If you require more flexibility than what is currently available through your in-house IT, or need the ability to scale the resources of your servers to meet demand, we offer private cloud hosting via Micron21’s Data Centre. The private cloud data centre is accessible with no contract and no significant capital outlay.
We've made it possible for businesses to build completely private networks of cloud servers. These can be connected via a virtual private network (VPN) over the internet, or directly to physical locations via dedicated fibre service.
Using VMware's vRealize Automation, secure two-factor authentication, and your own private VLAN, we provide the building blocks for a scalable, affordable and highly redundant IT solution.
Why choose the Micron21 Cloud Data Centre?
The cloud data centre offers a wide range of features, including:
- vRealize Automation Web UI – Create and manage your private cloud servers and network – all with easy access through your browser.
- VMware – Running on the power of our VMware hypervisor, your cloud data centre benefits from a range of enterprise options:
- vMotion gives us the ability to migrate your machines between cloud hosting environments – from existing virtual machines onto your own hardware, if required. It allows us to perform maintenance to our physical infrastructure with no degradation of performance or interruption to your service.
- High Availability (HA) means your private cloud servers are independent of the physical hosts they're running on. VMware automatically helps the servers recover from hardware or operating system faults.
- Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) keeps all of our cloud environments running at maximum efficiency – meaning that your cloud data centre will be too.
- SSL Gateway connects you to our VMware portal with an encrypted connection.
- IP routing & Private VLANs are made available to you – keep your Cloud Servers secure, tailor your access and control at the network layer.
- Truly elastic compute resources, available for you to scale up or down as you need.
- Bring your own virtual machine template or OVF – upload to your cloud data centre via the internet or VPN.
- Large Software and Operating System library ISOs available to be mounted to your cloud servers.
- Cutting Edge Managed Infrastructure means you don't have to worry about any of the technical components that build the foundation of our cloud platform.
