Advanced Public and Hybrid Cloud

Hybrid Cloud

Secure, highly available, virtualised environments with forecastable and controlled costs.


Build a secure, highly available and scalable environment

Hybrid cloud services combine the flexibility and scalability of the public cloud with the control and security of a private cloud environment, providing organisations with the best of both worlds.

Whether looking to build a full hybrid cloud strategy or to leverage it as a stepping stone to public cloud adoption, Advanced’s Hybrid Cloud Practice provide the expertise and knowledge to help organisations optimise IT operations and achieve greater flexibility, scalability, and cost efficiency.

We understand and solve your key issues

We provide services which are designed to solve our customers' key challenges.

  • Control

    With public cloud, you cannot determine a true TCO (total cost of ownership) associated with the IT infrastructure, and you also have to use the hardware and software the cloud provider offers. With a private cloud you have full control over these choices. 

  • Costs

    Although the on-demand and scalable nature of public cloud services can be advantageous, this also makes it difficult to predict costs and keep track of spending. Hybrid Cloud can make it easy to divide IT consumption into capital and operational costs.

  • Security risks

    Security is often a concern with the public cloud as you do not have control of the exact location where your data is stored or processed, which can be an issue with certain industry regulations. With Hybrid Cloud, you can keep the most sensitive data and critical workloads on private infrastructure to ensure security.

  • Complex Management

    Managing hybrid environments can be complex. Our hosting platform is underpinned by VMware infrastructure. It provides advanced tooling to deliver comprehensive monitoring, control and management of infrastructure. VMware will seamlessly balance virtual services in the most performant way, and we utilise VMware NSX-T software defined networking to allow codified management and elastic scaling. To keep things lean and efficient, tooling also delivers sophisticated right-sizing reporting.
