The Virtual Private Cloud. Now enterprise-ready

Your business isn’t static. So why should your technology be? With our on-demand virtual private cloud services, you can add or remove huge amounts of compute and storage at the click of a button. And you’ll only pay for what you use, when you use it.

Best of all, you can enjoy total flexibility without compromising on security. Each service is built on enterprise-grade architecture, giving you ISO 27001, SOC2 and SOC3 compliant security, up to 99.9% availability SLA, and the world’s largest MPLS network and Internet. In other words, total peace of mind.

A complete infrastructure at your fingertips

From the simplest workload to the most complex, Flexible Computing gives you complete control over your IT. It’s ideal for:

  • Both traditional and cloud native applications
  • Projects with no long term commitment (e.g. test and development)
  • Small infrastructure projects that don’t justify the cost of a dedicated platform
  • Unknown infrastructure requirements where scalability and additional processing power may be required
  • Short-term IT needs (e.g. applications for one-off events).

Using a self-service portal you can instantly switch on and off a range of services:

  • Virtual Machines (with Managed or Un-Managed OS)
  • Physical Servers (with Managed or Un-Managed OS)
  • Storage for Virtual Machines & Physical Servers
  • Back-Up Services (On-Site or Off-Site)
  • Load-Balancing
  • Networking and Security
  • Reporting Services

Which means you can finally shape your IT around your business, rather than shaping your business around your IT.
