There has been a shift of late to bare-metal cloud. The amount of companies popping up and starting to offer specialised services has risen in recent years and a horses for courses approach to cloud computing has become a growing trend. The way in which servers can be procured and paid for in a cloud computing operational model has meant that for those organizations looking for more grunt and raw performance, the choices now reach far beyond AWS, Azure, Google or Service Provider Clouds offering VMs or platform services.
Sushi Cloud aims to provide an alternative to larger hyperscale cloud providers, such as AWS, by offering bare metal infrastructure and a focus on customer service. The company aims to serve startups and small to medium-sized businesses, as well as the education market, particularly in the AI and machine learning space. The company’s mission to make the cloud more accessible, affordable, and understandable for everyone, with no hidden fees or agendas offering a viable alternative to the large hyperscale cloud providers that dominate the market.
This episode of GTwGT highlights the important role that companies like Sushi Cloud play in providing competition and choice in the cloud computing industry. By offering bare metal infrastructure and a customer-centric approach, Sushi Cloud is working to break the trend of large hyperscalers exploiting the market and providing a much-needed alternative for businesses and organizations.
