Under the bonnet


Compute Architecture

  • Abstracted hardware layer, enabled by Cisco UCS server profiles, allows for simple, fast migration and online resource expansion
  • 10Gbps connectivity for every blade server
  • Highly expandable blades - due to high bandwidth bus interconnect from the mezzanine card system, enabling third party card integration
  • Dedicated fibre channel infrastructure for each UCS pod
  • Redundant modular pod-based architecture results in discrete isolated failure domains, mitigating risk
  • Component redundancy allows any element to fail, without any impact to your solution
  • N+3 power redundancy across all Cisco UCS blades


  • eCloud® uses our bespoke cloud orchestrator, allowing us to rapidly respond to customers by rolling out any feature required
  • Off-the-shelf vendor orchestrators restrict the use of features and are slow to respond to the needs of customers
  • Vendor agnostic, due to our own orchestration
  • Freedom to use any server hardware required
  • Automate and manage the build process in its entirety
  • Allows for automatic server provisioning, virtual machine and storage resources, and also manages the automatic customisation of the guest OS
  • Your tailor-made solution can be built in minutes
  • Our in-house director has been built to ensure rapid feature development and to automate and manage the build process in its entirety, after which your solution is finalised and checked by our technical launch specialists
  • The automation process includes the automatic creation of the relevant database records in our in-house management systems


The virtualisation platform uses world-class technology from VMware ESXi. All VMware management hypervisors and VMs are launched on separate physical servers outside the UCS environment. This, combined with our modular pod-based architecture and segmented management, allows for disaster recovery and auto-deployment in the event of failure.

As a leading VMware Premier Partner we offer bespoke client solutions to enable enhanced agility and resilience for business operations.
