CloudSigma Hybrid Cloud Offering

Hybrid cloud is the combination of features of two or more cloud models – private, community, and public. Consequently, it provides versatility, usage friendly and cost-effective features of the public cloud. It offers greater control and security of a private cloud and that is why it is the preferred choice by many organizations. The greater adoption will most likely be driven by the fact that companies prefer to have a choice to run the applications that are core to their business in-house, and run others on a public cloud without having to lose control on any of the data. A hybrid model enables the organizations to derive maximum benefit from their cloud infrastructure.

CloudSigma’s secure hybrid cloud technology allows direct, secure, private IP only connectivity between private networks in the cloud and private infrastructure – all within any of the data centers in our 10 locations across the globe. With CloudSigma’s hybrid cloud offer, customers can add large scale elastic infrastructure to their existing deployment, achieving cost optimisation as well as increasing reliability and security. This confers a number of key advantages to the customers.

Here is how our customers benefit from our hybrid cloud offering:

  • create powerful unified private/public infrastructure deployments and strategies
  • instantly scale-up of your physical infrastructure
  • <1ms latency between your private deployment and CloudSigma
  • utilise networking-as-a-service products to boost connectivity & security
  • mirror your private infrastructure to the cloud using the CloudSigma disaster-recovery-as-a-service

Our hybrid solution offers a simple, cost effective and secure way to extend your infrastructure:

The connectivity speed is up to 40Gbp to our cloud, internally or externally, from outside our data center locations. The result is that the two environments (private infrastructure and CloudSigma) can run seamlessly on the same network subnet at full line speed without any introduced latency. This in turn allows for seamless scaling out of applications across the cloud infrastructure deployments and introduces agnostic usage of both environments for computing.

Customers essentially are able to route their traffic via our cloud with CloudSigma hosting their IP ranges on our routers, taking advantage of our public cloud connectivity, including multiple 10GigE lines to various carriers and IXPs in most of our cloud locations, plus added benefit of IDS protection, all managed through 24/7 NOC. Instead of being burdened with the responsibility of procuring and connecting your own individual external connectivity line to your racks, you leverage our redundant routing and lines without any upfront fees or minimum monthly commits.

Users take advantage from our hybrid solution regardless of whether their existing infrastructure is located in the same data center as ours or externally. Ultimately, the goal is to eliminate the cost of the private patch or public patch to our cloud. In this way, clients choosing to host their private infrastructure under the hybrid hosting offer can not only eliminate data transfer costs and latencies between their private and public infrastructure, but actually lower the hosting costs of their own private infrastructure in the process.

By making use of CloudSigma’s existing multiple internet connectivity lines, in some of our data center locations we can offer a Network-as-a-Service product, complete with intrusion and DDoS protection, giving customers managed high availability public internet access for their racks in the data center.

Watch our CEO talk about hybrid cloud approaches during a Q&A session in the Philippines:

All of the above is complimented by a fully integrated Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service that leverages the power of a hybrid cloud model to combine your primary infrastructure with a cloud based DR environment.

Therefore, our customers obtain from a single source the full spectrum of dedicated infrastructure with colocation and hosting over on-premise cloud, secure hybrid cloud, dedicated public cloud capabilities to the public cloud, backed up by DDoS protection and Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service scenarios.
