Do you want to host your data and/or application(s) at a public cloud provider? Good choice! By using a public cloud provider, you’re able to launch a virtual machine within seconds and best of all; you only pay for the resources you actually use.
The past several years, we’ve seen an increasing shift from traditional hosting towards the cloud. For you, as an end-user, this means you don’t have to worry about the physical hardware anymore. This way the costs of hardware and/or maintenance are eliminated.
Public cloud is the ideal solution for organizations with fluctuating demand. Implementing or changing required resources is in fact done in a jiffy and its pricing model, which is based on the consumption of resources, makes it financially attractive to move to the public cloud.
Nobody wants to be dependent on one public cloud provider. In case you are dissatisfied with your current provider it’s a relief to be able to easily migrate to another provider. Migrating from one to another public cloud provider becomes easy when they’re using open source technology. Public clouds such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud are built on their own technology. This makes it difficult for a user to switch from cloud A to cloud B in the future. Fortunately, more and more ‘open’ clouds are being launched, making it easier for organizations to move to the public cloud.
A common technology used by open source minded cloud providers is OpenStack; an open source cloud operating system backed by hundreds of organizations and thousands of contributors. Fuga Cloud is one of these public cloud providers that embraces OpenStack and uses this technology as its basis. This gives our users a sense of freedom. If desired, users of our cloud platform can easily migrate to another public cloud that uses OpenStack technology.
With Fuga Cloud, we have 100% control over our platform. This is very important because we work with DigiD and personal data. Everything is redundant so that we can guarantee the optimal availability of our service and all related data and documents.
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.
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 Azure, AWS and Google Cloud. By using Fuga Cloud, you choose flexibility and freedom.
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.
