We have been hard at work for the past few months, ever since we put up the holder page on our web site (thanks to everyone that registered interest – we really appreciate that!). Now the time to pull the off the covers and show you what we have been building!
Digital Mines is a European Cloud Computing Service Provider. We founded the company because we believe that the needs of the business market, and the European market specifically, are not being met by current providers, that are developer and US focused.
Cloud Computing has been heralded as a revolution in IT, an approach that allows users take advantage of world class infrastructure, for a fraction of the price it would be in the traditional in-house or outsourcing model. But to date only lip service has been paid to business users, with product offers targetting developers, whose needs are quite different that the enterprise market. Moreover, simply getting billed in Euro within a localised contract is near impossible at present!
So we developed our business plan and product based to address this, based on 3 core principles:
- Business Friendly: We will tailor a service that meets your IT requirements – from compliance, to policy, to price and SLA. We’ll provide you ”predictable utility pricing” so you can take advantage of pay-as-you-go computing, without wildly varying bills.
- Local: We will provide a localised contract, that we agree with you face-to-face if you wish. We will bill you in your local currency – be it Euro, Zloty or Pound. And we will provide a localised technical support and implementation. We are focused on the European market.
- Empower the Customer: We have built an web-based application that allows you to provision, manage, monitor and automate your Cloud Computing infrastructure – easily. But we will also provide pre-sales support for successful project planning, hands-on assistance with setup and configuration, and friendly technical support when there’s a problem.
We deliver managed cloud services, on the world’s leading infrastructure – and we make it easy. We deliver success in Cloud Computing for business. Our plans start from 150 euro a month for a server, with backup storage, and technical support from our team. You can modify your plan as much as you wish, and contact us for help at any time.
What’s next? Stay tuned – we have an exciting roadmap! If you have any feedback, we’d love to hear it, you can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a look around our web site, and if you want more information, you can contact me directly.
Lastly, I’d like to say ”thank you” to the team of people that took the leap into a startup with me. It’s exciting, and it’s challenging. It would have been easy for everyone to stay in secure, well paid jobs. Thank you team – this is just the beginning !
