CloudSigma Joins Equinix Cloud Exchange

CloudSigma, a public cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider with advanced hybrid hosting solutions, has joined the Equinix Cloud Exchange. Equinix’s Silicon Valley SV5 data center is the initial Cloud Exchange connection point for CloudSigma.

CloudSigma, which operates both in Europe and the U.S., gains access to private networking services, and the ability to easily interconnect with service providers and enterprises stationed on the Cloud Exchange.

“By providing enterprises with direct, private access to our public cloud, we are able to significantly enhance performance and security, while capitalizing on Equinix’s global footprint. We are actively expanding our partnership with Equinix across new geographies and joining the Equinix Cloud Exchange will enable us to extend our reach even further. Now, more enterprises and network service providers will be able to use our services in an even easier and cost-effective way,” stated Robert Jenkins, CEO, CloudSigma.

The Equinix Cloud Exchange is currently available in 17 markets globally – Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Silicon Valley, Washington D.C., New York, Toronto, Seattle, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Dallas, Chicago, London, Paris, Amsterdam and Frankfurt – with plans to expand to 19 markets by the end of 2014.

CloudSigma Expands in U.S.

CloudSigma, the Switzerland-based provider of pure-cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Services (IaaS), has expanded its public cloud to a second U.S. location. In addition to its Las Vegas cloud at SwitchNAP, CloudSigma’s public cloud is now also available at Equinix’s DC6 International Business Exchange (IBX) in Washington D.C.

CloudSigma said its dual-site U.S. hosting solution allows customers can now more easily geo-balance workloads across multiple data centers, thereby keeping their data and mission-critical applications accessible in the event of a disaster or a system outage. For instance, customers already housing their data in CloudSigma’s Las Vegas-based cloud can now simply fail over to its East Coast location or vice versa.

CloudSigma Cuts its Cloud Compute Prices

CloudSigma, the Switzerland-based provider of pure-cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Services (IaaS), is dropping its compute pricing for customers to reflect the efficiency gains from its recent public cloud 2.0 upgrade.  Specifically, CloudSigma’s RAM pricing is being reduced by 20 percent and its CPU pricing is decreasing by 15 percent across all locations for both subscription and pay-as-you-go burst pricing.

“Recently, there’s been criticism over cloud providers’ seeming ‘race to the bottom’ as more and more industry players slash prices to compete with Amazon,” said Robert Jenkins, CloudSigma CEO. “But, if you look at where AWS started, their price drops have not been in line with Moore’s Law, in terms of increasing compute performance and falling hardware costs, so their margin has actually gone up since 2006. Rather than compete via underlying hardware costs, our custom stack allows us to use innovation to compete in the market. We deliver higher levels of performance on the same hardware, as compared to other providers; so we don’t worry about slashing prices based on the competition, just based on the efficiency gains of our technology.”
