Dedicated Cisco UCS hardware nodes
Your very own dedicated servers power as many virtual machines as you require, in any configuration you need. Flexible and fully-redundant, your virtual machines can be spread across as many hypervisors as required.
Storing all of your data and virtual machines, your SAN storage is fully-redundant to ensure no single point of failure. Covered by our SLA and 100% network uptime guarantee, your data is safe with our Dell Equal Logic SANs with redundant RAID storage, incorporating dedicated backup and restore solutions.
Your eCloud Private solution is configured with a scalable structure built for redundancy, meaning in the unlikely event you suffer an entire server loss, your remaining servers take over in a seamless transition, protecting your business from damaging downtime.

Disaster recovery in the world of physical servers can be complex. eCloud Private lets you simplify your DR strategy and actually enables you to test your DR failover plan. With a backup and restore solution forming part of your package, you can backup and restore entire VMs from your hypervisor-based snapshots.
