Any virtual environment is only as robust as the hardware it is run on, so our ‘no single point of failure’ attitude applies when choosing and implementing the hardware layer.
Our approach to selecting manufacturers for our private cloud is as stringent as our recruitment process. We insist on:
- The best specifications available at the time of purchase.
- Equipment that is considered best-in-class by leading authorities.
- Technical support that works.
- All our hardware therefore comes from top tier suppliers and has the highest level of support available. It has built-in resilience and, where possible, we cluster multiple pieces together.

You purchase virtual products, not physical ones and as we upgrade the application hosting platform, you automatically benefit from the latest technology. This means you never suffer from additional capEx while using secureVirtual.
We believe that the secondary data centre is a critical element of a private cloud hosting platform and our commitment to performance, resilience and security extends to our secondary data centres. So in the exceptional case of data centre failure, you still have access to the same Enterprise-class technology.
We insist on exceptional levels of performance and resilience and our specialists work closely with suppliers to ensure a top class connectivity network.
The SVi private cloud platform is supported by multiple Internet connections from the country’s leading providers, offering a huge amount of bandwidth. This enables us the flexibility to meet your organisation’s requirements and the resilience to ensure our 100% uptime guarantee.
Our data centres are connected using 10Gbps fibre rings, which are connected to the UK’s internet backbone and allow high speed connectivity across the platform
As a registered Internet Service Provider we can issue our own IP addresses. This has two major benefits. If our clients need failover to another data centre, this can happen easily and quickly. Secondly, it provides reassurance that our connectivity is carrier-class.
All our clients are set up on their own networks, also known as private clouds. This provides a higher level of security and flexibility for organisations looking to manage servers across multiple data centres. We can also extend your internal network into ours so that you can bolt on our servers to your existing setup.
The SVi private cloud hosting platform is hosted in industry-leading, carrier class data centres across the country, run by international suppliers, including Telecity and Lv13. All our data centres are on different power grids, run by independent providers.
