Scaleway Provides Dedicated ARM Servers for 10 Euros per Month, 0.02 Euro per Hour

Orange Pi Development Boards

Earlier this year, Online Labs launched a beta hosting program using custom-designed C1 dedicated servers powered by Marvell Armada 370/XP quad core processor. The company has now launched a commercial service called Scaleway providing hosting service on these baremetal servers for 9.99 Euros per month, or 0.02 Euro per hour, as well as a “Infinite Storage” service with 1GB data for 0.02 Euros per month.

Rack with 18 C1 Servers

Here are the details of the 10 Euros plan:

  • Server based on Marvell Armada 370/XP quad core ARMv7 processor
  • Memory – 2GB Memory
  • Storage – 50GB SSD Disk
  • 1x Reserved public IPv4
  • 200Mbit/s – Unmetered bandwith
  • Operating Systems – Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, ArchLinux ARM. Docker supported.

That’s not a VPS, but a dedicated server. For reference, I currently pay around $20 per month (Linode) for a server with an Intel Xeon E5-2680 dual core processor with 2 GB RAM and 50 GB SSD storage, and 3 TB free monthly bandwidth to host this blog. The Intel processor should be much more powerful than the Marvel one, but depending on your application, it might be enough. Overall Scaleway offer appears to be a decent deals, especially if you just need a server for development, where you’ll be charged per hour, so If you use the server 50 hour in a month, you’d only pay 1 Euros.

There are also options for higher bandwidth (1Gbit/s), 99.95% / 99.99% guaranteed uptime, extra storage (up to 1TB), bandwidth protection, and more. A simple REST API is available with the code soon-to-be on github.

You can find out more and/or sign-up for the service on Scaleway website.

http://lowendbox.com/ often has some good vps deals. I wonder how dedicated ARM servers compare to VPSs?

Hello,
Scaleway VPS are ok for an ARM… low bandwidth.
Customer service, on the other hand is the worst i had until now.
It has been 3-4 months since i am struggling to remove my credit card information and personal data from their side.

Short story:
I got a VPS to test it out. I asked them about the price and they said it was free.
After 1 month i got a invoice ( 2 Euro or so)…. i asked them why tell it is free for testing if they bill the service at the end of the month. The answer was evasive so i asked them to quit the service.
I payed my bills and now i open a ticket each month to delete my data from their side ( that includes credit card details).
They say they will delete it … but you wont be able to delete the account and data.
Personally i don
t like to have my private and bank information stored without any means to delete it.
I don`t recommend their service. Worst customer experience until now.
Thank you
