What is the contract period?
With gridscale, you are using the most modern cloud computing from Germany without contractual obligations. You decide when and how long you use a service.
Does gridscale support IPv6?
You can operate all your cloud servers, whether Windows, Linux or BSD, with IPv6. Unlike conventional vendors, you can even use gridscale exclusively with IPv6. It’s your choice.
What traffic costs incur by using gridscale?
At gridscale, we distinguish between IPv6 and IPv4 traffic. While we allow a free volume of 2 TB per account per month and compute traffic which exceeds 5 cents per GB with IPv4, the use of IPv6 traffic is completely free. With that, we would like to underline the fact that we believe in the protocol of the future. We are looking forward to every project that is already on IPv6 today.
