Digital Transformation is hard; meet the Multi-Cloud experts

Our multi-cloud expertise

We place the right workload, on the right cloud, in the right place.

There is an easy way to migrate existing systems (such as Oracle and VMware) into the cloud, giving you time and space to transform those traditional systems into cloud native architectures (using Azure and OpenStack). You can avoid lock-in to a single cloud and benefit from competition, delivering you better value and innovation, without compromise.

We know there is no ‘One-cloud-fits-all’ for the UK Public Sector.

Each cloud has unique characteristics that make it great for some things but sub-optimal for others. So that you don’t have to compromise, we deliver all the major cloud environments within our pioneering multi-cloud platform.
