Private Cloud

Benefit from the advantages of virtualization, with dedicated hardware’s guarantees.

The integration of best-of-breed third-party technologies, with our own applications and expertise, enables us to offer unique and differentiated features.

01

Predictable performance

At Stackscale, environments are composed by several computing nodes of exclusive use. All of them connected through bottle-neck free 20Gbps links. When combined with our oversized low-latency network storage, we achieve guaranteed constant high performance with no noisy neighbors. Like this, we avoid the feared “noisy neighbor” effect —common in most of the Public Clouds around— which happens because their customers use shared resources that are often highly oversubscribed.

02

Extreme redundancy

Every element within our infrastructure is redundant to provide a fault-tolerant service. Common redundant elements include dual n+1 protected power feeds, cooling, routers and aggregation switches, but at Stackscale we go beyond. We place dual access switches to all computing nodes (2x10G to each node) and fault-tolerant network storage. Besides, we deal with faulty computing nodes by automatically replacing them, leveraging on centralized storage. Geographically dispersed replication can also be ordered to build Disaster Recovery plans that assume the worst contingencies.
03

Security and data protection

Stackscale’s platform has been designed with security in mind. Private computing nodes, private and isolated networks, and private and isolated storage volumes are some of the measures in place to reach the usual security level of traditional dedicated platforms. Data protection is another important topic and we go beyond the commonly used RAID or mirroring techniques; snapshot-based backups and hourly replication to independent storage systems are always present at Stackscale.

04

Transparency

At Stackscale, we host mission-critical applications. We strongly believe that our customers should know all the relevant details of our infrastructure; as opposed to deliver services in the Cloud that are just supposed to work. As a consequence, our customers know which hardware their applications are running on. They know in which data centers their environments are physically located and which network equipment and topology they are using, as well as any other relevant information.

05

Scalability and Pay as you Go

Despite the fact that a Private Cloud environment can’t feature a complete Pay as you Go approach due to its complexity, our pricing structure maintains a pay per use model wherever is possible and aims to be straightforward even in the most complex services.

Easily designed Private Clouds

Designing a Private Cloud environment meant to be run at Stackscale is an easy task, as there are by far less variables to play with. Important design parameters are RAM and persistent storage size. IOPS, bandwidth and CPU requirements are less critical, since these are prevented from becoming a bottleneck in most scenarios.

Our pre-sales team provides, for free, an architecture design based on performance, capacity and fault-tolerance requirements in order to meet every project’s goals.
