ZURICH, SWITZERLAND - December 20, 2012
What: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is the fastest-growing segment of the $109 billion public cloud services market, according to Gartner. So, naturally, more and more companies will soon be migrating their services to take advantage of the public cloud's flexibility, accessibility and scalability. But, in choosing an IaaS provider, it's crucial to understand what platform is best for each unique business case, as not all clouds are created equal.
With this in mind, CloudSigma released a whitepaper today, CloudSigma And Its Flexible, Elastic and Transparent Cloud IaaS, comparing several of today's top public cloud IaaS providers with regards to their flexibility, customizability and transparency to help companies make the right public cloud choice for their business.
Why: Flexibility has been cited as the most important aspect of the public cloud by 57 percent of industry experts, according to a recent North Bridge Venture Partners survey. And, CloudSigma's uniquely customer-centric, public cloud IaaS platform is among the most flexible on the market today. Customers can easily provision resources as needed without the McDonald's-esque small, medium and large approach of other providers, like Amazon.
Most cloud providers don't allow users to configure the exact amount of RAM, CPU and storage they need, or deploy whatever software, applications or operating systems they like. So, it's important for companies to recognize the most customizable public clouds available to suit their individual needs, without breaking the bank.
By selecting a pay-as-you-go system, based on resource utilization instead of time or package bundle, customers can easily and cost-effectively scale their compute resources in a public cloud without risks of over- or under-provisioning. What's more, by making it all transparent through a simple interface, customers can rest assured that their deployments, resource utilization and billing are in line with their business objectives and budgets.
Who: Written by David Strom, a leading expert on networking and Internet communications, this white paper will benefit organizations looking to obtain a thorough understanding of various IaaS solutions, including the customer-centric mindset behind one of the most innovative providers on the market.
When: CloudSigma executives are available immediately to discuss what sets its IaaS solution apart from other providers, allowing for a smoother, more cost-effective transition to the cloud.
Where: The whitepaper is now available for download on CloudSigma's website.
CloudSigma is a 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, storage, 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.
With infrastructure in Interxion's European Cloud Hubs and SwitchNap's Las Vegas data center campus, CloudSigma selects the highest-quality facilities to support its innovative infrastructure. CloudSigma is increasingly being recognized for its advancement of the cloud IaaS industry and was chosen as one of Europe's top 25 cloud companies in 2010.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...
