cloudsigma 300x102 CloudSigma Launches Its Pure Cloud IaaS in the U.S.CloudSigma, the only international, pure-play Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider, today announced its launch into the U.S. at the Hosting and Cloud Transformation Summit after repeated requests from European and North American customers and prospects. Unlike current offerings, CloudSigma’s IaaS offering is a flexible, open platform where the customer is given complete control of their software and data with total transparency of service usage. Customers also benefit from access to a range of unbundled cloud resources, such as storage, CPU, RAM and bandwidth, which can be purchased and provisioned on a utility basis.

CloudSigma’s highly-available, flexible cloud servers and cloud hosting services are located in both Switch’s Las Vegas SuperNAP campus and Interxion’s European Cloud Hubs, giving customers access to the world’s largest end-user and business markets. With this launch, CloudSigma is well positioned to meet the IaaS requirements for companies wishing to deploy private, public or hybrid clouds in both North America and/or Europe. Customers benefit from being able to quickly provision infrastructure when required, which improves time-to-market and delivers on-demand applications and services to markets in an extremely agile manner.

“CloudSigma provides us with a great level of flexibility,” said Viktor Petersson, CEO, WireLoad, Inc. “Our email migration tool, YippieMove, requires us to scale from a dozen to hundreds of servers rapidly. This is more or less impossible to do with physical hardware. With CloudSigma’s platform however, we can both save money and offer a better product to our users.”

“The IaaS market is comprised of cloud providers that don’t want to disrupt their legacy business, making it impossible for them to offer a platform that gives customers complete control and flexibility,” said CloudSigma CEO Patrick Baillie. “We developed CloudSigma as a pure-play cloud IaaS platform to address that customer need directly and let companies pick and choose the exact resources necessary to support their business requirements. The end result is a freedom-through- technology IaaS approach that delivers unparalleled pricing options and performance, and gives customers flexibility and control over their data, billing and resources.”
