Cherry Servers United States Chicago Middleweight Bare Metal Server Test and Review

In this detailed review, we tested Cherry ServersChicago-based Middleweight Dedicated Bare Metal Servers, powered by a 16 Core AMD EPYC 7313P Processor running at 3 GHz. The server hardware includes 64GB of Registered ECC DDR4 RAM, dual 250GB NVMe SSD storage modules, a 3 Gbps uplink, and a generous 100 TB traffic allowance.

We’re going to thoroughly test the server using a variety of detailed benchmarks and tests. First, we’ll set our basic metrics using the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark tests. Then, we’ll conduct a detailed network evaluation with the Global Node Test and measure latency with the Global Ping Test.

Additionally, we’ll check how easily you can access media content from different regions with the Media Unlock Test. We’ll use the CloudFlare Internet Test to measure the internet connection quality. We’ll use well-known tools like Google’s PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance analysis for web performance.
