Scaleway Upcoming pricing changes as of January 1, 2022 | All Dedibox Servers +€1/month
Upcoming pricing changes
as of January 1, 2022
Scaleway regularly updates its pricing to reflect the ever-changing nature of the market, and we are writing to inform you of a price increase on certain products and services.
These changes will be effective as of January 1, 2022, and will be automatically applied to all affected services active on that date.
Price increases related to energy costs
We are sure that you have noticed that energy costs have risen sharply in recent years. In the last 12 months, the price of electricity on the market has increased fivefold, and this obviously has a significant impact on our business model.
Evolution of electricity spot pricing
For example, for a server consuming 50W, the cost in electricity per month has increased from €1.44 to €7.20, that is to say an additional cost of +€5,76 per month. We have absorbed this increase in costs into our margin as far as possible, but it has become necessary to integrate part of this increase into our fees.
From January 1, 2022, all Dedibox servers will see their monthly price increase by €1/month. This increase will be applied to current and future orders.
Product Price change as of 01/01/2022
All Dedibox servers +€1/month
Price increases related to Microsoft license costs
As for the past 8 years, Microsoft has taken the unilateral decision to increase the prices of its SPLA Windows Server licenses by 10%, and we therefore need to adjust our pricing accordingly.
Microsoft's complex licensing policy prohibits us from offering you anything other than monthly SPLA licenses on your servers, but rest assured that Scaleway is fighting a constant battle to offer you the best of the Microsoft ecosystem under fair conditions.
This new pricing will be applied to all versions of Windows Server 2016, 2019 and 2022. Please see the below table for the new monthly prices (excluding VAT) based on numbers of CPUs and Cores.
