Are you looking for alternatives for Azure? Azure is one of the most popular public clouds in the world. However, besides Azure, there are other public clouds where you can store your data and/or applications.
As an end user, it’s important to realize that not many clouds are built on open source technology. This may result in a cloud lock-in; should you ever want to migrate from cloud A to cloud B, chances are you’ll run into a complex, time-consuming (and therefore costly) migration project. That’s why it’s wise to choose an open source-based public cloud so that you’ll never run the risk of a cloud lock-in.
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.
3 reasons for choosing Fuga Cloud
Unlike Azure, AWS 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.
Azure, AWS 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 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.
