Can your company afford not to have a Private Cloud?

Private Clouds can be the only possible solution for many different reasons. Companies often have their own agenda which could be to meet IT Security policies, absolute control of infrastructure, hosting critical business operations, or a combination of all three. Whatever the reason the cost of designing, implementing, hosting and supporting a Private Cloud is expensive and as such, in order to reduce costs, may be designed in a way to not meet all internal requirements or may never be developed at all. In which case difficult company decisions have to be made. For example, obtaining a security waiver to host business critical services on a Public Cloud and manage the risks associated with this. There is bound to be a level of resistance, and rightly so. What will your investors think? Their opinion may be even stronger than your Chief Security Officer’s.

The initial size of a Private Cloud solution varies on the size of the initial project budget but as a minimum, compute, memory, storage and network services need to cater for the short-term requirement and be designed to be vertically scaleable, allowing for future expansion; growth.

Main stream Private Cloud solution suppliers generally offer, as a minimum, a hefty Enterprise class block of infrastructure. SAN or NAS storage, fibre network capability and high density compute and memory.

  • What if your company does not require an Enterprise class Private Cloud but could still benefit from a smaller scale Private Cloud Solution?
  • What if your requirements can be catered for by a single appliance of high density compute, memory and storage?

Your business still desires a supported solution for peace of mind so a Commercial-Off-The-Shelf solution is sought.

ScaleCloud® appliances are within budget of Small and Medium sized businesses.

Small to Medium sized businesses have modest budgets and although they recognise research and development is key to progress their business and win market position in what may be a tough sector cost of their internal IT  systems typically weighs heavily when budget holders are making strategic decisions.

The same can be said of Large to Enterprise sized businesses too now. All company budgets are being squeezed and projects prioritised in order to obtain best value for money and highest Return On Investment.

The Private Cloud solution built on our ScaleCloud® appliance is designed to be cost effective, efficient, powerful and functional. It’s designed to be affordable. We wanted to develop a solution that would enable Start-Ups, Small and Medium sized businesses to begin utilising cloud services of their own, take control of their own business critical DevOps infrastructure and get on the cloud development ladder.

Upon ordering a ScaleCloud® appliance from Innovate IT Ltd we will liaise with you, our customers, to pre-configure the core network components before shipping. Once received at your office or data centre the packaging is removed, ScaleCloud® is racked, plugged in to power and network and ready to  start creating Cloud Servers.
