Flexible VMware®-based hosting for your mission-critical server applications
The big public cloud services are fantastic but they are not right for every organisation.
Sometimes, the public cloud can be too expensive. Particularly if you have a lot of VMs that will occasionally require a lot of memory and processing power.
So we've created an alternative option - an enterprise-class hosted virtualisation service that delivers the perfect hosting environment for your applications.
It gives you the best of both worlds: the resource pooling, feature-rich VM management tools, predictable costs and control over security that on-premise virtualisation delivers. And the impressive scalability, rapid provisioning, platform resilience, rock-solid hosting environment and service level agreements that public cloud hosting provides.
The way we've done this is to combine VMware vCloud Director with enterprise-grade hardware, a multi-gigabit resilient network, service monitoring systems, secure rackspace in UK data centres and a team of virtualisation support staff.
Take advantage of cloud hosting without giving up the most advanced, popular, trusted, feature-rich virtualisation system around.
Buy a fixed-price pool of resources and allocate it to your VMs. Busy VMs can borrow spare capacity from less busy ones. We also offer PAYG options.
Our self-service web portal lets you reallocate resources, pause and restart VMs, and create new VMs. No need to wait.
Get instant access to multiple server hosts in multiple data centres, with automatic failover and live VM migration. Enterprise-grade hardware.
We can set up firewall rules, VPNs and private circuits to restrict access to your VMs. We can make VMs look like local servers on your LAN/WAN.
Our team of UK-based virtualisation experts are available day and night to answer your support-related calls and emails.
It’s simple to migrate existing VMware VMs to our platform, or to move any VMs we host to your own platform or to another VMware hosting provider.
Typically, you pay for a bundle of resources and for VMs that are managed/monitored/backed-up. You can then have as many unmanaged VMs as you like, subject to not using more resources than you bought.
Our self-service portal lets you adjust the resources assigned to any VM in real-time, including VMs that are live.
Unlike some cloud providers, we don't charge you data transfers in or out of our network.
The service comes with a host of options for adding firewalls, OS licences, and enterprise-grade data backup.
We can add the VMs to your existing hSo WAN, so they are on your private IP address space, and your WAN users are oblivious to the fact that the servers they're using are hosted externally.
