A private cloud or “dedicated cloud” is only used by a single customer or organization. The hardware layer is dedicated to only guest servers within the particular cloud. It may start with a single host server or multiple host servers. The cloud can scale easily by adding new guest servers or expanding to additional host servers. As the organization grows, guest servers can be added or expanded dynamically to handle higher loads. Unlike traditional dedicated servers, expansion will not require the re-provisioning or re-installation of guest server operating systems or applications.

Proven Scalability Path

We have received excellent feedback regarding dedicated servers we have migrated to our ActivCloud™ platform. On several occasions, organizations have experienced sudden increases in growth and we have been able to quickly and easily scale their servers to handle higher loads as opposed to having them perform complex upgrades to newer hardware platforms. On other occasions, we have seamlessly migrated guest servers that started on our ActivCloud™ platform to their own Private Cloud.

Whether you get started on our ActivCloud™ platform or your own Private Cloud, one thing remains constant:
