In the middle of April 2018 CloudSigma was thrilled to attend the launch ceremony of the V2 Public Cloud – a public cloud offering based in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) – initiated in partnership between CloudSigma, Virtual Vision and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). The launch ceremony took place at the Hyatt Regency in Riyadh. Among the attendees were Patrick Baillie, Co-founder of CloudSigma; Hazem Sandouka, COO of Virtual Vision; and Mohammed Al Jasser, Managing Director of Hewlett Packard Enterprise Saudi Arabia.
By joining forces, CloudSigma and Virtual Vision provide the full spectrum of infrastructure and IT services. Virtual Vision brings the world’s latest technologies, services, products and solutions to the untapped markets of the Middle East. They specialize in cloud solutions that encompass their client’s entire infrastructure – from the data center to the desktop. Their users now enjoy best of breed services, complemented with multiple features in an adaptable platform.
The partnership is joined by HPE, which has been CloudSigma’s partner since the beginning of 2017. Together, CloudSigma and HPE aim to enable leading service providers around the globe to deliver best in class cloud services to end-customers. Cloudsigma is empowering its cloud stack by deploying on HPE’s latest hardware. Cloudsigma and HPE collaborate to offer a unique public cloud platform to Cloudsigma’s partners under the Cloud-as-a-Service model, accompanied by various benefits, such as highly discounted pricing, go-to-market support and more.
“CloudSigma are proud to have witnessed the launch of this public offering as we move forward to delivering a unique set of services for both KSA and the wider region through our partnership with V2. Through the provision of an entirely localized product that draws from a decade of operational excellence in cloud computing, we stand confident that customers across all sectors in this region will source a new standard of customer service from this offering.”Robert Jenkins, CEO @ CloudSigma
Key Value Added Services
CloudSigma’s unique value proposition allows its services to be deployed across its network of cloud locations without any modifications required. CloudSigma’s pay-per-use model provides customers the flexibility to deploy resources according to their unique needs.
International links through Tier 1 providers and high-end IP-VPN connections ensure a low-latency and highly secure platform, all operated under the jurisdiction of Saudi Arabia for local compliance.
Using the cloud as part of a disaster recovery plan versus traditional physical infrastructure allows companies to avoid the capital expenditure needed to maintain redundant infrastructure, instead taking advantage of on-demand compute resources in the cloud. This reduces the cost of hardware-based disaster recovery solutions to a fraction of their former cost and allows the provisioning of a larger volume of highly available infrastructure such as desktops.
The service is priced in a granular utility model providing complete cost transparency and predictability. Compared to traditional solutions that require complex set-ups and custom implementations, CloudSigma brings a comprehensive disaster recovery solution to the market at a disruptively low price by using technology to automate many of these tasks and expose them in a simple self-service way for users via the main CloudSigma webapp.
Redundant Infrastructure: Cloud and Disaster Recovery
“Unlike other cloud offerings, Virtual Vision’s unique collaboration with CloudSigma enables us to craft custom end to end solutions for customers that directly service their needs and at a uniquely competitive price through a single billing relationship for hosting, cloud and networking connectivity.”Hazem Sandouka, COO @ Virtual Vision
DRaaS provides the ability to sync not only from onsite premises and data centers but also between all existing and future CloudSigma locations. This is particularly relevant to enterprise customers who are running a set of deployments in separate locations and want to utilise the full potential of the CloudSigma service by connecting co-location with cloud. That allows them to run fully synced cloud backup services and transfer some of their services from traditional on-premise environment to the cloud.
By taking advantage of the cloud platform, the redundant networking and the disaster recovery capabilities, all companies in the Middle East can easily combine cloud-delivered storage and compute environments in conjunction with their existing infrastructure.
