Private clusters

We offer two types of clusters: small-scale based on VMware and mid-scale based on RedHat’s oVirt.  All our clusters are high-availability, consist of a minimum of 3 servers with shared storage, reserved, and separate networking with a firewall in front of private switches.
 
 

Why you may need a private cloud?

  • Guaranteed resources — no intrusive neighbors.
  • Total control — your administrator has total control over the cluster from top to bottom. 
  • Total security and privacy — nobody has access to your data.
  • Reliable hardware – all our servers and switches were carefully selected to ensure maximum stability.
  • Reasonable pricing — no lump sums, full budgetary control. You pay a monthly fee for the turn-key solution. 
  • Industry-grade software — we use industry-standard VMware and Red Hat oVirt virtualization platforms.
  • No extra license fees — they’re included in the monthly fee. 
  • Priority 24/7 support — any customer with a Private Cluster is important to us. Our engineers are ready to step in the moment you need assistance. 
  • API/DevOps — the entire suite that VMware and oVirt offer is at your disposal. A wide range of API instruments, extra software, containers, etc. — ready to use from the box.
