In VPSBenchmark's opinion

Feature Value Comment
UI Friendliness 

Very detailed admin UI, borderline complex but presented in a friendly way.

Customizable dashboard.

Quality of Service 

During the free trial period, the firewall settings are tight and block outbound ssh. Keep that in mind if you can't connect your UpCloud VM to external servers. Those restrictions are lifted after the first payment.

UpCloud Extra Services

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

Backups   Block Storage   Object Storage Load Balancer Floating Ips  
Teams   Datastores Serverless Ddos Protection
