OpenStack cloud

Are you looking for a public cloud based on OpenStack? Meet Fuga Cloud, the only public cloud in the Netherlands that follows the OpenStack release cycle closely.

Fuga Cloud never deviates more than the next-to-last version of the OpenStack release, ensuring you’re always working with very recent OpenStack technology. In addition, by choosing OpenStack you avoid a possible cloud lock-in. If you ever want to migrate from OpenStack cloud A to OpenStack cloud B this is very easy and can be done without a complex, time-consuming (and therefore costly) migration.

With a simple case, we’ll give you an overview of several public cloud providers you might select. In this example, software developer We Make IT Work is looking for a public cloud solution for hosting their customers’ applications. For a start, a virtual server with 2 cores, 2048 MB RAM and 40 GB SSD disk space will suffice. In the example below, four virtual machines from 4 public cloud providers are compared.

3 reasons for choosing Fuga

1. Hosted in The Netherlands

Unlike AWS, Azure and Google Cloud, Fuga Cloud is 100% Dutch. We use Dutch data centers and your data is protected by Dutch and European privacy laws. Fuga Cloud customers aren’t affected by the Safe Harbor agreement or the new EU-US Privacy Shield, which hasn’t been ratified yet.

With Fuga Cloud, you comply with Dutch and European legislation and privacy policies on the protection of your own and your customers’ data.

2. No vendor lock-in

AWS, Azure and Google Cloud are based on a self-built platform. Fuga Cloud is based on OpenStack, which is open source software. This allows you to easily migrate your data and applications to other OpenStack cloud providers, should you want to do so.

Choosing an open source solution prevents you from getting locked-in by the cloud platform you use, which is the case with AWS, Azure and Google Cloud. By using Fuga Cloud, you choose flexibility and freedom.

3. No additional costs

With Fuga Cloud, you can select the most suitable configuration for your needs and immediately know what it will cost. With AWS and Azure you pay for every IOPS (read and write) transaction; Fuga Cloud doesn’t charge for these unpredictable variables.

The only thing you have to pay for, apart from your configuration, is traffic.
