Private cloud capabilities

Private cloud infrastructure
  • Choose your own platform
  • Dedicated hardware for specific projects
  • Dedicated channels
  • Deployment in multiple connected data centers
  • Choose your hardware vendor and data storage system
  • Software licensing
  • Backups in remote data centers

Important notice

Within a private cloud infrastructure development, the pricing of software licenses buying can be just as high as the hardware costs. Some companies are sensitive to it. If it's about your budget, too, we can help you cut the expenses using the software license rent option. But if you have already purchased licenses, you definitely can install them in your private cloud.

QUALITY GUARANTEE

Tech support 24/7

Our tech support team is always available and ready to assist you with any questions or issues you may have. We also assist our clients with migration from their local IT infrastructure to SIM-Cloud.

Certified data centers

Your cloud infrastructure will be located in ISO/IEC 27001-certified data centers located in Karlsruhe, Germany. This will ensure the high availability of your cloud services.

Fault tolerance

Fault tolerance is guaranteed due to reserve resources and 2N+1 communication channels. Hardware failures don’t affect the IT systems in the data center.

Improved performance

CPUs with a base frequency of 2,3-2,6 GHz are used for basic tasks. SIM-Cloud also offers high-performing CPUs with a base frequency of 3,3 GHz for more complex tasks.

FAQ

What is a private cloud?
The private cloud is an isolated cloud infrastructure used by one client only. This means that scaling and deployment of resources are only limited by the needs of a given business and the limitations of the hardware itself. No need to share resources with other users. Development environments and data analysis tools in the agricultural sector are both good examples of the private cloud.
What kind of business will the private cloud be suitable for?
The private cloud is a good choice for any business that requires a solution specific to its particular needs, flexibility in terms of configuration and high-level data security. Your business will benefit from using the private cloud if you require more customization capabilities that the public cloud has to offer. Private clouds are also used in spheres that demand extra attention to data security, such as: banks, various institutions in the public sector, medical and telecom businesses, IT companies etc.
What goes into the pricing of a private cloud?
The price of a private cloud depends on the volume of resources a given client requires, as well as their choice of hardware. This includes: hardware configuration, cloud architecture, storage capacity, RAM, CPUs etc.
What is a virtual private cloud?
A virtual private cloud (VPC) is an isolated segment of a public cloud used by one client only. This isolation is done through the use of a private IP subnetwork. Essentially, this segment functions like a private cloud while being located on the provider’s public infrastructure. Virtual networks (including VLAN) and encrypted channels are used for connection.
Public vs private cloud: what’s the difference?
The scalability and configuration capabilities of the public cloud have an upper limit due to multi tenancy, unlike the private cloud which is created and managed with consideration of the needs of a specific company. While the risk of data leaks or data loss is extremely low in the public cloud, private cloud solutions offer additional security. This is why the private cloud is better suited for sensitive data or critically important services.
How do I build a private cloud?
If you want to build a private cloud, your best bet would be to entrust a dedicated team of experts who can create the exact kind of cloud your business needs with this task.
Is it safe to store data in the private cloud?
Private cloud architecture is one of the most secure cloud solutions. Security is ensured by the total isolation of your infrastructure, as well as additional measures offered by providers. This is why secure private clouds are often used for critically important and confidential data.

Public VS Private cloud


The public cloud is a collection of publically-available resources under centralized management. The term “public” implies nothing but the fact that these resources can be used by multiple clients; there is no interaction between users whatsoever.


The private cloud is a physically isolated independent pool of resources from multiple virtual machines integrated into a single architecture. This pool is used for deploying a given company’s corporate solutions.


In other words, private cloud rental provides a separate solution tuned to the client’s specific needs while storing it on isolated hardware in a data center. This solution ensures that the user gets the highest level of confidentiality and control.


The private cloud is created from scratch according to specifications provided by the client; it exists autonomously and is only ever used by its owner. While building the cloud, the hardware is ordered according to the client’s individual needs. For that reason, private clouds are often more expensive than public ones.


Data security is ensured by the hardware itself, as well as on a physical level. Authorized remote access to the private cloud is only possible through a secure connection based on a site-to-site VPN tunnel and IPsec.


All of SIM-Network’s cloud infrastructure is located in Tier III and Tier III+ data centers in Germany. They are certified according to ISO27001, the European data center security, building and management standard and regularly confirm their certificates. This guarantees that everything in the data center is completely isolated from the outside world. Authorized access to the premises of the data center is regulated by reliable systems.
