Private Cloud Service

Home >> Products & Solutions >> IT Services >> Private Cloud Service

The Private Cloud service provides customers with an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) private cloud located within the State Data Center and Quincy Recovery Data Center. Using a self-service portal, customers have on-demand access to a shared pool of compute resources that can be rapidly provisioned and released as virtual servers on a pay-as-you-go basis or as a dedicated pool of virtual resources.

The WaTech Private Cloud shared virtual infrastructure reduces or eliminates the need for capital expenditures by the customers and allows them to realize cost savings compared to physical server environments. Options such as increasing storage, server memory, and virtual processors along with the ability to do server backups are available during and after provisioning.
