Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is the most straightforward of cloud services, it is the virtual delivery of servers and resources in the form of hardware, network and storage services. This enables our partners to leverage our hardware/software resources rather than having to sacrifice their business’s capital to break into the cloud industry.
Powered by VMware
Our Virtual Data Centers are powered by the latest virtualisation technologies from VMware which enables enterprise features such as High Availability.
We were enticed to the people first of all, then the technology after that – they got what we wanted to achieve … the gut feeling straight away was that we wanted to work with these guys!
Unlike competitors such as Azure and AWS who charge on a per-instance basis and bill hourly, our Virtual Data Center is billed on the pooled resources so you’re only paying for the example resources that you use. Additionally, we provide monthly billing so you know example what charges to expect – making it easier to budget and avoid cost blowouts.
Our team of engineers will migrate any existing workloads that are either on-premise or with another cloud provider into your Virtual Data Center at no cost to you.

All Virtual Machines running in one of our Virtual Data Centers are protected from both network and compute hardware failures. In the event that a compute node dies, your workloads will automatically reboot elsewhere in the cluster – minimising service disruption and impact to your productivity.
Optionally you can also replicate between sites for a complete end to end DR solution.
Have multiple customers or departments all managed and control from a single pane of glass with granular permissions that can also be connected to Single Sign On (SSO) offerings for centralised access control.
Enterprise Storage Options
Choose from either Bronze (SATA), Silver, (SAS), or Gold (SSD) storage options for each of your Virtual Machine disks, allowing you to balance the cost of storage vs performance that fits your individual workloads needs. If you need to change later – don’t worry – you can live migrate to a different storage tier!
Our Virtual Data Center offering promises 24×7 emergency support should you experience any issues with your service that can’t be corrected via our control panel. For standard support, we are available during business hours to resolve any issues that may arise.
Backups – Powered by Veeam
Backups are powered by Veeam Enterprise Plus, giving you complete self-service control over your backup and restore of Virtual Machines, guest operating system files, databases (MS SQL / Oracle), Active Directory and more. With our Veeam powered backups you have complete control over your Restore Point Objectives (RPO’s) – down to 15 minutes. All of which is backed by our 24/7 support team.
Simple Intuitive Self Service Interface
Unlike our larger competitors where you need qualified engineers to run and manage environments, our Virtual Data Centers keep things simple while not sacrificing on power or performance. All of our VDCs are manable from a simple to use web interface that provides you full control and visibility over your virtual workloads.
Australian Data Centers
Choose from either Sydney or Melbourne facilities or have virtual workloads run out of both!
