Technical specifications – Private Cloud

The Private Cloud solution differs from the Public Cloud (Server Pro) service in that you can purchase part of our infrastructure specifying all the values of your resources, and manage them using the VMware vCloud Director software.


The Private Cloud virtualization infrastructure is based on  VMware vCloud Director and on VMware vSphere. VMware vCloud Director is integrated with the network virtualization platform for the Software-Defined Data Center VMware NSX.

Private Cloud requires 3 simple steps to create your own management system:

1. Choose your Private Cloud resources

2. Create your infrastructure with VMware vCloud Director

3. Manage your private infrastructure with VMware vCloud Director
