Private cloud hosting which can also be called “dedicated cloud hosting” is something quite different from the more well known types of hosting we are more familiar with! While a public cloud can afford greater flexibility, with all resource delivered as a service and billed by the hour, a private cloud gives you the advantage of greater control over the entire stack, from the bare metal up to the services accessible to users.
When you host within a private cloud, you effectively lease your own cloud which is not shared with anyone else and as a client of Vanquish, you’ll find that your organisation has much more flexibility and control over your servers. The Managed Private Cloud is designed to ensure maximum agility and performance. As with all Cloud Hosting, you benefit from increased performance, guaranteed uptime and no more costs spent on IT assets, maintenance, storage and cooling. By moving from a CapEx to an OpEx model, you’ll never have to invest in any servers again.
A managed private cloud from Vanquish is one of the best ways for businesses to take advantage of the benefits of Cloud Hosting without the hassles of managing your servers. Let us take care of your servers so that you can concentrate on running your business. Critical business applications such as email, Sage, CRM and Hosted VoIP can now be moved into the secure cloud. Don’t worry if you’ve got a bespoke app either – we specialise in migrating all types of servers into the Cloud. Adopting a proactive approach, we can ensure that you stay ahead of technology and are working on the latest equipment. We can also manage your virtual desktops to ensure that your user’s data is stored centrally and that you maintain complete interoperability between your user applications.
A hybrid cloud is an integrated cloud service utilising both private and public clouds to perform distinct functions within the same organisation. Public cloud infrastructures are deemed more cost effective than private clouds. With the introduction of the hybrid, an organisation can maximise their efficiencies by integrating public cloud services for all non-sensitive operations, only relying on a private cloud for their most critical of applications.
Hybrid CloudIn practice, an enterprise could implement hybrid cloud hosting to host their e-commerce website within a private cloud, where it is secure and scalable, but their brochure site in a public cloud, where it is more cost effective (and security is less of a concern). Alternatively, an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering, for example, could follow the hybrid cloud model and provide a financial business with storage for client data within a private cloud, but then allow collaboration on project planning documents in the public cloud – where they can be accessed by multiple users from any convenient location.

In a challenging economic landscape, businesses are having to change rapidly to respond to new market opportunities; changing customer demands; pressure from competitors and accelerating rates of innovation. These changes are being performed against a background of cost reduction, limited human resources, financial turmoil and a on-going transformation to increase in-house staff productivity.
The IT department has a key role in delivering against these challenges and they need to be able to react quicker, scale precisely and accurately predict costs to meet the new business demands. However, current IT infrastructure approaches are not sufficient to meet this because they lack the ability to scale capacity and cost up and down with changing demand.
Our enterprise IaaS allows your IT department respond at the speed that the other business divisions are responding to the demands on them without the risk of overloading. It removes the typical delays for procuring IT hardware and software and it also relieves the IT department of the demand for technical staff to perform the basic work of setting up servers. All of this is transformed to a simple, manageable process; allowing you to run your business without shortage of IT assets or waiting for them to be made ready. Virtual Cloud from Skye provides clear pricing that allows budget holders and line managers to understand and forecast costs for projects. Our service offers pay-as-you-go pricing based on hourly or monthly rates that allows line managers to align costs with the changing demands of their business activity.
