Among the numerous cloud solutions available in the industry, managed private clouds gain a lot of demand. The reason behind this phenomenon is that companies can now focus fully on their businesses while their cloud provider takes care of every single one of their cloud needs.
VEXXHOST's private cloud solutions offer three varying support levels to clients, and fully managed is one of them. The only thing the customer needs to let us know is where the server is to be located, and the rest is taken care of.
In this blog, we will discuss what all are included in our fully managed private cloud. If you would like a deeper dive, our recently published blogs will give you a better idea of what a fully managed private cloud is and what its major advantages are.
Before we proceed, know that VEXXHOST's managed private cloud is not limited to just the things listed below. We tailor the assistance according to the requirements and specifications of each client. So, depending on your need, the number could be more or less than 14.
