Zinc Private Cloud

With Zinc's single-tenant private cloud solution, we can guarantee that your data is physically and logically separate, safe and secure from others. Our unique environment also enables you to upgrade at your own pace, not ours - and that's essential in maintaining a validated environment.

Ensuring the security of our clients' data is the number one priority for us at Zinc. As part of our hosting package, all data is backed up to a remote data center every day, guaranteeing data integrity in the event of even the most serious incident. All data transactions between Zinc users and our servers are protected by SSL 1024-bit encryption, and all passwords are protected by using Triple DES. Zinc is designed and tested for security issues and undergoes regular vulnerability testing via Qualys. Zinc conforms to the latest OWASP Top 10 security threats.

We only host Zinc at sites with the very highest standards of security, monitoring and uptime - so you can rest assured that your data is accessible whenever you need it, but always secure. Our data centers are ISO27001 certified and regularly audited by our customers. Facilities:

  • Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) with generators
  • Air conditioning
  • Fire detection and suppression
  • Building management systems
  • 24x7 physical security

Zinc's hosting package ensures that your data is backed-up to a remote data centre every day over a dark fiber link and all backups are stored on a backup SAN, guaranteeing data integrity in the event of even the most serious incident. In addition, our servers are fully load-balanced for even more resilience.

At Zinc, we understand the importance of system uptime and the need to plan for any event, however unlikely. Our robust business continuity plan ensures data integrity and restoration of access in the event of even the most serious incident. Zinc provides 99.9% availability during working hours, with 24/7/365 technical support via our global helpdesk.

Disasters are unlikely, but should the worst happen our disaster recovery policies and procedures are designed to protect our clients and their data to the highest degree. All data is backed up daily to a remote secondary data center. Should a failure occur in our primary data center, a failover is automatically effected to our standalone secondary data center, ensuring minimal downtime.
