VMware Technology at Safe Swiss Cloud


The Enterprise Cloud product is based on industry standard VMware technology. Safe Swiss Cloud uses the VMware Cloud Director on top of VMware to provide its customers with a web based graphical user interface (GUI) which allows them to manage their cloud resources in an intuitive way:

  • Virtual LANs (internal networks)
  • Servers (VMs)
  • Storage volumes (100% redundant, clustered SSD)
  • Snapshots
  • VPNs (site to site as well as SSL)
  • Firewalls
  • Access management for the infrastructure management portal

and lots more.

Most enterprise customers are already familiar with VMware. For customers with existing VMware infrastructure, it is easy to transfer workloads (VMs) from one VMware installation to another. Customers can even treat their Enterprise Cloud as an extension of their in house (on premise) infrastructure. 

Enterprise Cloud based on VMware is characterised by a very high degree of redundancy in:

  • Server hardware
  • Network switches
  • Storage media (SSDs) and storage servers
  • Internet connections 
  • Backups (Veeam)
  • Electricity supply
  • Uninterruptible power supply (UPS)
  • Diesel generators that allow the data centres to keep operating for weeks in case of a total power failure

Enterprise Cloud provides its customers a self service backup portal, from where they can setup and manage their backups and restores using the industry leading Veeam software. Backups are always made to a different data center from the one where the VMs are running and the backups are mirrored to at least one additional data centre.  

The data centre, server and network redundancy as well as the backups to multiple data centres, provide an excellent foundation for business continuity and disaster recovery (DR) planning, a must have for enterprise customers, especially those providing “system relevant” services like hospitals, banks etc.

Frequently Asked Questions


Important questions and answers about our Enterprise Cloud

How can I learn how to use Enterprise Cloud?

Safe Swiss Cloud‘s Enterprise Cloud is based on VMware’s Cloud Director (formerly vCloud Director).

The VMware Cloud Director Tenant Portal is your interface to create and manage virtual machines and virtual networks.

Check out this introduction video from VMware about Working with Virtual Machines:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G570B_rJOFE

What sort of redundancy do you offer for your servers?

Safe Swiss Cloud maintains sufficient extra capacity to allow its cloud systems to survive outages due to defects in individual physical nodes (servers).

Virtual machines (VMs) which were running on a physical node (hypervisor) with a defect are simply restarted on another physical node.

What sort of redundancy do you provide for your storage volumes?

All storage volumes at Safe Swiss Cloud are provisioned on redundant data storage clusters (SAN), providing the following types of redundancy:

Redundant storage media: if an SSD has a defect, customers will not notice anything and processing will continue as normal. Safe Swiss Cloud will replace the defective storage device in the background without downtime.

Redundant storage node: if a storage node has a defect, customers will not notice anything and processing will continue as normal. Safe Swiss Cloud will replace the defective storage device in the background without downtime.

The use of 100% clustered block storage based on SSDs ensures maximum reliability, uptime and performance.

Do you offer SSD (flash) storage?

Yes. In fact our default storage category is 100% SSD based.

Do you offer a dedicated private cloud solution?

Yes, we do.

Many enterprise customers want their own dedicated private cloud solution. We create custom specified VMware based dedicated private clouds based on our customer’s requirements.

In this model, the smallest unit is a physical node (server) and customers specify how many they need (minimum 3). Once setup, customers get access to their dedicated cloud via VMware Cloud Director (formerly vCloud Director) or via VMware vCenter (minimum 8 nodes).

Do you offer a dual data center solution?

Yes, we do.

We offer a fully automated dual data center solution, which auto detects if one data center has gone down and automatically brings up all Virtual Machines (VMs) running in the affected data center in the other data center.

Safe Swiss Cloud’s redundant network layer notices the switch over and makes sure that when the VMs come up in the other data center, that they have the same IP addresses.
