Managed Kubernetes has launched! Learn more in the announcement blog.
In March 2021, we announced the opening of AU-SYD1 in Sydney, our first data centre in Australia. After a successful launch, we want to make our Sydney data centre even more competitive and introduce more users to the world’s fastest cloud.
As a result, we are lowering the regional prices. Starting today, we offer the same premium cloud platform but with an even higher price to performance ratio for our Oceanian customers.
Our Sydney data centre is located in Equinix’s flagship Sydney data centre SY5, which belongs to the locally most networked data centre campus. With 9,220 cabinets when fully built, it is the largest Equinix’s data centre in Australia and meets all the highest security and reliability standards.
The data centre provides the same exceptional performance as our 11 other data centres, and geographical proximity to Australia and Oceania makes it extremely fast for local businesses. It also features the AMD EPYC processors with even more CPU cores and increased performance compared to the previous Intel generations.
Starting today, all Simple plans, Simple Backups, and Flexible plans in the Sydney data centre match our worldwide prices. We continue to offer the same simple, predictable pricing model: enjoy our quality service with 100% uptime SLA and 24/7 technical support as standard.
We’ve been happy to see the strong uptake in our Sydney data centre right from the launch. However, we want to help even more customers in Australia to run their services on the world’s fastest cloud servers by cutting our prices by 33%.

In this post, we have collected information about different server options to help make the distinction among a broad range of available hosting services and service providers.
For the 2015 event, we wanted to show off some benchmarks and created a benchmarking game comparing UpCloud, AWS EC2, and DigitalOcean.
Community and events
We want to stay competitive with regards to the pricing of our services. It is one of our main values along redundancy, performance and privacy.
Finally, about time! Nice effort Upcloud.
