Our heritage

We could do better.

UpCloud was formed by a group of like-minded thinkers who saw a clear opportunity to defy mediocrity: to become an IaaS company that would outperform every existing company on the market.

With an uncompromising attitude towards working hard and playing even harder, this camaraderie invested everything they had and with their grit and ambition, they significantly reshaped the landscape of the whole IaaS industry.

What started as a challenger startup, has now become a global player that is outperforming the competition by a landslide.

Our future

Developer driven simplicity. Software defined art

We have set UpCloud on the path of a fully connected, software defined world that will be run by exceptional developers and SME’s, not corporations.

Our vision

To never become yet another.

We aim to create those magic moments, where genius and hard work meet. Where game changing creativity and innovation combine with exceptional talent and camaraderie, to build superior products that outperform the competition.

    that are always above and ahead of the competition. Products that give our customers the artistic freedom and capability to shape the future.
  2. To form a camaraderie
    of exceptional talent and users, that loves to take a walk on the wild side, not yet another company.
  3. To better all
    and to never disconnect from our roots as problem solvers that are always striving for better, to enable our customers to build the most successful online businesses. We do whatever that may take and see every obstacle as an intriguing opportunity.

Our culture

United against the doubters that try to silence your brilliance.

Success isn’t measured just by numbers. It’s measured by the thrill in your veins, when you and your team defy the invincible, by reshaping the possibilities with technology and creativity.

Launch of Initialization scripts & SSH key management

To further ease the management of our users cloud infrastructure, we launched two new features: Initialization scripts and SSH key management. With Initialization scripts, you can quickly and automatically configure your servers during deployment, using common languages such as Bash and CoreOS’ Cloud-config. And thanks to the new SSH key management feature, you no longer have to manually transfer your SSH keys; simply select which SSH keys you want added to your server as you deploy it!

Launch of Group accounts & Server tags

As our users adopted cloud computing and moved more and more of their infrastructure to the cloud, it became increasingly harder to keep everything organized. We launched our Group accounts and Server tags features to combat this, allowing a user to easily give (or restrict) access to specific servers by simply adding the user to a group or adding a tag to the server.

Launch of native IPv6-support

The rate of IPv4 depletion had reached new heights, and it was clear the move to IPv6 had to happen sooner rather than later. To encourage the adoption of IPv6, we launched native IPv6-support and included it for free with all deployed cloud server.

Introducing MaxIOPS

The need for high-performance data storage, with greater flexibility and reliability, was clear. After researching the various offerings on the market, we decided to develop our own storage technology. This resulted in MaxIOPS, the fastest and most reliable storage technology in cloud computing!

9 November 2018

No more confusion regarding IOPS pricing

The “price per IO requests” that was prevalent in the early days of cloud computing (and still is among certain giants) felt too cumbersome for the end-user, and it created a lot of confusion regarding what the cost will finally end up with. So we decided to simply drop it, which made it a lot easier for our users to feel confident about their spending.
