"Our very positive experiences with UpCloud and their MaxIOPS architecture"

What do you like best?

Well the first thing we love is just how passionate these guys are for performance. Their MaxIOPS technology really rocks (both disk and network). Compared to everything else we've tried the UpCloud instances are super snappy. We switched out from AWS/DigitalOcean after we had run a number of tests to verify the claims. They are a very friendly bunch as well and we love that they aren't a large mega-corp.

What do you dislike?

We haven't really found much not to like. The dashboard is very easy to use, the servers are easy to provision, and we can understand the billing (which is more than we can say for many others). If I had to come up with something - I dunno, maybe a better way to create servers in bulk. They are doing good as far as we are concerned.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't hesitate to give them a go, and you're more than welcome to talk to me if you have any questions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a startup developing a very high performance distributed compute platform and need to be able to run tests on close to bare metal cloud instances. Finding UpCloud has saved us a lot of money since nobody else offers things like 20 CPU instances and very fast I/O for any reasonable sum of money. It's been a big deal for us and we have been very pleased with our experience.

"Highly recommended "

What do you like best?

Ease of use, managing existing servers and deploying new ones couldn't be much easier. Excellent performance. User friendly L3 firewall makes managing filtering rules a joy. Customer service is quick and friendly.

What do you dislike?

Web console, while rarely needed, could use a makeover, typing special characters doesn't seem to work very well. Billing reports are very detailed but could be easier to read, e.g. per server summaries would be nice.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for ease of use, high performance and mostly static capacity (scaling servers is possible but not on-the-fly), you should definitely try UpCloud.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using UpCloud to serve some of our internal infrastructure services and to host test and production environments for various customer projects. Pricing and ease of use beats competition when we need mostly static capacity.

What Virtual Private Servers (VPS) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Ultra fast, reliable, superb customer service"

What do you like best?

It is hard to name one feature. We love UpCloud! This is a kind of service that once you use it, you always compare others to UpCloud. We've tried DO, Vultr, Linode they are all good but UC is simply the best. I love performance that feels like bare metal, fastest backups / restore on the market and superior customer service.

What do you dislike?

I don't have dislikes, UpCloud works great :)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it, you will fall in love with UpCloud :)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are SaaS company. Rreliability, performance and friendly pricing is what we are looking in a cloud provider. We tried other providers but with diferent results. UpCloud gave us security and piece of mind, so we can think about growing our business, rather than thinking about infrastructure.

"100 Days Review of Upcloud"

What do you like best?

The Awesome Server Pricing.

The well documented api.

The very nice sales team, that will do anything to get you setup with all your needs.

The uptime, During the more than one hundred days that we've tested upcloud, we had 0 downtime, an 100% uptime, on all our servers.

What do you dislike?

The invoicing is So complicated when compared to digital ocean or linode, Their pricing model are more like amazon then a cloud server company.

The Billing method is Prepaid, with a very scary email sent almost daily. Something like, Your balance will serve you for 8 days then will terminate your servers.. VERY SCARY.

Besides the very hard to understand billing model, Its an AWESOME company, with a great future.

The support only works on helsinky hours, witch are very different from my timezone.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its an awesome service, Very fair pricing and definitely has a great future up ahead. Once it becomes more user friendly especially about the billing and invoicing, It will definitely bother some big players.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've hosted over 10 servers for arround 100 days,

"Reliable, fast and reasonably priced"

What do you like best?

That's easy, MaxIOPS is the killer feature. Dedicated resources make environment production ready. Many similar VPS providers use vCPU resources or shared resources, which isn't ok for serious production environments. This environment allows running systems with half of the memory (or less) compared to many other providers. Because there's no such need for huge disk cache due slow storage access.

What do you dislike?

The additional 1.5x pricing factor for Helsinki data center.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Free trial, try it out. You'll probably love it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Database and application server environments for our clients.

"Scalable cloud VPS hosting, great UI!"

What do you like best?

The Upcloud management user interface is very easy to use. Servers spin up quickly with up-to-date pre-configured OS disk images.

MaxIOPS for storage is absolutely terrific for its incredible speed.

What do you dislike?

Currently, you can't change the routing on the IP addresses. There's no way to migrate an IP address you're using to a different VPS instance.

I also wish there was a way to pay via invoice instead of credit card.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try Upcloud's freely scalable instances and you'll fall in love. Make sure to contact the customer service for shareable coupons as well! :)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

An affordable cloud hosting platform with a datacenter located in Finland.
