What is Masters in Webhosting Private Cloud?

Private cloud is a form of cloud computing that offers a secure, dedicated environment that only you can access and operate. When comparing private cloud vs public cloud, with private cloud you get the same benefits of virtualized computing power such as scalability and flexibility, but with much more control, cost efficiency, privacy and security. Just select the compute power, memory, network, and storage packs, that fit your business needs and we’ll combine them into a pool of resources that provides you with a comprehensive suite of private cloud services.

Our private cloud solutions are built on the best platforms in the industry and are ideal for any type of workload; from small websites to large-scale enterprise applications.

Why Private Cloud? Key outcomes for your business

Lower Infrastructure Cost

Purchasing, running, and maintaining your own on premise infrastructure requires significant capital expenditures, while the cost of hyper-scalers can quickly become prohibitive as your business grows. By deploying your own private clouds, you are able to maintain maximum control while keeping down both CAPEX (capital expenditure) and OPEX (operational expenditure).

Data Residency & Certifications

With data centers spread globally, including locations in the Netherlands and Germany, when you host your private cloud with us, you can have the added security of European data privacy laws. Add to that our comprehensive range of certifications, and you have the peace of mind you need to focus on your business, not your data.

Maximum security and performance

Moving from your own infrastructure to the cloud doesn’t mean you need to end up on shared, often overbooked, servers. With our private cloud solution you always have guaranteed resources. This means that your data is secure, and that you have the power you need to keep your site and apps running at full speed.

Familiar Technology

When choosing a private cloud solution, the last thing you want to worry about is a steep learning curve for your IT department. We offer a selection of industry leading technologies, because when you choose the tech that fits your team you keep productivity high, and employee satisfaction even higher.

Guaranteed business continuity
