Offering the highest levels of security, customization, performance, and reliability – Private Cloud deployments replace the need to build and operate your own data center and application hosting environments.

Clients can select from a number of pre-configured, cloud optimized server builds to support any specific performance requirement. In addition, ScaleMatrix can customize a specific build or CPU/RAM configuration based on a given request.

Clients can choose from managed firewall and networking features, or can elect to have dedicated switches and security appliances deployed upon request. Performance tiered Cloud Storage, monitoring, bandwidth, and security features are all easily customized to meet the most demanding requirements.

For organizations concerned with data privacy, Private Cloud services can be deployed as standalone islands, ensuring maximum security and protection. Leveraging VMware’s virtualization services, Private Cloud environments can support anywhere between four (4) and several hundred compute cores.

dellWhether migrating an individual application or an entire physical data center to a virtualized environment, ScaleMatrix Dedicated Private Cloud hosting services provides the ultimate in flexibility, control, and overall security.

Opex vs CapEX

Faced with the need to purchases tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of infrastructure to support a new project? Maxed out on your CapEx spend for the year? With ScaleMatrix Private Cloud services, Clients can quickly spin up new environments, big or small, without huge up front capital expense. Leverage OpEx budgets, and speed time to deployment with ScaleMatrix Private Cloud services.

Performance & Control

One of the key benefits of Private Cloud, over traditional Public Cloud environments, is performance! You choose the amount of CPU/RAM needed to support your application. Then select the storage solution that’s right for you from our performance tiered Cloud Storage service. Concerns about performance or multi-tenant environments are a thing of the past.

Ease of Use

After selecting a specific amount of compute / memory resources, ScaleMatrix will deploy your Private Cloud environment. Leveraging the ScaleMatrix VMware interface, you are free to launch and manage virtual instances as you see fit.

Privacy & Security

With Private Cloud services at ScaleMatrix, Clients can rest assured that their compute / data services are secure. In addition, dedicated networking, security, and even storage services are available for the most cautious of end users!

Scalability

With ScaleMatrix, adding additional capacity is a breeze. Need additional compute, bandwidth, storage, or network capacity? Just ask. Most requests are completed same day!

Cloud Storage
storage-racksScaleMatrix provides clients with access to high availability, performance tiered Cloud Storage hosted within the San Diego and/or Houston Data Center locations.

starting-at-10Sold in 50GB blocks (with the exception of the RealTime IOPS pool, which is sold by the GB), Clients may select between four distinct performance classifications. ScaleMatrix utilizes industry standard fully meshed redundant controllers deployed in an active / passive configuration to ensure maximum uptime and protection for Client data. Additionally, protections for data integrity are implemented through use of a next generation filing system which is completely transparent to customers, but which protects against degradation of data over time.

Clients may choose to store data in either or both of our two enterprise grade, US based Data Centers, and may elect to replicate data to other availability zones by using ScaleMatrix DataSecure Backup and/or Data Replication services. Snapshots are taken daily and retained for thirty days by default, with the customer having the option for custom configurations.

SSD-cloud-homeFor Clients with complex environments and large data stores, Cloud Storage performance tiers can be sub-divided into multiple pools to boost performance for certain applications or functions.

Clients utilizing cloud, colocation, or other hosting services within any of the ScaleMatrix Data Centers may connect to the Cloud Storage network via simple NFS mounts. For Clients wishing to connect to the Cloud Storage platform via the Internet (IPSEC tunnel) from a remote location, assessments of available internet bandwidth availability should be reviewed as part of the solution planning process.
