Safe Swiss Cloud launches real enterprise cloud: NSA-free

Real enterprise cloud?

Think of it as your virtual data center (a package of IT infrastructure) becoming your cloud.

Most cloud providers however only provide a selection of virtual machines (VMs) of different sizes. We think they are selling glorified hosting and virtualization, but not a real cloud.
