Private Cloud services from DNS Europe provide an alternative to costly in-house-managed IT and disparate, externally-hosted cloud services.

Private Cloud hosting

Infrastructure & scaling savings

Compared to traditional hosting, Private Cloud significantly reduces the cost and complexity of 'stepping-up' infrastructure and provides an overall saving from a more efficient use of deployed hardware resources.

Built-in High-Availability - minimising downtime losses

Private Cloud has built-in protection against hardware failure with volume mirroring across multiple nodes. Should any server fail, the affected application components are automatically restarted on a healthy node.

Auto-recovery will recover (or remove) failed hardware automatically and our 'hot-spare' policy provides an additional level of protection, ensuring that your availability maintained.

Rationalisation & Management savings

Private Cloud allows you to bring together diverse IT hosting onto a single platform, allowing you to simplify infrastructure and reduce costs for application, storage & network deployment and management.

Design, Build, Deploy, Manage - single platform benefits

Private Cloud is a turnkey solution that allows rapid integration into your business services and processes. Together with our support & training services we can help minimise the cost of adoption and growth.

Our AppLogic solutions are delivered with ready-to-use common templates, appliance catalogue, a Cloud Control Panel (CCP) and AppLogic's intuitive browser-based infrastructure management tools.

Bridging the gap with Hybrid Clouds

For times when migration of an entire infrastructure is neither feasible or desirable, our Private Cloud is a versatile and developing platform that can integrate with legacy IT and other Cloud platforms.

DNS Europe offers Private Cloud hosting with our Datacenter partners Level3 & Interxion (London), Telenor (Belgrade) & Vault Networks (Miami). In addition, our partner network of other Private Cloud providers offers a global reach for your hosting requirements.
