enStratus adds platform support for CloudSigma

Zürich, February 9th 2011 – CloudSigma AG, a leading European provider of cloud servers, is delighted to announce the addition of its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform to enStratus, a leading cloud infrastructure management solution.

Patrick Baillie, CEO commented ‘We are delighted to be included within the enStratus solution which we feel is a best of breed offering. Our customers will now have a secure and easily manageable solution for deploying enterprise class applications across multiple public and private clouds.’

Globalisation and the increase of critical infrastructure hosting within the cloud requires a combination of multiple geographic locations, good governance and high availability. Customers of public IaaS clouds are increasingly deploying high availability solutions across multiple vendors and locations; CloudSigma is committed to making those solutions as easy to deploy and manage as possible.

CloudSigma has always recognised the need for customers to easily deploy their computing across multiple locations and cloud vendors. The addition to the enStratus platform is part of a continuing strategy of open cloud computing with an emphasis on customer choice and avoidance of data and vendor lock-in.

enStratus: delivering security, reliability and cloud independence
CloudSigma has always recognised the need for tailored, robust governance for cloud infrastructure, particularly within the enterprise space. This requires combining open standards with powerful management tools. enStratus’ market leading cloud management solution delivers patent pending security architecture through a simple management console.

‘We are excited to add CloudSigma to our growing list of supported clouds,’ said David Bagley, CEO of enStratus. ‘The addition of CloudSigma provides our customers with an important cloud offering in Europe for their primary or backup cloud infrastructure.’

As a company CloudSigma does not subscribe to a ‘one-size-fits-all’ policy for delivering cloud computing services. CloudSigma prefers to give its customers the tools and power to tune-in their cloud infrastructure. The result is higher performance, greater efficiency and better security for customers. Existing and new customers of CloudSigma now have the option to extend and manage their computing via the enStratus solution.

Patrick Baillie continued ‘We were very impressed with the feature set of enStratus and their global coverage. We know many of our customers like to use multiple vendors for business continuity reasons; we know by working with enStratus we can make managing their cloud infrastructure much easier and secure for them.’
