Private Cloud Services
for Charities


Wanstor provides charities with their own private cloud solutions.

By choosing a private cloud solution from Wanstor, charities can benefit from being able to scale their IT infrastructure as and when they need it, better security, more control over IT resources and improved cloud service reliability.

Wanstor has a long history in enabling charities to successfully adopt cloud computing. At Wanstor we work with your charity to design, deploy and manage a private cloud service specifically designed for the unique security, compliance, privacy, and governance requirements of your charity. With a technology platform that is both broad and deep, and experienced cloud computing engineers, Wanstor can help your charity design, deploy and manage a private cloud solution which has clear tangible benefits.

The main private cloud solutions Wanstor provides charity customers with include:

Virtualisation: At Wanstor we can help your charity virtualise data centre storage and management with a non-disruptive, scalable, and secure agile data infrastructure. This gives your charity access to the ability to scale infrastructure quickly, take advantage of storage efficiencies by only using what you need when you need it, and realise real business and IT agility through policy based data automation, management, efficiency, and protection.

Hosting: Wanstor’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform provides you with greater freedom and security when configuring your applications in the private cloud. MPLS network integration allows you to migrate applications to Wanstor’s data centres but still integrate those applications with existing IT services and networking.

Compute: Multiple compute options provide the flexibility to run your most demanding workloads, as well as less compute-intensive applications, in a secure and highly available cloud environment. Run small or large virtual machines right alongside bare metal servers and clusters on the same virtual cloud networks, accessible through a console and API set.

Storage: Enterprise proven cloud storage and archive service that supports your need for cloud-based data storage, sharing, and protection. The private cloud solutions we put in place are secure, resilient, elastic, and simple to use so data is available when you need it from any environment connected to the Internet.

Networking: Virtual Networking enables you to create private networks in the cloud with full control over IP addresses, DNS servers, security rules and traffic flows.

Web and Mobile: App services let you create apps faster with a one-of-a kind cloud service to quickly and easily create enterprise-ready web and mobile apps for any platform or device and deploy them on a scalable and reliable cloud infrastructure.

Databases: We can provide your charity with the tools to select, manage and deploy managed database services for app development and deployment. Our database services allow charities to stand up a database in minutes and scale as required. We also provide access to cloud data warehousing that can grow or shrink as and when your charity needs it.

Data and Analytics: We provide a data and analytics service which dynamically scales so you can focus on your charity goals, not on distributed infrastructure. Instead of deploying, configuring and tuning hardware, you write queries to transform your data and extract valuable insights. The analytics service can handle jobs of any scale instantly simply by setting the dial for how much power you need and you only pay for your job when it is running, making it cost-effective.

Wanstor Private Cloud Benefits for Charities

Lower IT costs: Cloud computing can help your charity improve cost efficiency by matching your IT cost patterns to your computing demands. This means you can move your IT from a capital-intensive cost model to an Opex model.

Cope with increased user demand: You know the infrastructure your charity needs today, but what about your future requirements? As your charity grows, a cloud environment should grow with you. Cloud can also help your business when demand for IT is unpredictable or you need to test a new applications, giving the IT department control over capacity and paying only for what is used.

Run your charity without fear of IT: Monitoring your infrastructure 24/7 is time consuming and expensive when you have a charity to run. A managed cloud solution by Wanstor means we are doing this for you. In addition to monitoring your infrastructure and keeping your data safe, we can provide creative and practical solutions to your needs, as well as expert advice to keep your IT infrastructure working.

Innovate and lead: Ever-changing organisational requirements mean that your IT infrastructure has to be flexible. With a cloud infrastructure, you can rapidly deploy new projects and take them live quickly, keeping you at the forefront of innovation.

Improved security and compliance: You have to protect your charity against loss of revenue and brand damage. Additionally many charities face strict regulatory and compliance obligations. A managed private cloud environment provided by Wanstor means that this responsibility no longer rests entirely on your shoulders. We build in resiliency and agility into all cloud solutions at an infrastructure-level. This limits exposure to security breaches, and can help to improve your compliance and regulatory requirements.

Reduce your carbon footprint: Hosting in a cloud data centre rather than onsite allows you to take advantage of energy efficient technologies provided by your cloud partner. Additionally, as cloud service providers host multiple customers on shared infrastructure, they can drive higher and more efficient utilisation of energy resources.

Future-proof your charity: There is unprecedented demand for access to data anywhere, any time and on any device. Don’t let your charity fall behind. By embracing the cloud, you can handle emerging mobile, digital and data management trends.
