Servers Introduction


Welcome to SpinUp Cloud Servers! Whether you’re starting your first blog, getting your business website off the ground, or performing intense scientific calculations, SpinUp has a flavor and size to fit your needs!

Use cases for Cloud Servers

If you’re new to cloud hosting, here are a few popular use cases for how Cloud Servers can best support your business.

  • Web applications made simple and scalable. Create a web application that is scaled to your exact needs, and runs on the exact specs that you designate. Unlike generic site hosting, you won’t be locked into any specific software versions or code languages, and can perform quick and easy horizontal scaling from your control panel to handle increased load.

  • Quickly deploy and manage development environments. Create development Cloud Servers from a number of popular operating systems and distributions, and manage your code environments through features such as Cloud Server Snapshots and account projects, to keep your work organized and streamlined.

  • Batch processing on demand. Cloud Servers are ideal for running batch processing workloads – create as many worker nodes as you need and only pay for the time you need them.

Cloud Servers features

  • Reliable. Fully redundant networking and power.

  • Flexible. Your choice of sizes and Operating System (OS) flavors, including several Linux® variants, and Microsoft® Windows®.
