(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Smaller and regional hosting and cloud providers are fighting for their survival as Amazon and other industry giants continue to monopolize the industry. Belgian cloud and hosting provider Shift To The Cloud has found a way to move beyond its regional customer base and compete on a global scale with the Amazons of the world. By deploying OnApp Cloud and CDN platforms, the small provider is now a serious contender in the increasingly commoditized cloud market.
In a video and case study released today by OnApp, Stein Van Stichel, Technical Operation Manager of Shift To the Cloud, describes the company’s experience with OnApp’s cloud software and the benefits it has seen since deploying it. Because of OnApp’s federated model, Shift To the Cloud can tap into globally shared resources to offer the highest quality, scalable cloud services to geographies including Europe, India and Russia.
