With POD, handling your IT infrastructure has never been simpler. You will experience new levels of cloud control and efficiency.

THIS IS POD

NetApp storage array
NetApp is a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for all-flash storage, offering low latency, high performance and encrypted data.

Synextra can make the transition of an inherited system a smooth process thanks to our expertlytrained 2nd line engineers.

FEATURES OF POD

Synextra have developed a truly feature-rich cloud solution with POD. Below are the key features that make POD genuinely stand out in the marketplace:

Your own private POD, exclusive to you

Your dedicated POD puts you in control, so you are free to design and deploy it to meet your business needs.

Backups included at no extra charge

Data resiliency isn’t an optional feature, it is a necessity for modern businesses. That’s why every POD is backed up as standard, at no extra charge.

Virtual firewall included as standard

Every POD uses Synextra’s resilient network, so we include a virtual firewall with every POD to protect it from network-based threats.

99.999% platform and storage uptime

By only using high-grade components, we can confidently guarantee that every high-availability (HA) POD will remain live 24/7.

100% network uptime

With network expertise in-house, we have built a robust and dependable network at the backbone of our platform, so you can access your POD 24/7.

From £1600 monthly

By removing the upfront investments of purchasing hardware and storage outright, we can bring a True Cloud solution to you, for less.

POD IS TIME EFFICIENT

POD is so efficient to use, that your IT department will spend less time building and maintaining virtual machines, freeing staff to concentrate on daily IT tasks and projects.

If you want to make infrastructure changes at short notice, the SWIFT portal allows you to expedite this with ease.

POD frees you from the burden upon your time of buying and maintaining those servers yourself, freeing IT staff to concentrate on daily IT tasks.

SPEAK TO US

POD IS COST EFFICIENT

POD is a bespoke server package for which you only pay for what you will use. You get finely-tuned control over how many licences you need, there’s no risk in terms of sizing and additional servers can be bolted on to your package easily. You will no longer need to commit resources to managing infrastructure as POD will take care of this.

The flexibility of POD means that you only have to pay on a monthly basis instead of completely upfront. This frees you from the costly financial burden of buying, maintaining and powering the infrastructure yourself.

With the scalable economy that POD offers, the cost of accessing enterprise technology is reduced.

POD GIVES YOU CONTROL

POD offers you greater control over your private cloud and your chosen apps than any other hosted solution. You customise your private cloud to your exact requirements using the SWIFT portal, at any time to suit you. In essence, you are in control of the ‘front end’, as if you are making adjustments to your servers directly in your own office.
