Dimension Data Cloud Services
Our versatile suite of cloud services are capable of meeting the demands of the most demanding cloud solution providers, developers, IT managers, or global CIOs. We build superior solutions that take the complexity out of ‘the cloud.’ Our developer and enterprise IT-friendly cloud services are secure, easy-to use, fast, and designed to run complex, high-performance applications.
Critical to any company’s cloud implementation, architecture and automation are integral components to the differentiation of Dimension Data's cloud services offerings. Our Managed Cloud Platform supports both public and private cloud services with a common user interface and API, while our CloudControl cloud management system provides self-service provisioning, configuration, and management of cloud servers, tiered storage, and networking.
In addition to a full complement of cloud consulting services, we also offer professional expertise and specialised support in data centre solutions, networking, converged communications, Microsoft, and contact centres.
Have you been looking for a public cloud solution provider that has all of the flexibility of a real public cloud service along with enterprise-class security and controls. Look no further. We’ve built our public cloud hosting service, called Public CaaS, with the most demanding end users in mind. It supports on-demand provisioning of compute, tiered storage and even networking. Our API is easy to use and allows you to scale by automating your operations. Don’t settle for anything less than what your business really needs.
Is your growing company under pressure to be more agile and deliver IT projects faster than ever? Are there mounting concerns about risk and governance? Are divisions within your business procuring public cloud services in an ungoverned manner? Confidential information being placed in the cloud without a security review is just one example of corporate behavior that can put your business at risk.
If these, or any other IT challenges, sound familiar, a private cloud could be the comprehensive solution for your company. Our private cloud services deliver strategic versatility, corporate efficiency, and digital security. Even if your business does not have the in-house expertise to develop and manage a private cloud, a Dimension Data fully-managed private cloud provides increased agility while reducing both cost and execution risk.
Dimension Data’s Private Compute-as-a-Service (Private CaaS) is a fully-managed private cloud infrastructure-as-a-service deployed on dedicated hardware with secure network isolation.
A Private Compute-as-a-Service provides a pre-determined set of server and storage resources as a dedicated service deployed in your data centre. The service includes the physical infrastructure, virtualisation and operating system software, implementation, cloud management (automated provisioning, orchestration and billing) and ongoing management by Dimension Data.
The Private Compute-as-a-Service also provides you with a variety of options for managing different customer accounts within your private cloud architecture, including the ability to calculate chargeback invoicing based on internal customer usage
Hosted Private CaaS
Like our Private CaaS, the Dimension Data Hosted Private CaaS comprises dedicated cloud infrastructure to provide on-demand, self-service, pay-for-use access and control of virtual servers, storage and networking.With this option, the Private CaaS is hosted within a Dimension Data data centre. Key features include enterprise-class security, controls and performance guarantees, as well as a REST-based API for easy integration into back-end systems, enterprise system management tools or third-party cloud applications.
Dimension Data recognises that the manner in which service providers’ customers – and their end users – consume IT services continues to evolve. As a result, many service providers are seeing sales of their core, legacy voice services beginning to wane. They need to offer a richer, more advanced set of services and target new customer verticals if they’re to remain profitable. Dimension Data offers Provider CaaS to cater for the specific needs and challenges of our telecommunications clients. The Provider CaaS enables these organisations to offer a branded public or private cloud service. The service can be customised with an organization’s own brand and deployed in a Dimension Data or client data centre.
