Launching new data centres, networking and storage technologies
Despite the global challenges, we at UpCloud continued operations as normal to provide our customers with many new features and services throughout the year.
In 2020, we were proud to open three new data centres, US-NYC1 in New York, the US as well as ES-MAD1 in Madrid, Spain and PL-WAW1 in Warsaw, Poland.
We launched our brand new storage solution, UpCloud Object Storage! It had been one of our most frequently requested features and highlights our dedication to listening to our customers.
Our networking also saw substantial updates. We lowered our outbound transfer pricing considerably to just $0.01 per GB. Furthermore, we unveiled a new feature to bundle transfer quotas afforded by our public cloud services into a single account-wide Network Transfer Pool.
We also launched our backups to new heights by making them easier than ever before. The introduction of Simple Backup enabled our customers to simply choose their preferred backup schedule with minimal maintenance.
Migrating servers from on-premise or another cloud provider should be as efficient as possible. To make the migration easier, we launched UpCloud Storage Import to allow customers to bring in data securely over the internet.
To further empower our customers using automation, we launched the UpCloud Metadata service which can be of great help when bootstrapping new services.
Last but not least, we launched a new product for our SDN Private Networks in the form of a gateway SDN Router. It can be used to join any number of SDN Private Networks within a data centre to quickly and easily join parts of the customers’ services.
