A Scalable, Flexible Private Cloud

Dedicated Cloud Compute instances are built on fully-redundant architecture designed to eliminate downtime, reduce cost, increase flexibility and optimize performance. Take advantage of completely isolated environments built on single-tenant hardware nodes providing maximum performance and control. Move instances between physical environments without service interruption and keep production applications up without compromising performance or security.

Customer-controlled online instance provisioning in minutes delivers dynamic and scalable infrastructure, Dedicated Cloud Compute is based on virtualization technology powered by VMware. It is an enterprise-grade solution that can be partitioned into multiple self-contained VMs, dramatically reducing the cost and management hassles that accompany server sprawl.

Dedicated Cloud Compute enables the deployment of dynamic cloud architecture to eliminate downtime.

Control and Visibility

Our portal gives you total control and a complete view of server and networking infrastructure. Intuitive wizards help to customize and provision new server instances from a multi-tenant or dedicated pool of physical components. Once Dedicated Cloud Compute nodes and instances are deployed, you can elect to utilize full capacity management and customizable monitoring. The easy-to-navigate portal provides a visual display of server usage, host node instances, and available storage, all in one place.

Use Cases

Dedicated Cloud Compute helps with compliance

Staying Compliant

External compliance requirements such as PCI, HIPPA and others frequently drive a need for physical hardware isolation. By providing the best-in-breed, best-practice solutions for dedicated system design, secure account access, file integrity and secure data transmission. Dedicated Cloud Compute ensures customer physical and virtual isolation, which means data is locked down and safe-guarded.

Dedicated Cloud Compute is a secure private cloud

When Security is a Priority

When selecting a cloud service offering, enterprise customers have the understandable expectation that their cloud service provider will maintain reasonable security standards. But it's up to enterprises to identify realistic risk scenarios of cloud deployments in real-time, and to make educated decisions accordingly. Security breaches open the door to potential liability on a large scale. So choosing the right private cloud solution is critical.

Enterprise application deployments are facilitated with Dedicated Cloud Compute

Enterprise Application Deployments

Enterprise IT departments face a range of business requirements. One business unit may need highly-secure, single-tenant infrastructure designed to handle sensitive data. Another unit may require a hybrid-cloud that can scale to handle varying fluctuations in demand. Everyone benefits from the flexibility and scalability of the cloud.
