Cherry Servers Netherlands Lightweight Dedicated Bare Metal Server Test and Review

Today, we will look at Cherry Servers‘ Lightweight Bare-metal Dedicated Server in the Netherlands. This server is built around the powerful Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-1620 v4 @ 3.50GHz Processor, including 4 CPU Cores, 32GB ECC DDR4 RAM, twin 250 GB SSD for storage, a hefty 30 TB in traffic, a fast 3 Gbps uplink, and IPv4 address.

Our comprehensive evaluation involves a plethora of demanding tests. We will cover the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark for fundamental metrics. To thoroughly assess the server’s network, we’ll run the Global Node Test and the Global Ping Test to measure latency.

To discern regional accessibility, we’ll conduct the Media Unlock Test, whereas connection quality will be determined through the CloudFlare Internet Test. Furthermore, we’ll utilize tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance to evaluate web performance. We aim to provide you with a deep and holistic understanding of this server’s overall performance capabilities through these extensive measures.
