Managed Private Cloud

All the benefits of a cloud platform with added control over your resource. Unbeatable performance meets exentensive infrastructure management.

Why Private Cloud?
Private Cloud

Public cloud flexibility with superior performance and added security. Add robust management into the mix and you've got our private cloud in a nutshell.

However, this alone doesn't really help you understand if a private cloud is right for your business. Hopefully we can shed some light on that for you.

Hypervisors we support hello

Whether you're already utilising the cloud or not, a private cloud platform is often most suitable when security, customisation and performance are required in equal measure.

By partnering with a cloud provider like Cloudhelix, you get access to a ready made and highly customisable platform without having to procure, build or maintain infrastructure. Why not speak to our expert architects today so we can find the best solution for you?

Managed services take the pressure off your internal teams by dealing with the repetitive, day-to-day administration of the platform. Every provider has a slightly different interpretation of what management includes, but for us it means 24x7x365 support from third-line Cloud Architects and management up to, and including, the OS.

This means your teams can focus on the projects and innovation that drive your business forward rather than worrying about the infrastructure supporting it – we've got it covered.

The private cloud is brilliant for public-facing and unpredictable workloads including...

  • Demanding performance requirements
  • Demanding security requirements
  • Business critical applications
  • Applications requiring consistent high performance
  • Meeting compliance regulations and ensuring data sovreignty
  • Extending on-premise resource into the cloud.

However, this is just the start. Beyond generic use cases, we believe it's best to have a chat to discuss your specific requirements. Talk to us today to learn which platform might suit your project best.

We’re best known for carrying our complex cloud migrations and hosting critical applications.

Our platform is built from the ground up to provide always-on performance for these types of workloads. Alongside this, we offer a fully managed service for the platform, acting as an extension of your teams to manage and care for every aspect of your platform.

We also partner and utilise all three major public clouds, which means we can join up and manage your entire cloud estate across hybrid and multi cloud environments.

Private cloud features and benefits

Retain control

Move or keep your workloads on the platforms you're comfortable with. Retain visibility and ultimate control while our team takes care of the day-to-day monitoring, management and alerting. It's like managing infrastructure in-house, but without the hassle.

Whether it's a critical issue or quick query, our team of client-facing Cloud Architects are available by phone, email and Slack for super-fast resolution.

Optimise costs and usage

It's so easy to spin up servers and allocate resource that cloud sprawl is a risk for any company using the cloud. We can help you make sense of your usage while optimising spend. Beyond this, we can create an effective policy to stop things from spilling over in future.

Ensure compliance

We can help you understand the data your company stores, where it's hosted and how it's used. Perfect for industries where data sovreignty and compliance are crucial, we can help you make sense of your data to simplify how you prove compliance.

Our virtual private cloud platform is virtualised using VMware vCloud Director and vSphere to provide you with your own virtual data centre within a multi-tenanted environment. Use the best-in-class tools you're comfortable with alongside a platform that's up to the job.
