CDC works with organisations to support their private cloud requirements and end user requirements. The private cloud is defined as computing services offered either over the Internet or a private internal network and to selected users only instead of the general public.
These organisations are able to safely and securely house their private clouds in a leading class data centre provider and still receive the benefits of a public cloud, including self-service, scalability and elasticity, with the additional control and customisation available from dedicated resources over a computing infrastructure hosted on premises. In combination with CDC’s enhanced security, private clouds deliver a higher level of security and privacy through both company firewalls and internal hosting to ensure that operations and sensitive data are not accessible to third-party providers.
Two models for cloud services can be delivered in a private cloud. Both infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solutions can be provisioned through a private cloud arrangement and both scenarios are able to be facilitated within a CDC facility.
Security is a primary focus of CDC’s business model and this allows both private and public cloud providers to uplift their capability to handle higher classified workloads. CDC has many certified partners who reside within the CDC ecosystem.
