Hybrid Hosting for One Infrastructure


Breaking the barriers between the Old Fashioned and the Nouveau Hype


Hybrid Cloud and Hybrid Hosting management breaks down the barriers between what is considered the "legacy old fashioned IT" (such as colocation and on-premise servers) and the trendy newfangled model of today (cloud, cloud, and more cloud) in order to support a comprehensive IT infrastructure that can talk as "one". One network, shared IP address, one set of load balancer and firewalls and one SLA. ONE INFRASTRUCTURE for business agility to be proactive to business change.

A Deep Skill Set is Necessary


Creating a true Hybrid Cloud requires expertise in networking, storage and compute, security, virtualization, operating systems, different application levels and different software solutions.

Add 24/7 support, data centre expertise and knowledge of High Availability systems with highly qualified engineers who can solve issues that can happen at a moments notice. The ability to bring all of these sets of the expertise, the people, the technology, and security solutions together is what makes UnitedLayer stand out.



You May Have Some Of These Unique Hybrid IT Dilemmas. We Can Help.



Specialty / Custom Hardware


You may have a server or a piece of hardware that can't be put in the cloud. For example, a large database that needs dedicated resources but can be connected to web front-ends and application servers that sit in the cloud.


High Availability / Disaster Recovery


You need a solid, high availability and disaster recovery solution. You can keep your production environment on-premise, while keeping a recovery environment in a UnitedLayer private cloud. If disaster strikes, your business is protected.


Fixed Resources With On-Demand Scaling


Your application has regular workloads but it needs the ability to deal with unexpected spikes in traffic. A large portion of your infrastructure is committed for the long-term in a Private Cloud. But when needed, scale up quickly, leveraging a highly secured enterprise Public Cloud.


Security and Compliance


In highly regulated industries, you'll need to maintain strict privacy and security standards. You may have encryption 'black boxes' that only come as hardware. These black boxes could sit in on-premise or in colocation while everything else is placed strategically in a Public Cloud for supporting highly elastic workloads.



Application Optimization by Tiers


Your want to benefit from the advantages of virtualization on certain tiers of your application stack, but need the horsepower for your database that only high-powered physical servers can deliver.
