What is Storm Private Cloud?

Put simply, Storm Private Cloud is like having your own data centre. Built on enterprise-grade hardware, you can create multiple virtual servers, scale up processing power and add memory on-demand, exactly when your business needs it.

Storm Private Cloud - The Smart Move for Software Companies

Storm’s award-winning Private Cloud:


Flexible and scalable

Configuration made easy, we give you the tools, flexibility and support to create a rock-solid, secure, scalable server infrastructure for your business. With full hardware redundancy and instant creation of new virtual machines, Storm’s Private Cloud is the smart choice over the traditional dedicated server approach, which is both less flexible and more expensive. 

Resilience guaranteed

Intelligent, always-on and complete failover technology including advanced virtual SAN, enterprise-grade Dell hardware, independent power feeds and optional full mirroring to a second physical data centre (with Storm Reflex DRaas) guarantees a reliable and continuous service for your software applications. » Read more...
