datasheet basic managed vm

Basic Managed VM

UKCloud offers compute resources as an unmanaged service. These means that, although we manage the underlying Infrastructure, we don’t manage tasks such as operating system patching, antivirus definition updates and virtual machine (VM) monitoring and rebooting. Although the majority of customers perform these actions themselves, we offer the Basic Managed VM service for customers who don’t have the time, resources or experience to manage their VMs.

compute as a service datasheet

Compute as a Service

The IT estate of the UK public sector is undergoing tremendous transformation. There is pressure to optimise the running of existing business processes, while developing new capabilities to match the citizen’s desire for everything to be on demand and online. Government-led initiatives, such as digital by default and the Cloud First policy, have led to the UK public sector embracing cloud computing to deliver the business goals at the centre of their strategy.

compute intensive infrastructure datasheet

Compute Intensive Infrastructure

The inherent scale and elasticity of cloud makes it an ideal environment for large- scale compute-intensive workloads such as Grid Engines, High Performance/ Throughput Compute (HPC/HTC) and Massively Parallel Processing (MPP), some of which have an enduring requirement for large amounts of processor cores and memory.

disaster recovery and the cloud

Disaster Recovery to the Cloud

UKCloud has designed and deployed a highly resilient, highly available and secure cloud architecture. However, when building in the cloud it is key to adopt good Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) design principles and, in particular, to design for application availability. It is important to consider what plans you have in place if storage or compute resources become unavailable, connectivity is lost or if the application become unresponsive.

Enterprise compute datasheet

Enterprise Compute Cloud

Unlike cloud-native applications, enterprise applications were designed in the age of virtualisation and traditional hosting. These workloads support a wide variety of business processes: from back-office systems (such as payroll) to line-of-business applications (such as case management). Some enterprise applications have particular requirements in relation to resilience, assurance, and connectivity to legacy systems and secure communities of users.
