CloudSigma Expands U.S. Cloud Presence with Equinix in Silicon Valley and Miami

CloudSigma, a public cloud IaaS provider with advanced hybrid hosting solutions, today announced that it is expanding its U.S. public cloud presence with new locations at Equinix’s Silicon Valley (SV5) and Boca Raton (MI3) International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centers. Already with a cloud location hosted at Equinix’s Washington D.C. (DC6) data center, these additional points of presence will offer CloudSigma customers improved latency performance and redundancy while granting CloudSigma easier access to key Californian and Latin American markets.

Already with a strong West Coast, Southeast and Latin American customer base, CloudSigma’s expansion meets growing customer demand and satisfies low-latency requirements to offer the best possible compute experience. The SV5 and MI3 Equinix locations were specifically chosen for their advanced power efficiency, robust failover systems, diverse carrier selection and ability to support high-density computing. All of these factors played a significant role in the selection as CloudSigma looks to offer powerful hybrid hosting opportunities to companies in these regions to allow for a closer integration of both private and public infrastructure environments.

“Equinix is known for its vast vertical ecosystems that provide true business value by connecting companies within our facilities,” said Jim Poole, vice president, Global Service Providers. “By bringing one of the best-of-breed IaaS providers directly to our customers, we are generating even more high-performance computing options for them within our Silicon Valley and Miami data centers.”

Equinix’s Miami and Silicon Valley colocation facilities provide direct connectivity to a variety of network service providers, ISPs and content delivery networks (CDNs), among others, and connections to key metro areas, making them ideal locations for CloudSigma’s growing public cloud IaaS platform. Additionally, Equinix’s Miami data centers are at the heart of one of the largest Internet exchange points in the world and serve as a major communications gateway to the commercial centers of Latin America. CloudSigma is also supporting these expansions with executive ground support through CloudSigma VP of Business Development Viktor Petersson’s relocation to Silicon Valley and CloudSigma Director of International Business Thomas Redmond’s continued efforts in Latin America.

“Both Silicon Valley and Miami are regions where we are committed to serving with increased performance,” said Robert Jenkins, CloudSigma CEO. “Silicon Valley is already ahead of the curve in many respects when it comes to the cloud and cloud-based compute resources, but we also see a lot of promise with Latin America as companies go straight to the cloud to deal with the explosive growth they’re experiencing, especially in mobile services. These types of native cloud apps, alongside the progress we’re seeing with Internet of Things and Web services being developed in our cloud, will further the success of this expansion and lay the groundwork for more locations in the near future.”

Equinix customers at SV5 and MI3 will also have access to CloudSigma’s hybrid hosting offering, granting them use of its secure, private patching technology and reduced colocation expenses with a cloud spending rebate of up to 20 percent against customers’ private hosting costs.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications.
