Why UpCloud? Let us give you 3 simple reasons.

1. UpCloud is faster. Much faster.

We built a completely new type of storage backend, which we aptly named MaxIOPS. It's built to give you the best I/O performance per dollar and gives you up to 2x performance compared to enterprise-grade SSD.

2. Incredible 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 is 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.

3. Unrivaled resource management

With AWS EC2's fixed instance types, you're locked to the resource limits that's provided by the specific instance type. Should you need to add additional CPU cores, but are happy with the amount of memory? Too bad!

You'll have to upgrade to the next available instance type, significantly adding to your costs as you are paying for resources you don't actually require. Without the possibility of configuring each resources independently, you will never be in complete control.

With UpCloud, you get the best of both worlds. Each cloud server can be deployed using a preconfigured (discounted) plan or with fully customized resources, according to your budget and requirements. You can even switch between plans and custom configurations whenever you want!
