    No Debian 9 image, 2/10.

    Now that there's Linode for $5, what are they hoping to achieve being 2x more expensive? Or maybe they just forgot to maintain the service and keep plans competitive, same as forgot to add the Debian 9 image.

    With $10/mo you only get 2.5 months, that's not worth it bothering to sign up and enter your data.

    Still no SSH key support and also kernel fuckery, 1/10.

    Dunno what you mean, IIRC on Linode you can easily run your own kernel (unlike old DO or current Scaleway), now that it's KVM I believe there's not even the need to bother with pyGrub anymore.

  • They are the world's fastest cloud you know. Their price is expensive. So that must be true.

    Your account has now been created and your 72 hours of free trial has begun. You are now ready to deploy on the world's fastest cloud! To start deploying your cloud servers, please log in at https://my.upcloud.com

    Please note that your account is currently in trial mode, but all restrictions can easily be lifted by making a one-time transfer of $10 or more by visiting My Account -> Billing in your control panel. We will also give you an additional $10 on your first deposit!

    The trial mode restrictions are as following:

    • Cloud servers can only be accessed using SSH, RDP, HTTP or HTTPS protocols
    • Cloud servers are not allowed to send outgoing e-mails or to create outbound SSH/RDP connections
    • The internet connection is restricted to 100 Mbps (compared to 500 Mbps for non-trial accounts)
    • After your 72 hours free trial, your services will be deleted unless you make a one-time deposit of $10

    What a load of bollocks

    What a load of bollocks

    Mail1: "Hello Butters,

    Thank you for contacting UpCloud.

    I had been monitoring the sign ups and all new sign ups via that link has been given the $25 in credits.

    Are you having issues personally? Iā€™m thinking perhaps the users did not sign up via the link which placed them in our usual trial mode.
    Kind regards,
    Kelvin Tan"

    Mail 2: "I did additional tests to confirm, credits are still automatically credited upon sign up via the link."

    • do not prepay > 1 year and check for reviews/support
    • only use monthly from a provider operating < 1 year šŸ†
  • They have also the best SLA compensation for the price you pay

    From 5 minutes means that they have an SL of 100-5/(302460)*100%=99.988. Yet they claim 100%.

    Furthermore, looking at the rackspace SLA, it seems that if your vps is down for 20h, you get 100% of your monthly fee back. At upcloud that would be 1000 hours worth of payments (50*20h), aka 140% of what you paid for. Not all that big of a difference imo.

    Their SLA is good, yes, but not the be-all end-all. Digitalocean start paying out earlier (99.99% means 260 seconds downtime, slightly shorter than upcloud's 5 minutes), and elastichosts has 100x multiplier compared to upcloud's 50x.

    I like my uptime down low and my servers all hacked. Can see me droppin' twenty-fours with a router in the rack.
    Ya like ya Switch-Ports hot and ya servers all hacked. If ya pings real high and ya networks pitch black.

    but i can't find a 1CPU CORE, 1GB, 30GB SSD, 2TB TRANSFER instance at rackspace or elastichosts for 10 $ ;)
