VMware private cloud helps you extend or migrate in less time.

Faction delivers a hosted private cloud powered by VMware. It’s the management, control, and governance you’re used to with VMware on-premises, but with better workload performance and ability to scale.

Talk to an Expert

A custom-designed private cloud solution transports your VMware workloads to the cloud.

What is a VMware private cloud storage?

A flexible and scalable cloud solution that can be customized to your organization’s needs. Expand your VMware cloud capacity, automate disaster recovery workflows, and run legacy desktop applications. VMware clouds regularly outperform on-premises workloads, and because they use the same toolset as VMware on-premises, there’s no steep learning curve for your team.

The Benefits of Private Cloud

A Faction-managed and hosted private cloud protects your business and improves your bottom line.

Change CapEx to OpEx

Faction supplies the data center space, network connectivity, and operations you need to run your business. So instead of large capital expenses, you pay only a monthly subscription fee.

Maintain control

Some hosts put limitations on what your team can action in the data center. Faction keeps your team in the driver’s seat – full visibility and full control with full admin access to your VMware vCenter.

Protect your data

Utilize VMware Site Recovery Manager, a proven disaster recovery solution, to replicate on-premises, and we’ll provide all the managed services you need if disaster strikes.

How It Works

<h2>How It Works</h2>

Extend or migrate your on-premises environments to the Faction Hosted Private Cloud using native VMware tools, creating a hybrid cloud.

Your private cloud leverages a familiar and enterprise-proven VMware SDDC architecture. Providing you with the same level of administrative access as you are used to on-prem. The number of hosts can scale up to meet environmental growth.

Faction leverages a 24/7 model to manage your hosted private cloud, data center operations, networking, and system availability.

The Faction FIX fabric can then tie the central Private Cloud environment into multiple public clouds, allowing unparalleled flexibility to burst, or access to cloud native PaaS services.
