AdvancedHosting Netherlands Amsterdam Cloud Start Server Test and Review

This time, Our test focus is the AdvancedHosting Public Cloud shared vCPU VPS server in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Riding on the robust Intel Xeon Silver 4216 CPU, clocked at 2.10GHz, the server is configured with 2 CPU cores and a solid 4GB RAM and features 40GB of SSD storage. It benefits from a fast 1 Gbps Internet port, can handle 5TB of traffic, and is equipped with 1x IPv4 and 1x IPv6 addresses.

Our analytical process comprises an assortment of rigorous examination methods. Foundational metrics are measured through the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark tests. The Global Node Test steps into the picture for a more thorough network evaluation, while the Global Ping Test focuses on latency measurements.

Further testing includes the Media Unlock Test, which investigates the server’s regional accessibility, and the Cloudflare Internet Test, which is deployed to gauge connection quality. Elsewhere, we leverage powerful toolsets like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance for effective web performance evaluations. Under these thorough tests, you can expect deep and comprehensive insights into the overall performance of the particular server.

On the network performance front, the server delighted with its upload and download speeds across various locations. The Holland-based server registered a stellar 4672.20 Mbps upload and 8624.67 Mbps download speeds.

To assess read & write capabilities, ‘fio’ Disk Speed Tests were performed. The results confirmed excellent speed and efficiency, with the 4k block size producing a total IOPS (input/output operations per second) of 51.0k and the 1m block size generating an IOPS of 2.8k. These metrics speak to the data-intensive tasks and overall solid performance the server can handle.

Further evaluations using Geekbench 6 and UnixBench unveiled eye-opening metrics in CPU performance. The Geekbench test showed respectable single and multi-core scores of 860 and 1571, respectively. Simultaneously, the UnixBench test accentuated the high-performance levels of the server, with crucial parameters exceeding the baseline significantly, especially in areas like system call overhead and file copying.

In conclusion, the meticulous evaluation and testing of the AdvancedHosting Public Cloud shared vCPU server indicate robust performance, exceptional data handling capability, impressive download and upload speeds, and excellent CPU performance.
