What are the differences between Selectel’s public and private VMware cloud?

The public cloud is based on Selectel’s rapidly scalable multi-tenant infrastructure.

A private cloud is powered by Selectel’s fully dedicated infrastructure that provides advanced security and physical isolation.

Where are your data centers located?

We have six data centers. They are all located in Russia: in Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Leningrad Region.

Is Microsoft software available in the Cloud powered by VMware? And how is it licensed?

You can create virtual machines using standard Windows Server templates: Windows Server 2019 Standard, Windows Server 2016 Standard, and Windows Server 2012R2 Standard. Windows is licensed per core of a running virtual machine.

Can I test the available solutions?

If you want to try them out, provide our manager with the following information:

  • What tasks do you want to solve?
  • What software will be installed?
  • What tests do you want to perform?
  • When do you want to perform the test?
  • What virtual machine configuration do you need?

What are your limitations in terms of the number of vCPUs?

We provide up to 36 vCPUs per virtual machine. We have hundreds of vCPUs, which allows you to implement very large projects.

Can you ensure compliance with Federal Law No. 152-FZ?

Yes, we can. The public cloud meets the requirements of Federal Law No. 152-FZ “On Personal Data” for security levels 3 and 4. A private cloud can be certified to process personal data in accordance with security level 1 requirements.

I have my own VMware-based infrastructure. Can I build a hybrid cloud with your solution?

We use native tools from VMware, so you can seamlessly integrate your infrastructure with our solution.

How do I move my infrastructure to your VMware cloud?

If your infrastructure is deployed on VMware, you can migrate it with vCloud® Availability. For solutions based on other virtualization platforms, you can import and export virtual machines.
