?Can I purchase a virtual dedicated server (VDS) in #CloudMTS?
#CloudMTS does not provide VDS. You can purchase a virtual infrastructure as part of the Elastic Cloud service and independently create virtual machines with desired configuration.
?How to connect to Elastic Cloud externally?
Available options to connect to Elastic Cloud:
Through Internet network using SSL encryption (default)
Via IP-sec VPN over Internet organized by means of VMware NSX (controlled in the vCloudDirector web panel and included in the price of Elastic Cloud)
Via L3 VPN (separate MTS service)
Other options that require detailed study are also possible.
?Is it possible to manage Elastic Cloud resources indepently? For example, create virtual machines, configure networks, manage routing, etc.?
For managing dedicated resources in Elastic Cloud without assistance we provide access to the vCloudDirector web control panel.
?If there is a necessity to implement Disaster recovery plan, is it possible to distribute parts of IT service hosted in Elastic Cloud between two geographically separated platforms?
Currently, Elastic Cloud service is present in several cities: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk and Vladivostok. It is possible to provide virtual resource pools at different locations with possibility of disaster recovery from one site to another.
?Is it possible to migrate to Elastic Cloud from hypervisor MS Hyper-V, XenServer?
The basis of Elastic cloud is VMware virtualization. Migrating to VMware is possible both from other virtualization systems (MS Hyper-V, XenServer) and from hardware servers without virtualization. This is a more complex and lengthy process than migration within a single virtualization system. But #CloudMTS has experience in migrating client systems from physical servers without virtualization and Hyper-V infrastructure.
