The Differentiating Factors
Why do the world’s best companies trust CloudOne as a partner for building their Things for the Internet of Things? Read-on to know why:
They Helped Invent Virtual Private Clouds: They know Virtual Private Clouds well because they invented them for IBM Software. It’s NOT a public cloud: its dedicated cloud space just for clients. It’s the clients’ own virtual data center with the tools and data, connected directly to the internal network with encrypted network pipes. One can choose the characteristics of the VPC, be it centralized in one country or spread around the world.
They Major in Privacy and Security: Data security is top priority to every business, which is why CloudOne maintains the highest security levels. In fact, they’ve taken the unusual step of going beyond all their certifications and standards by putting all of the technology and services teams under a Chief Trust and Security Officer, meaning everything they do fits into top-level leadership in trust and security.
They Pioneered IoT and DevOps Managed Services: Because IoT on CloudOne is delivered as a complete managed service, companies no longer need to weave together skills, technology and infrastructure to have a complete, end-to-end product development, manufacturing, and telemetry capability, as CloudOne provides all skills in operation, management, support, upgrade, recovery and performance of the environment – a first-of-a-kind managed operations IOT solution.
They’re highly Scalable: CloudOne is designed with scalability in mind. Building IoT is not just writing embedded software, one must setup the environment for continuous engineering and deployments. CloudOne’s IoT infrastructure is elastic and grows to the size one needs. CloudOne’s IoT and DevOps experts understand planning and architecting topologies that handle performance, scalability and ensure there is never a single point of failure.
They Start with Your Things and Abandon Nothing: CloudOne enables companies to completely leverage all existing tools, data, software licenses, processes and roles into their own secure cloud, giving them the elasticity, economic and global benefits of cloud without migration to other tools or services – a first of a kind for the Internet of Things, DevOps and M2M marketplace.
