Our data centres offer the widest range of connectivity options in the New Zealand and Australian markets.

When we deliver a Cloud Server it will sized to your needs. Whether modest or signficant you can be assured of one thing, our servers have been engineered to perform! Our cloud is delivered via VMware's industry leading cloud platform, features SSD accelerated storage and are connected via our secure 'network of networks'. This means that your servers are connected to separate public, private and management networks to ensure the security and speed of your systems are maintained. All private network connections are offered at 10Gb/s to ensure that bottlenecks are eliminated between your servers.
Information is an organizations’ most important asset, and protecting it is a vital issue. So security is a central concern for our cloud environment.
Cloud based systems are by very definition connected to the internet which carries a risk a hacker or automated system will attempt to gain control of your systems. Our data centres are protected against this in a number of ways. Firstly Vocus are protected against distributed denial of service attacks (DDoS) via a number of technologies. Secondly, all our cloudServers are protected using state of the art Fortinet Next Generation firewall clusters. These appliances provide a number of layers of defences against attacks to our clients systems. The picture to the right shows the increasing threats to your systems and data. Foundation Partners take a layered approach to data security which includes the defenses described above in addition to our active managed services programmes.
