UpCloud Review: Great Performance and Potential

They’ve won several recent benchmarks done by sysadmins like CentminMod due to using only NVMe SSD disks and high quality hardware. This is easier for them to offer, however, because they are a smaller company with less datacenter options than other players. We’ve asked them directly about their policies and they confirmed that all customers regardless of location must abide by the GDPR since their company is based in Finland. Their policies on content and free speech are a bit vague and unestablished, but generally speaking their team stated that they would only censor content or ask customers to “leave” if they received a direct complaint via the Finnish police. While the hardware seems impressive, their policies and relationship with European laws are probably not the best choice for some companies around the world.
