Private Cloud for Storage

Providing a highly scalable and cost effective consumption based storage solution

This service offers a dedicated storage, which provides increased performance consistency and data security over traditional multi-tenant public cloud storage options.

It is designed to be deployed as part of a larger solution to include genuine cloud services such as Azure, VMware, OpenStack and OpenShift. This enables you to leverage the benefits of UKCloud; even on infrastructure that is entirely dedicated to you.

Our Private Cloud – Storage removes these challenges by providing a highly-scalable, cost-effective, secure and consumption-based storage solution.

Private Cloud – Storage provides single-tenant storage Infrastructure as a Service. Your data is hosted in one of our UK data centres, to gain the benefits of our mature and proven Assured and Elevated cloud platforms; or in your Crown Hosting Data Centre (CHDC).

Private Cloud – Storage is designed to be deployed as part of a larger solution to include genuine cloud services such as Enterprise Compute Cloud, Cloud Native Infrastructure, Cloud Native Application Platform or Hadoop in the Cloud. This enables you to leverage the benefits of the UKCloud; even on infrastructure that is entirely dedicated to you.
