The following are the unique aspects of Cloud4C which no other cloud provider will provide:Continuity:
To meet today's demanding BC/DR strategies, IT organizations that use cloud should focus on appropriate availability zones in SLA's. Further multiple storage options and low-failure rate storage are required. Cloud4C provides these as follows:
Most common cloud SLA are not suited for most deployments. Most analysts have gone to the extent of calling them useless. The standard SLA from existing cloud service providers impose strict guidelines in how users must architect their cloud systems for the SLAs to apply in the case of service disruptions, leading to increased costs for users. A major cloud vendor, for example, requires customers to have their applications run across at least two availability zones (AZ), which are physically separate data centers that host the company's cloud services. Both AZs must be unavailable for the SLA to kick in. Another vendor SLA only applies if customers cannot access any AZs. That means customers have to potentially architect their applications to span three or more AZs, each one imposing additional costs on the business.Cloud4C differs with the following strength:
Cloud4C benefits from connectivity from all the major Telecom companies and there will be no disruption even if any Telco goes down. Cloud4C has a huge bandwidth capacity of 18 Gbps. It also supports MPLS and P2P (Point to Point) connectivity.Best of Breed Storage:
Cloud4C by default use SSD's. These provide 10 x performance boosts to VM's and applications ensuring that storage does not become a bottle neck for any Database or Bigdata operations. SSD does not have any moving parts and hence have lower failure rates
While most cloud offerings provide multiple components, they package it with different SLA and the packages are not inflexible. Cloud4C provides eleven different components that come in variety of customizable packages. The following is a list of these:
Cloud4C provides excellent compliance especially to IT ACT 200 and uses a series of certified processes:Certified Operations:
Cloud4C derives its strength due to CtrlS Experienced Service Delivery handling fortune 500 clients – SSAE16 and In-house development ops team for automation and remediation IPRKnow your data location:
