Flexible Infrastructure Services, Hour Based Billing
UpCloud is a European cloud infrastructure provider that prides itself on world-class technology and pricing. Our customers are not bound by artificial restrictions and for example, server resources on instance amounts, memory and disk space can be adjusted freely.
As an UpCloud customer, you can also be sure that your servers are deployed fast. A typical Linux-server deployment is less than 60 seconds - a world record in its class!See next: High Performance
Excellent CPU- and IO-Performance 24/7
At UpCloud, we only sell dedicated server resources. Our customers can be sure that the server resources they have ordered offer consistently great performance, during the theoretical peak hours as well as the non-peak hours.
In addition, the storage system used in our service is truly unique: the whole system has been hand crafted with love. Our developers have focused greatly on the typical challenges and pitfalls in the cloud environment, such as scalability, random IO load and redundancy.See next: Reliable
A Completely Redundant and Self-Healing System, Backed Up by a 100% SLA Agreement
The infrastructure behind UpCloud is designed to be fully redundant. We have resolved redundancy issues, for example, by duplicating critical server, storage and network devices, and by using smart application-level load-sharing and fault-management algorithms as well as high-level data centres.
Additionally, our service has the most comprehensive SLA agreement in the market, so our customers can feel safe that the services they use will run smoothly 24/7 throughout the year. However, should there be any unplanned interruptions to our service, we shall reimburse fifty times the level of service fees for the duration.See next: Easy to Manage
Easy to Use, But With Lots of Features
Everything can be controlled through the UpCloud Control Panel. With the Control Panel, you can manage server resources, such as deploying servers, scaling, and changing network and storage settings, in a simple and effortless way. The tool also enables you to view server statistics, as well as server operation and invoicing reports. We also have apps for iPhone and Android platforms so you have quick control even when you are on the road. More demanding management solutions can be created through our API.See next: Affordable
Pay As You Go With Competitive Prices
We only charge you for actual use, based on hourly billing. Whether you need ten servers for the long term or just one for four hours, we've got it covered! Regardless of the lifetime of the server, your invoicing reports will confirm that we have billed you just for the resources you have used.

The Dashboard is fully modular and the view is editable, which can be set to include, for instance, various quick-functions and monitoring and statistical functions.
The server listing includes all servers under the account as well as the most typical configuration and IP address details. The view also enables you to shut down, start or restart a server or multiple servers.
Deploying a New Server
Deploying a server has never been this fast! Choose the operating system you want to use, your configuration preferences, give your server a name and choose its geographical location. Once you have made your choices, a typical Linux server, for example, will be up and running in less than 30 seconds!
A Single Server Management View
The management view is a comprehensive tool for server management. Among other things, the view allows you to restart a server, open a console connection, change server parameters, determine the firewall settings and view server statistics.
Server Migration Between Different Service Areas
UpCloud is one big cloud - geographical boundaries are not a limit if you want to duplicate or migrate your server, even to a different country! This kind of flexibility has never been seen before!
Account Billing Management
Service fees are billed through the dedicated UpCloud Billing Management system. You can easily monitor the status of your account and invoices through User Management. Transferring funds to the account is quick, easy and safe by using our carefully selected payment providers.
Latest from the blog
UpCloud lowered its prices in London dramatically earlier this month and we wanted to take the opportunity to highlight how competitive those prices actually are. Both Google and Amazon Web Services announced price reductions this week in an attempt to maintain their image of price leadership.
In the tables below, we have compared UpCloud’s pricing to first Amazon Web Services (AWS) and then to Google. For clarity’s sake we have omitted the instance specifications from the table, but you can dive into those on Amazon’s website or on Google’s Cloud Engine website. UpCloud can match configurations from both companies as our customers are able to freely define their server resources.
Amazon Web Services
General purpose (Current Generation with SSD storage), Ireland
|Instance||€/30 days (AWS)||€/30 days (UC)||UpCloud’s advantage, €|
* UpCloud’s Instance with 10GB of SSD, AWS with 4GB.
You can clearly see that especially with regards to the high performance servers, UpCloud’s price advantage is clear. We really do stand behind our words in offering high performance, redundant, cloud computing at a very attractive price. It is always worth diving deeper into the prices instead of comparing the smaller configurations available, as Amazon Web Services and Google really seem to price their larger instances at higher premiums.
Amazon Web Services
General purpose (Previous Generation with HDD storage), Ireland
|Instance||€/30 days (AWS)||€/30 days (UC)||UpCloud’s advantage, €|
When compared with HDD storage, UpCloud’s advantage isn’t as high as in comparing servers with SSD storage. However, it has to be remembered that with UpCloud, your data is more securely stored. Amazon Web Services outlines for example that your data is lost for good if the drive attached fails, or you stop the EBS backed instance or terminate it. We believe no customer should risk their data with such technology.
At UpCloud your data is always stored on two separate storage backends which are constantly synchronised. Therefore if your server experiences a drive failure, an automatic failover takes place and your server continues to serve content happily. Oh, and these storage backends are further RAID-secured to add another layer of redundancy.
Google Cloud Platform – Compute Engine,
Standard Instance types
|Instance||€/30 days (Google)||€/30 days (UC)||UpCloud’s advantage, €|
Note: All UpCloud instances include at least 10GB of HDD storage. Google’s instances do not include storage. Google’s pricing does not include sustained use discounts.
Google comes into the game with slightly larger instances at the top end, however the price advantage for UpCloud is clear. At the high end, you can have double the capacity at UpCloud what you can have at Google.
It is true that both Google and Amazon Web Services offer reduced prices for those who commit to longer terms. We believe this is a dramatic step back from one of the core benefits of using cloud computing – flexibility. You should be able to run your servers for a matter of few hours or a month and be always sure that you get an attractive price, without having to jump through hoops to achieve those prices. At UpCloud, we only have one price and you always pay for what you use.
Notes on calculations:
All prices are in euros and calculated with a conversion rate of 1 USD=0.7255 euros. Comparison done on 27th of March, 2014. UpCloud’s server prices include CPU, memory, storage and IP-address pricing. 30 days equals to 720 hours of runtime.
