Different workloads have different requirements. Whether hosted or on-premise, a private cloud is built for purpose which makes it ideal for workloads with data sovereignty and security concerns.

It also affords more opportunities for automation than legacy systems – and a software-defined data centre delivers the features of a public cloud to an on-premise environment.

Our online assessment will reveal how your workloads impact each other and help you optimise your IT environment for the easiest and fastest path to hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) and hybrid cloud. Get started now with a free, non-intrusive assessment that runs offline without making system modifications.

Cloud Optimised Hybrid Networks

Cloud-based network intelligence makes it possible to quickly, easily and securely adapt a network to the new cloud-oriented traffic flows. SD-WAN is better at handling the changing network traffic patterns that result from cloud computing and provides a simpler and more cost-effective way to deploy and manage remote branch office connectivity. Remote users will see significant improvements in their experience when using Cloud/SaaS-based applications through SD-WAN. 

SD-WAN VeloCloud technology is a scalable answer for your application strategy, delivering high-performance, reliable branch access to cloud services, private data centres and SaaS-based enterprise applications.

You can leverage your WAN architecture for branch office agility and enhanced app performance by having your SD-WAN delivered by the cloud. This allows you to build and manage a secure WAN over any physical connectivity from any site. All traditional network functions are delivered as cloud services, making complex hardware configurations at each site a thing of the past. 

Choose an operational model to suit your organisation

Reduce management overheads and streamline operational processes with a solution managed by us or leverage a simple hardware-as-a-service model and manage it yourself.


Both options include:

Architecture based on best practices

Implementation in our data centres or on your premises

Opex model

We partner with the best to help you do more
