Features of our Solutions

High Availability

BitCloud uses fully redundant hardware at every level combined with multiple availability zones and multiple regions to provide a completely redundant cloud infrastructure. Each availability zone is completely separate and independent from the other with its own infrastructure, set of switches, servers and SANs. For ultimate protection, we also offer access to resources in a geographically separated region. The resources at this separate region (Melbourne) operate completely independently of the primary (Sydney) region and no single event can impact both regions.


Security

Virtualisation, blade server technology and complex SAN systems have brought a lot of extra power, flexibility and redundancy to computing systems, but they also bring a whole new world of security issues. New ways for people to attack systems, to intercept data and to launch DOS and spam attacks against others.

At BitCloud we started the whole process of putting together our systems with security as the primary focus. It was in fact the biggest cause of delays throughout the development process, we simply did not move past a development stage until we were completely happy with the security aspects involved.


Geographic Redundancy

BitCloud uses fully redundant hardware at every level combined with multiple availability zones and multiple regions to provide fully redundant cloud infrastructure.

The resources at this separate region (Melbourne) operate completely independently of the primary (Sydney) region. No single event can impact both regions.


Green Technology

BitCloud is committed to minimising its energy wastage using only the best of the breed, high density servers infrastructure. BitCloud employs virtualisation technology to reduce the number of servers/nodes required. At BitCloud the processing load is spread across a high number of servers, and the servers that are not needed are powered down. This is done automatically by our system, as computing power decreases, workloads are migrated between servers, and any unused servers are automatically powered down. Once the load increases, the servers are brought on-line again.
