VMware vCloudDirector Powered™ Cloud Computing

Datastore365’s virtual infrastructure gives you a secure, resilient and highly available alternative to dedicated servers and on-premise machines. We provide resources that look and feel exactly like dedicated servers but that sit on top of a powerful cloud computing platform. It’s ideal for disaster recovery, test and development, or a full production system.

With a virtual infrastructure, you’re in charge of how much processing power and space you use, meaning you never have to pay for unnecessary provision. You can scale the infrastructure up or down to suit your needs at any time, without the expense of moving from one server to another. And without the need to invest in expensive hardware, going virtual can be funded from your operational expenditure.

Public, Private or Hybrid Cloud?

Our VMware vCloud Powered virtual infrastructure is the next generation of server environment, and is designed to address the inefficiencies of the in-house server model and the limitations of dedicated servers. Without the restrictions and hassles associated with having to own, manage and maintain server hardware, virtual servers instead offer ready-to-use, fully-supported server capacity on a simple monthly subscription basis. However, our virtual servers don’t have to act as islands: they can be fully integrated with your existing networks to behave as a seamless extension of your infrastructure.

Our virtual infrastructure servers look and feel exactly like traditional dedicated servers but have instant access to an almost limitless pool of computing resources. As such, changes to your server can be made on the fly, without any of the headaches or cost penalties associated with moving from one server to another. Thus, whilst you’re guaranteed a minimum level of resources, you’ve always got access to more should you need them.

Additional RAM, CPU and disk space can all be added and removed at the click of a button and without any need for rebooting, providing you with a truly agile, scalable server environment. This means you don’t have to over-subscribe to provide for seasonal peaks or unanticipated demand – you can just expand server resources as and when they’re needed.

Quickly deploy your virtual infrastructure like never before…

Illustration 3 Virtualisation Layer

Virtualisation Layer

Virtualisation and clustering are two ways of generating pools of resources from which services can be deployed and launched. Virtualisation allows the scaling up and down of elements such as CPU on the fly.

Using VMware vSphere with vCloud Director, you’re empowered to deploy pre-configured or custom-built services whilst maintaining security and control over multi-tenant environments with policy-based user controls. IT services can now act as a service provider for the businesses they work with, driving innovation and agility at the same time as increasing IT efficiency and improving security.

Illustration 4 Cloud Pool

Cloud Compute Pool:

Create virtual servers from our hardware platform and assign from a pool of compute resources consisting of CPU, memory and storage. We can present this mass of computing power as single or multiple devices within your very own Virtual Datacentre (vDC).
