RamNode United States Los Angeles Dedicated CPU VDS Server Hosting Test and Review

In this review, we’re putting the RamNode Los Angeles Dedicated CPU VPS Server under the microscope. The server is located in the United States and outfitted with an Intel Core Processor (Skylake, IBRS). It comes with specifications that include 2 CPU Cores, 8 GB of RAM, an extensive 200 GB SSD storage, and a generous 10 TB of traffic allowance. Additionally, it provides 1x IPv4 and 1x IPv6 addresses.

Our comprehensive analysis entails a series of rigorous tests. We start with the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark to evaluate essential performance metrics. From there, we proceed with the Global Node Test for in-depth network analysis and the Global Ping Test to ascertain latency levels.

To review regional accessibility, we undertake the Media Unlock Test. Connection quality is tested with the CloudFlare Internet Test, and we subsequently evaluate web performance parameters through tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance. This meticulous examination will grant you intriguing insights into the server’s overall performance.

Initial speed tests highlighted the impressive capabilities of its Intel Core Processor – it recorded an average speed of 618.3 MB/s across three consecutive runs, with peaks reaching as fast as 782 MB/s.

Considerable global connectivity measures expose the server’s prowess in international networking. Ultra-low latency of as little as 1.26 ms from Dallas, US, combined with striking upload/download speeds of 900 Mbps from various global locations, make a strong case for the server’s competence in managing international network traffic.

The server further proved its profound abilities in the Fio Disk Speed Tests. Mixed R/W 50/50 testing results showed extraordinary performance across different block sizes, culminating in a total data management speed exceeding 1.03 GB/s. These figures underline the server’s proficiency in expertly managing high-capacity data handling tasks.

The Geekbench 6 Benchmark test affirmed the server’s robust processing capabilities. With a single-core score of 1155 and a multi-core score of 2042, the server’s understanding of high-caliber performance, specifically in multi-threaded workloads, is unquestionable. The completion of the YABS test in a mere 15 minutes and 51 seconds further highlights the efficiency of the server’s resource allocation and operational execution.

The server revealed its notable strengths when tested with UnixBench, meant for evaluating CPU performance. The initial run produced a commanding System Benchmarks Index Score of 1199.2, signifying excellent performance, especially in File Copy operations and Shell Scripts.

An exceptional boost in performance was evident in the second run, which involved executing two parallel copies of the tests – the System Benchmarks Index Score reached an unprecedented 2177.0. This outcome reflects the server’s extraordinary capabilities in managing simultaneous operations.

Drawing insights from this extensive array of tests, the RamNode Los Angeles Dedicated CPU VPS Server demonstrates impressive performance and substantial specifications. Its awe-inspiring speeds, promising latency times, robust data handling prowess, and remarkable processing abilities make it an excellent candidate for high-demand tasks and performance-centric needs.
