Private cloud

Streamline your path to private cloud services delivery

Built-in virtualization delivers faster performance for core virtualization processes and improves the quality and control of services.

  • Improved application performance, live migration, provisioning, dynamic load balancing, and disaster recovery.
  • Greater service quality and utilization by monitoring individual virtual machines (VMs) in cache and addressing “noisy neighbor” issues.
  • Enabling ultra-high isolation for usages such as financial services.
