CloudSigma was selected as a cloud partner for the initial phase of the OCRE project.
CloudSigma has been chosen as a service provider for the voucher program by OCRE’s coordinator, GÉANT. GÉANT is Europe’s leading collaboration on network and related infrastructure and services for research and education, and operator of the GÉANT network that interconnects Europe’s National Research and Education Networks (NRENs).
In fact, CloudSigma has been a preferred partner for cloud services to the GÉANT academic network since 2017. As such, CloudSigma is a part of the GÉANT Cloud Catalogue IaaS portfolio. GÉANT is particularly excited to work with CloudSigma, taking into consideration our extensive experience with research and innovation, as well as Earth Observation.
As a member of the GÉANT IaaS portfolio, CloudSigma’s strengths lie in its flexibility, performance, and excellent customer support. More than that, CloudSigma is one of the most customizable cloud providers on the market. As a result, customers are able to provision compute processing, storage, networks and other fundamental computing resources at one’s discretion, meaning CPU, RAM, Storage, and bandwidth can be purchased independently to allow the best combination of cloud resources without the limitation of fixed server sizes.
“We are delighted that CloudSigma has been selected for the first phase of the OCRE project. We are looking forward to continuing our work with them into the future and helping support research and education across Europe.”David Heynes, Manager Cloud Services @ GÉANT
