Our unique cloud service level agreement covers both performance and availability. Users get x50 compensation on qualifying issues for their cloud servers.
CloudSigma places no restrictions on the operating systems that run on the virtual server instances. We offer Windows cloud servers
and Linux cloud servers
and other operating systems of whatever version without issue. Cloud servers come with full administrator/root access also making them ideal platforms for reseller web hosting such as CPanel
. Any operating system will run on the CloudSigma platform as long as it is compatible with standard Intel/AMD architecture.
CloudSigma aims to make its IaaS cloud computing offering as close to true utility computing as possible. Unlike most other IaaS platforms, our cloud servers allow users to make virtual server instances with exactly the combination of CPU, RAM, storage and bandwidth that they require. We never bundle resources together allowing our users to buy only what they need and eliminate waste. As a cloud computing provider we aim to delivery flexible cloud computing services.
All virtual server instances at CloudSigma are fully persistent just like standard dedicated servers
. Whether a cloud server is running or stopped, all the settings, network parameters and drive associations persist. A cloud server is only removed from an account when the account owner deletes it.
All storage in the CloudSigma cloud is persistent. Storage is available in the form of drives which are created by the user. A drive‘s data is persistent whether associated or not with a server and whether or not a drive is mounted. Storage data is only removed from an account when the account owner deletes a drive.
As a cloud computing provider, CloudSigma is fully committed to making sure our customers only pay for what they use. We calculate resource usage using rolling 5 minute billing periods. It means we calculate your usage every five minutes and that is the amount you will be charged for five minutes only. Many other IaaS cloud computing providers charge a minimum of 1 hour based on your peak usage during that time even if that server is off for most of that period!
CloudSigma’s cloud servers are located in Zurich, Switzerland, at the heart of Europe. We are a native European cloud hosting provider. Based at the Interxion Carrier Neutral data center in Glattbrugg, we are able to choose from 37 different IP connectivity providers. This means we offer some of the most competitive data transfer pricing of any IaaS cloud computing provider as well as totally free, unlimited incoming bandwidth. In addition we have enviable (redundant) networking performance throughout Europe and beyond.
We offer you a 7-day free trial of our cloud computing services with a significant amount of free computing and networking resources included. You are able to create and test cloud servers on our cloud computing platform. Our free trial requires no credit card, and there are no further obligations on your part.
