What is the RapidSwitch public cloud?
Our public cloud is a large cluster of servers that are attached to multiple SANs. Our SANs are replicated across multiple sites, so it can be used as a complete DR solution.
We only use high-end hardware, with latest generation servers from HP and Dell, and storage comes from EMC.
Switch gear and back end connectivity is fiberchannel throughout. External connectivity comes from multiple 10Gb connections.
Security is provided by Cisco ASA devices as well as our own internal monitoring suite, which detects any malicious traffic coming into, or trying to leave the platform.
The environment is closely monitored 24x7x365 by a dedicated infrastructure team that are all VMware VCP certified.
Our platform can provide hosting for PCI-DSS compliant environments, G-Cloud customers, IL accredited platforms, and the access and systems are fully ISO 27001 and 9001 accredited.
Users of our public cloud are business only, and there is no contention for resources on the platform.
In short, it is a premium platform.
