UKCloud worked quickly to understand the challenges we face in Higher Education and identified how they could provide a solution that would both reduce costs in the short to medium term but also provide us with the flexibility to exploit the latest VMware capabilities as we continue to expand and change our needs.

UKCloud recognised they could help us achieve cost efficiencies as they had done for other Universities. From first contact, we were impressed with UKCloud’s knowledgeable, consultative approach. They took the time to understand our circumstances, strategic direction, commercial position and worked with us to deliver a solution that met our needs. The team at UKCloud are very responsive and have been fully engaged with us throughout the scoping, procurement and on-boarding process – which feels like it has been almost too easy! We look forward to continuing our relationship with UKCloud going forward.

We went to market seeking a partner to help us on our journey to the cloud in 2019, using Microsoft Hybrid technologies. During the tender process we were impressed with UKCloud’s technical knowledge, involvement and commitment to the Azure community, clear understanding of our ambitions and flexibility in approach. The project itself has had its challenges, but throughout, the UKCloud team have demonstrated skilful agility as well as tenacity to be able to pivot quickly when changes have been required and have gone above and beyond to support us.

Driving Transformation in the Education Sector

As public sector specialists, we’ve worked with various organisations in the education and research space to deliver meaningful, IT-based projects and services that has transformed the way they interact with their staff, students and partners.

From cloud discovery assessments and migrations, to the digitisation of paper records and learning platforms, our multi-cloud, government-grade platform sits at the heart of their digital transformation.

Start your transformation with known and familiar tech

90% of organisations in the education sector would move more IT applications to the cloud if there were dedicated cloud-hosting technologies available that could mirror their existing IT environment (State of Cloud Adoption, 2020).

Our unique multi-cloud offering includes technologies from VMware and Oracle, so you can really “lift and shift” legacy applications to the cloud. The majority of your enterprise IT applications are still fit for purpose – it’s just the underlying infrastructure that’s letting you down.

Connect to Data Stored on the Janet Network

Our public sector cloud offering comes with native access to the Janet network so you easily migrate legacy applications to the cloud or build new, digital services using existing datasets.

Housed within the Crown Hosting Data Centre (CDHC) facility – you can also rest easy that your data will never leave the UK and is manned and protected by security-cleared staff. Keeping you ahead of the game when it comes to data regulations and rulings such as GDPR and Schrems II.
