DEDICATED PRIVATE CLOUD

Truly Private with Cloud Economics
The way cloud should be.
It's not the cloud, it's your cloud.

ENTERPRISE PRIVATE CLOUD

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 on boarding 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.

  • Full Control

    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.

  • Deploy Your Own Tools

    Deploy Your Own Tools

    Design, deploy, and manage all infrastructures from any of our global data centers through our LEAP portal, which is accessible via the web, iPhone and Android devices, and through LEAP’s DropZone, Tandem, and Standard API interfaces. vCenter

    Flexible Provisioning

    Flexible Provisioning

    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.

  • Dedicated Resources

    Dedicated Resources

    You don’t have to worry about shared computing or storage resources on a dedicated server. The only shared aspects are the underlying network connectivity and physical data center location. No data is commingled with other users’ data. Similarly, no computing resources can be siphoned away by rogue applications on other users’ systems.

    High Availability and Disaster Recovery Ready

    High Availability and Disaster Recovery Ready

    If your cloud server crashes, it will automatically failover to another node in your private cloud, instantly. Cloud adds another layer of redundancy on top of our 100% uptime network creating one of the highest available networks in the industry.

  • Business Agility

    Business Agility

    Our private cloud solutions allow rapid provisioning. From spinning up new VMs to changing network device rules, we give your in-house IT team a high level of control or we can act on your behalf. In both instances, time to gate is greatly decreased.

Fast and Reliable Cloud Server Deployment

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.

Fault Tolerance

Fault Tolerance

In the event of server failures, vSphere provides continuous availability for applications with zero data loss, automatically.

Dynamic Resource Allocation

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.

Live Migrations

Live Migrations

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.

Flexible Provisioning

Flexible Provisioning

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 provisioning 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

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.

Software Defined Data Center

The next generation of data center is the software-defined data center (SDDC). This data center would start with a pool of complex, industry-standard hardware that can be portioned out dynamically and defined by software rules and limits. The SDDC brings together all of the cloud infrastructure characteristics that are critical for success. In building our private cloud offering, we set out to create a software-defined data center environment with a focus on automation and resiliency. To make this a reality, we partnered with VMware to give you the following:

  • Standardization

    Standardization

    Standardized hardware creates efficiencies with the resource pools. Creating an environment based on standardized hardware removes unnecessary complexity within the data center dynamic. Standardization also provides a basis for reducing costs across the board, making your computer environment powerful, stable, and affordable.

    Holistic

    Holistic

    Cloud infrastructure is designed to support any and all workloads and to do so in the most optimized way possible across the entire data center. Approaching the system as a whole, gives you complete control of your resources in real time.

  • Adaptive

    Adaptive

    Cloud infrastructure must be dynamic in its ability to adapt to changes in the resource workload. This adaptability is automated and built on defined configurations and according to the demands of the applications it runs. VMware utilizes Distributed Resources Scheduling, which portions resources to the highest priority applications, balances computing capacity, and allows high levels of hardware optimization and utilization. By creating a set of rules, your platform adapts to ever changing conditions faster than any support tech.

    Resilient

    Resilient

    SDDCs must be able to compensate for hardware and software failure. Coupled with automation and adaptability, the network is automated in its approach to adapt to possible problems and continue with the highest level of availability.

  • Automated

    Automated

    Automation is the hallmark of quality cloud infrastructure. Specifically when using software to define the data center space, the framework must have built-in intelligences to eliminate complexity and create elastic computing without needing direct human guidance.

    Abstract. Pool. Automate.

    Abstract. Pool. Automate.

    Traditional data centers create rigid environments instead of creating a flexible ecosystem for dealing with today’s compute problems. With virtualization we have seen the power of abstracting the resources, pooling them across hardware, and then automating the portioning. By applying these same principles to storage, to the network, and to security we can create an abstracted data center defined by software. In this manner, SingleHop, powered by VMware, offers you a vital lifeline to the data center of tomorrow, today.
