OK cloud
Korial K.,

Nice cloud, with pretty swift support.
Sadly lacking quite a bunch of functionality but most of them are currently in alpha or beta.
Should start to be production ready soon-ish
A few issues
Francoise Bencke,
8.0
The platform is great. However, there is an issue with my cdn and my website and after 48 hours it still has not been resolved. I am aware that I have a standard support package but this should be part of the package as it is... More from their end. One other issue which I was not aware when I decided to go with them is that they are using a late version of PHP. Not great for speed. You have to be on the next suppôt level, to be upgraded at a cost of £100 support for at least 6 months. Not happy right now. Less

Was a good hoster, not anymore
Max Koopman,
2.0
Was a client for 5 years with this company and never had issues. After 5 years they claimed that my creditcard was not working. Contacted my bank and they told me that the issue was at their payment provider. Sent a total of ... More 6 emails to the support desk to get this issue fixed. No response whatsoever, even though I replied to their email with the payment error.
After this they blocked my account and took my servers offline.
After this they claimed that they cannot access the mailbox support@scaleway.net. After this they called me a liar saying that they do not use this emailaddress. It's just terrible. I know they are a cheap hoster but it's better to find one that has good support and where you can actually fix these issues before they become a problem.

I could not describe a more useless understanding that this company members have of Western customers and practises.
If you want our bucks give us the service we require.
Tired of this nomadic tax havean located and low cos... More t labors greedy business model.
Technically they are just a reseller.
