Our Virtual Data Centre 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 deal with the headaches of working with major cloud providers and sacrifice their business’ capital to break into the cloud industry.
Powered by VMware
Our Virtual Data Centres are powered by the latest virtualisation technologies from VMware which enables enterprise features such as high availability.
Backup Option – Powered by Veeam
With our Veeam powered backups you have complete control over your Restore Point Objectives (RPOs) – down to 15 minutes. All of which is backed by our 24/7 support team.
Rodin Business Solutions Leverages Hosted Network’s Virtual Data Centre in Selling Flexible and Cost-Effective Cloud Services
I had no interest in building and managing our own cloud. Standing up your own and building it, there’s an investment and you have to get a return on that investment. Being able to use Hosted Network and slowly build up as we needed was fantastic!
– Aaron Jacobs Former General Manager, RODIN Business Solutions
What makes our Virtual Data Centre different from the major providers?
Predictable AUD billing
Unlike competitors such as Azure and AWS who charge per-instance and bill hourly, our Virtual Data Centre is resource-based and billed monthly. This allows you to pay for what you use and easily increment resources. For example, increase to 1GB RAM instead of jumping to the next instance and pricing tier.
With no effect to Foreign exchange (FX) changes and burst in consumption, you can better manage your budget and avoid cost blowouts.
Free migration and delayed billing
Our team of engineers will migrate any existing workloads that are either on-premise or with another cloud provider into your Virtual Data Centre at no cost.*
Additionally, we offer delayed billing for monthly service costs of qualified projects, to ensure a smooth transition so you can focus on providing a great experience for your customers.
Built-in high availability
All Virtual Machines running in one of our Virtual Data Centres are protected from both network and computer 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 you and your customers’ productivity.
Optionally you can also replicate between sites for a complete end-to-end Disaster Recovery (DR) solution.
Enterprise storage options
Choose from either Bronze (NL-SAS), Silver, (SSD), or Gold (NVME) 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 migrate to a different storage tier!
Free standard and 24/7 emergency support
Be able to speak to someone and get things actioned promptly whenever you need it.
