LayerStack’s Dedicated CPU Cloud Servers Crowned 3rd by VPSBenchmarks

We once thought that we couldn’t make bricks without straw. Perhaps, in fact, we can’t. But wielding the power of cloud servers, you can run businesses in this technology-forward world without having to maintain on-premises infrastructure.

The real challenge, then, comes to finding a hosting solution – among all the providers, offerings, and cost options available – that fits your need. It is a bewildering task, and hours are spent. Fortunately, independent benchmarking platforms like VPSBenchmarks look at some of the top providers around the world and give credible monthly evaluations of their services.

Last month, LayerStack’s dedicated CPU cloud servers – DC108-HK – proudly ranked 3rd in the Best VPS category, in which VPSBenchmarks reviewed 15 similar cloud server offerings for their web performance, raw CPU power, stability and other factors.

At LayerStack, we strive to provide high-performance and reliable architecture that gives you the most bang for the buck.

With our dedicated CPU cloud servers, you have all resources available – 100% CPU power, clock speed, storage – at your disposal. You can enjoy every ounce of benefits that our superior infrastructure brings so your system can run at peak performance and maximum stability at all times. Market-leading hardware is an integral part of our cloud solutions, including the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ (clock speed up to 3.3GHz) and the enterprise PCIe Gen 4 NVMe storage.

Having a dedicating server all to yourself without any CPU steal means performance is predictable and latency is low, making it perfect for workloads that require high and constant CPU processing, such as AI, machine learning, CI/CD, batch processing, and video encoding.

Interested in our other cloud server solutions? We’ve got you covered. LayerStack offers an arsenal of equally performant cloud server plan options that major benchmarking platforms and our clients continuously vouch for. Check below for details.

LayerStack’s Cloud Servers Attain Impressive Performance Benchmarks

Choosing the right cloud servicer can be a grind. You need to do your homework, or let others – namely Geekbench – do the homework for you and you read their results, here.

For most demand-heavy workloads, whether a cloud service is as good as they tell you essentially boils down to two key factors – how fast the CPU is, and how powerful the memory is. With LayerStack, you get the best of both worlds.

LayerStack’s latest high-frequency, turbo-boosted CPU clocking 3.4 GHz outperforms both Intel Skylake and Intel Xeon, according to Geekbench.

In terms of memory performance, LayerStack’s cloud servers get staggeringly better Geekbench scores than Intel Xeon Gold and Intel Xeon. With low latency and lightning-fast read/write speeds, our infrastructure lets you coast through any and all memory-intensive tasks.

VPSBenchmarks did their homework too! Check here to view details.

Latest Product and Feature Updates: Feb 2021

LayerStack is consistently committed to improving and providing our valued customers with superior cloud computing services. We have adjusted the plans and offers on LayerPanel as well as introduced new features, the highlights are listed below:

Global Private Network:  We are excited to announce that the Global Private Network is officially launched, it is now available in Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan. Users can transfer data through the private Layer 2 connection (dedicated VLAN) between cloud servers regionally and globally. Through the private data link layer networks between instances, it increases security and privacy during data transfer by end-to-end encryption.

Cloud Servers with Enterprise PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSD:  High Frequency CPU and Dedicated CPU cloud servers are equipped with the ultra-fast PCIe Gen4 NVMe SSD (enterprise version).  NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) SSD enhances consistency, reliability and performance while increasing the efficiency for data storage, management, and accessibility.

Updates in Memory Optimized Cloud Server Plans: The specification of HM24-HK & HM48-HK have been upgraded while HM90-HK has been removed since 09 Feb 2021. Moreover, HM64-HK & HM128-HK have been newly added. For more details, please view the price plan.

Dedicated GPU For Cloud Servers

Dedicated GPU Cloud Servers

It is pleased to announce the new Dedicated GPU option specially designed for users with intensive and special computing needs. Users can harness the full power of dedicated GPU to achieve ultra-high performance computing cloud servers specialized in Data Parallel Computation, Machine Learning and Graphically-Intensive Projects.

Machine Learning

GPU is widely used in deep learning because of the strong capability of parallel computing. Compared to CPU, GPU has much more cores to learn representations automatically from data such as images, video or text. Thus, it helps to reduce machine learning training time from days to minutes, enabling researchers and developers to obtain faster, more accurate information from deep learning.

Graphically Demanding Applications

Besides, GPU is effective in video and image rendering. The long rendering time is always a major issue to creative professionals that tied up computing resources and stifled creative flow. Modern GPUs enable and accelerate the cloud servers to process video and graphic in higher-definition formats. Obviously, it is also powerful in computationally intensive gaming, providing gamers with smoother and higher-quality gaming experience.

Specification

LayerStack offers NVIDIA® Tesla T4 GPU for intensive users. T4 is a high rating GPU with 2560 CUDA cores and 320 Tensor cores, it has 16GB GDDR6 Memory and 40 RT core. Work together with best-in-class AMD EPYC2 CPU to deliver the best cloud performance for most demanding applications.
