Mission Critical Cloud

Home > Services > Cloud > Mission Critical

Whether your ambition is to launch the next buzz-worthy mobile application or migrate your most critical enterprise business applications, our global, enterprise-ready Mission Critical Cloud creates the perfect point of adoption.

In order for an enterprise to truly gain the benefits of a cloud, it may sometimes feel necessary to sacrifice other elements. Most public clouds promise utility-pricing and associated cost savings but require compromise to control, IT governance, availability and technologies.

Mission Critical Cloud is a VMware®-based public cloud platform that realizes all of the benefits expected of a cloud and matches them with the demand of a global enterprise.

Control Portal

An easy-to-use, visual administration console simplifies both day-to-day server management tasks and the creation of new servers and server groups.

Role Based Access

Maintain your existing organization’s server, network, and security change management processes with Mission Critical Cloud’s integrated role-based access controls. Enable a line of business access to the cloud with account view and bill administrator access controls.


Vertical and horizontal autoscale policies allow for the automatic scaling of resource-based on user-defined thresholds. Based on these thresholds, vertical autoscale policies will add and remove CPU allocation to and from a given server, whereas horizontal autoscale policies power on and off instances within a (load balanced) group of servers.


The Mission Critical Cloud effectively protects every element of your environment—physical, virtual and bandwidth. This includes user authentication, network protection, data center physical security, and IDS and IDP monitoring of external data transmissions. All elements that are integral to the platform. The self-service Control Portal also allows you to set custom firewall policies to meet your specific business requirements. You can also secure access to your Mission Critical Cloud network’s using IPSEC VPNs.


Ensure that your virtual infrastructures are fully compliant with the most current standards for process and security. Physical security controls and logical security policies are audited to SSAE-16 and ISO 27001 standards. Audit trails are created and always visible through the Control Portal.
