This hoster is a joke. I was about to migrate a few instances to them, when they shut down everything for a "manual review". Had to recover everything from a backup because they were not able to enable my account for 3 days. Verification documents were sent right away.

Cheap but extremely unreliable

Service used: Cloud
As I'm writing this review my ARM instance has been down for 34 hours straight and counting. The hypervisor stopped responding and seems like they have no idea whatsoever what to do with it.
It's cheap, but you get what you paid for - a service that you can't rely on at all.

Expert Overview

Easily Scaleable Hosting Solutions

Scaleway is a high quality hosting and data storage company.  They use cloud based technology to help provide great user experiences for all their customers.  One of the things they are best known for is the fact that they can add and configure resources in just seconds to any hosting package you happen to need.  This is great for growing sites or companies that are looking to keep up with the heavy demand of their customers.

They use bare metal servers with solid state drives for the fastest response times possible.  They also allow you to be billed either monthly or hourly, which is a good option for certain types of businesses that don't really need 24/7 service.  While all their packages use cloud hosting, they do offer dedicated servers and VPS solutions to help make it easier to understand.

Overall this is an excellent hosting provider that has high end hosting solutions and much more for any company looking for a great experience.

Uptime & Reliability

Excellent Reliability for Hosting & Storage

When using this company for hosting you will have a 99.9% uptime guarantee, which is in line with industry averages.  In almost all cases, however, the uptime is likely to be much higher than that.  They use solid state drives, which adds to the stability of their hosting.  In addition they use high quality cloud technologies to further minimize any down time. No matter what hosting package you choose, or what type of data storage you need, this company will have it up and available for you at all times.


Lots of Impressive Features

Competitive Pricing

The price points with this company are all quite reasonable.  You can start out as low as 2.99 Euros per month while still getting 4 dedicated ARM cores, 2 gigs of memory, 50 gigs of RAM and more.  The prices then go up from there to 23.99 per month for higher end packages.  No matter which package you want, you'll be more than satisfied with the overall level of hosting or data storage you are able to get.

Setting up an account with this company is quite easy.  Once you have everything established you can get in to your control panel and make changes or updates as needed.  Overall everything is quite simple to use, which is great for most users.  Their customer service and technical support staff are all very friendly and will help you to get whatever you need if you are running into trouble or having questions.
