Linode Akamai United States Atlanta Dedicated CPU Cloud Hosting Test and Review

In this evaluation, we will test the Linode Akamai United States Atlanta Dedicated CPU VPS Server. The AMD EPYC 7713 64-Core Processor powers the server and includes specifications such as 4 CPU cores, 8 GB of RAM, 160 GB of SSD storage, 5 TB of bandwidth, and one each of IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

We’ll begin with the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark tests, which provide essential performance metrics. The Global Node Test will be carried out for a broad network performance assessment, and the Global Ping Test will be employed to evaluate latency.

To ascertain regional accessibility, we’re conducting the Media Unlock Test. The CloudFlare Internet Test will help us gauge the connection quality to the network from various locations. Finally, we’ll glean insights into the server’s web performance using assessments from tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance.
