Azure & AWS vs Fuga

    1. Hosted in The Netherlands


    Unlike Azure and AWS, 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


    Azure and AWS have 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 Microsoft Azure and AWS. 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 Azure and AWS 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.
