Dedicated Private Cloud Isolation ensures compliance, security, performance and licensing requirements for running the most stringent enterprise workloads in the cloud.
Enterprise Grade Networking Integration supports the performance, scale and SLA requirements of the most demanding production workloads. VMware integrations enable customers to leverage existing VMware investments, configurations and expertise. Cisco integrations allow native provisioning and management of Cisco UCS workloads directly from CloudPlatform, while leveraging Nexus 1000v Switches and ASA 1000v Firewalls within CloudPlatform.

Object Storage can be delivered in a region or across multiple zones for increased workload availability, operations efficiency and management simplicity. Advanced cloud networking enables cloud operators to create advanced configurations and Network-as-a-Service offerings. Industry standard AWS APIs allow customers to leverage existing AWS development efforts in CloudPlatform environments and integrate with third-party ecosystem solutions, such as PaaS or monitoring.
