Offload the daily management of your VMware cloud environment to Deft.

100-Gig connectivity between your gear and third-party clouds

100% VM uptime when you modify cloud resources

We'll monitor your Managed VMware Cloud and address all alerts on your behalf.

Real-time cloud performance graphs can be monitored from the customer portal. VMware clouds are also monitored by Deft’s Service Desk. Should any issues or anomalies be detected, a qualified member of our  team will take corrective action and notify your team.

We'll manage all software and hardware supporting your Managed VMware cloud.

We completely manage both the hardware and the software tools used to deliver your cloud, including:

  • Virtualization platform
  • Hypervisor patching and updates
  • On-site hardware sparing and maintenance
  • Firmware patching and updates
  • 15-minute ticket response time

You can still use the same VMware user interface that you're already using now.

Cloud admins have direct access to the VMware interface they already know.

Private cloud customers access VMware vCenter, while public cloud customers access VMware vCloud Director.

What exactly does Deft manage?

We handle the entire infrastructure, including all hardware, the VMware virtualization platform, and the operating systems on your VMs.

What are common use cases for private vs. public VMware?

Private VMware is the right choice when security, compliance, and performance are top concerns.

Public VMware is ideal for existing customers that want to extend their services with us. They may have colocation cabinets already and want to use a public VMware cloud to spin up VMs for testing. Other times, they use our public VMware for disaster recovery. Maybe they have a private cloud with us in Chicago, and they deploy public clouds in Ashburn and San Jose as failover sites.

What operating systems do you support?

Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, virtual appliances, and any other operating system that’s legal.

How do I integrate a managed VMware cloud from Deft with existing systems?

You can connect any managed VMware cloud to all of your existing gear and cloud(s), no matter where they live. Private VMware clouds directly connect to your existing physical infrastructure and to third-party clouds through direct, 10-Gbps cloud-connects. We can connect traditional dedicated servers, public clouds (ours and/or another provider’s), and private clouds together (hybrid cloud) — or multiple clouds from different providers (multi-cloud).

What compliance does Deft support?

Deft is a SOC 2 audited company and PCI-DSS compliant. Our annual SOC 2 audit serves as the foundation for helping customers satisfy vendor management needs and meet their own compliance requirements, including HIPAA.
