Solutions: Private Cloud

A CLOUD PLATFORM PURPOSE BUILT AND READY
FOR WHATEVER YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS.

 
Complex businesses have complex requirements for their cloud deployments. So, in order to meet those requirements head on, those businesses need the right IT environment to move their enterprise applications into the cloud—an environment comprised of advanced infrastructure, applications and managed services. They’re looking for a single, integrated cloud platform that’s natively equipped to handle all that complexity. That’s where Nu-Age’s Cloud fits in with a full portfolio of cloud technologies to develop and deploy your applications.

Nu-Age’s Cloud infrastructure and management tools offer you an easier path to the cloud, whether you want to offload a few virtual machines, create new applications, or migrate legacy workloads. And, with Nu-Age’s portfolio of managed services, available whenever you need them, Nu-Age’s Cloud stands as an easy-to-start solution that’s ready to scale with your business.

Private Cloud

 
Private cloud hosting is a single-tenant computing environment hosted and managed by Nu-Age. Each enterprise-class private cloud is powered by VMware and Hyper-V technology, and built on top of our award-winning automation platform. The result is a dramatically faster time-to-market and more agility than other private cloud options in the marketplace.

Within our dedicated private cloud, you don’t have to worry about shared computing or storage resources. No data is commingled with other users’ data. Similarly, no computing resources can be siphoned away by rogue applications on other users’ systems. This adds a strong layer of security and protection to your cloud infrastructure.

Do you want to use the cloud in your IT environment, but a public shared-server environment does not meet your security specifications or compliance requirements? Or perhaps you have a unique application that requires committed resources or optimal operation…That’s why Nu-Age offers customizable private cloud solution.

A private cloud from Nu-Age can deliver all the benefits of the public cloud while simultaneously providing you with the physical security and high levels of service traditionally expected from dedicated servers. We provide all the core elements of a secure, reliable dedicated IT infrastructure combined with the benefits of the Nu-Age cloud, such as speed of implementation, scalability and operational flexibility.

Our solution allows you to customize your cloud your way, based on your needs. This gives you the Nu-Age flexibility to create the most cost effective solution possible. Nu-Age’s flexible private cloud solutions deliver the agility that your business demands.

We do all of this with the attitude of a proactive business partner, tracking status, handling your requests, resolving issues and reporting on incidents 24 hours a day.
