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

Today, we’re putting the OVHcloud United States Oregon Hillsboro Public Cloud General Purpose Instance under the test. This server harnesses the power of an Intel Core Processor (Haswell, no TSX) and boasts specifications like dual-core CPU, 7 GB of RAM, and 50GB SSD Storage, coupled with an impressive 250 Mbit/s internet speed.

Our diversified test suite includes the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark, which are aimed at providing essential performance metrics. We’ve included the Global Node Test in our quest for a holistic network evaluation. The Global Ping Test will give us a measure of latency, a crucial factor in real-time applications.

Regarding regional accessibility, the Media Unlock Test gives us valuable data. Our investigation of connection quality employs the CloudFlare Internet Test, while web performance is meticulously assessed via PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance tests.
