My experience with Scaleway

Pros

Ease of use when it comes to setup, scaling and installation, also the wide image library.

Cons

Network stability is one of the biggest issues I've had over the years of being a Scaleway customer, but I've seen it greatly improve over the last few months.

It is possible to grow with low costs

In my case I use scaleway to instantiate applications and hostings. By having low costs, I have been able to grow without having to invest large amounts of money, and feeling supported as the service has always been excellent.

Pros

I have used various VPS services and scaleway has fair instances that allow small businesses to grow. The console is excellent, it allows the customization of what is just and necessary. It has helped me to be able to increase my sales without having an excessive cost.

Cons

I think it would be nice to have databases at a slightly lower cost, for general use.

Scaleway VPS

Used Daily for 2+ years
Reviewed on 2020/09/23
Review Source: Capterra

From ordering to vps provisioning, everything is automized. Their customer service is also nice and friendly.

Pros

A all-in-one solution for server admins: high-quality vps with the lowest possible price, flexible IPs, free internal networking, S3 compatible object storage - combination of these can ease the development process significantly. ON top of these, I like their dedicated and free firewall where you can define custom rules based on port ranges and also IP ranges.

Cons

Previously, the dev-s server was very cheap. Now, due to increased R&D cost of Scaleway, this price became almost double which is understandable. But it would be nice if Scaleway provides a cheaper solution like it has before, maybe with a lower server configuration i.e. 1GB RAM or 512M RAM and 1 processor etc. I also want to see live server load for the latest 7-10 days minimum without installing any third-party software.

Reliable and inexpensive server farm, with excellent service

Overall, today I set up servers only on Scaleway.
The service and prices are excellent. And the operation.

Highly recommend :)

Pros

My favorite thing is that there is excellent deployment ease, including in the API, and that the prices are excellent + per hour
If you did not use, you did not pay.
That it's really comfortable for software developers who want to test and try all sorts of options without committing too much.
In addition, they have a variety of complementary services, like their S3 service, physical servers, and more
I must also mention their built-in firewall.

The attacks are stopped even before reaching the server (of course the server has extra protection, but it helps that it is stopped before) and it is really comfortable and excellent.

Cons

Unfortunately, there is no option to build a server from ISO.
And also lacks the option of installing a Windows server, which is really important sometimes.
Plus, it would have been very nice if it was possible to increase the main HD instead of connecting an external HD

Reliable Hosting for Cheap

Used Daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

Scaleway is a brilliant hosting platform for small hobbyist developers such as myself. It's super cheap and reliable.

Pros

Insanely cheap, it's much cheaper than competitors' hosting. Very reliable, have never had it go down on me except for one bug due to me mis-understanding an option. SSH key synchronisation between all instances is very useful.

Cons

I would prefer if the console was automatically setup, without needing to set a root password. This is not much of an issue though.

Great cloud solutions for small and larger business projects

Pros

Working with Scaleway has been a great experience for the last 4 years.

Flexible deployments, fast provisioning of all services and great customer service are really making a difference for my business.

Scaleway has recently accelerated its growth and you can see a lot of great innovations and new services being launched which are really exciting.

Cons

Some features were launched then suspended due to difficulties scaling the infrastructure.
A good example of this is Object storage that was taken away for a long time before recently coming back.

Pros

Scaleway offers great cloud services at a fantastic price. I have used their cloud servers and object storage, their services are reliable, performant and easy to use. I also like that they have a wide variety of services that integrate very well for a 100% cloud infrastructure. Their support team is also fast to respond and was always able to solve my issues.

Cons

The only con I can think about is their payment methods, which are a bit restrictive. Some prepaid cards do not work and they do not offer other payment gateways, such as PayPal.

Pros

Easy to self-provision services and with lower prices than the global competence.

Cons

For this last 3 years I've only faced issues with with instances being unresponsive three times, though this is an expected bevahiour in any cloud environment. Having Support team engaged provide a solution within few hours.

Pros

ARM instances were the reason I wanted to go with Scaleway. With more and more ARM-based devices rolling out, having service instances running on ARM architecture is a big plus for any company.

Cons

The interface has gone through a few iterations but they never seem to quite hit the right one.
I find it pretty difficult to navigate at this time.

Object Storage de qualité

Used Daily for 6-12 months
Reviewed on 2020/09/23
Review Source: Capterra

L’interface est très intuitive et il est facile de s’y retrouver. Les fonctionnalités sont en constante évolution et les tarifs sont très corrects pour la qualité fournie.

Pros

La facilité d’utilisation de leur solution d’object storage m’a permis de rapidement l’intégrer dans l’ensemble de mes projets.
Rapide et peu coûteux c’est un vrai plus pour stocker tous ses assets.

Cons

Il me manque la possibilité d’ajouter un nom de domaine ou un sous domaine avec un certificat TLS pour pouvoir servir directement mes assets sous un nom customisé.

Pros

Ce qui est le plus plaisant, c'est la rapidité de déploiement. En quelques clics, il est possible de déployer des applicatifs automatiquement.
De plus, l'écosystème Scaleway est très complet : quasi toutes les distributions sont disponibles et beaucoup d'applications pré-installées sont mises à disposition.

Cons

Un effort est à prévoir sur la durée de vie d'un produit. Certains produits sont supprimés de l'offre et deviennent obsolète sans possibilité de faire de migration.
Les tarifs ont tendance à augmenter légèrement, même si ils restent inférieurs à certains concurrents.
