We know that migrating and deploying cloud solutions can be a complex task, and that day-to-day management requires both a high level of technical expertise and resources. That’s why our experts build and manage your cloud platform for you.
Hyve’s managed cloud bridges the gap between standard and premium by providing the ease of scale and cost savings of public cloud infrastructure, but with added security and monitoring. Experience high performance, reliability and scalability that outperforms the competition.
We invest in industry-leading hardware, equipped with powerful resources to make your business shock-proof. Our managed cloud runs on VMware – the market leader in server virtualisation software – and has high availability built-in. Using HPE BladeSystem architecture, we guarantee 99.999% uptime on all virtual machines, keeping your business always-on.
Need a solution that can handle a high workload? With a network of up to 1TB and HP 3PAR tiered storage arrays as standard, our managed cloud is well suited to customers with high I/O requirements. Enjoy the industry’s fastest storage and 100% network availability without paying the premium.
Where many public cloud providers charge a premium for full management or require a third-party to step in, all of our solutions are fully managed by our UK-based, 24/7/365, support team as standard. We also offer free migration, set-up and configuration with all of our cloud solutions.
Our ‘direct-to-engineer’ service, means that when you contact us, you aren’t passed around support tiers. Instead, you get straight through to an expert who knows your solution inside out and can solve your issue or action your request.
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.
While 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, running a minimum of two servers per customer to allow for failover if necessary. We eliminate single points of failure by using redundant BladeServer hardware to ensure your solution is running at optimal performance, at all times.
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.
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.
Our experts can help you to overcome unique challenges around your cloud infrastructure, leading to improved levels of service and reduced costs.
With powerful computing infrastructure and expert management, we help to increase productivity, drive innovation and ultimately grow your business.
Hospitality brand, Cote Brasserie, came to Hyve during the pandemic looking for expertise on setting up their “Cote at Home” eCommerce platform. They wanted to improve site speed and platform resilience and needed some support with optimising their databases. Hyve load balanced their entire platform to help minimise downtime, which in turn reduced the potential for lost revenue.
Ecommerce site, Wicked Uncle, has customers spread across both the UK and the US, so they needed hosting infrastructure in both locations. Hyve helps Wicked Uncle build resiliency and mitigate against slow load times by operating a replica environment in both locations to minimise latency for their end users.
Managed cloud services usually indicate the partial or complete management of a client’s cloud platform – which often encompasses migration, maintenance and future optimisation. Hyve’s managed cloud is built on providing the ease of scale and cost savings of public cloud infrastructure, but with added security, monitoring and flexibility.
There is a distinct difference between managed and unmanaged clouds. While they share several similarities, they differ substantially on a number of core issues:
Unmanaged cloud: An unmanaged cloud provides the core cloud services, but with a “do it yourself” model. In essence, the customer rents access to infrastructure, but they are responsible for maintaining and running all the tools and applications that run on the system.
Managed cloud: In comparison with a managed cloud, a hosting provider will act as an extension of your IT team. Using a managed cloud provider means that you will have a team of expert engineers at your disposal to implement a cloud solution bespoke to your business.
Managed cloud isn’t ‘public’ in the traditional sense of the word. It is still a multi-tenanted cloud platform, which means you can enjoy the cost savings and ease of scale provided by public cloud suppliers, but with added security and 24/7 monitoring.
Managed cloud environments provide businesses with a range of benefits, some of these include:
