BT Cloud Compute
The power to build your own cloud solutions
to serve your specific business needs
BT Cloud Compute is the next generation for On Demand Compute: a self-serve cloud service
allowing you to request, deploy and manage your own public and private infrastructure, including
virtual machines, networks and storage. You get the resources and expertise to quickly put in place
a complete cloud solution to meet the day-to-day challenges of your business.
Key Benefits
• Cost efficiency. Pay only for what you use; your costs are aligned
to your business needs, and you could reduce them by
up to 40%
• Faster, more agile. Adapt your service and respond to new
challenges in seconds; deploy new applications as you
need them
• Enterprise-class security. Offers resilience and assured availability
at 99.95%
• Enhanced service levels. Complete end-to-end solution that puts
your needs first; it’s about service, rather than reliance
on hardware
• Cloud flexibility and scalability. Scale your public and private clouds
to match your changing needs, and bring in new applications as you
need them
• Environmentally efficient. Virtualisation technology means less
space required, less power consumed and fewer emissions produced
• Global service, delivered locally. Global service using local
infrastructure and support desks in key regions. You know where
your data is hosted at all times and you can communicate and
contract under the jurisdiction of the local law helping you meet
compliance and assurance requirements
Cloud Compute offers you all the advantages and reassurances of
one of the world’s most extensively connected range of network
cloud services. It can be scaled globally, yet remains directly focused
on your local business requirements.
BT Compute
It can be integrated and managed across hybrid environments,
addressing private and public needs. Cloud Compute also allows you
to employ the specific advanced technology that best benefits your
organisation, offering more operational efficiency and better value
from your capital spend. It removes complexity and provides the
highest levels of choice, flexibility and control, as well as enterpriseclass security.
With the growing challenges and opportunities presented by the
emergence of a global services market, Cloud Compute gives you the
power to launch your own business-specific service quickly, reliably
and cost effectively.

BT Cloud Compute
The power to build your own cloud solutions to serve your specific business needs
Why BT

• Load balancing: Service supports creation of a load balanced pool
of servers using (VIP) addresses – multiple algorithms available
• Virtual LANs (vLANs): By default, only one network (Primary
Network) will be present which is firewalled; additional ‘private’
networks (virtual LANs) are supported
Server provisioning
You can select attributes for each virtual machine, modify some of the
attributes, and copy attributes to create another
virtual machine.
• Hypervisor: Service supports a number of different hypervisors
