CloudSigma Partners with The Founder Institute to Award Six Free Months of Unlimited IaaS Capacity to Start-Ups; ZenCash, Explorence, Citybot and JobFig
Zurich, Switzerland - November 15, 2012 - CloudSigma, an international, customer-centric, pure-cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider, today announced that it has partnered with The Founder Institute to award four start-ups with six free months of unlimited capacity on CloudSigma's IaaS platform. By housing their infrastructure on CloudSigma's platform, these start-ups will have the opportunity to leverage CloudSigma's flexible, open software layer to adapt their IT infrastructure as needed, supporting the typical rapid growth and changing demands of start-up businesses.
The four start-ups were named 'Most Innovative' during the November 7th Founder Showcase, hosted by The Founder Institute. Because CloudSigma places no restrictions on existing software or operating systems, the start-up companies will be able to seamlessly migrate to CloudSigma's platform and immediately gain access to one of the most advanced public clouds on the market, with its pay-as-you-go pricing, full scalability, 40 GigE networking and solid state drive (SSD) storage. And, with unlimited access to CloudSigma's public cloud, the start-up companies avoid any computing limitations while testing and further developing their product, or service.
CloudSigma decided to award this particular group of winners with six months of free, unlimited service because of their commitment to innovate and advance their respective industries with unique products and business models. The winners include:
ZenCash: Helps small businesses get paid through an online service that automates the entire accounts receivable process.
Explorence: Recruits phone sensors to immerse players in outdoor video games.
Citybot: Eases travelers' lives by providing them with a personal travel guide.
JobFig: Utilizes the Five Factor Model of Personality to match employers with potential employees.
"Our platform has consistently proven ideal for start-ups' IT needs," said Robert Jenkins, CTO and co-founder, CloudSigma. "We've seen start-ups encounter a lot of problems with industry giants, like Amazon, when migrating to the cloud. Other providers' restrictive deployment options and 'one-size-fits-all' approach simply aren't conducive to start-ups' flexibility needs. Therefore, we are excited to offer four promising start-ups the opportunity for growth and success on our customer-centric IaaS platform."
Today's announcement further showcases CloudSigma's commitment to supporting the development of start-ups. In June, CloudSigma partnered with Le Camping, a Parisian startup accelerator powered by Silicon Sentier, and its startup participant Skimm!, a mobile payment system provider. Le Camping and Skimm! found that CloudSigma enabled start-ups to deliver optimum performance while still maintaining strategic control and flexibility at the lowest price point, thanks to CloudSigma's unbundled resources and pay-as-you-go pricing.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.
