As a leading cloud player in Europe, Infomaniak is launching an alternative that is independent of Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure. This IaaS infrastructure is based on OpenStack technology and is managed exclusively in Switzerland. SIE offers companies the advantages of a cloud with the best security guarantees and this at the lowest prices than the market giants.
An independent cloud solution for SMEs and public institutions
Today, data independence is at the heart of the political and economic world, which is why Infomaniak is expanding its cloud solution that was previously withheld from large organizations. This infrastructure is now available to all companies and public institutions that want to migrate their IT to a cloud managed exclusively in Switzerland.
The cloud is a cornerstone of digitization and an important competitive factor. SIE offers economies of scale in terms of capacities, a better user experience and enables infrastructure costs to be controlled or even drastically reduced. In addition, it offers greater flexibility and helps to absorb load peaks and to increase service reliability when there are high numbers of queries.
An IaaS cloud infrastructure at unbeatable prices
This Infomaniak infrastructure was developed by its own employees who previously worked for CERN, the Debian community and OpenStack. It is based on over 10 years of experience and is operated with the latest generation of high-end material. The online tools of the Infomaniak Suite (kDrive, kMeet, Mail, Calendar, etc.), Swiss Backup and SwissTransfer have been in operation since the advent of this technology, which equates to millions of users and petabytes of data every day.
The smallest instance (1 CPU, 2 GB RAM) is available from CHF 2.95 / month or 2.65 euros / month and the user only pays for the resources actually used with the option of having the computing power he needs adjusted on request. A tiered system allows users to control their budget and a quick comparison (CHF (https://kdrive.infomaniakgroup.com/app/share/100338/ed677394-01c3-4920-95e7-b4ec1bb07b54) / Euro (https: //kdrive.infomaniakgroup.com/app/share/100338/600769db-2a28-4e13-9eb7-dabf7e3c2ddb)) shows the price difference compared to the established players: the Infomaniak public cloud is one of the solutions available on the market. When opening an account, the user receives a starting bonus of CHF 300.00, which allows companies to discover the capabilities of the service and enables students to develop and expand their skills with large projects.
Open source and globally recognized technology
Infomaniak’s public cloud is based on OpenStack, the same technology that supports infrastructures from companies like NASA, CERN, Adobe, Blizzard Entertainment, Tencent, Rakuten, Deutsche Telekom AG, Nike, T-Mobile and Carrefour. This open source technology has no vendor lock-ins and can just as easily be integrated into a local, multi-cloud or hybrid infrastructure. Companies and institutions can advance their digitization in two phases (https://kdrive.infomaniakgroup.com/app/share/100338/9d7fe778-795d-417d-ab1c-75df5e91386d): first by ensuring scalability and backing up their infrastructure in the cloud and, secondly, this experience falls through the migration of the entire database to the cloud. The users remain independent and can continue to change their provider at any time, unlike with their own solution such as Microsoft Azure.
Infomaniak supports companies and public institutions in planning their cloud infrastructure. Its cloud specialists can also offer support for organizations that want to migrate their IT from their respective provider to Infomaniak in order to benefit from the attractive prices and the support provided by the Swiss company. This support is free and the strategy discussed can then be implemented through a network of partners who have been trained by Infomaniak.
