We truly believe that enterprise-grade performance and reliability should be available to everyone! With this thought in mind, we developed our own storage technology MaxIOPS.
It’s explicitly built to give you the best I/O performance per dollar, without sacrificing any reliability! We have actually limited the performance at 100,000 IOPS per virtual disk to give you high performance at all times. As a result, we offer one of the fastest block storage that is often twice as fast as enterprise-grade SSD.
To this day we stay the fastest cloud server provider currently available on the market. Don’t believe us? Check this in-depth comparison by Cloud Spectator of the 10 best European cloud providers on the market. We are #1 performance leader in Europe.
And you don’t need worry about the extra costs of migrating from a different cloud provider. We offer an exclusive 2-month free cloud migration period for our business customers.
DigitalOcean pricing does not provide you with the freedom of scaling resources independently (i.g. RAM, Storage, CPU). For example, to scale an application your only option is to switch to the next available plan tier and increase your overall costs.
DigitalOcean alternative UpCloud lets you choose what fits in your budget. You can select one of the Simple plans or choose CPU, RAM and Storage individually with our Flexible planning.
Resources are billed by the usage. If you shut down a freely scalable cloud server, you only pay for the reserved storage and IP addresses.
DigitalOcean doesn’t support Windows servers! UpCloud provides you with both Linux and Windows server options. Choose from your favourite Linux distributions or use the latest Windows Server to deploy your cloud servers.
UpCloud is a part of the Microsoft License Mobility Program and Authorised Mobility Partner. This allows you to migrate existing workloads to UpCloud without any license hassle!
