ProfitBricks, the infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) company that completely re-engineered the delivery of cloud computing, today announced the launch of the ProfitBricks Foundation Program for startups. To demonstrate support for the startup community, ProfitBricks is offering qualifying startups virtual data centersfeaturing the industry’s first user-defined network configurations at a dramatically reduced cost for one year. The program rolled out today to qualifying New England startups and will be offered nationally in early 2013
Cambridge, 12/12/2012 – “ProfitBricks’ Foundation program is perfect for our startup – it’s more scalable, more flexible and the easiest to setup and maintain,” said USpin Founder Ethan Bagley, Boston Startup Weekend organizer and ProfitBricks customer. “The Data Center Designer allows our team to focus on our product and not on learning and implementing a string of acronyms and complex setup configurations.”
Companies with revenue of less than $1 million per year will be eligible to receive the use of a cloud server from ProfitBricks for one year without cost. They will also receive 20 percent off of their IaaS services from ProfitBricks for one year. ProfitBricks’ clear, simple pricing model enables startups to break free from typical cloud computing pricing models that are astonishingly confusing and complex.
“Every startup deserves a cloud infrastructure that offers the speed and flexibility they need to stay competitive,” said ProfitBricks USA CEO Bob Rizika. “Our goal is to offer ProfitBricks’ virtual data center technology to startups who value access to cost-effective, next-generation cloud computing services. Our Data Center Designer and APIs enable startups to get up and running faster and spend less time on DevOps.”
