Looking for the right path into the cloud? We’ll help you find your way.
We’re here to support your journey to IT freedom. We’ll help you choose the right products for your business – we won’t sell you a one-size-fits-all solution. And when you’ve made your choice, we’ll support you every step of the way.
Managing your migration
Of course, if you’re moving important infrastructure or applications off-site, you want answers to a few questions first. Can you try before you buy? Will you get migration support? Can you be sure your legacy infrastructure will still work?
Above all, you need to make sure that the technology you choose fits your business perfectly. At Virgin Media Business we’ll help you explore every option – from colocation and website hosting right through to a Virtual Private Data Centre managed from a web portal.
Try our VPDC demo portal before you buy, and we’ll support you throughout your migration, so you can be sure of a smooth transition into the cloud.
How we can help
Our pay as you go Virtual Private Data Centre (VPDC) solution lets you scale up and down on demand, with no need to spend your capital budget on building for the peak. You save on maintenance, space and power costs, while security and facilities management are taken care of too – all as part of your monthly fee.
A single, simple, drag-and-drop online portal gives you detailed control of every aspect of your system. And because you’re saving in the quiet periods, you can afford not to compromise when the load gets heavy – making sure user experience is unaffected even when demand is at its highest.
