Our Private Clouds improve companies' workloads. We save you significant financial resources and ease the management effort.
We provision them on-demand and configure them to your company's custom settings. They are secure and apply your best practices and procedures.
All Private Cloud servers and Hosted Virtual Desktops are much more secure than any office installations and workstations. We apply strict and standardized security policy on our Cloud infrastructure. Users don't have root rights, cannot install any unauthorized applications and cannot bypass or violate your company's security procedures.
Your data is hosted on a Storage Area Network (SAN) with built-in protection that safeguards the information under any circumstances without performance impact.
The storage appliances feature redundancy on all data protection components, which adds High Availability to all storage services.
All SAN appliances are a backward-compatible. We keep data snapshots, which allow us to go backwards and to restore data set as it was 24 hours prior any incident or a loss of information, result of mismanagement or a client side human mistake.
You'll be surprised by the performance of our enterprise SATA Storage
Our enterprise SATA HDD based Storage Area Network is not just Fault-Tolerant. It offers and excellent I/O. It is so good that you might never need to use an SSD-based storage!
However, if you need enterprise-grade SSD storage service, it is available at very reasonable cost per GB.
Finally, you can always assign different storage services to your applications. Some of your data can reside on a SATA virtual storage drives, while others could use our enterprise SSD service. It is your decision!
Even our standard Non High Availability Private Clouds feature increased availability!
However, if you need a to use a Private Cloud with a native High Availability (HA) and to reduce any possible application or a service downtime, you should consider the HA service. It provides uniform, cost-effective failover protection against any outage caused by a hardware or an Operating System (OS) failure. How does it work?
The High Availability (HA) service monitors the Private Clouds hosted on our VMware powered infrastructure. In case of a failure on the underlying physical hosts or an Operating System failure inside any Private Cloud, the HA restarts the cloud instance on another physical host. All operations resume automatically and all services that run on your Private Cloud server return online without a manual reboot.
Have you ever calculated the reliability impact on your business development? Application downtime and interruption of workloads and services are very costly. They result into a direct loss of money and usually damage the reputation of any business.
Well, we are happy to provision Continuous Availability Private Clouds (also called Fault-Tolerant Private Clouds) to your organization? Unlike the High Availability (Increased Availability), which reduces any service outage, the Automated Fault-Tolerance (AFT) function provides continuous availability for applications in an event of cloud server failure. How does it work?
AFT creates a live shadow Private Cloud instance for failover, which is synchronized and always up-to-date with the primary one. In an event of a OS, application or services outage, the AFT automatically starts the failover Private Cloud instance, ensuring zero downtime and preventing data loss.

Well, we all could have decided against using computers and would stick to the typewriters in the 80s and 90s of the last century, couldn't we?. We didn't, however. Now, we are moving towards a Digital Economy, in which most of the production and workloads are computer driven. Those computers need to exchange data, to work in a network mode, to provision services across Internet or in any closed networks. These days any business office is much more a workspace which people use collaborate, manage operations and make decision, not a place to host computing infrastructure.
Any company that keeps using on-premise computing faces increased maintenance costs (power & cooling, internet connectivity, hardware purchases), high system support cost and significant management effort. It is also getting harder to apply custom settings, advanced security and access policy to any on-premise IT infrastructure. Most businesses also depend on any custom build, non-standard based services or on vendor lock-in solutions.
The use of Public Cloud removes all the hassle and most of the challenges that organization face with the on-premise built IT infrastructures. On the Cloud (inside virtualized data centers), businesses can plan much better the capacity they need and the cost, while spending money only on those services they really need. Any IT infrastructure development and maintenance costs are outsourced to the Cloud services provider, who has certain liabilities to the clients, outlined in a Service Level Agreement and contracts.
It is very likely that after 2020 most of the business software applications would not be available for use as on-premise installations on stand-alone computers or servers, as all devices - from small personal gadgets to enterprise IT systems - now require Internet connectivity to function properly. In such model of IT architecture and service delivery, significant part of the data we need to use and most of the computing operations and workloads are already moved into data centers and Cloud infrastructures.
So, the question is how to move to the Cloud faster and smoothly, rather than how increase the lifecycle of our current on-premise IT infrastructure for another 3 or 5 years.
