CloudSigma Expands Cloud Presence with Equinix in Silicon Valley and Miami
With a growing customer base in the United States, CloudSigma continues its geographic expansion to be able to offer the right solutions to its customers.
Headquartered in Palo Alto, California, the infrastructure as a service (IaaS)-based cloud servers and hosting solutions provider on Tuesday said it has added a couple of new data centers to its U.S. public cloud presence: Equinix’s Silicon Valley (SV5) and Boca Raton (MI3) International Business Exchange data centers.
CloudSigma has been leveraging Equinix’s DC6 International Business Exchange (IBX) data center in Washington, D.C. since October 2013.
This news follows CloudSigma’s decision to sign onto Equinix’s Cloud Exchange to give a boost to its hybrid cloud solutions portfolio. The company said it will use the partnership to solve business challenges in providing enterprises with private cloud access in an automated, high-performance and cost-effective manner.
“We continue to grow our U.S. customer base and with the U.S. being a relatively large geographic spread, it’s important for us to offer the right solutions in the right locations for our customers,” CloudSigma CEO Robert Jenkins told Talkin’ Cloud.
According to the company, these locations were chosen for their “advanced power efficiency, robust failover systems, diverse carrier selection and ability to support high-density computing.”
“We have a diverse location strategy and, as a company, are able to manage a high number of disparate cloud locations like many of our larger competitors, perhaps even more so,” Jenkins said.
CloudSigma will announce a Hawaii location with DRFortress tomorrow. “This location offers a lower-latency option to customers looking to service Japan and beyond,” Jenkins noted.
He added: “Additionally, Hawaii, being geographically separated from both Asia and the mainland U.S., lacks good high quality public cloud services offered locally, forcing Hawaiian businesses to often rely on far-flung public cloud locations, which have high latency to them.”
“We are continuing to mature our platform by offering more sophisticated management tools that support core infrastructure management,” Jenkins said. “This allows us to avoid competing with our customers, work with leading solution providers and offer a coherent solution for end users. This includes everything from monitoring to disaster recovery to high availability solutions.”
