Cloud Virtual Servers

Stream Networks cloud virtual servers provide you with all the functionality of a physical server and state of the art IT infrastructure, without having the normal capital expenditure costs, maintenance headaches traditionally associated with a physical ‘on premise’ platform.

The standard offering is Infrastructure as a Service and Software as a Service, however this can be enhanced to provide licence management, software updates, disaster recovery and full remote management and monitoring services which is all associated with managing technology in today’s 21st century connected world.

You can run whatever software you like within the Cloud, with your own access policies, and benefit from temporary or permanent increases in resources whenever you require it. Whether you are looking to implement a Public, Hybrid or Private cloud, the Stream Networks Virtual Server Farm (VSF) is designed in a highly available geo-redundant architecture.

Based on VMWare with highly available hardware, our Server Farms are all UK based and each datacentre is connected to our MPLS core via our resilient 40Gbps fibre ring. In addition, each datacentre environment is backed-up to 3 different locations.
