About Scaleway

Scaleway is a database management software designed to help businesses of all sizes create and handle cloud computing infrastructure.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Reasons for Switching to Scaleway

Much cheaper than alternative products.
