Hosted Private Cloud
Service providers can leverage Qstack to implement a single-tenant, dedicated, hosted private clouds for enterprise customers.
A hosted private cloud entails increased agility and customization options, enhanced security and higher performance levels, compared to public cloud services. Qstack addresses the security and high-performance workload demands required for hosted private cloud deployments.
Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)
Cloud service providers can extend their public cloud offering by implementing a fully brandable VPC for their customers. The VPC offering can if requested be on totally isolated resources (compute and storage) and customers can bring their own IP range. VPC can be a requirement for enterprise customers due to compliancy restrictions and whereas they might not be allowed to run on shared resources in a multi-tenant environment.
Scalability and multiple locations
Qstack is a highly scalable cloud management platform and service providers can offer customers access to multiple availability regions. Implementing Qstack in different datacenters allows for this extended service offering. Customers can therefore obtain resource availability in multiple locations and service providers benefit from increased service levels.
