Oriel’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provides a managed virtual computing environment that is secure, scalable, flexible and cost effective. With a simple service level menu, you can choose the availability and business continuity options that suits your application and business needs.

Many organisations faced with the need to expand, replace or change their server and storage infrastructure are looking for better ways to:

  • Reduce their costs through more efficiency and less complexity
  • Improve their service levels and speed of deployment
  • Reduce business risk by providing the right levels of availability and business continuity

Oriel’s IaaS is a complete end–to–end solution and solves all of this by providing managed server, storage and networking capacity that can be customised and scaled as needed to exact requirements. Built on the industry’s best and proven technologies, such as HP CloudSystem Matrix, the service is delivered across Oriel’s two Tier 3 data centres for maximum protection.

Oriel’s expertise and innovation has enabled these services to be offered with a range of availability service levels that cater for all business applications, including an active–active metro cluster for the ultimate in business continuity. Oriel’s IaaS comprises the following elements:

Managed Virtual Data Centre (VDC)

A private VLAN or virtual container in which VPS(s) are deployed. It provides a dedicated, private network segment ensuring separation from other users, isolation of local traffic within the customer’s VDC and enables the connection of services such as VSA storage, VDC Firewall (for Internet and VPN Tunnel connectivity) and Customer Provisioned Private WAN Connection. Once connected these services become available to VPS(s) within the VDC.

Managed Virtual Private Server (VPS)

A virtual server with operating system, deployed on shared, high availability infrastructure and a choice of service levels to ensure the right level of business continuity and protection. Each server is allocated resources from a range of options, enabling each server to be tailored to the customer’s requirements.

Managed Virtual Storage Array (VSA)

Shared storage provided as a range of tiered disk configurations. Storage is assigned to the customer’s VDC as a resource for allocation to available VPS(s).
