Dedicated Private Cloud

For those who want to manage the challenges and maintain the comfort of performance and control.

Our Elastic Infrastructure Service (EIS) responds to the constant flux of business today. It eases planning and cloud development, reduces risk and gives your operations greater fluidity than ever.

Flexible, Accessible and Ready

  • Dedicated, bare-metal servers deployed within minutes

  • Hypervisor, orchestration, and OS agnostic – you decide what software to install (optional installation available for common OS and hypervisor versions)

  • 2 x 10Gbps configurable connections plus 1 x 1Gbps console connection to each server

  • Fully transparent, platform agnostic network fabric supports installation of network overlays (ex. VXLAN) and provides customer access to the complete VLAN range

  • Direct, secure access to each server’s Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) using a multi-factor authentication system

  • Scalable Utility storage platform with SLA-backed performance guarantee (replication between multiple Q9 data centres also available)

  • Accessible via the internet, via direct connection within the Q9 data centre, or via third-party carrier circuit to your location

  • Monthly and fixed term billing options

Benefits

  • Control

    Directly manage how your resources are assigned and leverage the efficiencies of virtualization with no need to rely on the public cloud.

  • Flexible

    Scale up or scale down your physical environment as business dictates. Pay only for what you need and manage your account through our self-serve portal or APIs.

  • Secure

    Our data centres are designed to maintain optimum security. On this, we are uncompromising. Our customers expect no less.

  • Reliable

    Take confidence in knowing your servers are backed by a fully redundant network and dual power supplies, and supported by independent power sources.

  • Affordable

    Monthly operating costs are more practical, predictable and manageable. Free up more capital to invest in other business priorities.

Expect absolute control, performance and scalability in an enterprise grade, high availability cloud environment. The Q9 Private Cloud option delivers exceptional results while remaining adaptable to rapid hardware scalability.

Key Features

Why Cloud?

  • Fractional IT consumption and scalability lets you buy what you need and never again build infrastructure for peak periods.

  • Effortless control with single pane of glass to manage your cloud software and hardware.

  • Rapid time to market so you’re up and running quickly.

  • The comfort of 100% Canadian data residency within Q9’s high availability data centres.

To us, it was a huge differentiator for Q9 that they already had a mirrored secondary data centre site in a separate location with dedicated, high-capacity connections to their primary site.
