Virtual Data Centre, Claranet’s multi-award-winning cloud hosting service, utilises the latest virtualisation technologies, to offer businesses a new way of managing IT infrastructure, to deliver on-demand and self-provisioned computing resources (compute, network, storage) quickly and easily. Depending on your business specifications we are able to provide public, private and hybrid cloud hosting solutions, all underpinned by our Virtual Data Centre platform.
Resilient cloud services with true network integration
As one of the few managed service providers with experience in both hosting and networks, Claranet has built its Virtual Data Centre with resilience and network integration in mind. Our enterprise-grade infrastructure configures into redundant clusters that carry spare capacity. Should a physical server fail, these virtual servers will automatically be brought back online.
Virtual Data Centre gives you greater freedom and security when configuring your networks in the cloud. Customers opting for a private cloud service can easily connect to Claranet’s QoS-enabled MPLS network - to deliver a secure, optimised and reliable environment. MPLS integration allows businesses to migrate applications to the Claranet Virtual Data Centre but still integrate those applications with existing services and networking.
Local accountability and ease of migration give you real control
Virtual Data Centre was designed to provide for ease of migration. You can migrate platform or location whenever you want, no matter which hypervisor and cloud hosting platform you may currently use. We understand that there may be different legal and regulatory requirements to meet depending on the countries your enterprise operates in. Claranet’s Virtual Data Centre adopts a local, in-country principle. Whichever country you take your infrastructure in, the hardware, support and billing will also be from the same country. For PCI-DSS compliancy and data security, this means that your data will meet your local country-specific data protection legislation.
Built on enterprise-class hardware
Claranet’s Virtual Data Centre resources are built on enterprise-class hardware, which means that the virtual infrastructure will deliver a high performance, reliable and secure platform for your applications. The new service has been designed specifically to replicate the internal IT infrastructure model, and provides IT Directors with the reassurance of a recognisable platform. Built in partnership with industry-leading vendors such as Dell, Netapp, Cisco, VMware and Microsoft, Claranet’s Virtual Data Centre is hosted in high-quality PCI-DSS and ISO 27001 certified data centres.
