to deliver quality services. Not something run-in-the middle that everyone else offers, but a customized setup that fits and is adaptable to your needs. Preferably we want to share control with you, this means that we take care of the groundwork, while you can focus on your core business.
By choosing quality products and configuring them correctly, we aim to have very little downtime, and a very high quality service. We have standardized on VMwares product line, running everything software defined. This means human errors are less likely, and that software alerts us to inconsistencies.
If you want to be in total control over your own operating system, but don't want to take care of the underlying hardware and services, then this is the ideal choice for you. Each customer automatically gets a VMware vShield Edge that supplies you with VPN, load balancing, firewall, and services like DHCP. You can then connect up to 9 internal networks (VXLANS) to your edge gateway and architect your own application topology. Since you are in complete control over your virtual machine, you can install whatever operating system you like, we do however encourage installing VMware tools to ensure that you get optimal disk and network performance.
All customers automatically get a vShield Edge. This appliance is connected to the internet, and behind it you can create up to 9 private networks, where you can organize your company/application with different security zones - etc. The Edge gateway will also provide you with services such as HTTP/SSL load balancing, NAT/PAT, firewall, and DHCP services. It's sort of a swiss army knife.
Our minimal machine is a empty virtual machine with 1 vCpu, 1GB of ram, and 10GB disk. Since everyone's requirements are different, you then add whatever resources you require on top of this. Install any operating system your comfortable with, just remember to also install VMware tools so you gain maximum performance benefits from disk and network.
Load balanced web cluster We deploy a vShield edge for you setup to load balance http and https traffic to the amount of webservers required. This allows you to easily service your webcluster by taking down the web-nodes one by one for upgrades or patching, along with a boost in performance. As your web service grows in the future, just add more backend nodes to cope with the increased demand.
Private GitLab Add a private GitLab server to your environment and add webhooks to your webservers. This allows revision handled development of your application with the ease of your webservers always pulling the latest copies of your different branch commits.
Time is money, and properly taking care of operating systems is time consuming. This option is a symbiosis between customer and provider where we ensure that the virtual machine is properly installed, monitored and patched. Each 3 months we have a planned maintenance window where we ensure that the machine is still performing optimally, and is in accordance with latest security guidelines. As a user you will have read access to the operating system, and write access to your users directory.
Ubuntu Server LTS We deploy a Ubuntu server that is monitored for performance, managed by puppet, and configured to perform with the applications you intend to run. You have full read access to the entire system, but are restrained to write access in your home folder. This allows us to ensure that the VM works optimally.
RedHat Enterprise Linux/CentOS We deploy a RHEL/CentOS server that is monitored for performance, managed by puppet, and configured to perform with the applications you intend to run. You have full read access to the entire system, but are restrained to write access in your home folder. This allows us to ensure that the VM works optimally.
Having your own IT staff is costly, and for small to medium companies not necessary. Partnering with us means regular meetings where we help you with IT operations and ensures that your company is up to date with the latest technology offerings.
