As per studies conducted by Forbes, approximately 1.7 MB of new data is generated every second. This speaks volumes of how we, as end-users, are consuming exponential amount of information and that data is possibly omnipresent.
The technology that stores, processes, and analyzes this data is undoubtedly known to us all. The current stage of evolution of this technology, essentially know as cloud Computing, has opened the doors to innumerate possibilities in the digital world.
There are a profound number of companies operating in the cloud computing sector providing a plethora of innovative cloud services and solutions, aiding the development and success of their clients. One such prominent name in the cloud services sector is Kamatera.
In an exclusive interview with CIO Look, Gal Farchi, the Affiliate and Partnership Manager at Kamatera, briefs us about the company’s stronghold in the cloud services market.
“We believe that the combination of providing our clients with great services while being attentive and transparent, is key to our success.”
Below are the highlights of the interview:
Brief our readers about Kamatera, its mission, and vision.
Kamatera was founded as a response to an existing and growing market need for cloud hosting services, more specifically a need to move from physical servers to virtual ones.
In the early days OMC Group, its parent company, started by providing IT services. From providing large-scale IT Services they realized the need of moving services to the cloud in order to decrease the use of resources and maximize efficiency without compromising on performance.
Kamatera’s vision is to help companies and individuals worldwide gain cost-effective, user-friendly, and transparent access to cloud services. The big players in the could sector have and continue to charge clients on traffic-based revenue models that are difficult to understand and where resources are not properly utilized.
Users do not have visibility and do not know what they are being charged for and the overall processes are vague. This is where Kamatera brings its unique competitive values, allowing clients to choose the exact services they need and charging them only for what is being used.
As such, we are able to offer more flexible and customized Cloud Services with 24/7 human support in order to make the services clear and accessible to all clients.
Kamatera’s range of scalable, flexible cloud infrastructure products include: Cloud Servers, Cloud Storage, Backups in the cloud, Private Cloud Network, Cloud Load Balancer, Cloud Firewall, Fully Managed Cloud and we have recently launched “Kubernetes as a Service” based on Rancher – an open source, multi-cloud, non-vendor lock-in Kubernetes Management platform With two decades of experience, we do not aim to specialize in just one element of cloud computing; we simply created a one stop shop for a business to be able to architect and deploy their ideal infrastructure strategy through our infrastructure platform. Our prices are competitive, our quality and performance are high, and our products are flexible. Moreover, we offer a highly interactive customer service, becoming an integral part of our customers’ team, helping clients achieve their business IT goals through our expertise and commitment.
