Workshare Chooses CloudSigma to Enhance Product Development Process

CloudSigma's Flexible Pricing, Green Hosting Initiatives and High-Availability Proves Ideal for Workshare's Application Testing and Development

Palo Alto, Calif - May 15, 2014 - CloudSigma, a public cloud IaaS provider with advanced hybrid hosting solutions, today announced that Workshare, a provider of secure enterprise collaboration applications, has chosen CloudSigma's platform to host its application testing and development environment. By leveraging CloudSigma's highly available and energy-efficient public cloud environment, scalable resources, and flexible pricing for application testing, Workshare can benchmark the customer experience for new services or features before they're officially rolled out to customers, in the most sustainable way possible.

To ensure innovation is a core part of Workshare's product development, the company needed a cloud provider with a scalable, elastic environment like CloudSigma's. With this, new applications and functionality can be quickly developed and brought to market, ensuring Workshare is constantly meeting customers' changing business collaboration needs. Additionally, with the ability to reserve fixed capacity and burst as needed, CloudSigma allows Workshare to test the performance of its applications in the most scalable, cost effective way possible without risking costly Virtual Machine overprovisioning from pre-defined bundles, as required by some other providers.

"CloudSigma is highly elastic, allowing us to easily scale up and down as needed so we can provision the exact capacity required of our testing environment," commented Ali Moinuddin, CMO, Workshare. "CloudSigma enables us to process data quickly, while saving money on resources we aren't using."

Workshare is leveraging CloudSigma's state-of-the-art infrastructure for testing and development, combined with its resource provisioning on a pay-as-you-go basis. As a result of these continued cost savings, Workshare has migrated some of its own internal IT systems into CloudSigma's environment, reaping the benefits of its well-balanced price/performance and efficient resource utilization.

"The bottom line is that Workshare's infrastructure and services have to be available 24x7 and regular testing and development is what guarantees this," said Robert Jenkins, CEO, CloudSigma. "We are able to provide an unmatched level of service, along with a neutral platform that is very open, allowing Workshare to test their software stack unmodified within our cloud. As a result, Workshare can continue to deliver its enterprise customers with secure collaboration options that meet their stringent business regulations."

CloudSigma's Swiss data center location with Equinix relies on clean power, as more than 90 percent of the Swiss electricity grid's generation capacity depends upon renewable energy. Equinix's efficient delivery of power from the grid to the rack minimizes loss and overhead, and meets CloudSigma's track record of using data center facilities that show consistent performance improvements in Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE). This allows customers like Workshare to minimize the carbon footprint associated with the provisioning of IT infrastructure and services.
