- Do you have detailed documentation for Enterprise Cloud?
How can I learn how to use Enterprise Cloud?
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:
Do you support software defined networking (SDN)?
Yes, all out clouds offer software defined networking (SDN).
This allows you to create your own networks and rules of access to each network and between them.
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.
Do you support site-to-site VPNs?
Yes we do.
You can run IPSec tunnels with a multitude of encryption and other options in all our clouds.
Everything is fully software configurable.
You can also run your preferred software network appliance (firewall, router, web application firewall etc.) in your own Virtual Machine (VM) and use it for all the network functionality you need.
