Virtual Data Center
IT start-ups, companies from the financial sector, retail, lovers of computer and stock exchange games, even the media — this is far from an incomplete list of projects for which we have prepared the Host-Telecom Virtual Data Center service.
Virtual infrastructure can be used for testing, pilot projects, and placing a ready-made web- or intracorporate service.
Quickly and simply (in a few clicks!) add power before the release of a new application or, if necessary, for the session of processing of large data sets.
Host-Telecom Virtual Data Center is:
Any possible configurations.
Any types of virtual machines, any operating system - Windows, Linux, etc.
Pay only for what you are using at the moment, the price can be up to 20% lower than that of Amazon.
Do not wait until the servers are ready. Choose the resources and start using it.
Resources with certain characteristics (processor core, memory size, network access) can be requested through the control panel or through a special API.
With our service, users can independently request and receive computing and network resources, storage tools without delays, the ability to contact the providers of related services.
You pay according to the "Pay as you go" model, only for really consumed resources: processor capacities, RAM, disk space, OS and software lease, an extension of the channel bandwidth.
The Host-Telecom Cloud portal provides users with a graphical interface for managing and monitoring cloud resources. Our clients have the opportunity to independently manage their infrastructure, define resource allocation policies and quickly access them within a few minutes.
How it works
Let's look at several scenarios for using the Host-Telecom Virtual Data Center.
Reducing the cost of IT infrastructure
As part of the decision to reduce IT costs, the company transferred to the cloud a payment system, billing components and a contact center.
The refusal to use physical infrastructure reduced the cost of managing the data center by 20%. The advantage of using a virtual data center is that the cost of owning virtual resources is significantly lower, compared to similar physical ones.
Increasing the reliability of IT infrastructure
The company has more than one hundred representative offices throughout the country. Each office housed a separate element of the overall IT infrastructure. When management thought about increasing the reliability of the entire fleet of computers, a cloud solution was chosen.
As a result, it was possible to replace 120 desktops with 6 servers. This became possible thanks to the use of virtualization technologies, and the entire server infrastructure fit into two data centers (20 racks each). Both data centers work in an active mode, but the second plays the role of a backup, so in the event of disconnection of one of the data centers, the company's work is not interrupted.
Timely provision of a rapidly growing company with IT resources
A startup that develops software can not predict in advance the amount of resources that will be required to effectively perform all tasks: allocating resources to development teams and testers, launching demonstration stands, etc.
Suddenly, it turned out that demand significantly exceeded the cautious expectations of business owners. The existing IT infrastructure has stopped coping with the ever-increasing load. Instead of a resource-intensive and costly upgrade, it was decided to move to a cloud platform that not only enabled a more efficient, manageable and scalable infrastructure, but also significantly reduced the cost of maintaining its efficiency.
