Businesses troubled with unpredictable & high egress costs leads to us completely removing Internet transfer costs.

Egress fees have been the last headache and source of uncertainty for customers transitioning to the cloud. Now, they are a thing of the past.”

UpCloud founder & CTO Joel Pihlajamaa

HELSINKI, Finland – April 1, 2024 – In what’s being hailed as a groundbreaking move in the cloud services industry, UpCloud Ltd. today announced the launch of its revolutionary pricing model – unlimited free outbound traffic for its cloud services.

Our commitment to eliminating barriers in cloud computing drove us to develop this new model.“, stated Antti Vilpponen, CEO of UpCloud.
Echoed by founder and CTO, Joel Pihlajamaa, “This isn’t just an advancement; it’s a revolution. Unlimited egress represents our pledge to empowering developers and businesses with true freedom and flexibility.
