Private Cloud monitoring

Real-time cloud performance graphs can be monitored from the customer portal. Private Cloud is also monitored 24x7x365 by Deft’s Service Desk. Should any issues or anomalies be detected, a member of our NOC or Managed Services team will take corrective action and notify your team.


What parts of a Private Cloud does Deft manage?

We handle the entire infrastructure, including all hardware, the VMware virtualization platform, and the operating systems on your VMs.

What are common use cases for Private Cloud?

Private Cloud is the right choice when security, compliance, and performance are top concerns.

What operating systems do you support?

Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, virtual appliances, and any other operating system that’s legal.

What compliance coverage does Deft have?

Deft is a SOC 2 Type II audited company and PCI-DSS compliant. Our annual SOC 2 Type II audit serves as the foundation for helping customers satisfy vendor management needs and meet their own compliance requirements, including HIPAA.

Can I access the hypervisor or provisioning portal?

In most cases, no. As a managed service, Private Cloud includes management of whatever you’d be doing with that level of access.

Where are your availability zones?

Private Cloud is delivered from all Deft data centers in multiple geographies, giving you the option to deploy resources in different availability zones. Private Cloud is also connected to Deft’s scalable, redundant data center network and core routing infrastructure for access to low-latency, high-performance Internet transit.

How can I integrate Deft's Private Cloud with my existing systems?

You can connect Deft’s dedicated Private Cloud to all of your existing gear and cloud(s), no matter where they live. Private Cloud directly connects to your existing physical infrastructure and to third-party clouds through direct, 10-Gbps cloud-connects.

“The Deft option was qualitatively better and far less expensive than what we could have built ourselves.”

Let's work together!

Not all workloads belong in a public cloud. Whether driven by compliance, security or financial reasons, a Private Cloud from Deft creates a custom computing environment for your needs.
