Virtual Data Centre

The undeniable benefits of cloud networking

Now, more than ever, businesses of all sizes are teeming with new applications and data, data and more data. But because of this surge, physical data centre resources are being stretched thin – and traditional data centres aren’t just losing their popularity. They’re losing their effectiveness.

Virtual Data Centres (VDC) are the way forward. They’re easy to deploy, cost effective, secure, scalable and reliable.

Powered by VMware, our VDC offers virtual computing capabilities that readily scale up and out in any ratio you need.

And it’s all found in one agile, robust and flexible cloud-based platform. Plus, you can pair our VDC with one of our backup services for the most complete solution possible.

Why it matters

As digital transformation progresses – with more interconnected services, cloud providers, the Internet of Things (IoT), edge services and SaaS offerings – traditional physical data centres will have fewer benefits and even more drawbacks.

By 2025, 40% of newly procured premises based compute and storage will be consumed as a service, up from less than 10% in 2021.

How it works

Acronym’s VDC allows your assets to be segmented and isolated securely in a multi-tenant environment. This provides the ultimate in both flexibility and scalability. Our solution is resource based, with no oversubscription or virtual machine host-sizing. That means you can combine computing and storage resources and deploy them in the way that makes the most sense for you. Plus, we offer three different levels of storage: SSD/Flash (Tier 0); HighPerformance HDD (Tier 1); and Write-Optimized Archive HDD (Tier 2).
