Private cloud

 

Private cloud is a virtualization platform, built in our datacenter and dedicated to just one client. Private clouds offer the power, efficiency, and features of a public cloud, with the security, control, and performance of a dedicated environment. Infrastructure will be built according to each customer's needs.

VMWare or Xenserver based virtualization environment installed into dedicated servers allows for the client to easily create as many virtual servers as needed. Starting from a certain number of virtual servers, Private Cloud offers considerable savings and bigger control over servers and data. 

 

Servers
We use HP blade servers that have excellent quality-price ratio and are housed in our HP C7000 Blade centers. Hardware characterized by high quality and availability. 
 

Bladecenter chassis is powered by six redundant power supplies that are connected to different UPS units. UPS units receive power from different feeders that are in turn protected by a diesel generator.

Bladecenter’s duplicated 10GbE network interfaces are connected to Cisco Nexus 5000 series switches.

ILO Remote Management offers fully graphical IP KVM remote console for emergency management, virtual media and many other useful features.

Software
We use VMWare and Xenserver software.
 
AS VMWare Professional partners we have complete access to their technical resources. Our employees have finished VMware courses and possess relevant certificates. We can offer all VMWare licenses with discounted prices to our Private Cloud customers.
 
We also possess long-term experience in the development of cloud management platform Cloudstack based solutions and have launched a number of relevant projects.
 
We are also Microsoft SPLA partners, and offer all of their server and applications licenses.
Data storage and backups
All data can be stored in our HPE and EMC data storages where we use SSD/SAS drive arrays. SSD drives guarantee low latency and ultra-high performance. Other data storage solutions are also available. We offer SAS, SATA arrays, ISCSI/NFS and CIFS technologies.
 
The Private Cloud can be replicated and backed up to our off-site location in LinxTelecom data center. Such solution guarantees data preservation in case of a bigger accident. It is possible to start the cloud in the other location in just a few minutes.
 
We can help with migrating existing services/data to the Private Cloud.
Managed private cloud
Private clouds are complex to operate. They require experts who understand cloud architecture and know how to upgrade, patch, secure, monitor, and scale a cloud environment. Therefore we offer managed private cloud service. We take care of the infrastructure and management, giving you the cloud expertise you need so you can focus on your core business.
 
Hardware maintenance that comes with every server includes 24/7 hardware maintenance and support. Temperature and other important parameters of server modules and their components like RAM, CPU and storage are monitored and analyzed with special software 24/7.
 
Private cloud software management contract includes hypervisor and cloud control software constant management, monitoring and updates.

Private cloud with 1 physical server and a backup solution.

A smaller company needs three Windows servers and one Linux server. We can offer a virtualization solution based on one physical server. This solution lacks high availability but has backup and fast disaster recovery capabilities. VMware hypervisor software and Unitrend backups up to 1TB are free. In case of increased demand, several new Windows/Linux virtual servers can be deployed in minutes.

Backup software and copies of the virtual servers are kept on an external iSCSI network segment that is located outside of our data center. Even if the physical server is destroyed, it is possible to mount the iSCSI segment to a new VMware server and restore all virtual servers in 15-20 minutes.

We are official Microsoft SPLA partners and can offer Windows licenses. One license is limited for 4 processor cores. If the virtual server uses 4 cores, one 19€/month license is enough. 4-8 cores need two licenses etc.

Installation and configuration of virtualization and backup software is done free of charge. For 150€ we can migrate clients current physical Windows servers to the new private cloud infrastructure.

A cloud maintenance contract covering virtualization and backups management can be signed for 50€ per month. Monitoring of the whole infrastructure and if necessary also of virtual servers and applications is included in the contract. Monitoring notifications and access to the environment will also be provided to the customer. Operating systems and applications installed to the virtual servers are for the customer to administer and are not covered by the maintenance contract.

After deployment of our solution, the customer can stop running three physical servers in their office. Savings from electricity costs are already around 75€/month. There’s also no need to invest money into buying new server hardware.

Private cloud in a three server cluster and a backup system.

Solution for 20 Windows and 10 Linux virtual servers in a high availability cluster, running on 3 Xenserver physical hosts. If one of the three hosts fails, high availability functionality allows to start all the virtual servers affected by the crash in the other two hosts. If two hosts fail, critical virtual servers will be started on the remaining healthy host.

Simultaneous failure of multiple hosts is very unlikely because all the physical servers are located in different Blade Center systems.

A backup and disaster recovery system is being used to ensure bigger data safety. The system constantly replicates data between two different data storages and allows to get a faulty virtual server back online in around 15 minutes. In case of a serious data storage failure, it will take about 1-2 hours to get all the virtual servers back online. To make the system even more reliable, safety copies of all the data are also saved to iSCSI network segment located outside of our data center.

Installation and configuration of the virtualization software is done free of charge. There are several different Backup and Disaster Recovery solutions available. T Final system will be designed in accordance with the client’s needs/wishes.

During project implementation we will train client’s system administrator to migrate all the existing services/data from public cloud or physical servers to the new private cloud.

A 150€/month maintenance contract can be signed to manage the three virtualization hosts. Monitoring of the whole infrastructure and if necessary also of virtual servers and applications is included in the contract. Monitoring notifications and access to the environment will also be provided to the customer.

By deploying our solution the customer can stop paying for at least 30 virtual servers currently hosted in a public cloud. Private cloud is at least two times less expensive and allows much greater control over servers and data.

Private cloud in three high-end server cluster and offsite replication.

Solution is designed for 50 Windows and 100 Linux virtual servers in high availability cluster consisting of three VMware hosts.

If one of the three hosts fails, high availability functionality allows to automatically start all the virtual servers affected by the crash in the other two hosts. If two hosts fail, critical virtual servers will be started on the remaining healthy host. Server load is constantly monitored and dynamically shared between the hosts. Running virtual servers are moved from host to host to ensure that load is evenly distributed among all of the hypervisors.

Simultaneous failure of multiple hosts is very unlikely because all the physical servers are located in different Blade Center systems.

To ensure maximum data safety, every 15 minutes, all virtual servers are replicated to a smaller cluster located in a secondary data center. It takes around 5 minutes to start a damaged virtual server in the new location. To start all the virtual servers in the secondary data center will take 1-2 hours.

We help to choose and install the virtualization software free of charge. We also provide technical consultations.

A 150€/month maintenance contract can be signed to manage the three virtualization hosts. Monitoring of the whole infrastructure and if necessary also of virtual servers and applications is included in the contract. Monitoring notifications and access to the environment will also be provided to the customer.

By deploying our solution the customer can stop using servers currently hosted in a public cloud as well as abandon an obsolete server cluster that was installed in their office. Private cloud allows to significantly reduce monthly running costs and avoid a big investment to upgrade the obsolete server hardware.
