“A dedicated private cloud is exclusively your cloud on your physical hardware", said Clarence Briggs, CEO of AIT.
Fayetteville, NC (PRWEB) July 07, 2015
Web Hosting Company and Dedicated Server Hosting provider, Advanced Internet Technologies, Inc. (AIT.com), has announced its release of its Dedicated Private Cloud plan. The entry level offering includes an E3-1230 dedicated server with a XenServer virtualization instance equipped with an SSD drive and a 1TB SATA drive for back up. The company indicated that it has more robust, multi-server solutions for its dedicated private cloud offerings for larger clients. AIT’s Dedicated Private Cloud comes with over 30 pre-installations along with WHM/cPanel or Plesk control panels included free. Plans start at just $114 a month.
Management & Control:
“A dedicated private cloud is exclusively your cloud on your physical hardware. Computing resources are dedicated exclusively for your use unlike traditional cloud computing which is a shared environment. You get root or admin access and have complete control over the provisioning and managing of your resources. Your IT team still operates the environment, but they are no longer responsible for the maintaining and upgrading it, which is the responsibility of AIT, freeing up time for your IT personnel,” said CEO Clarence Briggs of AIT. Your dedicated private cloud uses a single-tenant infrastructure from power, networking, servers, and storage through the cloud stack. Everything is installed, configured, managed, and monitored 24x7x365 by experienced engineers. AIT takes care of patching, monitoring, and maintaining the infrastructure.
Almost anything that will work in a self-run or co-lo public cloud is a candidate for a dedicated private cloud. AIT's dedicated private cloud comes with pre-installed applications to which we are constantly adding more every day. Common application uses include:
- Customized line-of-business applications
- Run multiple operating systems, applications and virtual machines
- Data and applications with high security and compliance requirements
- Cloud initiatives where you have recently made large on-premise investments
- Applications that require a high degree of control
- Mission-critical applications and workloads
Until now, dedicated private clouds have only been affordable to the largest companies because they rely upon proprietary software and hardware costing thousands of dollars a month. Starting at $114 a month, AIT has put dedicated private clouds at an affordable price point for anyone to include application developers and any size business. “With a dedicated private cloud, AIT maintains, owns and upgrades the infrastructure. You are paying to use that infrastructure as a service but unlike traditional cloud hosting where you are sharing resources (using public transportation with other passengers and paying by the mile), you have your own dedicated vehicle customized with your specifications and options,” said Briggs. Capital expenditures on hardware are largely replaced by operational expenses on the service, creating potential economic and managerial advantages. There still may be software-related capital expense that you'll have to layer onto the infrastructure environment, depending on your application stack. Finally, AIT has the most robust yet affordable dedicated private cloud in the industry. “We encourage comparison and welcome a phone call with your current provider and you to show you why we are the best choice for hosting your solution in terms of performance and price,” said Briggs.
Security & Uptime:
Because the infrastructure is solely dedicated to your deployment, you are able to establish your own security and compliance standards, as well as enforce and measure them. No one else is sharing or has access to your dedicated physical server. You have the enhanced security of a single-tenant environment with physically isolated network, computing, and storage layers. A dedicated private cloud supports stringent uptime standards. Resilience is one of the main reasons why organizations consider an off-premise solution like a dedicated private cloud versus maintaining their own datacenter or using a public multi-tenant cloud. There are many layers of redundancy that support uptime and recovery, both on and off your dedicated server.
Flexibility & Performance:
Dedicated hardware resources provide consistent performance. “No shared environment means no multi-tenant related performance issues and compromises,” said Briggs. In a dedicated private cloud, you can run multiple operating systems, applications and virtual machines in a very cost effective manner. You don't need multiple servers for the various functions and applications. You can run one application under Linux and another under Windows. You can spin up VMs in an instant, clone them and take a snapshot. “If you need to rapidly expand your capacity beyond current levels, you can provision additional resources from AIT. We are proficient at rapidly increasing capacity, and can do so quickly,” said Briggs. Time-to-production is reduced in a dedicated environment versus self-run or co-lo environments. You can also develop and stage applications on the same server by creating a separate virtual machine.
Clarence E. Briggs III, the founder and CEO of AIT and a service-disabled veteran, launched the company in 1995. It has since grown into a multimillion dollar business that has been named twice to the Inc. 500 list of the nation's fastest-growing private companies.
