    Private Cloud Adoption Strategy – Interview with Neville Louzado from Hyve Managed Hosting

    Many organisations choose to adopt a private cloud strategy just to take more control over their cloud environment, so this could be from a security point of view or just to have greater autonomy over their whole environment as a whole. For many organisations looking to move to a private cloud, this could be a move from their on premise servers, so multiple dedicated servers to a datacenter where they have their own private cloud and this could be that they are scaling down the amount of physical servers that they have to create an environment where they have multiple virtual machines to run their own private cloud from, and…

    Enterprise Cloud – Interview with Paulo Machado from Hyve Managed Hosting

    What is an enterprise cloud? For Hyve in particular and our customers, it offers scalability, reliability, and ultimate performance, due to no single point of failure that we offer within our infrastructure. The main benefits are scalability, reliability, and ultimately performance. We do that obviously based on your architecture within our cloud itself. We have multiple blade enclosures within our cloud with multiple servers. We then use VMware as a software layer to create our virtual environments, which then creates our cloud servers for our customer. What that entails, if a host in the underlying infrastructure were to fail for any reason, you’d automatically reboot on to another host, which…

    Testimonial Medichecks – Hyve Managed Hosting

    Hi, my name’s Alistair Hall, I’m the Chief Operating Officer and founder here at Medichecks. Medichecks provide health screening and blood testing to individuals and corporate clients. Medichecks started approximately about 17 years ago. Back in the day, the business was nowhere near as big as what it is today, so the cost of the business, of having the website down for half a day or whatever, it was probably neither here nor there. But if the same situation was to occur now, it would cost us an awful lot of money. It took me a while to get onto a cloud because I was a bit unsure, could you…
