UCclouds.com’s servers are housed in cutting-edge data centers located in Atlanta, Seattle, and London. The data centers are equipped with redundant internet connectivity, redundant cooling systems, and robust security systems for more reliability.

What’s more, they are Cisco UCS Blade servers equipped with Infiniband connection providing faster network connectivity.
UCclouds.com servers use NetApp data storage systems. The data storage comes with storage technologies such as deduplication, failover, and high availability datastore clustering to help you achieve your storage demands.

Pricing and Support
The prices of UCclouds.com hosting plans are pretty standard. They come with flexible billing cycles and clients can commit to a contract of at least one month. What’s more, the vendor promises discounts of up to 40% off the monthly fee when you commit to longer contracts. UCclouds.com offers a 100% uptime guarantee as well as a 100-day money-back guarantee.
Clients can contact UCclouds.com’s U.S. based customer support via telephone, email, or ticketing system. While the vendor claims to offer live chat support, the live chat icon on its website is invalid. Although it claims to offer 24/7/365 support as well, the reality is somewhat different. I opened a ticket and received an automated response, but the vendor never responded to my query.
UCclouds.com has a pretty detailed knowledge base that includes video tutorials. However, I encountered errors when I tried to open the videos.
