Infrastructure-as-a-Service provider CloudSigma today launched CloudSigma 2.0, a next-generation public cloud that enables high-performance hybrid environments.
Some of the salient features of ClodSigma 2.0 are:
Direct private patch capability: CloudSigma 2.0 has a transparent private patching capability that allows customers to connect their own infrastructure directly to the vLANS within CloudSigma’s public cloud, all exposed via the same subnet. This significantly improves data portability and security.
CloudSigma 2.0’s private patching avoids the need for inefficient VPNs and allows for a totally private IP-only solution at full line speed and with low latency.
Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS): The new private patching capability streamlines data portability to enable a full-fledged DRaaS strategy, thereby giving customers instant access to and recovery of their data in the event of an outage or disaster.
Customers can hence run one environment both inside and outside of CloudSigma’s cloud without the overhead of maintaining two differentiated platforms.
Also, since customers are no longer required to send their sensitive data over a public IP, CloudSigma 2.0’s private connectivity mitigates data security concerns like cyber-attacks, data leakage and malicious hacking.
All-SSD, high-performance storage: Incorporating an all solid-state drive (SSD) storage, CloudSigma 2.0 eliminates the input/output (I/O) bottlenecks and CPU wait time to provide high levels of speed and stability.
It also boosts VM-to-VM connectivity speeds using next generation virtual networking technologies.
Advanced CPU options for better application performance: CloudSigma 2.0 places no restrictions on VM size, offers all resources including CPU and RAM on a utility basis, incorporates advanced CPU options with full-exposure of CPU instruction sets to VMs, and offers the ability to control visibility and emulation of non-uniform memory access (NUMA) as well as hypervisor timer settings.
As per the official press release, many customers like iStreamPlanet, Cinecert and Tracky who’re already hosting environments with CloudSigma 2.0 have een at least a 30 percent general performance improvement in terms of scalability, compute power and resource utilization.
CloudSigma 2.0’s pricing has an unbundled, pay-as-you-go approach.
“CloudSigma has always been focused on driving innovation as a founding principle, and that’s why we took our IaaS offering to the next level as soon as we had the opportunity,” said Robert Jenkins, CEO and co-founder, CloudSigma.
“CloudSigma 2.0 is a true benchmark in IaaS capability. We have eliminated contention and bottlenecks, created a new level of interoperability and hybrid cloud integration, and broadened the user’s ability to customize their service, all while maintaining our open and transparent model. These improvements are allowing us to further improve our SLAs, and we’re confident we can deliver on them,” he added.
