    Scaleway: ARMv8-2GB agora com 4 cores dedicados - 50GB SSD 200Mbps 3 euros - FR/NL

    We're glad to announce bigger, more powerful, variants of our ARM64 lineup.

    For the last couple of years we positioned ourselves as the pioneer of ARM hosting. We continue today to provide an alternative solution to classic X86 instances with the introduction of bigger ARM servers in the cloud. With our new variants, we're now offering a solution to large workloads at scale, and at a competitive price thanks to our optimised ARMv8 SoCs.

    Massive Core Count Increase

    Since the launch of our new ARMv8 servers, part of our users were unsure about which server they should use for their application.

    To help you in your choice, we've decided to provide 2 additional cores for the same price on our two first variants:

    • The ARM64-2GB gets 4 cores instead of 2, a 100% core count increase
    • The ARM64-4GB gets 6 cores instead of 4, a 50% core count increase

    All of this for the exact same price as before. Basically, if you're application is able tu use multiple cores, you will get almost a 100% performance increase on our ARM64-2GB server.

    At €2.99 per month, the ARM64-2GB variant is for this price clearly the most powerful server we have and probably the most powerful on the market.

    If you need the additional CPU power, go ahead pick an ARM64 server and don't be afraid to be part of the market disruption!

    For existing customers, your cloud server configuration will be upgraded after a hard reboot or a stop/start sequence.

    ARM64 Images

    Since the initial release of our ARM64 servers, Docker and CentOS on Scaleway have been highly requested by the ARM community.

    We're pleased to announce Docker and CentOS are now available for ARM64 servers!

    Keep in mind that you need to use ARM64 Docker Images. If you try to use an x86 image, Docker will raise an error. A good source for ARM64 images is the arm64v8 repository of the dockerhub.

    High Core Count Variants

    Our new ARM64 variants provide an incredible amount of CPU power for users who need it.

    We have 4 new variants, with up to 64 cores and 128GB of DDR4 ECC RAM:

    ARM64-16GB ARM64-32GB ARM64-64GB ARM64-128GB
    Cores 16 32 48 64
    RAM 16GB 32GB 64GB 128GB
    SSD 400GB 600GB 800GB 1000GB
    Bandwidth 500Mbit/s 500Mbit/s 1000Mbit/s 1000Mbit/s
    Hourly price €0.07 €0.14 €0.28 €0.56
    Monthly price €34.99 €69.99 €139.99 €279.99

    These cloud servers are backed by Cavium ThunderX SoCs, high end processors designed for the cloud, and DDR4 ECC memory. They come with up to 1 Gbit/s of internet bandwidth with unlimited transfer. There is no additional bandwidth fee. As all our cloud server, the new ARMv8 servers are billed by the hour.

    Our new ARM64 lineup proves ARM SoCs are not tied IoT and Smartphones: ARM is a true alternative for the server market with solution for small and large workloads.

    The servers are available now in Paris and Amsterdam!

    The ARM64 lineup is flagged as a preview as we're still deploying nodes to handle large scale deployments.

    Scaleway doubles down on ARM-based cloud servers

    Romain Dillet
    June 22, 2017

    liad’s cloud hosting division Scaleway has been betting on ARM chipsets for years because they believe the future of hosting is going to be based on ARM’s processor architecture. The company just launched more powerful ARMv8 options and added more cores to its cheapest options.

    Back in April, Scaleway launched 64-bit ARM-based virtual servers thanks to Cavium ThunderX systems-on-a-chip. And the most affordable option is crazy cheap. For €2.99 per month ($3.30), you could get 2 ARMv8 cores and 2GB of RAM, 50GB of SSD with unlimited bandwidth at 200Mbit/s.

    With today’s update, Scaleway is doubling the number of cores on this option — you now get 4 cores instead of 2, making it quite competitive with entry-level virtual private servers on DigitalOcean or Linode. The company told me that it could be the best compute-to-price ratio on the market. For €5.99, you now get 6 cores and 4GB of RAM.

    And Scaleway also thinks you should be using ARM-based servers for your demanding tasks, as well. You can now get up to 64 cores and up to 128GB of RAM. This beefy option is quite expensive, at €279.99 per month, but Scaleway also added a bunch of intermediary options with 16, 32 or 48 cores.

    My main complaint remains the same. Scaleway currently has two data centers in Paris and Amsterdam. The company needs to think about opening up new offerings in Asia and the U.S. if it wants to become a serious contender in the highly competitive cloud hosting market.

    Discos adicionais

    1. A configuração 2GB RAM 4 cores (€2.99/mo | €0.006/hour) está limitada em 50GB -- não permite acréscimo de discos.

    2. A configuração 4GB RAM 6 cores (€5.99/mo | €0.012/hour) inclui um volume adicional de 50GB (total 100GB em 2 discos). Esse volume não pode ser aumentado e não é permitido acréscimo de discos.

    Provavelmente descobriram que 50GB SSD por €1/mo não é viável (ex: a Vultr cobra US$1/10GB). Daí a limitar o cliente é outra estória. A suposta concorrência não tem essa burrice, mas talvez a Scaleway seja apenas um playground.
