A virtual private cloud (VPC) is a virtual private space within a public cloud infrastructure. Simply put, a VPC allows you to build a complete data centre infrastructure using software instead of hardware. You get an isolated and secure environment where you can launch and manage everything from virtual machines and routers to load balancers and subnets. Launch your applications in minutes or hours instead of days or weeks!

A VPC can be used to deploy applications, run advanced websites, store and process data, run analytics and connect to local data centres. You benefit from the scalability and flexibility of the cloud while enjoying a level of security similar to that of a data centre. The difference is that you don’t have to spend resources on managing the physical infrastructure. You save both time and money by focusing on your business logic, while Bahnhof takes care of the infrastructure.

With Bahnhof, you also get better control over your costs thanks to our prepayment and automatic balance replenishment features. In other words, you only pay for exactly the resources you use and there are no surprises at the end of the month.

The flexibility and scalability make a VPC suitable for many users in different industries. Some typical VPC users are:

  1. Large Enterprises: Large enterprises often use a VPC to run mission-critical applications, manage large databases and run complex, large-scale data analyses. For them, it is important to be able to scale resources up and down depending on business needs.

    Another benefit is cost efficiency. With VPC, no staff is needed to manage the physical infrastructure of a data centre. Large companies save time and money by focusing on their business logic, while Bahnhof takes care of the infrastructure.

  2. Tech startups: There are two big reasons for startups to use a VPC: scalability and cost efficiency. With a VPC, you get access to high-performance computing resources without making large investments in hardware. The scalability simply allows startups to expand their infrastructure as their business grows. With Bahnhof, it takes seconds to scale up or down, and you only pay for what you actually use.
  3. E-commerce Businesses: E-commerce companies use VPCs to power their websites and manage large amounts of customer data collected. The ability to handle increased traffic with short notice (e.g. during sales events) is in many cases critical to the business.
  4. Healthcare and Financial Institutions:: These organisations handle sensitive data that requires a high level of security and confidentiality. Bahnhof’s VPC provides everything needed for a secure and private environment. All operations take place in Sweden, in our own data centres. Our VPC is therefore fully GDPR compliant – an important difference compared to US cloud services that are subject to the US Cloud Act.
  5. Research Institutions and Universities:: These organisations often need to process large amounts of data, run complex simulations or perform demanding computational tasks. With VPCs, they can do all this in a flexible and cost-effective way compared to traditional data centres. Need more resources for a temporary project? No problem – they are seconds away.
  6. Software companies:: VPCs are often used to create isolated environments for developing, testing and deploying applications. The ability to directly control network configurations in a VPC makes it easy to replicate production environments.
  7. Government Agencies: Agencies that handle sensitive data often use VPCs because of the security aspects. They need complete control over their data, without exception. At the same time, they benefit from the flexibility and scalability of cloud resources.

    With Bahnhof VPC, all operations take place in Sweden, in our own data centres. This makes our VPC fully GDPR compliant – an important difference compared to US cloud services that are subject to the US Cloud Act.

VPS is a simpler version of VPC and consists of just a single virtual server and a public IP – no more, no less. It is easy to start with and suitable for individuals and businesses with low requirements or limited technical expertise.

With a VPC, you get a more advanced and feature-rich solution, with superior flexibility and scalability. If a VPS corresponds to a single server in a data centre, a VPC is the entire data centre! The number of instances is unlimited.

While a VPS may seem simple and straight-forward at first, it is extremely limited. The long-term benefits of VPC are enormous. With a VPC, you are not only preparing for your current needs, but future-proofing your company’s digital infrastructure.

VPCs are for businesses that want to utilise the full potential of the cloud, whether they are a growing start-up or an established company.
