Private Cloud

corporate internet and network from home

The cloud where security meets flexibility

Our private cloud service truly gives you the best of both worlds. It takes the most important capabilities from the public cloud – scalability and functionality – and places them into a secure environment that’s dedicated to your business. With the qualities of the industry’s most advanced hybrid cloud platform, VMware Cloud Foundation, our Private Cloud solution is easy to deploy and easy to run.

Acronym’s private cloud offers data storage options – either Solid-State Drive (SSD) or Hard Disk Drive (HDD) – including:

  • SSD/Flash (Tier 0);
  • High-Performance HDD (Tier 1); and
  • Write-Optimized Archive HDD (Tier 2).

Why it matters

Most businesses are looking for performance and privacy from a private cloud environment. We offer exactly that. You’ll have the speed and flexibility of being in the public cloud while keeping your data isolated and secured from other organizations. 

This is especially beneficial for businesses that need to comply with strict data regulations—around privacy, storage, building applications and much more. With our private cloud solution, you get the scalability of the public cloud while managing risks by keeping data separate and secure.

As a result, you get a dedicated and secure environment with a familiar VMware management interface that enables customizable and scalable resource configurations. 

Our Virtual Private Cloud, powered by VMware, delivers powerful and reliable features and functionality, including:

Comprehensive data sovereignty

Acronym is Canadian owned and operated. So, your data will remain in the country and be covered by Canadian privacy laws.

Support for all carrier connectivity

We maintain strong relationships with all national carriers as well as several regional carriers so our clients have various connectivity options.

Scalable, high-performance infrastructure

Acronym’s service delivery infrastructure incorporates a “design to survive” methodology. This includes redundant network infrastructure and N+2 redundancy for storage infrastructure and compute to ensure high availability.

Fixed and predictable pricing

We are committed to full cost transparency. There’s no fine print, no hidden fees and no escalating usage charges. You’ll have 100% visibility into costs before you begin using our services.

Fully certified VMware stack and network suite capabilities

Our service delivery is VMware Cloud Verified, which offers enterprise-ready cloud infrastructure. It supports all facets of the VMware networking portfolio, with no constraints on your network design. Our clients also have the ability to bring their own hypervisor licence and run it on our private cloud platform.

Integrate your own assets

Our clients can incorporate their own servers and firewalls, which can then be connected to their private cloud infrastructure.

Working with Acronym, you can start with a cloud that’s the right size for your business. As your needs grow, we can help you scale, so you can easily deploy workloads to the cloud with the flexibility to move them between your on- and off-premise environments.
