Breath of fresh air! Such a responsive and knowledgeable support team. Been with Hyve for over a year now, every time I request help I’m blown away!
Recently switched from UKFast to Hyve. So far such a fantastic experience, the support team helped migrate and sort out all initial hickups. Onto a roaring new start with the brand spankimg new shiny high availability server :)
Our skilled solutions architects design your bespoke private cloud from scratch to suit your individual hosting requirements. We also provide a fully managed set up of your platform as standard with continued management and maintenance of your systems.
You’ll get a fully managed private cloud infrastructure, running on our high availability VMware platform. Our private cloud has dedicated HP blades to host VMs and dedicated storage with lightning fast HP 3PAR SANs. All solutions can be set up to run across multiple data centres for disaster recovery.
Experience complete control over your own data and applications. Hyve’s private cloud keeps sensitive information locked down, ensuring that your data is secure. You get full control of every aspect of your infrastructure, but we’re here to help if needed, for added peace of mind.
Customer service is at the heart of everything that we do. By working in small teams we ensure that our support team are 100% familiar with your needs, allowing us to offer the highest levels of support and make hosting simple for you.
We offer a ‘direct-to-engineer’ service, meaning that when you contact us, you aren’t passed around support tiers. Instead, you will get straight through to an expert who knows your solution inside out and can solve your issue or action your request.
VMware HA is a powerful feature providing high availability to all servers on the Hyve cloud. In the event of a physical server or operating system failure, VMware HA automatically reboots the affected virtual machines onto other production servers with spare capacity.
VMware vMotion enables the live migration of running virtual machines between physical servers with zero downtime, continuous service availability, and complete transaction integrity.
VMware DRS (Distributed Resources Scheduler) continuously monitors resource utilisation across VMware hosting servers and intelligently allocates available resources among VMware virtual machines according to business needs.
VMware DPM (Distributed Power Management) continuously optimises power consumption in the data centre by powering down and up hosts based on power requirements. This allows us to reduce outgoings and pass these savings onto our clients. A system running DPM is also better for the environment.
As a VMware partner, we have access to the highest quality training along with VMware software such as vCloud Director.
Our VMware enterprise plus licensing allows us to offer up to 40CPU cores and 256GB RAM per cloud server. This can be upgraded to 88 cores and 2 TB of RAM at an additional cost.
When choosing where to host your data, it is important to consider where your end-user is located. The shorter the journey to the data centre, the better the performance will be. With 35 global locations to choose from you can ensure you close proximity to your customers, guaranteeing low latency.
Security is the backbone of our business. Therefore, to protect your business against malicious attacks, we have an extensive suite of security features available. We include 1GB of DDoS protection with every plan, at no additional cost. Many hosting providers will charge for this service.
Our data centres all offer multiple layers of redundancy for power and cooling, from a minimum of N+1 at some sites, right through to N+N at others. Power is fed diversely from separate national grids with UPS and on-site generators available to take over where necessary, ensuring no drop in service.
Whilst a lot of our competitors offer a 20-30 minute SLA, this is for the response times of requests. If you select our recommended HPE BladeSystem servers, we can guarantee any faulty hardware will be identified, resolved and fixed within 20 minutes.
We only offer high-availability platforms. We offer replication and load balancing across data centres. This means that if there is a fatal incident at one DC, your traffic can automatically be routed to a secondary location in a matter of seconds.
Our UK-based support team are here to support your machine and make complex hosting simple. We got rid of tiered support, so when you call, you get straight through to your dedicated technical support engineer who will be ready to help you immediately.
Private cloud is an on-demand cloud deployment model where hardware is solely dedicated to the needs of an individual client or organisation. Private cloud is one of the three most common forms of cloud deployments, alongside its public cloud and hybrid cloud counterparts. Although all three forms of cloud models share a number of similarities, private cloud differs substantially on a number of core characteristics. These include:
Private cloud uses virtualization technology to create multiple virtual instances of a physical machine. The difference with private cloud compared to public cloud is that the computing resources are exclusive to a single organization and are not shared with other tenants. However the ins and outs of how private cloud works changes between the types of private cloud:
Private cloud would be well suited to industries that need higher levels of security. For example, finance or government, who have complex computing needs that require direct control over their environments, typically to meet security or regulatory compliance requirements.
Private cloud delivers similar advantages to public cloud, such as scalability. However, due to the personalised nature of private cloud solutions, they provide users with a unique set of benefits. These include:
With on-premise infrastructure, your applications and data will be located on-site, which poses many security risks and can be costly to maintain. Private cloud is usually housed within secure, compliant, off-site data centre and managed by a third-party hosting provider.
