All Clouds are Not Created Equal
Unlike many other public clouds, the Peak 10 Enterprise Cloud offers robust, compliance-grade security, performance and governance. Designed to handle the most rigorous production workloads, it is also economical enough for all workload tiers.
The Peak 10 Enterprise Cloud’s multiple cloud infrastructure pods are subject to rigorous commissioning processes to verify that no single point of failure exists, and to validate its best practices design and installation on industry-leading hardware and software. The result is a robust cloud infrastructure, spread across multiple data centers, logically secure and engineered to withstand dozens of different failure scenarios.
The Peak 10 Enterprise Cloud can be utilized as a standalone compute environment or can be logically connected to physical or other cloud environments. Storage options include multiple performance levels to support the various input/ output demands of any workload.
Flexible and Scalable
The Peak 10 Enterprise Cloud can be configured and resources consumed:
Cloud servers are provisioned at your request by Peak 10 engineers and billed on a fixed monthly subscription. You select the O/S type, vCPU, RAM, storage amount, and storage performance level(s).
You select total RAM, number of vCPUs, storage amount and storage performance level(s). These resources are provisioned as an aggregate to you, and you can then build and remove cloud server instances on demand through the Peak 10 portal.
You can also manage your cloud servers yourself or choose from one or more managed services provided by Peak 10.
Self-management and Provisioning
With the Peak 10 Enterprise Cloud, you can provision and manage resources to meet your specific needs via a web portal, simplifying workload migration and integration, as well as the ability to enforce pre-configured IT policies. The cloud management portal also offers rightsizing recommendations to help make sure you are making the most of your IT spend and cloud resources. We monitor resource utilization at all times and can report a myriad of data points via the portal. Based on average and maximum usage, we can recommend rightsizing of cloud servers to either remove performance constraints or eliminate overspending on unused resources.
Residing in Peak 10’s enterprise-class, geographically diverse data centers, the Peak 10 Enterprise Cloud is architected with advanced technology at the network, compute and storage levels. It incorporates industry-leading virtualization technologies deployed on Cisco’s Unified Computing System™ (UCS) to offer maximum availability. Up-to-date patching provides protection against hypervisor-based security breaches.
Audited, Certified, Compliant
Peak 10 undergoes annual independent audits to ensure compliance with a number of regulatory requirements and certifications.
Peak 10 is a Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) Certified Cloud Infrastructure provider, meaning all processes and components under the control of Peak 10, including for the Peak 10 Enterprise Cloud, are PCI DSS compliant. The Peak 10 Enterprise Cloud has also been audited for compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule under the AT-101 audit standard.
