Overall Satisfaction with UpCloud

We used UpCloud to serve some of our internal infrastructure services. We also used it to host test environments and production environments for a multitude of customer projects. I think the pricing as well was one of the biggest draws for us, along with reliability and performance.
  • Pricing
  • Ease of use - super easy to manage existing servers and deploy new ones
  • Great customer service
  • The billing reports are quite hard to read, could be simplified
  • A control panel function would be useful
  • The re-billing process could be better, not so cut throat if you miss a payment!
  • The uptime
  • Great customer service
  • Well documented API
  • MaxIOPS for storage is fantastic
  • The low cost means you don't really need to worry about pricing
  • To us as a business it was not as useful as DigitalOcean
We trialed UpCloud to see if it would be better than DigitalOcean but for our needs, it was not. On DigitalOcean once a droplet is created, almost no thought needs to go into maintenance, outages, or other reliability-based issues.

Do you think UpCloud delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with UpCloud's feature set?


Did UpCloud live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of UpCloud go as expected?


Would you buy UpCloud again?


If you're looking for a cost-effective solution then this is a good choice, be sure to keep on top of your balance! The 100% uptime is also a nice addition, although not unique in a cloud hosting service.
