What private cloud services does UKCloud offer?
UKCloud offers a variety of private cloud products for those organisations with workloads that need to be in a single-tenant environment.
The following provides a brief overview of our managed operations products; click the links for further details.
- Private Cloud. A high assurance, cost-effective alternative to hosting and managing your own compute and storage infrastructure. This secure single-tenant cloud platform provides physical hardware separation and isolation from other customers. Offered on a choice of technology stacks, including VMware, Microsoft Azure Stack, Oracle Virtual Machine, Oracle Cloud at Customer or Red Hat OpenStack implementations. We can deploy Private Cloud in either of our UK data centres to gain the benefits of our Assured and Elevated security domains, within the Crown Campus or within your own data centre.
- Private Cloud for Oracle Software. Enables you to have private implementations of Oracle's Engineered Systems within UKCloud's assured, sovereign data centres, Crown Hosting Data Centres or even on premises. It enables you to have a tailored Oracle environment specifically for the high performance or big data analytical platforms that are proprietary to Oracle, while connecting to workloads that you have within the rest of our multi-cloud ecosystem.
- Private Cloud Storage. Provides a secure single-tenant storage platform that is a cost-effective alternative to hosting and managing your own storage infrastructure. Designed to be deployed as part of a larger solution to include genuine multi-cloud services such as UKCloud for VMware and UKCloud for OpenStack, this service enables you leverage the benefits of the UKCloud platform, even on infrastructure that is entirely dedicated to your organisation.
- Dedicated Compute v2. A flexible solution designed for when you need guaranteed performance. This service delivers exceptional performance through dedicated compute hosts and meets your security obligations by addressing compliance and regulatory requirements through physical separation of workloads. Hosts are assigned for your sole use and are enabled for granular configuration to meet your workload requirements.
