About Scaleway

Scaleway is a database management software designed to help businesses of all sizes create and handle cloud computing infrastructure. It enables software developers to deploy virtual machine (VM) instances, define network access rules, track the performance of applications, and monitor CPU or bandwidth usage, disk activity, and website visitors on a unified platform.

IT teams can utilize the object storage module to store a variety of encrypted and unstructured data such as photos, videos, text files, web pages, documents, and more across multiple geographical locations. Administrators can use the application to maintain databases, create backup, and automatically resolve database instance issues in real-time. Scaleway also lets IT professionals create private networks and set up health checks to monitor the performance of backend servers.

Using Scaleway’s load balancing functionality, organizations can distribute website traffic across multiple platforms such as Amazon Web Services, Digital Ocean, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, OVHcloud, and more. Other features include data archiving, user control, data storage management, graphical charts, automated notifications, and analytics.

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

While there is value for money, they lose your data at the drop of a hat.

Cons

Rebooted my server to find that all my data had been lost with no way to recover. This happened twice.

My experience with Scaleway

Reviewed on 2020/09/22

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.

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.
