Private Cloud

Private cloud has always been known for its customizable control, inherent security capabilities, and high levels of performance and dependability. But today’s private cloud solutions offer new capabilities that make them more appealing than ever, including real-time scaling, consumption-based pricing, intelligent automation, containers, serverless computing and AI and machine learning.

Today’s private cloud can run a whole software-defined data center on top of single-tenant infrastructure — creating a complete cloud-like experience and opening up new possibilities for businesses that can’t move to public cloud — whether because of geography, performance requirements, regulations or even company culture.

With our VMware®-based hybrid cloud solutions, you can tap into cloud innovations within the predictability and familiarity of your own private cloud infrastructure. Gain the immediate benefits of public cloud with the luxury and flexibility of modernizing your applications when it suits you, while securing your most-sensitive data in your private cloud deployment.

Use Cases

Our hosted private cloud solutions allow you to run and optimize workloads in the best location and on the best infrastructure, without any major rework. We make it possible both to move to the cloud without re-architecting applications, and to scale your environment to other types of clouds.

We help you maintain and run legacy and mission-critical applications where it makes most sense, so you can:

  • Continue using in-house developed applications in your private cloud hosting until you're ready to retire them
  • Avoid the expense of high-volume data management in the public cloud
  • Keep your applications and computing resources that support third parties or run critical core processes on-site

Store your data adjacent to the cloud — not in it. Cost-effectively make your data available to whichever cloud services you need. Eliminate public cloud egress fees and avoid cloud lock-in.
