CloudSigma in partnership with IPC launches new Manila cloud location for the Philippines

Zürich, SwitzerlandJuly, 2016 – CloudSigma, a Swiss hybrid cloud service provider in partnership with IPC, the leading data centre provider in the Philippines, today announced the launch of a native Manila cloud location together.

The hunger for cloud based infrastructure in the Asia-Pacific region is growing at a fast pace. Companies nowadays want to build a secured, automated and redundant environment. Having recognised this potential and being able to fulfil the mentioned requirements, back in March 2016 CloudSigma launched its first Asian cloud in the facility of IPC in Manila, the Philippines. IPC operates multiple points of presence from local and international telecommunications providers and carriers and three data centers within the Metro Manila area. As a result all CloudSigma customers benefit from a low-latency highly secure platform all operated under the jurisdiction of the Philippines for local data compliance.

Key Value Added Services

CloudSigma’s unique partnership models allows best of breed value added services to be deployed across all its cloud locations. A key example of this is the innovative disaster-recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS) offering that’s of particular interest to companies operating in the Philippines where natural events from typhoons to earthquakes and volcanoes can put a strain on local infrastructure and cause outages.

Through IPC’s fibre network that meshes with our new Manila cloud location, companies can deploy a DRaaS solution that provides secure data syncing from on-premise to the cloud over dedicated and cost effective private IP. Further, a seamless transition to the cloud for disaster recovery purposes provides an ideal business continuity solution in the case of disaster plus an ability to easily sync back data to in-house infrastructure afterwards.

Using the cloud as part of a disaster recovery plan versus traditional physical infrastructure allows you to avoid the capital expenditure needed to maintain redundant infrastructure, instead relying on on-demand compute resources from the cloud. This reduces the cost of comprehensive disaster recovery solutions to a fraction of their former cost and allows many more infrastructure to be covered by such a solution including desktops and other assets previously uneconomic to include in a disaster recovery plan.

The service is priced on a simple per GB basis in a utility style providing complete cost transparency and predictability. Compared to traditional solutions that require complex set-ups and custom implementations, CloudSigma has been able to bring to market a comprehensive disaster recovery solution at a disruptively low price by using technology to automate many of these tasks and expose them in a self-configuration way to users via the main CloudSigma webapp.

The solution provides the ability to sync not only from onsite premises and datacenters but also between all existing and future CloudSigma locations. This is particularly relevant to enterprise customers who are running many deployments in different locations and want to utilise the full potential of the CloudSigma service by connecting collocation with cloud and running synced backup services or want to transfer some of their services from a traditional on-premise environment to the cloud.

Integrated Infrastructure: Colocation, Networking & Cloud

An integrated part of CloudSigma’s cloud service offering it’s it’s hybrid cloud abilities. Through a cross connect within the data center or a point to point layer 2 line, customers in Manila can seamlessly connect to CloudSigma’s cloud using private IP only and benefiting from low latency dedicated connectivity which is ideal for servicing critical IT workloads.

By combining the advantages provided by the cloud platform with the strong networking and disaster recovery capabilities, all Asia-Pacific customers can easily combine cloud delivered storage and compute environments in conjunction with their existing infrastructure.

A Unique Partnership
