CloudSigma Partners with CompatibleOne to Allow for a Unified View of Computing Environments Across Locations
ZURICH --(Business Wire)--
CloudSigma, a public cloud IaaS provider with advanced hybrid hosting
solutions, today announced that it is partnering with CompatibleOne, an
open source, cloud-aware software platform that enables organizations to
operate as a Cloud Services Brokerage. Through the partnership,
CloudSigma customers will now be able to securely manage their cloud
environments at different locations, and across different cloud
providers, via a single user interface, giving them better insight into
how they provision their resources globally.
CloudSigma has always been dedicated to creating flexible, open
computing environments that are driven by customers' needs, and this
partnership with CompatibleOne reinforces that commitment even more.
CloudSigma customers can provision processing, storage, networks and
other fundamental computing resources however they want, as well as
deploy any operating system or application with full control. What's
more, they can completely remove their data from the cloud at any given
time at little or no cost, without worrying about vendor lock-in.
Similarly, CompatibleOne, based on open source and open standards,
protects companies from vendor lock-in and ensures they will always have
the freedom to provision their workloads as best supports their business.
Today, if a company is using CloudSigma's cloud in Zurich and wants to
expand into the Washington DC data center, they have to login and manage
different user interfaces for different cloud geographies. Through the
partnership with CompatibleOne, the customer can now view the
environments at both locations from a single user interface. If a
company is using clouds from Rackspace (News - Alert), Amazon, Joyent or others, they
can see the servers in those environments simultaneously as well.
"CloudSigma's partnership with CompatibleOne aligns so nicely with our
vision for more unified computing initiatives and demonstrates our
commitment to genuine interoperability and data portability," said
Robert Jenkins (News - Alert), CEO, CloudSigma. "For our customers to be able to log in
and easily monitor via a single platform a transparent, comprehensive
view all of their cloud servers, regardless of location or cloud
provider, saves them time, resources and a ton of management headaches."
"CompatibleOne aims to support interoperability, portability, and
reversibility in cloud computing services for the benefit of users,"
said Jean-Pierre Laisne, founder and CEO, CompatibleOne. "The cloud can
only be truly open if you have open source technologies and open
standards behind it, as well as other industry innovators promoting and
investing in it. CloudSigma is a great example of one of those industry
innovators, so we are really excited to partner with them and continue
working toward a more advanced, open computing environment."
