Deployment Modalities Series: OcientCloud™

Get the best of both worlds: The control of an on-prem solution paired with the simplified management of a cloud deployment

By Ocient Staff

Once you’ve committed to reducing costs and improving performance with the Ocient Hyperscale Data Warehouse, there are still some decisions to make. First among them, where to deploy your new hyperscale analytics solution. Perhaps you have a data center with the right hardware already installed and ready to go. Maybe you’re already established on a public cloud platform like Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services. Those are both great options for your Ocient solution, but another option exists: OcientCloud™. 

With OcientCloud, you get the best of both worlds: the control over spending and data that comes with an on-prem solution, along with the simplified management of a cloud deployment. The Ocient team selects and procures the optimal hardware for your Ocient solution, deploys it in our private data center, and then provides 24×7 management services. 

Our data center 

We put a lot of thought into the OcientCloud data center to make sure that it offers a premium cloud experience. To begin, our data center is situated near our headquarters in Chicago, along the major east/west corridor of the United States. This central location, along with redundant, dedicated networking, ensures that solutions deployed on the OcientCloud enjoy almost limitless bandwidth. Additionally, audited SOC II operations management and PCI, ISO 27001, FISMA High and HITRUST certifications ensure that the data center’s security is top-notch.  

We’ve also gone the extra mile to limit the environmental impact of the OcientCloud data center. Our servers are powered by 100% renewable sources, and the building that houses them is LEED Gold and Energy Star certified.  

Dedicated hardware at the best possible price 

Every OcientCloud customer solution runs on 100% dedicated hardware, running in a virtual private cloud (VPC). That means no shared workloads, no concerns about data security or data leaks, no competition for resources, and no multi-tenant tradeoffs. So you can rest assured that your workload will run on your servers, on your terms.   

Ocient also hand-selects the servers in our data center, which means your hyperscale analysis solution will be running on the best possible hardware at the best possible price for your organization’s needs. And, because Ocient has already taken care of procurement and installation, there’s no waiting for new hardware to arrive. In fact, it’s possible to get prototypes up and running on the OcientCloud almost immediately.   

Fully managed service 

When you choose to deploy on the OcientCloud, you also get the peace of mind that comes with knowing that Ocient’s team of experts is on hand 24x7x365 to manage your hyperscale data analysis solution. We’ll handle the day-to-day stuff, including load balancing, performance optimization, DevOps, infrastructure monitoring, and incident response, so that your team can focus on analyzing the data and developing actionable insights. We’re even there for live support, if needed.  

If a virtual private cloud solution that optimizes price/performance, maximizes control over data and IT spend and helps keep our planet healthy sounds like a good fit for your company, contact us to learn more.
