HP Bladesystem Matrix

Digital Planet is the first Irish Cloud services provider to implement this powerful package to bring local customers the highest levels of service available today.

HP 3PAR Storage Systems

Digital Planet is the first Irish Cloud services provider to implement HP Bladesystem Matrix, bringing local customers the highest levels of service available today


VMware vSphere
As the leading virtualisation platform for industry-standard servers, VMware vSphere helps us offer cost effective and flexible services by delivering a robust, agile and secure environment. Our infrastructure also deploys other leading technologies from providers such as Cisco, Juniper, F5 & CheckPoint.

Security
Security is the primary concern at Digital Planet and our environment has been designed to provide you with complete peace of mind by offering the highest levels of security.

We have implemented our design with security technology from the leading vendors in this area including Cisco, CheckPoint, Juniper and F5.


Our design guarantees that the data, servers or network traffic of one customer never come into contact with those of another;

  • each customer’s data resides in a separate virtual domain, only available to them.
  • each customer is assigned a dedicated set of VLANs to connect their virtual servers.
  • each customer’s network is secured by a dedicated firewall, configured solely to maximise security in their network.

In addition to building our infrastructure to the highest standards of security, we help ensure our customers’ environments are deployed with the most appropriate security practices to meet their needs.

vCloud Powered VCloud Director is the most advanced self-service portal for cloud environments available on the market, allowing customer deployment and management of cloud environments through an intuitive web-based console. Digital Planet were the first to implement this solution in Ireland more than two years ago and are still the largest and fastest growing provider in the country, achieving the vCloud Powered status earlier this.
