Private cloud

NSMS logo

The University’s private cloud is an automated self-service virtual infrastructure, available to host services and applications for departments, colleges, divisions and researchers.

How we can help you

The cloud provides virtual machines that can be used to run a wide variety of applications and services including:

  • file servers
  • print servers
  • websites
  • development servers
  • test servers
  • windows domain controllers

The private cloud offers two different services. It provides the option to either rent a single virtual machine or a collection of resources out of which multiple machines can be provisioned (known as a virtual Data Centre or vDC).
