UKCloud is home grown, home owned and dedicated to serving the UK Public Sector. Our cloud platforms are all situated within the secure Government-grade Crown Hosting environment which we call Crown Campus.
UKCloud is the most connected cloud provider to secure government networks; it is a certified Public Services Network (PSN) service provider, has historically been an N3 aggregator and continues to deliver similar assurance services and connectivity via the Health and Social Care Network (HSCN). We offer other connectivity options including Janet, a network used by education organisations and RLI, a high-security network for defence and industry partners.
Cloud computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers to store, manage and process data, rather than use your own local servers (managed by you) or dedicated servers in a data centre managed by a third party. NIST, the US Government’s National Institute for Standards and Technology, has created a definition of cloud service which has been adopted by the Cabinet Office and G-Cloud and is being used as the common definition across the UK Public Sector.
