Power to you

Reduce your infrastructure costs and increase your flexibility, using our
secure, dedicated IT platform with self-service capability.
Vodafone Private Cloud gives you a reliable, secure and scalable IT platform
dedicated exclusively to you. You benefit from lower cost of ownership,
with the performance and agility to ensure your business is ready for growth.
A self-service portal gives you the flexibility to provision your resources,
in minutes.
Our Private Cloud is connected to the Vodafone international network.
Secure, stable and reliable, it’s your assurance of dependable end-to-end
performance. Combined with the Public Cloud, plus our comprehensive and
reliable storage and backup options, Vodafone Private Cloud can help you
react quickly to rapidly changing markets and be even more competitive.
Vodafone Private Cloud hosts your
applications on a dedicated platform
in our data centres. By using software
defined networking (SDN) and
virtualisation, it ensures service changes
are quicker and easier than reconfiguring
hardware. Standardised architecture
and components that are repeatable,
easy to customise and quick to deploy,
means Private Cloud can adapt to your
needs faster and more cost-effectively,
making your business more agile.

Everything is pre-tested to ensure the
service is dependable and ready to go,
and you can choose Private Cloud as
a fully managed or unmanaged service.
With Vodafone Private Cloud, your
costs become more predictable and
controllable. You no longer need to
expand your own infrastructure in line
with predicted demand, which tends
to result in expensive overcapacity.
Private Cloud flexes to match your
needs, so you only pay for what you use.

80% of Cloud adopters consider themselves well positioned for the
future compared with 56% of non-adopters.

The Private Cloud self-service portal
operates across compute, network and
storage resources for a comprehensive
breadth of control. It gives you an
extensive service catalogue, with the
flexibility to change configurations
and capacity in minutes – all from a
single sign-in. The portal can match
your organisational structure so that
employees in different business units
and different roles are given appropriate
access rights and permissions. The
self-service feature also logs and tracks
changes, so it’s easier to trace any
problems or repeat successful actions.
Vodafone Private Cloud uses industry
leading technology to create pre-tested
Private Cloud configurations to cater
for a variety of customer needs. Each
build is designed with our experience
of virtual machine profiles and resource
configurations within a typical enterprise
solution. The standard reference
architectures are used by Vodafone
and tuned to meet your needs. This
simple design process speeds up the
implementation and delivery of
your service.
