GBCloud Malaysia Cyberjaya Powerful Cloud SSD Server Test and Review

In today’s review, we’ll put the GBCloud Malaysia Cyberjaya‘s Powerful Flavor Cloud SSD Server to the test. This server is equipped with the compelling Intel Core Processor (Broadwell, IBRS), boasting specifications that include a 2-core CPU, 2GB RAM, 60GB SSD Storage, an internet port with the capacity of 10 Gbps, 3 TB of traffic, along with 1x IPv4 and 1x IPv6 Address.

We’ve lined up a series of comprehensive tests to analyze its performance. We begin with essential performance metrics using the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark. Following this, we’ll delve into a thorough network assessment using the Global Node Test and measure latency with the Global Ping Test.

Moreover, we’ll also evaluate regional accessibility through the Media Unlock Test and connection quality via the CloudFlare Internet Test. Finally, we’ll evaluate website performance using tools like PageSpeed Insights and the GTmetrix Performance test. With these rigorous evaluations, we aim to provide detailed insights into the server’s overall performance.

Conclusion

Today, we put the GBCloud Malaysia Cyberjaya’s Powerful Flavor Cloud SSD Server under rigorous testing to evaluate its performance. This server, armed with an Intel Core Processor (Broadwell, IBRS), hosts a wealth of features, including a 2-core CPU, 2GB RAM, and 60GB SSD Storage. It is equipped with an internet port with a 10 Gbps capacity, handling 3 TB of traffic and providing 1x IPv4 and 1x IPv6 Address.

In our initial testing phase – the basic bench – the server demonstrated impressive I/O Speeds with consistent increases across three iterations. The average I/O speed stood at 912.7 MB/s. Next, our network assessment examined the upload and download speed across various regional servers. The results highlighted the efficiency of server-to-server communication, with standout performances in Hong Kong, Singapore, and the server’s native regional server, Malaysia.

Further testing was conducted using the Yabs Performance Bench, where mixed Read/Write tests were carried out. Results showed admirable speeds across different block sizes, peaking at 2.31 GB/s in the 1m block size. These figures indicate robust performance even in high data traffic scenarios.

Our Geekbench 6 Benchmark Test produced a Single Core score of 798 and a Multi-Core score of 1350, further reinforcing the solid performance of the server. We utilized UnixBench to evaluate the CPU’s performance in our final testing phase. The overall index score was 864.9 when running a single parallel copy of tests. It rose to 1515.9 when two parallel copies were run, demonstrating the ability of the server to handle multiple threads effectively.

In conclusion, the GBCloud Malaysia Cyberjaya’s Powerful Flavor Cloud SSD Server demonstrated its robust and reliable performance through extensive testing. It delivered on various performance parameters, validating its ability to support and optimize website functioning and network operations. Across the board, whether it was I/O speeds, network communication, read/write speeds, or CPU performance, the tests indicate that this server is a powerful contender in the Cloud SSD Server marketplace.
