Serverspace Kazakhstan Almaty VMware Cloud Unlimited Traffic Virtual Server Test and Review

This review comprehensively examines the Serverspace Kazakhstan Almaty VMware Cloud Shared vCPU VPS Server. This server module is powered by a dynamic Intel(R) Xeon(R) Gold 6248R CPU that operates at 3.00GHz. Key features include 2 CPU cores, 4 GB RAM, an SSD storage capacity of 50 GB, a robust 100 Mbps Internet Port, and unlimited traffic allowance.

Our systematic analysis leverages various meticulous tests to gauge disparate aspects of the server’s performance. We rely on the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark tests for essential metrics. For a holistic network assessment, we carry out the Global Node Test. Simultaneously, latency measurements are systematically arrived at through the Global Ping Test.

In addressing regional accessibility, we execute the Media Unlock Test. For assessing connection quality, we utilize the CloudFlare Internet Test. Additionally, web performance is critically evaluated via trusted platforms such as PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance.
