CloudSigma offers IaaS with flexible pricing

The European cloud service provider launched its offering in the U.S. on Tuesday

CloudSigma, the European infrastructure-as-a-service provider, is bringing its offering to the crowded U.S. market.

On Tuesday, CloudSigma launched its infrastructure service in the U.S., positioning it as a better deal that offers users more control than competitors.

CloudSigma offers a straightforward pricing that lets customers choose the amount of CPUs, storage and memory they want and pay for what they use. Users can calculate the cost based on those choices on CloudSigma's website. Many other IaaS providers offer bundled pricing, where users can't choose the amount of each resource separately.

"We have a utility-based billing platform so you're billed for each resource individually," said Robert Jenkins, CTO of CloudSigma. "You can create your infrastructure based on exactly what you want."

Users get full root access to the servers, so they can run any operating system. The result is a more flexible offer that combines the best aspects of dedicated hardware with cloud services, according to Jenkins.

CloudSigma isn't building its own data centers. In the U.S., it is using Switch's Las Vegas facility.

Based in Zurich, CloudSigma already offers its service in Europe. Multinational customers there began asking the company for service in North America, Jenkins said.

CloudSigma will be entering a crowded market, one that is dominated in the U.S. by Amazon Web Services. Other IaaS players here include Rackspace, Joyent, GoGrid and Fujitsu. Dell, Hewlett-Packard and IBM are also ramping up services.
