At UpCloud we let you to choose what fits you 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
shutdown a freely scalable cloud server, you only pay for the reserved storage and IP-addresses.

Price / performance ratio
Being the defacto industry leader like AWS means that they don’t need to compete on pricing, which in turn means that you as a customer are paying a premium for the same level of performance as with many other cloud providers. So while you can get the
same performance with AWS EC2 as with UpCloud, you will often have to pay more than twice as much for it.
