Virtual Data Centre

Flexible hosting for your applications

With hSo Virtual Data Centre (vDC), no need to compromise anymore: you can get high availability coupled with on-demand scalability.

hSo vDC is a scalable cloud computing platform, providing on-demand storage, server resources and applications, that can be integrated into your existing IT infrastructure. No need to worry about security, since it is part of your private MPLS network.

We combine world-leading VMware vSphere® virtualisation software with enterprise-grade hosting to create the perfect environment for your applications.

We take care of the hardware, the hosting and the virtualisation layer, letting you focus on the applications themselves. You can just rent the VMs you need.

Using VMware vCloud Director, you have full control of your virtual data centres, allowing you to change resources quickly and giving you the flexibility to turn virtual machines off and on as required via our secure web portal.

Why choose hSo Virtual Data Centre?


Our pay as you go model allows you to create as many virtual machines as you need and only pay for allocated resources when servers are running.

Painless administration

The hSo vDC web portal is a user-friendly self-service portal that gives you the freedom to automate and manage your resources, instantly. Add RAM, SAN storage etc to your VMs – without downtime.

Complete cloud solution

We can also provide you with your own WAN, so your hosting environment is integrated seamlessly to your existing IT infrastructure with secure fibre connectivity at each site.

Built for backup

Your data is in safe hands. hSo vDC improves disaster recovery and business continuity by automating VM-level backups to all VMs in order to minimise the risk of data loss.
