Cloud

Most people would agree that cloud computing is now an established part of any IT service. The big challenge today for many organisations is how to integrate cloud services seamlessly and get the best from this combination.

We have chosen to embrace cloud computing and all it has to offer. If a public cloud service is right for you then use it. If you need a private cloud, access to a community cloud or a hybrid of two or more then go for it (we do). That’s why we have chosen to build a range of cloud products that reflect our core values (Innovation, Quality, and Agility) and complement our core capability as Scotland’s leading provider of co-location datacentre services.

Cloud Infrastructure

Compute, network and storage are the basic components of any infrastructure platform. Delivering these as a service in a manner that makes them easy to consume and manage is the most common type of cloud service.

Our Cloud Infrastructure allows you to easily deploy compute, network and storage resources in any one or the established deployment models:

  • Private cloud – dedicated infrastructure provisioned for use by a single consumer
  • Community cloud – shared infrastructure provisioned in a secure, multi-tenant manner for use by a community of consumers with a shared use case
  • Public cloud - shared infrastructure provisioned in a secure, multi-tenant manner for any consumer
  • Hybrid – the composition of two or more of the deployment models (Private, Community or Public) within the same service that enables secure data/application portability between them

The standard features of our Cloud Infrastructure are:

  • Elastic service to allow easy scale up/down on demand
  • Self service via our Portal 
  • Snapshots for fast backup/restore
  • Solid State Storage as standard
  • 24x7 Support
  • Simple billing model

Just like all our products, we try to keep things simple but there are always a few options to choose from:

  • Security bolt-on (AV, Anti-Malware and IDS/IPS)
  • OS licensing (Microsoft or Linux)
  • Application licensing (Microsoft)
