Why you should consider migrating to UpCloud

To help you, we created a Cloud migration cookbook where we are:

  • outlining the migration processes
  • listing the benefits you might strive for
  • and looking into the costs of migration
  • With this knowledge, we hope to help you decide on migrating to UpCloud!

With Initialization scripts, you can quickly and automatically configure your servers during deployment, using common languages such as Bash and CoreOS’ Cloud-config.

    22 November 2015

This resulted in MaxIOPS, the fastest and most reliable storage technology in cloud computing!

    9 November 2014

    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.
