CenturyLink Private Cloud: VCE
Reach the cloud faster, with the world's first converged infrastructure solution for private cloud computing.
Private clouds built on pervasive virtual infrastructure are appealing to organisations wanting to deliver IT services to users faster, more reliably and at a lower cost. But bringing a private cloud and pervasive virtualisation to reality can prove difficult.
Cloud computing delivers real business benefits, including:
CenturyLink Private Cloud: VCE combines best-of-breed networking, compute, storage, security and management with end-to-end vendor accountability so you can rapidly build, control and deploy your reliable private cloud. CenturyLink private cloud is built on VCE standard modular infrastructure and managed in our premier data centres utilising technologies from segment leaders VMware, Cisco and EMC.
Vblock offers you the agility of public cloud services, plus the security, physical isolation and peace of mind that comes with a private cloud solution. All on a single, highly secure, standardised infrastructure that has been pre-integrated, trialled and validated.
Best-of-Breed Converged Infrastructure
Combining networking, compute, storage, security and management with end-to-end accountability.
Vblock platforms unite traditionally disparate layers to offer a truly integrated solution by converging the compute, network, storage, virtualisation, security and management layers in a single unit that simplifies IT infrastructure resulting in:
Our VCE components are architected specifically to work with each other, eliminating the blind troubleshooting, making upgrades less risky, and avoiding human errors associated with configuration. With VCE infrastructure from CenturyLink, your staff can focus on innovation and service delivery instead of on configuring separate components and tuning network performance.
The CenturyLink Private Cloud with Vblock supports mixed enterprise workloads to accelerate application development and production. All of our virtualised infrastructure is expertly managed by CenturyLink engineers who bring over 20 years of colocation, hosting, and cloud operations experience to design, build and run hybrid clouds on a global scale.
