In VPSBenchmark's opinion

Feature Value Comment
UI Friendliness 

Clean and modern.

Quality of Service 
  • Excellent transparent FAQ at https://www.scaleway.com/faq/.
  • Authentication process is unclear: uploading an ssh key appears mandatory but is not mentioned during server creation. After creation, it's too late.
  • UI Console shell requires machine login and password making it useless since machines don't have passwords when they are created.

Scaleway Extra Services

In addition to features included in the VPS plan, Scaleway also offers the following services (possibly for a fee):

Backups   Block Storage   Object Storage Load Balancer Floating Ips
