Scaleway meets the need for flexible low-latency, and high availability storage solutions in CEE markets by making Block Storage available in Poland

Paris, December 16, 2020 – Scaleway, the fast-growing European public cloud services provider, continues to strengthen its Public Cloud offerings available in its Warsaw data center (pl-waw-1) to support growing demand in Central and Eastern Europe. The availability of Block Storage in pl-waw-1 marks a new step for users who will be able to host latency-critical applications and benefit from high redundancy in this region.

Since launching pl-waw-1 in Warsaw in September with instances and object storage, Scaleway is committed to rapidly providing all the standard services of its public cloud ecosystem to the CEE region. Block Storage is now available alongside the managed databases, Container Registry and Load balancer already on offer in Warsaw. Kapsule, Scaleway’s managed Kubernetes offering, which is very popular among developer communities, will be the next product to be launched by Scaleway in this region.

Block Storage, an ideal response to the need for ultra-secure, low-latency, high-volume storage
Companies, organisations and startups require high-performance and reliable solutions for their critical Big Data and Data Analytics projects, and for their applications which are extremely demanding in terms of storage and IOPS*. This is why Scaleway chose full SSD disks which guarantee 5,000 IOPS and flexible volumes. Thus, at any time, the storage space allocated to an instance is hot swappable through resizing or adding new Block Storage volumes – a virtual instance can attach up to 15 volumes with a maximum size of 10TB. Block Storage also comes with a 99.99% SLA – data is replicated 3 times to ensure integrity. The volumes are therefore highly available, and remain accessible, under all circumstances.
Block storage is offered via a simple pricing model, at €0.08 excl. VAT per GB per month, making it the best price/performance ratio on the market. In terms of user experience, creating a Block Storage volume takes only a few seconds from the Scaleway console, the CLI or by using a DevOps tool like Terraform.

A complete European alternative that makes sense
Scaleway enables its clients to control their infrastructures, platforms, and data. Scaleway is a sovereign provider** favoring openness and transparency. At pl-waw-1, as in its other availability zones, Scaleway offers generic and compatible products that enable clients to build multi-cloud architectures using standard technologies.
By positioning a strong offering on the Polish market before all other dominant cloud providers, Scaleway is the only supplier in the region to offer developer users and corporate customers a set of GDPR-compliant, reliable, innovative, flexible and fairly priced Public Cloud products.
