At Ahead-IT we offer out-of-the-box preconfigured turn-key private and public cloud solutions with integrated backup and disaster recovery.

Here you can find some examples, but basically we custom build everything to the client desires. This can be a combination of networking + VMware for VPS +  Open-E JovianDSS for VPS and SMB/NFS storage. All components we supply are high availability, so no downtime is possible or limited to a virtual machine reboot time, typically less than 5 minutes.

Please note, your current shopping basket will be emptied!


Discover endless possibilities with Ahead-IT. A small investment buys your business a solid virtual private cloud solution, featuring:

  • Unlimited scalability
  • Failover redundancy for high-availability
  • Hot data SSD caching for ultra-high performance rates
  • 2x 4TB backup volumes with custom recovery scheduling
  • 10GB storage network (2 physically separable Open-E SANs connected to 3 vSphere servers)

With a virtual private cloud solution, you get more for less. Compared to a separated server setup, this all-in-one package allows you to save power while increasing performance rates. That’s a benefit for both your wallet and the environment. Our private cloud solutions are also the most user-friendly way of working in the cloud.
