Just received this email with above subject in our inbox. In summary :
As of December 1 st, 2020, our C2 and ARM64 Instances will reach their end-of-life. In addition, their support will end on July 1st, 2020.
This is preposterous !
We been with Scaleway for years since its inception and build lots of services over the years on these class of Servers. Since last 6 months, mysteriously we have been noticing these C2x (only) servers having intermittent loss of connectivity with the network storage; which necessitates a reboot/hard reboot. Multiple tickets to Scaleway technicians only coolly state they are aware of this issue - however fail to answer how come this issue was not occurring since the 2 years we were using these instances without any issues !
I believe Scaleway is not forthcoming on the real intent of sunsetting these servers - especially the dedicated C2x ones. The ARMs ones we have never have any issues since years!! Do you want us to again spent hundreds of hours rebuilding our architecture around those 3x times expensive new servers ( for similar dedicated servers specs ) before Dec 2020 - and hoping to be on our own since you have said no support on them past June 2020 - while we continuing paying you folks for them every month till your take it away !!!
This is totally unacceptable and unethical business practise, Scaleway !
I wish to know the feedback from the other clients on the same boat as us here.
