VMware vCloud powered public cloud

Organisations facing a future of never-ending lifecycle upgrades on existing hardware are looking to find a better way. The truth is public clouds offer better security, more flexibility, reduced costs, and an almost endless ability to expand your IT resources. With a VMware vCloud powered public cloud, you can have it all without the burden of everyday IT administration and annual capital expenditures.

By using vCloud, we’re able to quickly allocate, provision, and secure firewalls to meet your requirements. And if you have the need, you can also use vCloud on our cloud to manage your own virtual data centre for your company.

Every public cloud customer receives:

  • Secure resources in Tier 3/4 data centres
  • Enterprise infrastructure with no single point of failure
  • Low latency network guarantees
  • Guaranteed 100% uptime SLA
  • Server backups (tailored to your requirements)
  • Convenient management tools
  • Option for fully managed servers
  • Support from highly trained certified VMware experts

Operate your own virtual data centre

Customers needing data centre capability, but not the capital investment or management burden can create a virtual data centre on our infrastructure using VMware vCloud. A software defined data centre allows your staff to provision services and resources in just minutes. It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3:

1: Install OS and applications

You’re completely free to install exactly what you need to run your applications

2: Allocate resources

Assign servers, storage and networking resources to align with your specific requirements

3: Configure firewall policies

Maintain your security by taking control of the firewalls used to protect your virtual data centre.

If you have your own pre-designed server images, these steps are even easier. If you don’t, we have a public catalogue of images to enable rapid provisioning.

Be “blown away” by our experience

Even for organisations that have used virtualisation for years, using a public cloud or your own virtual data centre will be a new experience. Our team has helped our customer’s provision over 5,000 servers on our data centres. That kind of experience can’t be found in most companies, or in every vCloud hosting provider.

Our goal is to apply our experience to your custom solution on our public cloud. We’ll get you up and running fast, provide information and training to your staff, or optionally fully manage your virtual data centre for you.

"We have been blown away with the support from Netplan technical resources."

Cloud hosting designed around you

Many cloud providers offer pre-packaged services and equipment. We design your cloud hosting solution around you and your business. Our focus remains firmly on you, and not just selling you access to equipment we already have in our datacentre. Every customer can expect the following benefits when you host your cloud with us:

Dedicated account manager

We can’t help you if we don’t get to know you. You’ll always have a single dedicated account manager who knows you and your business.

Built for growth and change

Companies expand, objectives change, new initiatives are started. Your vCloud public cloud can be designed, expanded or changed to meet your needs now and in the future.

Support through migration

Transitioning to a public cloud isn’t always easy. We don’t abandon you after the contract is signed. We’ll help manage the migration to keep you on schedule and budget as well as help you decide how much public cloud resources you need.

Access to VMware software suites

We use VMware vCloud enterprise edition to manage our public clouds. Every customer has access to the core suite of tools, with the ability to add on others. VMware license management can be a thing of the past.

Expertise always ready

Our staff of certified specialists in VMware, Windows, Linux, Cisco, and others are always on hand 24/7/365 to respond to support requests.

Guaranteed SLAs

We guarantee SLAs on uptime, latency and support response times. If we don’t meet the times or latency specified in your contract, we’ll give your money back.

Who’s managing the public cloud?

As a public cloud user, you don’t have to worry about managing the physical hardware of your IT infrastructure. Your service provider has that responsibility, which makes them as important, if not more important, than your choice of virtualisation platform.

We invest heavily into our infrastructure to ensure optimal performance and efficiency:

  • Enterprise NetApp SANs
  • Intel’s latest processors
  • A redundant architecture with no single point of failure
  • Proactive monitoring to ensure our 100% uptime and low latency SLAs
  • Hardware refresh policies in line with best practices

You can feel safe on Netplan’s public cloud knowing we’re working hard behind the scenes on monitoring, upgrading, logging, backups, and security.
