PlanetCloud is Planet IT’s private cloud datacenter, this allows us to offer to customers access to the benefits of the cloud without the limitations and security concerns of public cloud, and this we can offer a range of partial or fully hosted datacenter services all under one banner. PlanetCloud operates out of two datacenters in the UK, both of which are running to ISO 27001:2013 standard and implement physical security which is dedicated to protecting the running environment.
Both of our state-of-the-art datacenters can offer up to 10Gbps connectivity in and outbound and are located in geographically diverse locations allowing our customers to again access to zone based redundancy for back up and disaster recovery. Our datacenters feature dual power, dual power back up via large battery farms, dual connectivity via diverse routed connections, full rack cooling and fire protection.
We started PlanetCloud because we knew that the costs of implementing such a diverse and resilient infrastructure in most office locations was unachievable for most businesses, because of this we ensure that the PlanetCloud system is built to the highest standards and can provide resilient systems for all of our customers.
The locations of our datacenters are not publicly published to ensure that our customers have the protection of knowing that the security of their data and equipment is of the utmost importance.

Why Private Cloud Over Public Cloud?
When our customers are looking for a solution to move their system offsite there are three options, private, public and hybrid cloud. With PlanetCloud our aim is to make private cloud as affordable as possible while giving customer the flexibility to maintain the hardware they already have and gain maximum value from it. We have specifically designed the fabric of our PlanetCloud infrastructure to work with the key Public Cloud providers like Amazon, Google and Microsoft to allow our customers to benefit from Hybrid cloud when the solution calls for it.
Most customer choice to go private cloud with PlanetCloud because of the higher return on investment and lower monthly costs vs a private cloud offering. On average vs hosting your servers in your office a business can save £5,000 per year on cooling, power and maintenance of equipment and server rooms.
