes.

An exciting part of the assessment was the UnixBench test, which evaluated CPU performance. The first run of the test showed a System Benchmarks Index score of 711.7, which increased markedly to 1251.2 on the second run with two parallel copies of tests, indicating effective handling of parallel tasks. Key metrics like the Dhrystone 2 using register variables and Double-Precision Whetstone noted substantial progress between the first and second rounds of the benchmark tests.

The ServerMania Cloud Shared vCPU VPS server manifested a potent performance in comprehensive tests. This included robust I/O speeds, highly satisfying disk speed stats, a commendable Geekbench score, and convincing results from the UnixBench test. All this data corroborates that the server is well-equipped for handling demanding tasks and delivering high-speed and efficient service across various applications and locations.
