Feature Value Comment
UI Friendliness 
  • Full featured, easy to use.
  • Expect to see Italian sentences peppered through the UI, some emails are sent in Italian too. The important information is still in English.
  • 3 separate sets of credentials are needed to login to the customer area, Aruba Cloud (your cloud server admin ui) and support.
Quality of Service 
  • Very high network traffic limit: 12TB.
  • Cloud server creation took 3 minutes.
  • Hourly billing only on Cloud Pro plans.
