Frequently asked questions about Cybercloud
A cloud service is any service made available to users on demand via the Internet from a cloud computing provider’s servers as opposed to being provided from a company’s own on-premises servers.
Cloud computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer.
CyberCloud is Nigeria’s first true cloud service provider which brings enterprise-class SDDC software to the public Cloud powered by VMware. It integrates with VMware’s compute, storage and network virtualization products (VMware vSphere, VMware vSAN and VMware NSX) along with VMware vCenter Server management, optimized to run on dedicated, elastic, bare-metal infrastructure.
For easy access, information and data are stored on servers, which are maintained and controlled by a cloud computing provider, like CyberCloud. As a personal or business cloud computing user, you access your stored information on the ‘cloud’, via an Internet connection.
CyberCloud provides you consistent and interoperable infrastructure and services between VMware -based datacentres and the CyberCloud therefore minimizing the complexity and associated risks of managing diverse environments.
CyberCloud provides a fully self-provisioning Cloud service complete with a Data Recovery Center, with the most flexible of plans to suit all your cloud need. Our Data Center is locally hosted and is setup to international standard.
Cybercloud’s system is built to keep multiple copies of your data on multiple disks and across many servers. The crashing of a server will not affect your data
CyberCloud’s Software Defined Data Centre (SDDC) is a cloud service with the added ease of configuration and management, custom partitioning and the full array of information Technology (IT) infrastructure capability. This is the software version of a complete data centre. It is an abstraction of the bare metal functionalities of the typical data centre equipment and facilities, presented to the enterprise in the software layer. It provides the full functionalities of compute (CPU & RAM), storage, network and security. It allows for the automation of configurations and management of all deployed infrastructure to ensure uniformity in policy, easy scaling of resources and redundancy for IT business continuity.
CyberCloud’s data storage infrastructure is built on VMware’s Cloud Infrastructure Service. VMware is the world leader in cloud provisioning.
You can leverage your existing VMware software investments by subscribing to our metered services.
CyberCloud infrastructure runs on several clusters of high performing vSAN ready nodes with each node on high availability. Each host is capable of running many VMware Virtual Machines (tens to hundreds depending on their compute, memory and storage requirements).
CyberCloud provides a tenant management portal which allows for full self-service and proper tenant administration. Administrators have the ability to view resources that have been consumed and apportioned to virtual machines.
You will need vSphere version 6.5 and vCentre Server 6.5 or later running in your data center to use vCentre Hybrid Linked Mode for single pane of glass management of resources on-premises and in the cloud
Yes. There are multiple ways to migrate existing vSphere/Other VMs to CyberCloud. We can perform a live migration of vSphere VMs via a vMotion or by leveraging VMware Hybrid Cloud Extension (HCX), The process for non-vSphere VMs would require a Converter
CyberCloud includes VMware’s vSAN storage technology that provides a single name space shared data store (vSAN data store) for VM storage. Each SDDC (software defined data centre) cluster will utilize an “all flash” vSAN storage solution instance that offers high performance, and low latency.
Yes. CyberCloud already has pre-provisioned storage policies based on various capabilities like IOPs, Fault Tolerance method etc.
Yes, but we provide encryption services. The data at REST by default already has an inbuilt integrity check via the SPBM checksum.
Yes. VMware vCloud Connector links your private cloud with public clouds, allowing you to manage them as a single hybrid environment and transfer workloads between them.
CyberCloud site recovery is an add-on service that is optimized for CyberCloud to deliver simple, verifiable protection of critical applications between private data Center and CyberCloud.
