CDC works with organisations to support their public cloud requirements and connectivity services. The public cloud is defined as computing services offered by third-party providers over the public Internet, making them available to anyone who wants to use or purchase them. They may be free of charge or sold on demand, allowing customers to only pay per usage for the CPU cycles, storage or bandwidth they consume.
Public Cloud providers who reside in the CDC are held responsible for all management and maintenance of the system that is consumed by a third-party. CDC has an engagement team that works with the provider to ensure continuity and scale of service. Security is of utmost paramount to both the cloud service and the data centre and whilst security concerns have been raised over public cloud environments, when implemented correctly, the public cloud can be as secure as the most effectively managed private cloud implementation if the provider uses proper security methods, such as intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDPS).
Security is a primary focus of CDC’s business model which allows both private and public cloud providers to uplift their capability to handle higher classified workloads. CDC has many certified partners who reside within the CDC ecosystem.
