Virtual servers in the cloud (IaaS)

Virtual servers on VMware vSphere for development, hosting, training. Scalable, fault-tolerant, cost-effective. Pay-as-you-go model.

Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service

Cloud4U offers scalable computing resources for hosting virtual machines. You can choose the number of cores, the amount of memory, size and number of disks, the operating system. A virtual cloud server can be built on Windows or Linux.

Virtualization of remote servers is based on VMware vSphere solutions: ESXi hypervisor, managed by vCenter, with the transfer of management to end users by means of VMware Cloud Director.

Cloud4U API supports S3, Terraform, vCloud Availability, command line and SDK.

Migration to the Cloud4U cloud

Cloud migration is the transfer of data, settings, services, and applications to a virtual cloud server. The company actually changes only the storage, while business logic and other processes remain the same. Using cloud hosting allows you to cut costs and reduce the workload of your in-house IT specialists. Cloud4U engineers will help you to migrate to the cloud in a short period of time:

  • From a physical server
  • From the virtual infrastructure on-premise
  • From another provider

We can also assist you in developing a migration strategy and plan, performing an inventory, and analysis of existing infrastructure.




IaaS vs. VPS/VDS vs Dedicated Server

Renting server in the cloud (or virtual datacenter) is a more flexible and reliable alternative to virtual VPS/VDS servers. In some cases, the cost can be the same, but it benefits in terms of functionality
Compare IaaS and VPS/VDS hosting solutions.

Cloud Director 10.1 Interface

Cloud Panel
Cloud Control Panel provides you with control over every parameter of your cloud servers and full statistics (including financial) about the resources used.

API

Full-featured API

Cloud4U API provides complete control over your virtual machine and cloud resources, and makes it easy to integrate the cloud system with your own systems for management, monitoring, scaling, billing, CRM and other systems.

In addition, we can provide ready-to use modules to integrate our cloud infrastructure with different platforms.

Full-featured API:
  • API is fully RESTful
  • All function calls require authentication (Basic HTTP)
  • All function calls work with XML and JSON requests
  • Shell wrappers are available in PHP and Perl
  • Each function of the control panel is accessible through the API

Terraform support

Тerraform is a special utility that allows you to describe the cloud infrastructure in a form of text manifests.

This product allows users to fully implement resource management through the methodology infrastructure as code.

Terraform allows you to safely and predictably create, modify and improve your infrastructure. Terraform has an open source code that encodes APIs into declarative configuration fNiles that can be shared by team members, validated and edited.

Advantages of Terraform

  • Terraform configuration can be saved and used for collaboration by a group of operators
  • Terraform allows you to track the complete history of infrastructure versions
  • Terraform provides operators with an elegant user interface for secure and predictable changes to the infrastructure

vCloud Availability Support

VMware vCloud Availability is a powerful and cost-effective solution that guarantees convenient and secure migration and disaster recovery between different VMware cloud providers. Due to its good functionality and the possibility of the centralized management of the processes of adding, transferring and disaster recovery, it is indispensable during migration from one cloud provider to another. Bidirectional replication guarantees the safe movement of traffic over the Internet.

Advantages of vCloud Availability

  • Convenience. Modern HTML5-based interface, full integration with VMware Cloud Director, new models for rapid deployment of devices and a role-based access control portal.
  • Cost effective. It helps reduce operating costs, as it is independent of VMware vSphere Replication; provides detailed control of each virtual machine and vApp application, and has "failover" and "return to the main system" workflows.
  • Easy to use. The solution is designed to maximize cloud deployment. It is easy to ensure accessibility and data recovery. It integrates with VMware Cloud Director, enabling you to safely perform disaster recovery and migration in the cloud.
  • Fail-proof. Built-in security system, including the ability to encrypt data during storage and transmission, allows you to deploy reliable solutions. Means for compressing replication traffic are also part of the solution, as is end-to-end encryption through end-to-end TLS.

Templates

The benefits of using templates for your cloud:

  • Time saving
  • No need to be a server administrator
  • Preconfigured and quickly deployable templates are proven to be convenient and contain trusted configurations.

Each of the templates can be ONLINE in 5 minutes!
