The IONOS Private Cloud – powered by VMware

The IONOS Private Cloud gives you all the benefits of a cloud environment – with higher levels of security thanks to dedicated hardware and infrastructure that’s yours alone to use, all hosted in our ISO-certified high-performance data centres.

With VMware, you benefit from one of the leading virtualisation solutions for your own, highly secure platform that’s ideal for many requirements.

The IONOS Private Cloud is also the perfect platform for business applications with maximal flexibility and cost efficiency. It is compatible with VMware environments already in use, which can be controlled just as easily as in-house infrastructure.

Achieve your sustainability goals with IONOS. We're a VMware Zero Carbon Committed partner and our data centres in the UK, Europe and the US run on 100% renewable energy during regular operation. Learn more about our commitment to the environment.

Your software-defined data centre

Your IONOS Private Cloud runs exclusively on high performance, state-of-the-art hardware and virtualisation technology:

  • Virtualisation solutions from industry leader VMware
  • Access and control of all resources via vSphere
  • vSAN and NSX-T
  • 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® processors
  • Intel® Optane™ NVMe memory

If a hardware component fails, it will be automatically replaced free of charge by our experts, without you and your technicians having to do a thing. Your data will remain completely unharmed and we will automatically integrate the replacement hardware component.

Inexpensive storage for more flexibility

Need more storage space? Expand your private cloud with an NFS datastore!

Combine your private cloud with a low-cost NFS datastore. This shared storage gives you more flexibility over your data and private cloud architecture. You can also connect other storage areas via the NFS protocol. So you can decide individually and directly at VM level whether you want to store your data on existing high-performance vSAN storage or in a more cost-effective NFS datastore.

In addition to VMware's integrated vSAN cluster, you can create up to 32 TB of storage in an NFS datastore in your private cloud on the same physical site. On request, we can provide you with up to 128 TB of storage in total. An NFS datastore is available as an add-on from 2 TB upwards, and can be extended in 1 TB blocks as required.

Use cases

Creating your first private cloud

If you want to start utilising the power of cloud computing and are comfortable with VMware, a hosted private cloud platform based on the virtualisation software is ideal. Thanks to dedicated hardware and full control of all resources (compute, storage and network), you can build your own virtual data centre hosted in one of our own high-security locations and administer and operate it using VMware applications.

We manage the hardware and VMware software, which eliminates the costs of operating and maintaining data centre infrastructure, and thanks to our usage-based and capacity utilisation-based billing, you are able to optimise your IT costs even further. Our security standards and data protection guidelines also ensure the best possible protection for your environment.

Hosted IONOS private cloud platform
Outsourcing and administering shifting workloads

The flexibility of our private cloud environment allows you to quickly adapt existing resources to respond to and deal with fluctuating workloads.

Operating hybrid infrastructure (Hybrid Cloud)

Thanks to the administration and management capabilities of VMware, our private cloud platform can be optimally used as part of your hybrid IT infrastructure. Benefit from the power of our hardware, and our many years of expertise in operating infrastructure solutions in our highly-secure data centres, allowing you to get the best out of your performance-based applications.

Highest security standards

As all of our European data centres are ISO 27001 certified and meet the highest security standards according to European legislation, you can rest assured that your data is securely stored and protected within your private cloud.

With the firewall management features in NSX-T, you can control the traffic depending on the chosen configuration so that it matches your requirements.

Our security network further protects your private cloud with IPS and IDS acting as the first barrier against unauthorised access. The SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) subsection continuously monitors and documents conspicuous events.
