What makes Virtual Data Center unique?

You request a set of resources e.g. 32 CPUs, 48 GB of RAM and 2 TB of disk storage. This gets provisioned by Safe Swiss Cloud within minutes and you can start creating virtual machines in your cloud. You get all the management tools you need to manage your cloud.

A friendly web based user interface provides full control to deploy and manage your cloud - deploy virtual machines, create access controls, setup vitual networks and lots more.

Want to automate your cloud infrastructure tasks? APIs (inluding an AWS compatible one) allow you to program the cloud infrastructure as needed.

Worried about costs and billing surprises? Our simple pricing model means you know exactly how much you will pay in advance. You don't have to know how many I/O operations and API calls you are going to make.
