We truly believe that enterprise-grade performance and reliability should be available for everyone! With this thought in mind, we developed our own storage technology by the name 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? Here is a highly detailed and in-depth comparisons report of the best European cloud providers on the market from Cloud Spectator.
DigitalOcean’s cloud pricing plans don’t provide you with the flexibility of scaling resources separately (i.g. RAM, Storage, CPU). For example, to scale an application your only option is to switch to the next available plan thus increasing your overall costs.
At UpCloud we let you choose what fits your needs and budget the best. You can select one of the preconfigured plans or choose CPU, RAM and Storage individually. The resources are only 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 both Linux and Windows server support. Choose from your favourite linux distribution or use existing windows server licenses to deploy your server.
UpCloud is a part Microsoft License Mobility Program and Authorised Mobility Partner. This allows you to migrate existing workloads to UpCloud without any license hassle!

Brought up another UpCloud server & activated the most troublesome site on it – significant database access speedup, looks like we have a winner!
As far as I see, UpCloud’s new DC in Helsinki is SO GOOD. It’s surely lovely. 🙂
New! Welcome to a brand new UpCloud
