1 vcloud Virtual Private Cloud A Resource Pool of Compute, Storage and a Host of Network Capabilities Fulfilling the promise of cloud computing
2 FULFILLING THE PROMISE OF CLOUD COMPUTING Businesses are looking for a more flexible IT framework that can adapt to today s rapidly changing and global environment. Business teams striving to move quickly into new markets - and launch new products and services - are demanding more from IT organizations and their internal support that have traditionally focused on avoiding downtime, ensuring security and compliance, and holding down costs. The need for faster, more cost-effective access to IT resources has created a healthy tension between business teams and IT, driving both to look for new and better solutions. VIRTUAL PRIVATE CLOUD Link vcloud Virtual Private Cloud is a secure, capable and expandable Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) compute environment in which to rapidly deploy test and development environments, migrate key production workloads to the public cloud, or launch net new applications. Architected on industry leading VMware vsphere, Virtual Private Cloud offers customers considerable value and flexibility in a hybrid cloud solution. Virtual Private Cloud is a multi-tenant, logically isolated cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) compute solution that includes a Virtual Data Centre comprised of a resource pool of compute, SSD-accelerated storage, production support, and a host of network capabilities. Virtual Private Cloud is expandable through the use of add-ons to meet your business needs and is available on fixed compute, storage and network increments or can be customized to meet your specific requirements.

4 USE CASES There are several use cases that make Virtual Private Cloud an ideal solution to extend your footprint into the public cloud. They are as follows: Test & Development Virtual Private Cloud is ideal for handling highly variable and non performance driven Test & Development use cases. New Enterprise Applications Launch your next N-tier architecture stack on Virtual Private Cloud. Next Generation Applications Explore new web and mobile application development and hosting. Disaster Recovery Use Virtual Private Cloud as part of your Business Continuity planning. THE NEW ROLE FOR IT IT AS A SERVICE Virtual Workspace Manage access to services, applications and data for any device Private Clouds Hybrid Cloud Seamlessly extend your data center to the public cloud Software-Defined Data Center Virtualize the entire data center Management and Automation Public Clouds Storage and Availability Compute Network and Security REAL BUSINESS BENEFITS Add value to your business with these benefits: Scalability and flexibility. One of the greatest benefits of Virtual Private Cloud is the ability to scale up in case of upturn in business demand and scale down quickly when there is low demand. This adds enormous flexibility and optimal utilization of resources and capital. Cost efficiency. No longer do businesses need to have the responsibility of ensuring uptime, maintaining hardware and networking equipment, or replacing old equipment. Virtual Private Cloud demands no upfront charges or bandwidth utilization fees. Fast and agile. Every business requires faster time to market. The Link vcloud hosting platform provides automated provisioning of infrastructure for quick procurement and rapid delivery. As Virtual Private Cloud provides elasticity and scalability, businesses can ramp up and get the job done more rapidly. Full deployments of on demand infrastructure take minutes, not weeks. Support for Disaster Recovery, Business Continuity and High Availability. If disaster strikes, employees can access the same Virtual Private Cloud they have always accessed via an Internet connection, from wherever they happen to be both locally and from overseas. Productivity. Redeploy internal resources and staff to focus on revenue-generating initiatives and spend less time provisioning and managing IT maintenance. Businesses can focus their time and resources where they belong, on developing innovations in applications and solutions.

7 WHY CHOOSE LINK vcloud? Top 10 Reasons Businesses are increasingly under pressure like never before. There are great demands on their IT infrastructure and less budget and resources to carry them out. This leaves many businesses in a flux of IT inefficiency and unfulfilled demands that ultimately leads to poor performance. Link s vcloud Virtual Private Cloud service allows your organization to expand its IT infrastructure whilst only paying for what it uses. Virtual Private Cloud provides the potential for your organization to break out of the cycle of diminishing resources and IT inefficiency to achieve more with less. Here are the top ten reasons why you should consider Link vcloud Virtual Private Cloud as part of your IT plans. 1 Dynamic scaling and elasticity Virtual Private Cloud can be quickly scaled up in case of upturn in demand and scaled down when there is low demand. This adds enormous flexibility and optimal utilization of resources and money. 2 Simpler budgeting There is limited to no upfront cost or maintenance required for computing resources. With the Virtual Private Cloud pricing model, budgeting is more predictable and easier to manage. 3 Reduces total cost of ownership Changes IT Infrastructure costs from a Capital expenditure (Capex) to an Operational expense (Opex) for an enterprise. 4 Pay for what you use Virtual Private Cloud usage is priced on the basis of resources consumed. This is in contrast to infrastructure owned by a business where there will be fixed costs (people, servers, storage, power, etc.) in spite of low or high usage. 5 Allows for flexibility Employees can access infrastructure from anywhere and at any location with an Internet connection. 6 Achieve Disaster Recovery Coupled with Link CloudBackup, Virtual Private Cloud can form an integral part of a company s business continuity solution. 7 Increased productivity Redeploy internal resources and staff to focus on revenuegenerating initiatives and spend less time provisioning and managing IT maintenance. 8 Safe, secure and offshore The Link vcloud Platform is located in Bermuda, at the Link Teleport facility in Devonshire.
