Hybrid cloud combines the high performance and security of private clouds or colocation with the flexibility of elastic public cloud platforms to power your infrastructure.
The hybrid approach to the Cloud can allow organisations to manage resources more effectively, maximising existing investments in infrastructure while unlocking new operational efficiencies or capabilities.
Combining scalable public cloud with private cloud or colocation provides you with the perfect balance of guaranteed performance for intensive applications such as SQL databases with the flexibility of being able to react to changes in demand on the front-end.
Avoid over-provisioning of front-end services for peak demand, while also controlling costs with a predictable monthly cost for high utilisation services.
Hybrid cloud with 4D allows you to utilise the 4D public cloud platform, or any of the major public cloud providers (AWS (Amazon Web Services), Microsoft Azure, GCP (Google Compute Platform), Salesforce, etc).
4D provides a cloud interconnect service for all colocation clients; by utilising our dedicated fibre network we are able to offer direct interconnection to the 4D Public Cloud as well as all major cloud providers through dedicated connectivity across our low-latency, high bandwidth fibre core.
If you’re looking for Amazon Direct Connect for Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Express Route for Microsoft Azure Cloud, Google Cloud Interconnect for GCP, IBM Cloud or Oracle FastConnect for Oracle Cloud, we’re ready. If you have another cloud provider or network you need to work with, contact us so we can make the connection.
Cloud interconnects are terminated directly into your rackspace on dedicated uplinks at speeds from 1 Gbps through to 100 Gbps.
4D’s Hybrid Cloud solution is based around private cloud infrastructure built using cloud platforms with dedicated, private connectivity into either the 4D Public Cloud or other major public cloud providers such as Amazon AWS, Azure or Google Compute.
