The NexusTek Cloud
The NexusTek Cloud offers private and shared cloud solutions that are customized to fit your business needs, with personalized support from engineers who know your business, applications, and users.
What Is the NexusTek Cloud?
The NexusTek Cloud offers cloud hosting solutions in both single- and multi-tenant environments (i.e., both private and shared cloud), with a level of personalization that hyperscale cloud providers do not offer. Accessing hyperscale cloud solutions is often a self-service process, in which the customer simply selects the desired solution from a menu of options and provides payment.
In contrast, NexusTek Cloud solutions are tailored to fit your business through consultation with an experienced engineer. With NexusTek Cloud, your business has access to the same level of technological sophistication offered by big-name public cloud providers, but with personalized service and support from engineers who know your business, applications, and users.
Benefits of the NexusTek Cloud
With NexusTek Cloud, your business can take advantage of the flexibility, scalability, and convenience that hyperscale public cloud solutions offer, but with a greater level of customization and personalized support than large public cloud providers offer. NexusTek Cloud offers superior cost effectiveness in comparison with on-premises and cloud equivalents, with a predictable monthly invoice. Migrating to NexusTek Cloud means no capital expense to cover hardware and software and reduced in-house IT expense. Benefits include:
NexusTek Cloud provides service and support with a level personalization that hyperscale cloud providers simply cannot offer. When support is needed, your employees can communicate directly with NexusTek engineers who understand your business, systems, and applications. With a dedicated engineer, your employees have a single point of contact for end-to-end support.
Providing an additional layer of personalization, NexusTek’s cloud hosting solutions can be customized to meet the unique needs of your business. To develop a cloud infrastructure that is tailored to your business, our engineers learn about your business needs, processes, and requirements. We then work together with you to develop customized single- or multi-tenant cloud solutions that may include features such as dedicated engineers, physical firewalls, dedicated private circuits, and more.
Compliance & Security
NexusTek Cloud maintains SOC 2 Type II compliance. Illustrating its stringency, SOC 2 Type II certification is often sought—or required—by organizations that store highly sensitive data, such as patient health records or client financial records. In addition, NexusTek Cloud offers Software-Defined Wide-Area Network (SD-WAN), which enhances security of business-critical systems and data, also enabling swift and precise response to security threats.
Cloud migration involves moving your company’s applications and data from your on-premises IT infrastructure to our cloud hosting infrastructure. We make the migration process as smooth and easy as possible for our customers, with a 100% success rate for cloud migrations.
Many businesses utilize a combination of private and public cloud hosting modalities, locating their applications and data as needed to best accomplish business priorities and goals. The NexusTek Cloud is compatible with hybrid cloud models, meaning that it can be combined readily with public cloud services or your own on-premises infrastructure to create a holistic cloud hosting solution
NexusTek’s cloud hosting solutions are delivered from tier 4 and 5 data centers, using fully redundant IT infrastructure. What this translates to for your business is highly reliable access to business applications and data. In fact, the NexusTek Cloud’s uptime in 2021 exceeded 99.9%.
With NexusTek Cloud, dedicated private environments are available, meaning that data and applications are maintained separately from those of other customers. This provides an additional layer of compliance for highly sensitive data.
NexusTek Cloud Service Types
As with hyperscale public cloud hosting, NexusTek’s public and private cloud services can be configured to cover more or less of the customer’s computing needs. Different gradations of service can be obtained, depending on the degree of internal management a company wishes to retain. With NexusTek Cloud, your business can choose:
With IaaS through NexusTek Cloud, your company has on-demand access to servers, data storage, and networking delivered from our cloud hosting facilities. Choosing IaaS reduces your equipment costs and allows your IT team to focus on higher-value activities, while NexusTek handles support and maintenance for cloud hosting infrastructure.
PaaS is a cloud hosting service type that augments the capabilities of IaaS with runtime and middleware capabilities, allowing you to develop custom applications for your business. With PaaS through NexusTek’s cloud hosting services, your company’s IT department must handle only data and application management functions. Our certified engineers take responsibility for all remaining aspects of cloud infrastructure maintenance.
NexusTek Virtual Desktop
An even more comprehensive cloud hosting service is NexusTek Virtual Desktop, which provides a remotely accessed desktop and a full suite of work applications that is accessible on any device from any location with an internet connection. Through our cloud hosting services, your employees can access a Windows desktop that is fully managed by NexusTek.

With NexusTek Cloud, you’re not a small fish in a big pond. You have the opportunity to interact directly with our engineers, who provide customized and personalized service by getting to know your business, applications, and users.

The defining attribute of private cloud hosting is its use of single-tenant environments, which refers to IT infrastructure that is dedicated to a single organization. This contrasts with most public cloud providers’ use of shared or multi-tenant environments, in which multiple organizations can access the same infrastructure simultaneously.
NexusTek’s private and shared cloud hosting solutions are delivered from three data centers, all rated as tier 4 or tier 5. The tier rating system reflects classification of cloud hosting data centers based on uptime, fault tolerance, and availability; levels 4 and 5 are the highest, indicating highly reliable service. NexusTek uses the tier 5 Switch data center in Las Vegas, which is run using 100% renewable energy. We also use the tier 4 Evoque and CoreSite data centers, located in Dallas, Texas, and Newark, New Jersey, respectively.
If my business adopts NexusTek’s cloud hosting services, do we have to shut down our on-premises IT infrastructure?
No. Although some businesses choose to migrate fully to cloud-hosted IT infrastructure, many businesses choose hybrid or multi-cloud models, using a combination of on-premises infrastructure and cloud data centers to meet their IT needs. Hybrid cloud models are complex, requiring partnership between the business customer and the cloud hosting provider to make sure that essential processes related to security and IT management are clear and streamlined. However, hybrid cloud hosting truly offers the “best of both worlds” for companies that can manage its complexity. Choosing a hybrid cloud model allows a company to retain legacy systems that are running well within their own on-premises infrastructure, while also taking advantage of the possibilities opened up by services like Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) or NexusTek Virtual Desktop.
Yes. With any of NexusTek’s public or private cloud hosting services, we complete daily backups of your data. Backups are retained for 7 days, and a self-service backup portal is also available. Our cloud hosting services are customizable, however, and additional backup retention and features may be arranged.
NexusTek is a Citrix, VMware, Microsoft, Fortinet, Cisco/Meraki, Juniper, Dell, and SonicWall partner; we leverage their technologies to power the NexusTek Cloud and in our customers’ environments.
