Bringing together the best of both worlds.

Our exciting partnership with Microsoft demonstrates our belief that there is a right cloud platform for every workload. Together, we will harness the innovation of Microsoft’s Intelligent Cloud services within our award-winning government-grade multi-cloud environment – addressing the service, connectivity and diversity requirements of UK Public Sector organisations and their industry partners.

UKCloud for Microsoft Azure provides you with new options to harness Microsoft Azure alongside other cloud platforms including Oracle, VMware and OpenStack. This gives you the flexibility to accommodate diverse workloads within a low latency, accredited platform with native connectivity to non-cloud workloads in Crown Hosting and the networks which are vital to the public sector such as PSN,N3/HSCN, Janet and RLI.

Additionally, UKCloud provides the benefits of local and specialist customer service and support. Our multi-cloud experts will help you with your architecture, Information Assurance, migrations and on-going support.  We’re big enough to cope, but small enough to care – and every customer benefits from having a named Technical Account Manager as well as a UK-based 24/7 service desk and Network Operations Centre (NOC) that provides a 15-minute response to Priority 1 incidents, at no extra cost.

Trusted. Flexible. Specialist. It’s Azure Cloud, on your terms.
