Launched in 2016 by serial tech entrepreneur, Bevan Slattery, Cloudscene is now the world’s largest directory of colocation data centers, cloud service providers and network fabrics.
In a bid to deliver a valuable service to the industry, we’ve provided the ability to search Cloudscene for free and without creating an account. However, there are a number of features and tools available exclusively to our users that you could be missing out on.

Cloudscene users have exclusive access to free telco leads via our independent Marketplace for buyers and sellers of connectivity services.
Users can also create Buyer's Listings in order to fulfill their service requirements - without the quote shopping! And service providers can view and respond to Buyer's Listings when logged into their Cloudscene account.
Drawing clear comparisons between colocation data centers, cloud service providers and markets is a whole lot easier thanks to our compare tool available when logged in to your Cloudscene account.
A simple way to instantly evaluate two profiles, simply click on the scales icon at the top of any data center/service provider listing or market page and follow the prompts.
For data centers, the compare tool generates technical information, market data, operator rankings, certifications and lists service providers all in a single screen. To get you started, take a look at some of our top data center comparisons:
- Westin Building Exchange vs Equinix DC2
- Telehouse North vs Equinix LD5
- NextDC M1 vs Global Switch Sydney West
For service providers, you'll be able to compare the two profiles based on company details, certifications, markets, PoPs and fabric memberships. And comparing markets offers both a macro level comparison for the selected regions as well as further insight into the data center ecosystems of the market.
Favorites and Alerts
To keep track of important listings and allow for quick access to information of interest, Cloudscene users have the ability to create favorites. Accessible any time from the admin menu, favorites can be created for data centers, service providers, network fabrics and markets.
Users can also be notified of changes made to their favorite listings with email alerts (maximum of one email sent daily and only if changes have been made). Email alerts and favorites can be removed easily from My Alerts at any time.
The market profiles on Cloudscene are some of our most popular and it's not hard to see why. All data centers, service providers and network fabrics that are within a region are pooled together to give detailed insight of the market’s ecosystem.
The graphs on the market pages take this one step further to give users additional analysis on regions of interest. Specifically, the graphs offer a snapshot of the region as well as rankings which compare ecosystems, data center operators and service providers. All four graphs are accessible to users when logged in.
Claim Company Listings
Hundreds of service providers and data center operators actively manage their Cloudscene listings to ensure the data published is as up-to-date as possible. The more accurate the information, the higher the likelihood of enquiries or increased traffic to your site. Data centers and service providers may even climb up our rankings simply by updating their listings.
Users can also give team members access to the corporate account to help manage the listings. There is no team limit and it's as simple as logging in to your account, selecting the company from the admin menu and clicking Team Members.
