Our Cloud Platform
Our Cloud platform is based on enterprise-grade Cisco UCS hardware, the market leading VMware vSphere hypervisor and enterprise grade NetApp storage, with a choice of performance tiers, ranging from an extreme-performance all-flash (SSD), to a simple per gigabyte, per month option.
We are one of only a few providers to have achieved the Cisco Master Service Provider (CMSP) certification for cloud and managed services, meaning we undergo extensive, regular audits to ensure we deliver our services with consistent operational discipline and excellence.
Other providers offer cloud, but we are quite confident that ours is the superior solution, based on the technology that we use and the market leaders we work with.
From our Cloud platform, we can provide a number of hosted services that are multi-tenanted, including UC, NGFW, DDoS, BUaaS, DRaaS, and STaaS, designed so that we can provide an end-to-end portfolio of cloud infrastructure and services.
Continuous service availability from redundant hardware and network connectivity, dual power supplies on all equipment from diverse A and B feeds, and UPS and generator backup on all supplies.
Storage is delivered with NetApp storage arrays which have redundant controllers and fans, with multiple paths between the arrays and blade servers to provide a highly resilient solution.
A variety of disk types and storage pools are used to provide options ranging from high performance SSD caching to cost effective mass storage SAS. Our own Cloud portal (housing VMware vCloud Director) allows complete self-management of a Virtual Data Centre.
- Scalable, resilient to intrusion, excellent call quality and affordable
- Combining multiple connections into a central SIP trunk deployment rather than installing traditional ISDN lines at each site allows you to pool your resources to operate more efficiently and reduce your overall costs.
- By procuring your connectivity from us as well as your SIP trunks, you can ensure that you have the amount of bandwidth you require and make cost savings by only paying on connectivity charge.
