What is CloudSigma?

CloudSigma is a pure-cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) provider that’s enabling the digital industrial economy through its highly-available, flexible, enterprise-class hybrid cloud servers and cloud hosting solutions in Europe, the U.S., Asia, and Australia. CloudSigma is the most customizable cloud provider on the market, giving customers full control over their cloud and eliminating restrictions on how users deploy their computing resources. With CloudSigma, customers can provision processing, storage, networks, and other fundamental computing resources as they please, as well as easily deploy any compatible operating system or application with full root/administrative access. The result is the highest-performing cloud at the most efficient price possible.

Key benefits of using CloudSigma

Fully Independent Scalable Resources
On the CloudSigma platform, you can specify exactly how much CPU, RAM, Storage, and Bandwidth you require independently. We don’t bundle resources together. If you are a high CPU user for example you won’t have to purchase bundled RAM which you don’t need! If you need a lot of storage but less CPU and RAM likewise no problem. There is no ‘standard‘ server size on the CloudSigma cloud.

Run Any Operating System and Software That You Like
CloudSigma does not place any restrictions on the operating systems or software that you run on your virtual servers. As long as the operating system can run on standard Intel/AMD architecture it will run on CloudSigma.

No Meaningless New Jargon
We provide the same computing resources and networking as traditional dedicated hosting but in a flexible instantly scalable form and with more efficient billing and usage models. Cloud computing doesn’t mean we need new names for old concepts so we keep it simple. A static IP address is called a static IP address, a VLAN is, well, a VLAN etc.

Virtual Servers That Behave like Real Servers
The CloudSigma system is designed so that virtual servers behave like traditional physical servers. Users can start, stop and restart them. Users can mount and unmount drives and customise networking settings like adding a static IP or VLAN.

Guaranteed CPU, RAM and Storage Allocation
CloudSigma uses the latest generation of virtualisation technology which allows it to guarantee fully reserved RAM and storage allocations without over-subscription. We also offer a minimum CPU availability proportional to reserved size. That means the total CPU available on a machine is shared pro-rata between virtual server instances subject to a minimum allocation. At times when the CPU is not fully allocated, virtual server instances on our cloud will actually have MORE CPU allocated to them than the user is paying for. We can’t see any reason to limit the CPU a user receives when there is free CPU and of course that additional CPU allocation is not charged for.

Persistent Servers and Storage
All CloudSigma virtual servers are persistent. Once created whether a server is started or stopped it will remain in that user’s account ready to use. Likewise, all storage is written to a user’s virtual drives. Data written to virtual drives persists and is available in the future whether or not the server that that drive is currently associated with is running or not.

Automatic Redundancy and Fail-over
In the unlikely event that there is a software or hardware failure that causes a host to stop working, the virtual servers will automatically start-up once that failure has been resolved. Most outage events (although rare) last just minutes. Automatic redundancy and fail-over allows our users to configure their virtual servers‘ software to continue working automatically after a server restart ensuring easy management and higher levels of availability. A user can manually reboot a virtual server instance at any time.

Full Control via API or Web Console
CloudSigma’ s philosophy is to give maximum flexibility and control to users of our cloud. We allow all account actions to be executed via our API or innovative web console. Whether you are new to cloud computing or an experienced veteran, you will be able to access and control your virtual server instances and drives on many levels, irrespective of technical ability and experience.

Full SSD Solution
CloudSigma’s new SSD offering is uniquely sold as a utility service at the same price level of just $0.08 per GB per month that its previous magnetic-based storage was priced at. The SSD storage is available unbundled from other resources, including CPU and RAM, so customers can purchase gigabytes and IOPS with a minimum guaranteed performance levels, without risking costly over-or under-provisioning.

Fantastic!

Reviewed 8 years ago

Over the past few months I’ve been using Cloud Sigma after they introduced a 7 day trial which was fantastic as it showed me what I could do, how I could do it and why they are better than their competitors. I’ve got to say, after my trial I was truly impressed and decided to give them a shot! I’ve now been a customer for over 4 months and have never had any issues. If I’ve had any questions to...

Great service! Give it a try.

Reviewed 8 years ago

I’ve been using Cloud Sigma after I googled for a 7 day trial. It showed me what I could do with it. I’ve got to say, after my trial I really loved it and decided to give it a go. I’ve been with them for a few months now and have never had any issues. One time I had a question about something that I wasn't doing correctly and customer services was just amazing and so down to earth but also professional as can be. I change computers and stuff I use often and am happy that with Cloud Sigma there is no set server sizes, I can upgrade and downgrade whenever and I love that. It's affordable and worth it. I highly recommend them. They really are better than their competitors.

Pros

Great customer services. Great trial No set server size Can upgrade and downgrade server

Cons

Have to pay for it after free trial

Honestly, I think that the service is great

Reviewed 8 years ago

I work as a self-employed blogger/freelancer and I have used this cloud app for quite awhile. Honestly, I think that the service is great, I had a few problems in the beginning but customer service did a great job in helping a beginner like me out! Overall the app itself is solid and I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking of purchasing.

Pros

Great service Easy To Use Decent Price

Cons

non so far.
