Who is it for?
True flexibility: No fixed server sizes, unbundled resources that deliver your needs! State of the art networking: We know that a customer needs stability and speed, so this is what we offer. Super fast storage: Traditional hard drivers are slow and Solid State Drivers (SSD) are fast. We've gone all-in on SSD and the result is amazing. CloudSigma also provides Private deployment patching to public cloud, Hybrid deployment as well as a Networking-as-a-Service solution. Direct private patch/hybrid cloud capability CloudSigma’s unique private-patching technology was first introduced with the launch of CloudSigma 2.0 in mid-June and was a primary catalyst for Equinix’s subsequent partnership, announced in early July. With CloudSigma’s private-patching capabilities, customers can leverage the elasticity of public cloud with private IP connectivity only; all without performance sapping VPNs. CloudSigma’s ability to closely match customers’ private environments makes it an ideal choice for hybrid hosting. Firewalls-as-a-Service - advanced network policy management across all cloud locations With CloudSigma’s new network policies, customers are able to configure and constrain both inbound and outbound traffic while defining these policies in a simple fashion within the Web interface or directly over the API. The policies range from a single rule that blocks all external public IP traffic, to complex schemes that only allow connections to certain ports from a set of IPs. Network policies are saved then applied to one or more virtual servers as required. Furthermore, network policies can be reconfigured and re-applied to running servers without service disruption. We are also the first public IaaS provider to offer a cloud ecosystem for media professionals and media services consumers with free incoming data transfer, called Media Cloud Ecosystem. It has grown by 150% in the past 6 months which marks its relevance nowadays when media professional are in a great need of high-performance compute, storage and data transfer capabilities.
