When moving your business to the cloud, you have 2 options to choose from. Either a private cloud or a public one. With Cirrus, you have both cloud hosting options at your disposal, but we do definitely focus on private cloud set-ups.
Our Canadian based cloud infrastructure revolves around dedicated private cloud servers and for good reason. A private cloud setup offers your business so much more… more resources, more flexibility, more control, more freedom.
With a public cloud, things are shared, much like shared hosting. Virtual Machines from multiple users are all hosted on one shared physical server. Logical volume is shared. So is the NIC card on the physical server.
A private cloud on the other hand keeps things, well, private. Physical boxes are dedicated to you and you alone – you’ve got your own NIC card because you’re the only one using the box. Only your VMs are hosted in your cloud environment. Dedicated logical volume is also just for you. You can create your own private backnet network setup to communicate between your VMs.
