Private Cloud Overview
Each private cloud is custom built from a mix of enterprise technologies from such companies as VMware, EMC, Cisco, Intel, and others. We guide you through the process of building the best IT infrastructure for your needs with a dedicated onboarding staff and project manager who take your needs to heart. We are not just building the cloud, we are building your cloud.
Private Computing with Shared Cloud Economics
Spin up as many virtual machines as you like within your private cloud without worrying about increasing costs. Private cloud serves up an isolated, secured environment while maintaining public cloud economic sensibilities.
Fully or Self Managed
You can have a fully managed, fully unmanaged, or anywhere-in-between solution. Mix and match solutions because we will build your solution how you want it.
Whether at the office or on the road, you are in full control of your private cloud. Deploy, provision, and manage your infrastructure from any mobile device. This control extends to hybrid environments as well. Whether you use your private cloud by itself or with any of our other infrastructures, you will always be in full control.

Private Cloud Benefits and Features
There are a number of ways to use our private cloud solutions and every company finds a unique way to apply the technology to their specific needs. However, here are some of the most common ways that businesses use our private cloud services to support their operations and improve their efficiency:
Fast and Reliable Cloud Server Deployment
When you need a cloud server, you need it fast. With our platform, you’ll get them fast. Standard cloud servers deploy in 60 seconds on average while our SLA guarantees that it will take no more than 5 minutes.
In the event of server failures, vSphere provides continuous availability for applications with zero data loss, automatically.
Dynamic Resource Allocation
VMware vCenter applies the principles of pooling, abstraction, and automation to all data center services like storage, networking, and security loads across hosts and move guests to underutilized hosts.
vSpehere’s vMotion architecture allows live migrations from running virtual machines from one physical server to another with zero downtime. You can also manage and schedule live migrations.
Use only the space you really need on each virtual machine. Our private clouds are powered by VMware vSphere, which fully supports thin provisioning. This enables you to over provision resources, while the image uses only the amount of actual space needed for the server. Cloud servers simply grow into their allotted space as needed.
vCenter Site Recovery Management
Expand disaster protection to all your applications and smaller sites with vCenter Site Recovery Manager. Reduce the cost of disaster recovery by consolidating your recovery infrastructure and using cost-efficient vSphere Replication.
