Our cloud services provide flexibility in order to meet changing business demands, the potential to deliver cost savings, increased productivity and efficiency. Based on your business requirements, we are able to deliver private or hybrid cloud services spanning Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), disaster recovery, cloud backup and cloud archiving.
For UK public sector, we partner with Skyscape Cloud Services to deliver a highly secure infrastructure on which to base services upon.
Our Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provides customers with on-demand, scalable compute resources to deliver transformational projects. “IaaS provides customers with a virtual data centre in which they build, configure and control their virtual machines (VMs), with their own self-managed firewall and full API for programmatically controlling their compute estate — all for a simple, low, hourly price per VM.”
DR as a Service removes the need for an organisation to deploy and maintain a secondary data centre under its ownership to enable a DR solution. Instead, organisations can increase their focus on their primary systems and simply replicate their data to the Skyscape platform, where the data and virtual servers will be securely stored, and can be rapidly spun up when a DR scenario is invoked. Organisations remove or avoid the expense of managing and maintaining a replica of their primary systems, and instead enjoy a simple OPEX-based utility-style billing model for their DR platform.
Cloud Storage from Skyscape is a secure next-generation storage platform designed to address a wide variety of use cases. It’s based on object storage technology which is natively optimised for cloud storage in terms of scale, resilience and accessibility.
Traditional storage solutions are typically characterised by large capital expenditure and an intensive management and support burden, and forever swing between under-capacity and over-capacity. Cloud Storage benefits customers as there are no upfront costs and no minimum term commitments, customers merely pay for what they actually use, when they use it.
In addition, we offer Primary Storage in the Cloud, based on traditional network-attached storage (NAS) technology. Primary Storage in the Cloud enables organisations to gain the benefits of the Skyscape Assured cloud platform for a single-tenant (private cloud) storage infrastructure. This service offers an increase in both performance consistency and data security over traditional public cloud storage options.
