CloudSigma Expands U.S. Cloud Presence with Equinix in Silicon Valley and Miami

CloudSigma, a public cloud IaaS provider with advanced hybrid hosting solutions, today announced that it is expanding its U.S. public cloud presence with new locations at Equinix’s Silicon Valley (SV5) and Boca Raton (MI3) International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centers. Already with a cloud location hosted at Equinix’s Washington D.C. (DC6) data center, these additional points of presence will offer CloudSigma customers improved latency performance and redundancy while granting CloudSigma easier access to key Californian and Latin American markets.

Already with a strong West Coast, Southeast and Latin American customer base, CloudSigma’s expansion meets growing customer demand and satisfies low-latency requirements to offer the best possible compute experience. The SV5 and MI3 Equinix locations were specifically chosen for their advanced power efficiency, robust failover systems, diverse carrier selection and ability to support high-density computing. All of these factors played a significant role in the selection as CloudSigma looks to offer powerful hybrid hosting opportunities to companies in these regions to allow for a closer integration of both private and public infrastructure environments.

“Equinix is known for its vast vertical ecosystems that provide true business value by connecting companies within our facilities,” said Jim Poole, vice president, Global Service Providers. “By bringing one of the best-of-breed IaaS providers directly to our customers, we are generating even more high-performance computing options for them within our Silicon Valley and Miami data centers.”

Equinix’s Miami and Silicon Valley colocation facilities provide direct connectivity to a variety of network service providers, ISPs and content delivery networks (CDNs), among others, and connections to key metro areas, making them ideal locations for CloudSigma’s growing public cloud IaaS platform. Additionally, Equinix’s Miami data centers are at the heart of one of the largest Internet exchange points in the world and serve as a major communications gateway to the commercial centers of Latin America. CloudSigma is also supporting these expansions with executive ground support through CloudSigma VP of Business Development Viktor Petersson’s relocation to Silicon Valley and CloudSigma Director of International Business Thomas Redmond’s continued efforts in Latin America.

“Both Silicon Valley and Miami are regions where we are committed to serving with increased performance,” said Robert Jenkins, CloudSigma CEO. “Silicon Valley is already ahead of the curve in many respects when it comes to the cloud and cloud-based compute resources, but we also see a lot of promise with Latin America as companies go straight to the cloud to deal with the explosive growth they’re experiencing, especially in mobile services. These types of native cloud apps, alongside the progress we’re seeing with Internet of Things and Web services being developed in our cloud, will further the success of this expansion and lay the groundwork for more locations in the near future.”

Equinix customers at SV5 and MI3 will also have access to CloudSigma’s hybrid hosting offering, granting them use of its secure, private patching technology and reduced colocation expenses with a cloud spending rebate of up to 20 percent against customers’ private hosting costs.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
