* Only AWS EBS storage available, assuming 80GB of General Purpose EBS at $0.11 per GB per month, at time of writing.
Also note, this is the closest general purpose server AWS have, however it has less CPU than the other options in this table.

** Part of a US-based organisation, while operating current Safe Harbour certificates, are subject to changes in US law, as are their customers.
Data stored with this organisation is currently theoretically safe from transfer outside of the European Union, but that may change.

Code Enigma is entirely EU incorporated and based, we operate to a high level of information security, a high level of systems availability and we offer strong SLAs. On top of all this, our support goes way way further than any public cloud provider. If you need a server, you need to know it will be available, secure and fully managed, and you need to have this on a reasonable budget, we are the obvious choice.
