Flexible private Cloud hosting for your mission-critical infrastructure, providing a tailored approach to Cloud solutions. Migrate from clunky, legacy hardware to an
agile, flexible mindset, efficiently and painlessly.
We're fully versed in everything Cloud - so whether you'd like a public or a private Cloud solution, we really have seen it all before!
Public Cloud services work well for rapidly developing new Software-as-a-Service applications. However, as with everything,
they're not the right solution for every organisation. The public Cloud can often be too expensive, especially if you're not completely re-designing
your architecture, and instead wish to give a Cloud-based home to your existing workload.
Flownet have another option - an enterprise Private Cloud service, delivering a perfect hosting environment for your systems. Our private Cloud solutions empower your business to gain all the benefits of the cloud, yet entirely tailored to your organisation's needs. It can even be fully integrated with our WAN & connectivity solutions, delivering a truly bespoke, end-to-end solution.
Flownet's Private Cloud & Colocation Services provide a ring-fenced approach to traditional Cloud services. Whether this is due to security requirements or integrations with third party systems, Flownet can provide a bespoke end-to-end service for your applications.
Easily migrate your current virtual machine workload into the Flownet Cloud, and to another provider if you ever decide to leave - we're sure you won't want to though!
There's nothing worse than an inflexible system in today's ever-changing world! The Flownet Cloud can be customised to your own requirements, from shared hosts through to dedicated clusters!
Most Public Cloud providers charge you to put data in (or more commonly) to pull data out of their Cloud. We don't charge you for this. Use the bandwidth you've paid for!
Do you have physical equipment which you'd like to move away from your premises too? We can colocate your existing equipment, and seamlessly integrate with our Private Cloud.
Provide a seamless experience where your users will be unaware your servers are hosted externally - it'll be as if they were on the same local network, just like on-premise equipment.
Flownet have a vast experience in Infrastructure services, ranging from deployment of on-premise customer environments to Private Cloud. We believe a quality service is of paramount importance, so that's why:
∞ Our Private Cloud contains redundant, standby hosts, ready to take the load if a host fails
∞ Backup of all Virtual Machines by standard - something a private cloud simply doesn't offer
∞ The ability to replicate to a 2nd datacentre for added resiliency
∞ We can provide rental licencing through the likes of Microsoft SPLA
∞ We can integrate with your existing on-premise infrastructure for a hybrid deployment
Flownet's Cloud Hosted Desktop-as-a-Service allows you to have a single, unified experience across all of your devices. For the end user, the experience of a hosted desktop is identical to using a traditional desktop / laptop PC. A hosted desktop behaves and looks exactly the same as you're used to, with the added benefit of running in the Cloud. This means you can access the same desktop, wherever you're working - from home, in the office or on-the-go, on either a PC, Mac, tablet or smartphone.
Our Hosted Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) is perfect for companies with multiple locations, or those who don't require On-Premise hardware, allowing you to consolidate services in the Cloud. Combine the power of our Private Cloud with DaaS for the following benefits:
∞ Work from anywhere: use any device with an internet connection to access the same hosted desktop.
∞ Reduce IT costs: no need for expensive hardware, anti-virus or licence renewals. Save up to 50% over three years.
∞ Reduce energy bills: no need for power-hungry desktops & servers.
∞ No more downtime: in the rare event that a Thin Client does fail, instantly replace it with a new one and you'll be back up and running without data loss. Compare that to a standard desktop PC which will require completely setting up from scratch!
∞ Business Continuity & Security: all data is stored within our secure datacentres, and accessed using industry-standard SSL encryption (i.e. what is used for online banking). Our datacentres are replicated, and your DaaS solution is backed up daily, ensuring you can continue business as normal, without worrying about backups and disaster recovery
∞ Simple, predictable pricing: simple per-user pricing for Hosted Desktop, Microsoft Office & other applications. Remote Desktop Licencing is included in the price per user. Rental of Microsoft SPLA licences allow you to budget monthly in a flexible pattern. Need more users? We can easily add them on, typically in under 24h; the same for removing users too.
If only you could 'cut and paste'... Sadly not. Considerable amounts of data with their associated workflows require translating into a Cloud environment. This differs based on the Cloud environment you're migrating to, and even on an application-by-application basis. At Flownet, we have considerable experience with 'all things' Cloud. We're able to help migrate you step by step into a Cloud-native environment, so you can take advantage of the Cloud, without the headache of migrating. After all, we believe in delivering an end-to-end service!
