ZURICH, May 2 — CloudSigma, an international, customer-centric, pure-cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider, today announced that it has been named a Cool Vendor in the Cool Vendors in the European Cloud Computing Market, 2013 report, authored by Gartner Research Director Gregor Petri, Gartner Research Director Tiny Haynes and Gartner Research Director Hanns Koehler-Kruener.
According to Gartner’s analysis, “Cloud computing in Europe is developing slower than in other parts of the world, especially North America, but this region is home to some bright spot vendors that warrant closer examination.” Gartner names CloudSigma’s IaaS offering as innovative, impactful and intriguing.
CloudSigma’s unique approach to IaaS has created one of the most flexible, customer-centric public cloud offerings on the market. With an open software layer and utility-based compute resources, CloudSigma’s customers are easily able to match their application requirements in a highly available and reliable environment, as Gartner notes in the report. CloudSigma also provides an environmentally-conscious approach to its public cloud by using the clean energy supply from Europe’s public grid, increasing equipment sharing and efficiency, and compensating remaining emissions through its myclimate project participation.
Gartner also recognized CloudSigma’s innovative approach to big data sets, particularly with regard to data-intensive industries like research science and media. As a supporting member of the Helix Nebula science initiative and creator of its own Media Services Ecosystem, CloudSigma is well placed to help quickly process high volumes of data in multi-enterprise scenarios. This is an increasing need as data volumes continue to escalate and companies need a high-performance environment capable of fostering greater collaboration and innovation.
“We are continuously innovating to build the most flexible and reliable public cloud platform on the market, and our inclusion in Gartner’s Cool Vendor report is great validation of our increasing recognition in both Europe and abroad,” said Robert Jenkins, CloudSigma CEO and co-founder. “As we continue to develop our platform and expand into new geographies, we are committed to maintaining the same level of quality service and innovation that our customers and industry leaders have come to expect.”
CloudSigma is a Swiss-based, pure-cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider that offers highly-available, flexible, enterprise-class cloud servers and cloud hosting solutions, both in Europe and the U.S. CloudSigma is the most customizable cloud provider on the market, giving customers full control over their cloud and eliminating restrictions on how users deploy their computing resources. With CloudSigma, customers can provision processing, SSD storage priced as magnetic, networks and other fundamental computing resources as they please, as well as easily deploy any operating system or application with full root/administrative access. The result is the highest-performing cloud at the most efficient price possible.
