Private Cloud - Features

Private Cloud is an IaaS service, which allows users to create Virtual data centers with virtual servers, firewalls and networks, expanding or reducing as their needs require.
With the Private Cloud users get both computational resources, and network resources for their own exclusive use. The Private Cloud solution gives you greater control over your cloud infrastructure, allowing you to manage all your resources as you choose.

The Private Cloud solution is designed and aimed at an enterprise and business audience, who requires guaranteed resources and is equipped with all the know-how it needs to manage its  infrastructure.

With Private Cloud maximum levels of reliability and security are guaranteed: all the infrastructure is highly reliable and resilient to failures. The entire Private Cloud structure is supported by a solid  redundant networking element, all at 10gbit/sec. The hardware used to provide the service is redundant and the storage is replicated.

Private Cloud makes use of the products and experience of VMware, unquestioned leader in virtualization, to manage its Cloud infrastructure.

Aruba Cloud supports the VMware NSX virtualization platform for the Software-Defined Data Center in its Private Cloud solution, natively integrated in VMware vCloud Director. The new platform lets you implement different network components as requested via software, by defining security policies and further requirements for the dedicated infrastructure. NSX reproduces the whole network model in the software, letting you create and distribute any type of network in a matter of seconds, from the most straightforward to more complex multi-tier networks. Users can create several virtual networks with different requirements, using a combination of services via NSX to create intrinsically more secure environments.

Managing your private cloud and all the computational resources, creating Virtual Servers and managing the network resources, can all be done by using the VMware vCloud Director software, through password protected log-in. Using the Software Defined Network allows integration between physical and virtual environments that until now was unthinkable, thus facilitating hybrid architectures either in data centers or onsite.

The Private Cloud service unlike the Cloud Computing service, provides its resources at a fixed cost and with a monthly billing cycle. The costs are fixed as the quantity of allocated resources is specified at the time of purchase and are charged whether the resources are used or not.
Users can increase or reduce the amount of resources they allocate to their Private Cloud at any time. However it is only possible to downgrade the resources which are not in use.
