What is Proact Hybrid Cloud?

What is Proact Hybrid Cloud?

Proact Hybrid Cloud is a cloud platform which simplifies and delivers enterprise class Infrastructure as a Service, with self-service capabilities and the ability, as standard, to integrate with Amazon Web Services (other cloud platforms available in a custom deployment model). This allows you to bring your IT together into a unified and automated ecosystem, offering freedom of choice without compromising the best platform for each given task.

How it works

How it works

We host, manage and deliver a virtual data centre that integrates your on-premises platforms with the public cloud – but it's you who's in the driving seat. You'll have complete control via a self service web portal, where you can provision compute, storage and networking resources quickly and simply – for known costs.

Instantly launch services on the web and easily migrate exiting on-premises systems into the Proact cloud. We make it easy for users with role-based access to deploy virtual machines or servers from templates. And you'll enjoy 99.99% availability, thanks to integrated flash storage.

All of this comes as standard. A custom option is also available, offering deeper integration and automation. Plus you can select Backup and Disaster Recovery as optional extras.

Custom integration & automation

Custom integration & automation

Need a deeper level of integration with your existing infrastructure and additional cloud services? We provide a custom offering using the VMware vRealize automation suite.

You can use this to orchestrate the provisioning of software, services or infrastructure from user requests, which can be made from a catalogue of items in the self-service portal we offer. This allows you to pre-define policies and manage resource allocation, granular approval processes and lifecycles. We can also provide you with public cloud control, through a dedicated portal.

Help with transition & migration

Help with transition & migration

Our simple, standardised approach to service migration from your site to the Proact Hybrid Cloud avoids downtime and service disruption. You can move hundreds of VMs simultaneously with a single click, thanks to automatic orchestration. And you retain full control of the migration schedule, while ensuring low risk, thanks to a no-impact 'click to test' of migration success.

Secure by design

Secure by design

As well as ensuring platform security, we've also looked at the data centres, the processes and the people who manage it 24/7. Physical security includes high-quality Tier-3 data centres, guaranteed data location and two NOCs (Network Operation Centres), both ISO27001-certified.

Logical security includes 2-factor authentication, hypervisor-level anti-virus and micro-segmentation through software-defined networking.

We have a dedicated security team keeping an eye on Proact Hybrid Cloud from our Security Operations Centre. If any threat arises, it can be quickly identified and resolved.

Ongoing support

Ongoing support

We offer ongoing support for Proact Hybrid Cloud in the shape of Service Management, which sees us monitor and manage every aspect of the platform 24/7, from problem and change management to health checks, patches and upgrades.

It's an absolutely vital part of our offering, as it ensures that you are able to offer consistent and well-governed services. It's also flexible. We manage up to the hypervisor level as standard, but can uplift this to the VM or OS as required, further enhancing your experience.
