CloudSigma: Innovative Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) through high availability, flexible cloud servers and cloud hosting Europe and the US.

CloudSigma is an highly innovative Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider based in Zurich, Switzerland. CloudSigma was founded to meet the growing need for a pure IaaS that places little or no restrictions on how its users deploy their computing resources. CloudSigma has been chosen as one of the top 25 European cloud companies for 2010.

The founders of CloudSigma were frustrated with the current market offerings which required users to jump through hoops to migrate their current server setups to the cloud. Further, many other IaaS offerings placed restrictions on the operating systems that could be used, the size of servers available and more; servers that disappear when stopped, storage that wasn’t persistent etc. The CloudSigma product was developed to directly address these issues.

“We are 100% focused on delivering world class computing performance and service to our customers in a flexible and straightforward manner. Choosing CloudSigma as your cloud hosting partner means choosing a company that genuinely cares about its working relationships. We view our role very much a partnership, providing a solid foundation on which our customers build out their computing infrastructure and businesses over time. Having a valued partner who understands your business and is able to assist and support when needed is critical.”

Above all, CloudSigma aims to make its service accessible to all. Very technical users will find the full featured API easy to use and automate along with the greater freedom our system affords them. Less technically inclined users will find the web interface intuitive and the CloudSigma community an invaluable resource in exploring cloud computing further.

The founders of CloudSigma chose Switzerland as a location due to the following key advantages:

  • Excellent networking connectivity to all of Europe and the rest of the world
  • One of the world’s most reliable and clean electricity grids (95% green electrical generation)
  • A highly developed and respected legal framework for privacy and data protection
  • A multi-lingual local environment
  • Zurich as a vibrant and rapidly growing technology hub

The CloudSigma cloud is housed in the Interxion data centre in Glattbrugg near Zurich. Interxion’s data centre is the carrier neutral location of choice for high end data hosting in Switzerland. CloudSigma’s headquarters are located at the Interxion data centre also enabling our engineers to gain immediate physical access to our cloud.
