The onCloud facility in Atlanta, Georgia features multiple 10G Ethernet connections to key communications centers and multiple on-net carriers, eliminating the single-point-of-failure risk scenarios. As you would expect, we’re carrier-neutral with easy cross-connects directly from our Atlanta facility to over 100 providers.
onCloud’s network infrastructure employs dark fiber ring technology with connectivity at 56 Marietta, the Southeast’s most connected network hub. This provides you with reliable network access and fast performance, around the clock monitoring, notification and reporting. We maintain multiple direct connections to several network service providers including Tier-1 carriers guaranteeing your users uninterrupted service and significant bandwidth volumes. Our network architecture eliminates virtually all points of failure or network congestion.
Below is the list of configuration that consists of:
- 2 on-net carriers (XO & Level3), 2 carriers at 56 Marietta Street (nLayer, PCCW)
- Route optimized across all carriers (measuring latency, packet loss, jitter)
- Fiber ring to 56 Marietta Street supports up to 160 Gbps
- 10 Gigabit connection to Dallas, TX from Atlanta, GA data center
- DELL PowerEdge Servers
- DELL PowerVault SAS and SSD-backed SANs (storage area network)
- 2 Redundant Gigabit up-link Ethernet ports and 12 Gigabit backbones
- Redundant PDUs (power distribution units) connected to separate GA power
- Citrix XenServer controlled infrastructure connecting many pooled XenServer servers
- Multiple redundant pfSense Firewalls, VPN connectors and IDS (intruder detection systems)
onCloud’s virtualized infrastructure is deployed as multiple, highly secure clouds hosted in onCloud’s SAS 70/SSAE16 Type II compliant data center in Atlanta, GA. The infrastructure cloud includes the basic building blocks of a system service, including virtualized servers; Windows or Linux operating systems; SAN storage; redundant networking; built-in disaster recovery with geographically dispersed off-site backups; firewalls; and intruder detection systems. onCloud is created using enterprise grade technologies. We partner with leading providers in this industry including Microsoft, Citrix and DELL for software and hardware.
onCloud works closely with customers, setting up a hosted infrastructure cloud with pre- determined initial capacity. The cloud can be customized and optimized for an organization’s needs. Enterprises can scale server capacity and other resources to accommodate increased demand – while paying only for what they use.
From a self-managed sandbox to fully managed hybrid infrastructure, Enterprises can decide between vast arrays of configuration of the CyberCloud, depending upon their specific needs. Our configurations turned up from typical use cases which contain variety of managed services elements on top of the infrastructure cloud, delivered from our SSAE16 compliant data centers in the US.
For enterprises that need a robust test environment or production server resources with an in-house technical team, onCloud Sandbox offers a robust build-destroy- build environment for deploying multiple test environments, choosing from a range of operating systems, databases, and middleware. Multiple dedicated servers can be built out for development or production use. Full access to the systems are provided, with the ability to manage the actual server itself from the customer portal. Items such as reboots, snapshots and rollbacks can all be performed directly by the customer.
For enterprises that need a reliable production environment for their critical and complex applications, telecom, or whole infrastructure. onCloud Fully Managed offering includes fully monitored and managed infrastructure cloud along with various managed services such as network management, security management, disaster recovery, remove backups and intruder detection. This provides a dependable, redundant, IT environment ready to grow with changing needs.
With onCloud you get….
onCloud offers multiple benefits over a traditional infrastructure deployment model. It provides a combination of reliability, flexibility, cost efficiency, security, and control over infrastructure capacity, along with access to onCloud’s vast infrastructure expertise that keeps technology running 24x7.
Key onCloud Benefits
Guaranteed CAPEX and OPEX Savings
Customers don’t incur the large capital expenditures associated with building an in-house data center. Usage-based billing ensures that customers only pay for what they use. You “get a lot” without “paying a lot”. And, with a fixed pricing model that scales with growth forecasting IT expenditure just became a whole lot easier!
Fully Managed, Simplified IT Operations
The fully managed option delivers enterprise class, cloud-enabled IT environment while taking away the headaches and costs of running in-house data center. From resource provisioning and security management to operating system, network, and application management, we do it all for you – making your IT simpler and more efficient.
Built-in Business Continuity and Performance Manageability
Built-in disaster recovery; 24×7 monitoring and support; guaranteed service levels; and best in class infrastructure components.
More Efficient Resource Utilization
The virtualized slices of resources ensure enterprises buy what they need. This eliminates underutilization, while reducing server sprawl and associated operating costs. Instead of building new servers for expansion, increase the “horsepower” of what you already use.
Scalable Capacity on Demand
Resources can be provisioned quickly to meet growth or demand spikes. In many cases, this is as simple as an e-mail or phone call.
CyberCloud is hosted and monitored in a SAS 70 environment, and meets stringent security requirements. onCloud data center also controls greater Atlanta’s Emory Hospital Network allowing us to stand with the same benefits as a mission-critical hospital data center would offer.
