Choosing Private Cloud

A private cloud environment is an ideal solution for companies requiring maximum security, control and performance.

  • Disk or CPU intensive databases and applications
  • Disaster recovery applications

Solving your business problems with Private Cloud

While some applications may ideally be run in a public cloud environment, certain business-critical systems need a high level of security and performance.

Our private cloud solutions are hosted in our award-winning Tier 3 data centres, which benefit from an eco-friendly cooling system and fully redundant power supplies, ensuring your business stays online, even in the event of a widespread mains failure. The data centre's superfast internet connection also ensures your staff have a better experience for remote working.

4D - How can a Private Cloud Solve Your Business Problems

Cloud Security – A business necessity

Cloud adoption is happening at a rapid pace, as is the rising threat of cybercrime.


  • A private cloud offers the most control over security parameters
  • Hosting in 4D’s UK-based data centres ensures you know exactly where your data is stored and secured
  • No one else will ever have access to your physical servers, or your online platform, without your permission.
  • Our physical security includes biometric access and 24/7/365 on-site security staff.





Our multi-layered suite of cyber security solutions provides an integrated approach to seamlessly strengthen your overall security posture.
