Obtain the best in enterprise class computing without the cost.
Total’s Private Cloud Platform offers virtual machines (VM) managed to achieve 99.99%+ availability, with the flexibility to scale up or down every month. You benefit from using state of the art infrastructure, paying only for what you need and highly competitive pricing.
This service provides you with a flexible, easy and cost effective way of providing the compute resource you need to run your systems.
Developing and operating your own data centres is costly. All the more so if you build-in effective back-up and fully functional DR. Total’s Private Cloud Platform gives you flexible access to enterprise class cloud computing, to either augment or replace your existing data centre (DC).
With Total’s Private Cloud Platform you benefit from:
What Total do Total provides you with managed, highly available virtual machines in a highly resilient logical DC.
Two physically separate, best in class DCs are connected, with multi-path Tier 1 connectivity, to create a single logical DC, with automatic failover between the physical DCs.
Within each DC an identical technology stack comprises:
Virtual machines can be provided in five standard sizes and combined to suit your needs.
Each is a fully committed (ie uncontended) resource dedicated to your use, replicated in each physical DC.
This is managed to achieve a minimum of 99.99% availability (measured up to and including the hypervisor) across both data centres (ie the measure includes the inter-DC connectivity) with:
Data backup is retained for 30 days with a Recovery Time Objective (RTO) of 1 hour and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) of 15 minutes. However, the retention policy can be adapted to meet your specific needs with typical options including the addition of 4 weekly and 11 monthly updates and this plus the addition of 5 yearly updates.
Optionally, you can extend Total’s management of your Private Cloud Platform to include support and management of your Operating System as well key applications:
Microsoft licences can be provided under a Services Provider Licence Agreement (SPLA) which means that licences can be paid for monthly according to usage.
Alternatively, if you have existing licences under an Enterprise Agreement or Software Assurance you will have licence mobility and can move these to the cloud.
Successful service delivery assumes your existing server infrastructure is VMware virtualised (otherwise a migration assessment is required) and high performance connectivity to Total’s DC.
Total’s Private Cloud Platform combines technical expertise, investment in Tier 1 technologies and service delivery excellence with very attractive prices.
A holistic design brings networking, connectivity and infrastructure together to combine two physical DCs into a single logical DC, enabling seamless, live replication. This compares with the approach taken by most other UK providers which operate a single DC combined with a secondary technology, such as storage replication, to make an out of sync copy to a secondary DC.
The service is delivered to ISO 9001, 14000, 20000 and 27001 requirements (certifications pending).
