Doing more for less; reducing costs and improving agility

Your IT budget is increasingly constrained, so how does cloud help? Let us show you how.

  • Avoid refresh projects by substituting your datacentre with cloud
  • Tap into cloud capacity to avoid expanding your on-premises environment
  • Use cloud as a flexible and cost-effective foundation for your very next project

These are just some of the ways UKCloud can help you begin your cloud journey. Learn how hundreds of public sector projects benefit from true commercial flexibility with no lock-in.

We ensure your existing applications and skills aren’t left behind

Not everyone can abandon the old and focus on the new; our platform uses familiar technologies so you can harness your existing capabilities

  • Different clouds for different workloads; multi-cloud gives you new options
  • Bring together cloud and non-cloud in the government-grade Crown Campus
  • Reduce your lock-in risk of proprietary vendors and incumbent providers

Your on-premises or outsourced datacentre is full of diverse technologies. Learn how migrating to multi-cloud will reduce waste and inefficiency by modernising without the risk of replatforming

Capacity management is all the more difficult with finite resources

Whether you have a purpose-built datacentre or a computer cupboard; capacity issues cost you time and money. UKCloud can help:

  • Move seldom used data to the cloud to free-up capacity
  • Use the cloud for unpredictable Test & Development environments
  • Migrate from on-premises to the cloud for elasticity and scale

Elastic scaleability is one of the biggest benefits of cloud. Learn how to kill two birds with one stone by using cloud to address your capacity challenges.

With power comes responsibility; ensuring your teams don't overspend

The self-service and limitless capacity of cloud can create budget issues if your teams don’t use resources prudently

  • Avoid expensive hidden costs with a simple and transparent pricing model
  • Work with our cloud experts to review and optimise your solutions
  • Use a combination of non-cloud and multi-cloud solutions for different needs

With UKCloud you can choose to go it alone, or use our expert Cloud Architects, DevOps Consultants and Technical Account Managers to review and optimise your cloud solutions.
