    Private Cloud – Performance and Scalability

    Hyve’s private cloud includes performance features which really do set us apart. We use adaptive optimization on our storage. This is where data is stored on two tiers of disks: SSD and SAS. Hyve’s private cloud is specifically designed upon our client requirements, so depending on the client’s performance requirements we can cater for a solution that fits the bill. Majority of the time, we use “Best of Breed” hardware such as HP Juniper particularly when it comes to network, but as well as that, all your blades and network are specifically designed. We have an algorithm that’s constantly running, which will look, and search for, and then move “hot…

    Cloud Migration: What Factors do Businesses Need to Consider? – Hyve Managed Hosting

    Why do businesses migrate? 1. They’re looking to improve the service they’re currently receiving. 2. They’re looking to re-architect their solution, split out various functionality. 3.

    Why is Hybrid Cloud better than Multi Cloud? – Hyve Managed Hosting

    Hi, I’m Graham from Hyve Managed Hosting. I’d like to talk today about multi-clouds and hybrid clouds.
