New Web Service Makes “The Cloud” More Transparent

Data Center Map, the leading website for finding data center service providers, has launched a new service indexing cloud server providers from all over the world, in an attempt to make the availability of cloud server offerings more transparent.

Aarhus, Denmark, 8 February 2011
Data Center Map today announced the launch of a new feature on their website, intended to guide customers through the growing jungle of cloud server providers via an interactive map.

Rather than investing in expensive hardware and pay a monthly lease to have it located in a data center, a lot of companies are moving towards renting infrastructure as a service (IaaS) via cloud providers instead. This enables them to reduce their CapEx and convert their server expenses to OpEx instead, as well as adjust their capacity as their needs change, which makes cloud computing a very attractive alternative in a tough economy.

The demand for cloud computing is growing rapidly as technology evolves, forcing providers of traditional solutions to change their strategies and adapt to these changing market terms” said Sune Christesen, founder of Data Center Map, and continued “The rapid growth of cloud computing has resulted in providers operating with different definitions of what cloud servers are, which combined with the growing number of providers offering cloud servers is making the market very hard to navigate“.

The new service allows clients to filter providers, based on their own definition of cloud servers, and thereby only seeing providers that live up to their own requirements. The results are displayed on an interactive map enabling clients to choose providers within specific states or countries, which is often required due to regulations around physical location of data. Furthermore clients can view details about individual providers, including an overview of their features, customer reviews as well as compare them with other providers.

A recent study performed by IDG Research on behalf of Savvis, Inc. shows that 75% of companies will use enterprise-class cloud computing within the next five years, but that 60% consider it extremely or very challenging to find the right cloud computing solution for their companies, which underlines the need for more transparency in this industry.
