E-Cloud infrastructure with PCI DSS

Virtual infrastructure is an IaaS service based on the VMware product stack for fintech companies. The cloud infrastructure has passed the PCI DSS information security standard certification.

This means that the measures we take to protect the infrastructure meet the requirements of the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Board. By hosting your IT infrastructure on a certified cloud platform, all you have to do is audit your software and its administration.

With PCI DSS, we build the infrastructure for all companies that work with payment data: government projects, banks, e-commerce, retail, operators of payment infrastructure services, etc.

GigaCloud was the first Ukrainian cloud operator to receive a certificate of compliance with the PCI DSS information security standard.

PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is an international standard that regulates the information security of Visa and MasterCard credit card data. Every company that obtains, transfers or stores data on international cards of their users, including primary card number (PAN), holder’s name, validity period and service code, must comply with it.

To successfully pass the certification, companies must ensure the security of their customers’ payments on three levels:

  • Physical (security of storage of physical equipment);
  • Virtual (security of virtual infrastructure);
  • Software (software security).

The cloud operator is in charge of the following:

  • control of access to information resources and infrastructure;
  • network shielding;
  • protection against all types of unauthorised access;
  • regular infrastructure scanning to identify potential threats and vulnerabilities;
  • backup copies of disks of virtual machines;
  • Infrastructure administration in accordance with the PCI DSS requirements.

Thus, the term of the PCI DSS audit and the cost of implementation and support of an adequate level of data protection are drastically reduced. The company will have to certify only the software level. Virtual-level security is ensured by GigaCloud. Equipment security is guaranteed by data centres with PCI DSS where we host the infrastructure, GigaCenter and BeMobile.

Capabilities of cloud infrastructure

Managing dedicated resources

Independently manage the cloud infrastructure, create and delete servers, distribute resources between them, configure network connections, perform backups and more.

Building any network infrastructure

Any topology of L2/L3 networks, as well as the powerful functionality of VMware NSX, is available in every project of your E-Cloud, regardless of its size and complexity

Freedom to choose OS and any other VM templates

When creating your own project based on E-Cloud, choose whatever you need to implement your tasks, including any templates of virtual machines and operating systems

Resources for creating a hybrid cloud

You can create any hybrid infrastructure by combining E-Cloud, your own equipment, colocation services from GigaCentre and organisation of communication channels from GigaTrans


Benefits of cloud infrastructure

Protection of payments data

Protection of payments data

Acceptance, transmission and storage of payment card data are guaranteed by the PCI DSS certificate.

The highest level of information security

The highest level of information security

The high level of information security management in the cloud is ISO 27001, ISO 27701, CIPS and PCI DSS certified.

Reliability and fault tolerance

Reliability and fault tolerance

The cloud infrastructure is hosted in two TIER III data centres. This allows us to build fully reserved IT landscapes of any complexity.

Optimise IT infrastructure costs

Optimise IT infrastructure costs

Instead of capital costs for purchasing and updating physical IT equipment, there are planned operational costs.

Additional services

vCloud Avaliability

The main goal of vCloud Availability is to ensure the uninterrupted operation of
services, that is, the implementation of Disaster Recovery as a Service in the
virtual infrastructure on VMware. With vCloud Availability, you can manage the
virtual infrastructure in the primary and backup data centre. The service
performs two functions:

DRaaS to protect virtual machines from failure. A copy is created for the selected
virtual machine and replication is configured. If the primary virtual machine
fails, a full copy of it will start and work will continue without downtime.

Migration: in this mode, with the help of vCloud Availability, you can move virtual machines from one site to another.

Disaster Recovery as a Service

Disaster Recovery as a Service is a backup virtual data centre to replicate the client’s
IT infrastructure into along with all the applications deployed in it. In case
of a disaster in the main infrastructure, or even during its maintenance, you
can switch to the backup infrastructure in a few minutes, ensuring
uninterrupted operation. At the same time, maintaining inactive backup
infrastructure costs only a few percent of the cost of the main infrastructure.

Backup as a Service

Backup as a Service is a data backup service in cloud storage. BaaS is the most reliable way to protect your data from loss in case of hardware or software failure, human error or hacker attacks. The E-Cloud backup service is built using Veeam solutions.

Veeam is the world’s leading developer of data backup solutions. Use Veeam Backup and Replication to configure a copy plan, selectively restore data, and automatically make the required number of backup copies of the required type. E-Cloud will allow you to do the following:

  • Backup of cloud infrastructure in E-Cloud
  • Creation of backup copies from the client’s cloud to E-Cloud
  • Creation of backup copies of physical servers and individual computers to E-Cloud

vCloud Extender

vCloud Extender is a module used to migrate virtual machines from the company’s servers to the provider’s cloud. At the same time, it facilitates a warm migration. That is, it allows moving virtual machines with almost no downtime, without breaking the connection between virtual machines that have already been moved and those that are still running on their own infrastructure.

Cloud Storage

GigaCloud cloud storage is a place to store data based on the NetApp hardware data storage system (DSS) of the FAS series.

Data storage systems allow creating completely isolated environments, where a separate ipspace (VLAN and IP addressing) and quotas for storage size are allocated. You can also choose the access protocol to this storage.
