Our service provides 6 different and fully independent regions where you can deploy your virtual servers

Your cloud provider, such as our ColossusCloud service, is the basket.

Your apps and clients are the eggs.

What was the lesson you were always taught from when you were a child? Don't put all eggs in one basket.

Virtual Servers, may not be best for you
