Why Scaleway?

The world of cloud computing is vast and ever-changing, with new players emerging all the time. One such player that has been gaining a lot of traction in recent years is Scaleway. Founded in 2015 by Xavier Niel, Scaleway is a cloud provider that offers a wide range of services designed to meet the needs of businesses of all sizes.

With data centers across Europe, Scaleway's offerings include compute instances, object storage, managed databases, and Kubernetes clusters. One of the standout features of Scaleway is that it offers both ARM and x86 architecture servers, allowing users to choose the architecture that best suits their needs and budget.

Scaleway is of the opinion that despite Europe's rich history and cultural diversity, it lags behind other continents when it comes to technology and innovation. They argue that Europe needs to focus on data sovereignty to address this problem, and proposes a multi-cloud approach to rebalance the cloud market of which they are a key player.

Komiser now integrates with Scaleway, providing users with an even more comprehensive cloud management experience. With this integration, users can track their Scaleway resources, uncover hidden costs, and make sure no resource go unnoticed.
