Our Platform

Aggregating cloud computing services for small and medium-sized businesses
Our cloud computing platform is built to offer a wide range of hosted business services. To deliver these services to a guaranteed availability of 99.99%, an infrastructure which is versatile, scalable and highly resilient is required. To best explain the platform, we have a diagram of the layers involved.
There are 5 logical layers involved in the stack, which enable actual real services to be deployed and managed. Click here to zoom into the diagram left. Each layer can be adapted and expanded to encompass new technologies and solutions, but ensure a simple way of provisioning, management and billing.

Intelligence Abstraction
In its basic form, the brains behind creating and delivering services and resources. This layer talks with virtualization and clustering grid service controllers to generate services such as desktops, VOIP systems, Exchange etc. from the right location, for the right customer. This layer also manages the billing of plans/services and gives end-users access to configure these services once provisioned.

Operating System
The operating system which is stretched over the set of resources allocated. Currently Windows and Linux are the two options customers can create, but these can inhabit the same networks for a heterogeneous environment.

Virtualization Layer
Virtualization and clustering are two ways of generating pools of resources from which services can be deployed and launched. Virtualization allows the scaling up and down of elements such as CPU on the fly and, once plugged into the IA layer, allows this to be done via a GUI and billed. This layer also self-heals by moving resources around the grids and data centers to maintain quality of service.

No data is stored on servers or blades. Instead, all data is stored on Storage Area Networks (SANs). These high powered enterprise devices allow for image roll back, secure access and replication across sites for redundancy. Elastic LUNs give users the ability to dial up the required resources at any time, as well as to mount storage to any resource, anywhere, anytime.

Our points of presence in data centers around the world. We are bringing new locations on line all the time. However, since the services are internet-based, We operate 6 carriers per data center to deliver high speed access wherever you are in the world.
