OVHcloud United States Ashburn Public Cloud General Purpose Instance Test and Review

Our review will intensely scrutinize the OVHcloud United States Ashburn Public Cloud General Purpose Instance Shared vCPU VPS Server. This server functions on an Intel Core Processor (Haspring model, sans TSX), equipped with 2 CPU Cores, an ample 7 GB RAM, 50 GB of SSD Storage, and a rapid connection facilitated by a 250 Mbps Internet Port. It offers unlimited traffic capacity and the option of 1x IPv4 and 1x IPv6 Address.

Our comprehensive analysis will involve a multitude of stringent evaluations. We’ll apply the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark tests for a detailed study of critical metrics. Then, we’ll carry out the Global Node Test to provide an in-depth network analysis. The Global Ping Test will be employed to assess latency.

Additionally, we will administer the Media Unlock Test to examine regional accessibility and the CloudFlare Internet Test to evaluate the quality of the connection. The server’s web performance will be further scrutinized using PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance metrics. These thorough evaluations will deliver a deep, insightful understanding of the server’s performance capabilities.

Embarking on your journey with OVHcloud Public Cloud necessitates creating an OVHcloud customer account. Following account setup, you can craft a Public Cloud project – a dedicated environment aligned with specific contexts, such as keeping your test and production environments distinct by mapping them onto two projects.

To kickstart your first OVHcloud Public Cloud project:

  1. Access the OVHcloud Control Panel by logging in.
  2. Navigate to the Public Cloud section and initiate the creation of your first OVH Public Cloud project by clicking on “Create your first OVH Public Cloud project.”
  3. Assign a name to your project, browse through and accede to the contracts, and then proceed by clicking the “Continue” button.
  4. If you are already a registered user, a prompt for registering a payment method will appear, regardless of any voucher application.
  5. Choose a payment method and finalize your action by clicking “Create my project.”

Post completion, you’ll find your brand-new Public Cloud project readily accessible in your OVHcloud Control Panel under the Public Cloud section. This will form the springboard for deploying instances and leveraging various services encapsulated within the OVHcloud Public Cloud offering.

Payments

Aiming for customer convenience, OVHcloud facilitates various payment methods, including using credit and debit cards such as Visa, Mastercard, and Maestro, alongside PayPal, prepaid accounts, bank transfers, and cheques.

To streamline the management of your financial interactions with OVHcloud, payment methods can be comfortably administered via the OVHcloud Control Panel. Introducing a new payment method is simple: log into your account, traverse to the “Payment method” interface, and engage the “Add a payment method” button. This platform also allows you to alter your default payment method or eliminate an existing one.

Your dashboard housed in the OVHcloud Control Panel lists all your pending payments.

Conclusion

We tested our server’s speed, and it didn’t disappoint. At first, we got a speed of 190 MB/s, but it quickly got better, hitting speeds of 718 MB/s and 786 MB/s later. On average, it worked at a solid speed of 564.7 MB/s. When we checked how fast it could send and receive data over the internet, the results were mostly great, with only Hong Kong and China being the exceptions. The fastest upload and download times we saw were in Paris.

For another test that mixes reading and writing data, the fio Disk Speed Tests, our server could handle 80.25 MB/s in one test and over 1.32 GB/s in another. It impressed us when it could process 2.33 GB/s and 2.46 GB/s in the tougher tests. These numbers mean the server can store and manage data well.

We also ran the Geekbench 6 test. It’s like a fitness test for servers. Our server scored 1015 for one thing at a time and 1753 for juggling multiple tasks. You can check out the full scorecard for the specifics. Then, with the UnixBench test, our server proved it could think fast, especially when we asked it to do two things simultaneously. It did particularly well in two brainy tests, scoring 5709.3 and 2301.4.

So, what’s the bottom line? The OVHcloud server in Ashburn is a solid performer. It’s especially good at doing many things simultaneously, which tells us it can handle tough jobs without breaking a sweat. This server is a dependable choice for just about any job that needs to process data fast and keep a lot of information on hand.
