Compute Architecture

  • Abstracted hardware layer, enabled by Cisco UCS server profiles, allows for simple, fast migration and online resource expansion
  • 10Gb/s connectivity for every blade server
  • Highly expandable blades - due to high bandwidth bus interconnect from the mezzanine card system, enabling third party card integration .i.e Fusion IO
  • 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 hardware required
        • Automate and manage the build process in its entirety
        • Allows for automatic server provisioning, virtual machine and storage resources, this feature also manages the automatic customisation of the guest OS
        • The automation process also includes the automatic creation of the relevant database records in our in-house management systems


The virtualisation platform uses VMware ESXi technology. 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.
