Hybrid cloud management platform provider Abiquo has announced a partnership with CloudSigma, an IaaS cloud hosting provider with hybrid offerings based in Switzerland, to add CloudSigma services to its multi-cloud management platform, Abiquo anyCloud. With anyCloud, public cloud users can manage their CloudSigma deployments as well as other cloud platforms from one portal.
The Abiquo and CloudSigma partnership allows anyCloud users to create and manage CloudSigma services as part of their hybrid cloud, while obtaining a full audit trail of activities across all of their public cloud hosting accounts. Additionally, enhanced compliance measures are available to users in the form of workflow approvals, where primary account users will receive an email to approve or reject any new VM creation or deletion performed by a team member.
CloudSigma offers enterprise-grade cloud servers and cloud hosting solutions in Europe and the U.S.
“We’ve always promoted greater flexibility and accessibility in the cloud, so are pleased with the cross-cloud functionality this integration provides our users and other cloud customers looking to use CloudSigma,” said Robert Jenkins, CEO, CloudSigma. “The technology behind the Abiquo anyCloud and CloudSigma integration allows for an interoperable solution that will be especially useful for our global customers tasked with managing numerous cloud environments, in the safest way possible.”
Multi-layered security is another key feature that Abiquo anyCloud provides CloudSigma users. Through the creation of member accounts, users are able to add team members by inviting their wider team to share their Abiquo anyCloud account. The same cloud provider accounts can then be used without the team members having visibility of the provider security credentials.
“CloudSigma is known for being one of the most user-centric cloud hosting providers on the market, especially for companies in need of high-performing compute at a low cost,” said Gilles Samoun, CEO, Abiquo. “Yet, many companies are still locked into another provider. With CloudSigma now part of the anyCloud platform, companies can leverage CloudSigma alongside their other deployments, all from one place.”
