Private Cloud Hosting

Qbt Consulting’s Private Cloud solution has been in operation since 2001. Throughout the years it has developed, evolved and transformed into a multi-site, redundant datacenter powerhouse for our managed service clients.

How do you stay current and competitive, while still keeping costs low?

The Qbt Consulting data center, know known as DCX, was created during the GFC to assist our clients and partners who were in need of technology upgrades, but couldn’t afford the large CAPEX amounts required. By putting the computing in our data center, on our servers, with our internet pipes, we were able to offer the high-tech solutions to our clients that they’d become accustomed to, without the accompanying bill shock.

As the economy grew more stable, business boomed and Australia recovered, we saw more and more business owners and financial controllers prefer to place their hardware on an OPEX model. DCX‘s IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) was born.

Being able to pay for exactly what you need and receiving 24/7/365 monitoring and service from industry experts is a major selling point for our DCX powered Private Cloud solutions.

Qbt Consulting is able to provide SLA backed service to your business at a manageable, scalable and forecastable cost. The only changes to your costs are if you need to increase the amount of computing power you require!

Coupled with no longer needing a large initial outlay for upgraded solutions/hardware, Qbt Consulting Private Cloud solutions also offer SLA backed uptimes, maintenance and security services built-in.

As it’s our data center, we’ve already employed some pretty sophisticated solutions to counter cyber-crime. We join this with a rigid Operating System level patching process that ensures the compliant, up-to-date operation of all servers within our control.

An in-house team of Engineers, Technicians and Specialists are also assigned to every Private Cloud Solution client, ensuring that if there is an issue with your server – they’re there to find, resolve and report. Ensuring you can sleep easy knowing that everything is under control.

Technologies Used

With the rapid rate at which software, hardware, best practice and security solutions are advancing, we must always be on the lookout for new, improved and goal aligned solutions to employ within our business.

We have agnostic relationships with the biggest and best solutions in the industry and we employ a good percentage of them based on their merit and ability to perform and provide the acceptable level of service and performance we, and our clients expect.
