Private Cloud Infrastructure

Private cloud is a type of cloud computing that delivers similar advantages to public cloud, including scalability and self-service, but through a proprietary architecture. A private cloud is dedicated to a single organization.

A private cloud provides great benefit, which include self-service and scalability; multi-tenancy; the ability to provision machines; changing computing resources on-demand; and creating multiple machines for complex computing jobs, such as big data.

Cloud is about efficiency, economy, scalability, elasticity and doing things faster and better.

Moving to the cloud introduces major changes to the way work is done. There are any number of things that need to be considered such as, your hardware and the Return on Investment; your physical servers need to virtualised and your desktop applications.

Our qualified and experienced team at Global Z-Data can help configure and build your private cloud infrastructure on your premises. Based on one of the worlds most widely used virtualization platforms, VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V, Global Z-Data’s private cloud foundation is forward thinking with business agility, continuity and efficiency in mind.

Features

  • Private cloud server virtualization
  • Server consolidation
  • Server resources on demand
  • Lower carbon footprint
  • Business continuity

Benefits

Business value – Virtualization to the private cloud has transformed IT from a cost centre to a driver of business value. This means that the people who work for you can do their work more efficiently and from just about anywhere; and that translates into good value for money.

Resources on demand – Our premium private cloud offering grows as you grow. This gives your business the agility it needs without the financial demand of the extra hardware required in traditional server environments.

Lower carbon footprint – Using the private cloud foundation we offer reduces your ‘carbon footprint’ by reducing power consumption. This is achieved through physical server consolidation. That’s good for the environment.

Business continuity – When a mission critical system goes down the system needs to be restored as fast as possible. Our cloud foundation makes that possible. Through a combination of software and hardware like VMware or Hyper-V and Veeam, we can help you recover your critical systems in as little as 15 minutes, even if we have to restore the entire server!

The best part of this solution is that when you are ready to move to a public cloud infrastructure, we just have to move the servers and through our tried and tested methods, you will be up in no time.


Backup & Replication

Product

Our premium backup solution is specifically built for our private cloud foundation solutions. Traditional backups no longer meet the business continuity and recovery-time demands of modern businesses.

  • Near-continuous data protection – captures changes and updates VM images as often as every few minutes.
