Massive power and resources ? Yes, please!

At Cirrus, we’re true technology agnostics when it comes down to core virtualization. This means that our private cloud can work with any solution you wish.

Read on for all the exciting bits and bobs that make the Cirrus private cloud a cut above the rest…

Dedicated Servers

When building your private cloud with us, the options abound! An array of dedicated servers, an array of components, an array of choice to setup up just the right private cloud server environment for your business. Secure, reliable, powerful… yup, that’s the Cirrus private cloud.

As with all of our hosting services, we have a (healthy) obsession with the type of technology we will deploy. Only top of the line will do. We’ve partnered up with Dell® to offer their high quality dedicated servers well known for their flexibility and power.

Cloud Software

When it comes to selecting the software you want to run your cloud servers, there are plenty of options on hand. Choose from OnApp, CloudStack, Citrix, VMWare, Hyper-V and Parallels Cloud Server.

Canadian Colocation

Want your data centers close to you? Want them Canada based? You got it!

Private cloud server plans all tap into multiple mission-critical Canadian datacenters based in Toronto and the GTA. Click to learn more about our Canada colocation services .

Users can replicate their data between the data centers and select from a variety of backup solutions to keep their data safe and always available.

An SLA that Can’t be Beat

How else does the Cirrus private cloud stand out from the rest? Well, our custom SLA and QOS for sure! We’ve ditched rigid rules in favour of delivering what YOU need. This type of flexibility is something that large cloud providers like Amazon and Microsoft simply can’t match.

Disaster Recovery Planning
A private cloud infrastructure is an important part of a solid disaster recovery plan. But business continuity encompasses many different factors and involves many facets of your business’ operations. As part of our private cloud services, the Cirrus team can help your organization put together a rock solid plan of attack that will have you ready to face whatever unforeseen circumstances might be in store. Your own Cirrus consultant can help build the disaster recovery plan, recommend
components and test the plan periodically to ensure that everything is humming along.

You can also count the Cirrus infrastructure as part of your disaster recovery plan. The health of the cloud server infrastructure is always carefully monitored with a close eye kept on what’s most arguably most important… performance. And we’re very much on top of the latest developments in online security – if there’s new technology able to improve our DDOS protection or our intrusion detection mechanisms, we’re all over it. Security is always on our minds.

And as part of any disaster recovery plan, backups are the name of the game. We offer data backup, snapshotting, staging and backup replication. We can also help by syncing/replicating data to a secondary data center of choice. We’ve got that all covered too thanks to our partnership with StarWind – read on in the next section.
