> Partnering with UKCloud

Partner Quote: Sundown Solutions

Our partnership with UKCloud was formed by their ability to meet our strict requirements around data sovereignty and the sovereignty of those staff that operate and maintain their infrastructure. The move to UKCloud went incredibly smoothly from both a technology and regulatory point of view, which is something we appreciated greatly as our expansion and roll out into other areas has been hampered by COVID. Since becoming a partner, we have been delighted with their innovative and creative marketing initiatives, which have enabled us to promote our solutions effectively to a receptive public sector audience

Who we work with

1. Independent Software Vendors

Our multi-cloud experts work with our Independent Software Vendor’s (ISVs) to accelerate their transformation. We understand that the challenge goes far beyond the technical issues of building a secure and scalable SaaS solution; it is about a new operating model, a new approach to infosec and compliance, a new approach to sales and marketing, and much more.​
