99Stack Chile Santiago Intel Xeon Processor Standard Instance Test and Review

We’re reviewing the Standard Shared vCPU VPS Hosting from 99Stack in Chile, Santiago. It comes with an Intel Xeon Processor, and includes:

– 2 CPU cores
– 4 GB of memory
– 80 GB SSD for storage
– A fast 10 Gbps internet connection
– 3 TB of data transfer limit
– One IPv4 and one IPv6 address

We’ll run several tests:

– Basic Benchmarks to check general performance.
– Yabs and Unix Benchmark to measure key performance indicators.
– Global Node Test to see how well the network performs on a wider scale.
– Global Ping Test to check how quickly the server responds.
– Use the media Unlock Test to determine if regional content can be accessed.
– PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance to evaluate how well websites will run.

About 99Stack

99Stack Cloud is a decentralized cloud service that prioritizes privacy and offers many services. It was established in early 2016 as 99Stack Hosting, with its roots in the heart of Värmland, Sweden. The company started with its first micro data center and office in Karlstad, Sweden, focusing on KVM virtual machines fueled by GNU+Linux for simplified application deployment.

A wide range of independent data center operators powers the platform. This allows users to manage their public cloud resources through a unified user interface without vendor lock-in or centralized dependencies. This approach ensures that the platform remains decentralized and resistant to censorship.

One of the key features of 99Stack Cloud is its commitment to privacy. The company does not collect more than the absolute minimum amount of personal information required to establish a contract. Users can top up their balance with any major cryptocurrency, including privacy coins.

99Stack Cloud serves areas typically under-served by other cloud providers and the major popular regions. This allows users to boost their global presence, with public cloud resources available on every continent near their customers.

The platform offers enterprise-grade infrastructure at a fraction of the cost compared to Big Tech clouds. Users can deploy public cloud instances and resources with hourly billing and pay only for what they use. This pay-as-you-go model provides flexibility and cost-effectiveness for businesses of all sizes.

In addition to standard cloud servers, 99Stack Cloud also offers object storage instances. These are optimized for storing unstructured files and data, are fully S3 compatible, fully scalable, and powered by the Min.io open-source object storage engine.

Test IPv4: 64.176.2.7

Santiago, Chile, is a great data center location because of its favorable climate and cost-effective operating environment. It is located in a seismically stable region, and its average humidity levels are perfect for maintaining server hardware. Additionally, the cost of electricity is relatively low, and there is a high availability of energy thanks to the country’s vast hydroelectric resources.

The country has one of the highest internet speeds in Latin America, and it is connected to a wide range of international networks, making it a great choice for cloud hosting. Finally, the government has been actively encouraging foreign investment in the IT sector, making it even more attractive to businesses looking to establish regional data centers.
