"Worldwide Data traversal through leading Tier 1 Providers Simplicity, Flexibility, Reliability, Scalability and Security"

 

We use predictive analytics and proprietary algorithms to compute at 80% less. While we reduce your spend and scale more.

We provide an on demand or reserved cost effective option of AWS Instances and guarantee 100% application reliability.

We offer a Cloud a SaaS management platform solution that delivers Cloud efficiencies never before achieved. We use the power of the elastic Cloud to perform predictive analytics and proprietary algorithms to leverage the AWS' Spot Market and reduce EC2 Cloud computing costs by 60% to 80%.

  • We use an agile management platform to provision and orchestrate compute in any Cloud. Our customers Pay 80% less by leveraging Cloud excess capacity, without compromising on availability.

    How By utilising the power of the elastic and connected Cloud, our secret sauce, and the AWS Integration Spot instances
  • We reliably deliver 100% cluster portability and availability while dramatically reducing our clients Cloud costs.
  • We provide our customers access to the world’s leading Compute Management Platform.
  • We assist customers to leverage off Spot Instances for their production and mission-critical applications while delivering on 100% High-Availability.

Using key partnerships, predictive algorithms, scalability, and cloud intelligence, leveraging AWS Spot Instances and Low-priority VMs from Azure and guaranteee no downtime. As theres no need for any architectural changes, it takes 15 minutes to get up and running. The platform predicts EC2 Spot behaviour, capacity trends, pricing, and interruptions rate.

Whenever there’s a risk of interruption, the intelligence of the Cloud adjusts data usage to another unused instance accordingly, to balance capacity up to 15 minutes ahead of time, ensuring 100% availabilityfor our clients. Without any additional expense.

This means that your application will always run on the most cost-efficient collection of instances – the best-priced and most available Instances, when available and then falling back to on-demand if  not, in addition to prioritizing any reserved instances you may already own. The vast majority of common applications is supported automatically plugging into the architecture you already use. ( As long as your instance isn’t a single point of failure.)

SPOT ON with AWS
We also support All EC2 services, including Auto Scaling Groups, Elastic Beanstalk, Elastic Container Service, Code Deploy and Elastic MapReduce.
Sounds complicated? That’s why we here.... to keep things simple for you. One platform that is tightly integrated with the most common APIs for provisioning servers including CloudFormation, Terraform, ECS, Kubernetes, Rancher and Jenkins. (and provide all the support you need) 

Whats a Spot Instance? 
A Spot Instance is an unused EC2 instance that is available for less than the On-Demand serviced price. Because Spot Instances enable you to use unused EC2 instances at steep discounts (which we pass on to our clients) whereby lowering your Amazon EC2 costs significantly. (The hourly price for a Spot Instance is called a Spot price.) 

The Spot price of each instance type in each Global Availability Zone is set by Amazon EC2, and adjusted gradually based on the long-term supply of and demand for Spot Instances. Spot Instances are a cost-effective choice to run low end applications in the Cloud. The CloudINX Spot Instances solutions are well-suited for data analysis, batch jobs, background processing, and optional tasks.

Blended Clusters – Our Cloud is Agile and intelligently facilitates the balance between On-Demand, Reserve and Spot Instances in conjunction with making the right decisions to achieve the proper balance between Cost and Performance. CloudINX is Cloud Agnostic and highly scalable – We providing high availability in the Amazon Spot Market, Google Pre-emptible VMs and Packet Bare Metal Servers. We automatically increase the number of dynamic instances during demand spikes to maintain agility and performance and decrease capacity usage during lulls to reduce costs. 


Data Centre Infrastructure Development.
As the ICT industry moves into the Cloud era, broadband infrastructure needs fast track rapid service innovation. However Broadband access infrastructure is an asset-heavy and investment hungry development with a lengthy engineering lead time. We simplify the process and work with telecommunications network providers, Architects and Civil Engineers that specialize in providing secure, reliable, interconnected next generation network solutions. We consult, design, build, operate and maintain ‘best of breed’ infrastructure that is used in building data centres for demanding customers across UAE, UK and Africa, through key partnerships. We then  ship or fly in our custom designed Datacentres anywhere in the world, managed to the highest of industry standards, simply quickly and effectively.

Data Centre to Data Centre Networks
Our Clients include public and private Cloud platform providers, system integrators, managed hosting providers. The networks on which we operate carry an impressive share of the world's Internet traffic. We continually strive to expand our geographic reach through a connected network. Our IP solutions provide the reliability, scalability and performance that your business demands. Together with our Partners, Our Customer base is in high growth market segments, including financial services, Enterprise trading and interconnect to other managed services providers, digital media and carriers. Customers in these target markets enable expansion of existing communities of interest and build new, high-value communities of interest within the Datacenter

WERE IN THE BUSINESS OF CLOUD COMPUTING EVERYTHING IS MOVING TO THE CLOUD... YOUR ACCESS NETWORK IS NEXT!

By now, almost any company, independent of its industry and size, uses at least one kind of IT Cloud service. At CloudINX that’s no surprise to us at all, because Cloud pipe -computing services provide huge upsides and workload shifts for companies: IT departments no longer have to purchase, deploy and maintain computing hardware and manage expensive in-house software and systems, with CloudINX Cloud services are quick and easy to deploy, they scale as needed without involvement from IT, and hardware /software is automatically updated to the latest release level. Cloud Computing vastly simplifies and reduce the complexity and cost of connected IT service delivery – so your wired and wireless access networks can now enjoy the very same benefits. (But in the Cloud.)

We reduce costs, and complexity while increasing GDPR /POPI HIPPA compliance.

The CloudINX Group has a strategic alliance with local distributors. Together we work across a multitude of verticals and graphical regions offering an innovative scalable and flexible product set. We produce, distribute and integrate bespoke and standard technology products and solutions that are aimed at improving a range of connectivity and applications for our customers.

Scalability to Petabyte levels.

Networks scale along two dimensions. Firstly, network size, which allows customers to grow their networks seamlessly by as few or as many devices as needed. Secondly, functionality. The CloudINX scalable functionality lets customers add further features and even seamlessly upgrade to a higher solution tier with richer functionality, without impacting the current network and the existing configurations and policies. The ability to quickly add capacity is a huge benefit of partnering with CloudINX. Instead of IT procuring more networking hardware and/or software in-house.
