What is IaaS?

VDC serves as an extension of an organisation’s IT operations as it integrates seamlessly into existing infrastructure with fibre Connectivity over Exponential-e's carrier-class Network.

VDC designed for high-availability, reliability and Business Continuity.

The Exponential-e VDC service is hosted in three geographically diverse UK Data Centres. We can replicate customers’ services from one site to another over our carrier-class Network with dedicated Connectivity.

Understanding & Differentiating Private, Public, Hybrid Cloud & Their Network Access Modalities.

There exists tremendous confusion about what different types of Cloud computing services are, what they represent, and what they offer compounded by the blurring of the concepts of Cloud and Internet. We seek to build real-world understanding of the Cloud market and the impact of the various choices in Network access.

What is the right Cloud for you?

Cloud is most broadly defined as being of three types: private, public and hybrid. What's not discussed here is the impact of location for each of these types of Cloud; the type of Cloud does not tell you its location.
